Olympic Wave Heater Placement?

I'm thinking about buying a wave 3 or 6 for heating while boondocking. For those of you that have one, Did you mount it (if so where) or did you use the leg stands and place it in an open area? What's your propane source? connected to main propane line when mounted, I guess, or some sort of temporary line thru slide seal to outside or 5-10# tank inside? How safe is the stand and inside tank? How much safety clearance do you need in front of it? Thanks for advice.

We mounted ours (wave6) just inside the main door next to the stove. I then ran an LP line from a Tee with one side going to the stove and the other going to the cat heater. I made sure I had 3-4 feet in front of it, and I put a stainless sheet behind in in case it got too hot behind it. It never has, but the couple dollars I spent on the metal I feel was well spent, as it also reinforced the mounting area.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but three rights make a left.
