It was suggested to create an "Ultimate" furnace thread since it is a popular topic. Like the other "ultimate" threads, this is a place to post links to all other furnace/heater threads. If I missed something, just let me know- as always these are a work in progress.

It was suggested to create an "Ultimate" refrigerator thread since it is a popular topic. Like the other "ultimate" threads, this is a place to post links to all other fridge threads. If I missed something, just let me know- as always these are a work in progress.


You do mean furnace, not refrigerator/fridge, right?
Great idea, Brett! Posted Image

And I'll need to check a couple of those furnace threads again since I discovered (after I left on my current trip) that my Suburban furnace doesn't light at all now...Posted Image

Just wanted to give a thumbs up for the Olympian Wave 3 heater.

IMHO, the best heater for a camper.

I do not see one of these heaters in this ultimate furnace thread.  Does anyone have any experience with them?  It seems that this could be much safer than an Olympic heater, does not require ventilation, and does not cause condensation on the walls inside the living space.  I'd love to hear any input anyone has before I pursue the purchase of this heater any further.

I've used these with windows cracked in freezing temps and they worked very well.  I would not go back they are worth considering.

I have not seen one of these in use, like most have just seen a post now and then. I am curious if anyone can show us an installation and give a review.
