    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wave 8 Heater I have had this heater for 5 years now and love it. I dry camp a lot in the mountains.....9000' avg. and this heater works flawless. I am a light sleeper so this heater is perfect.....only a faint hissing sound...no more waking up at night because of a noisy furnace. My trailer is 25' long and this heater has no problem heating it......and yes I have woken up in the middle of the night to let the dogs out only to see snow on the ground.....but plenty warm inside! As long as you have propane....you'll have heat....since it doesn't use any electricity....no more dead batteries in the morning because of a furnace running all night.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Olympian 8 Catalyctic is just FANTASTIC ! I boondock alot and frankly speaking I try to save as much as possible my coach's bateries as much as possible and Its impossible to use the regular furnace...it just drains way too much + the noise is annoying in the middle of the night....so I have now this fantastic Olympian 8 catalyctic heater which is silent...very safe...no more battery drain...great cosy radiant heat and I chose the 8 over the other models for having the highest BTU just in case it gets cold and it does when you are up there in them high altitudes in any other months than July and August. So if you had any doubt...just run to Camping World and start enjoying this unit...I know I do and will for several years !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful replacement for FAU This heater is simple, efficient and wonderful. We have a 1978 Prowler 24Ft 5th wheel and a 1977 Kit Truck Camper. We bought the Wave 8 for the 5Vr and the Wave 3 for the TC. Both Rv's came with the standard FAU's, the 5vr FAU didn’t work and the one in the TC leaked propane every time the blower went off(even after a rebuild with all new parts). The FAU was loud and required constant electric to keep going. A major drawback to dry camping in both instances. We found ourselves boon-docking at times and freezing because there was no power source. Ridiculous. We installed the Wave 8 last week in the 5Vr and on low, it is almost overkill for our trailer. As it gets colder we will see though, last night it was in the mid 20's and low kept it toasty. It is quiet, it is a snap to get going, and we love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very efficient! Wave 8 My Wave 8 is installed in a 25 foot 5TH wheel. I use it for my primary heating source, and I live in Montana. I only used the high setting a few times when it was 30 below. Most of the time it was on low. If it's not near freezing outside, even my lowest setting is too warm! I think the Wave 6 would be better suited for me, but being in Montana I need a little extra sometimes. If I didnt camp in a very cold climate, and only do fair weather camping I could probably get away with the wave 3. They are very efficient, and work better then the brochure says. It recommended the big one for my size camper. Most people wouldn't need that much. Especially if you have a backup system. I would average around 25 gallons of propane a month in the cold part of winter, but that's with my hot water heater too. I'm quite happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from cold nights in Montreal Quebec This heater has been a gift from the gods as far as warm and cozy. We have had this unit in our Class C Motorhome for two years and have used many times for our powerless sites in the mountains. Our main furnace broke down on our last trip out this year and the Olympian Wave 8 filled the gap for the balance of our trip to the 1000 Islands in Ontario Canada.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HEAT with no draw on battery. As we do mostly dry camping I seldom use the RV's furnace. I use the Olympian heater instead. It requires NO battery power and is almost perfectly silent (you have to put your ear right up next to it to hear it at all). It's propane consumption is much less than that of a regular RV furnace. I have a 2004 Titanium 32E34 5th wheel trailer which can effectively be divided in half by closing the door between the living, dining, cooking area and the bedroom, bathroom area. The heater easily keeps the living portion of the trailer toasty warm with outdoor temperatures a little below freezing. We leave the small kitchen window open about 3/4 inch and the roof vent open about 1/2 inch. We turn the heater off when going to bed and back on again about an hour before rising. The furnace is set to come on at 55 degrees but it seldom does during the night. I highly recommend this heater. I have owned one of these heaters for 5 years now and it has performed flawlessly since day 1.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from heater i do allot of dry camping in the mountains during hunting season were it can get 5 degrees or colder and it keeps my 27ft trailer plenty warm and it keeps it from freezing up. This is the best way to heat the trailer with out having to run a generator all the time to keep your battery charged.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good investment We bought our first Wave 8 heater from Camping World for our 26 foot Dutchman 5th wheel. It was one of the best purchases we made. It kept the camper toasty warm even at 10,000 feet in Wyoming during October. We sold that camper and bought a new 36 ft Attitude 5th wheel toy hauler 5 years ago. One of our first purchases for it was another Wave 8 heater. It also keeps this camper warm while elk hunting in October in sub- freezing weather . It is quiet and doesn't require any electricity to operate it. (Quite a plus when you want to keep your camper warm overnight and don't have a current bush to plug into or want to run a generator.) The only drawback with this heater is after about 5-7 years, you have to send it back to the factory to have a new pad installed in it as the old one will become contaminated with impurities and wont stay lit. With that being said I still think the Wave Heater is a very sound investment for a camper and would not let that deter me from having one in our camper.

    Is the venting for O2 only or does this also produce Carbon Monoxide

    Asked by: Walt
    Oxygen is necessary for the catalytic pad to burn properly. If there is not enough fresh oxygen for the heater, it can produce high levels of carbon monoxide as a byproduct of improperly burned propane. Due to the design of a catalytic heater, hypoxia is more likely to occur before CO poisoning if there is not enough ventilation.

    It says great for RV's but says it must be in a vented area. Does it have an oxygen depletion sensor to shut it off if the oxygen gets too low?

    Asked by: Rick
    No, the Olympian Wave catalytic heaters do not have an oxygen depleting sensor.
