Just letting every body know that I also have a video of a factory installation. This is a good modification to have installed in your TT, 5er or MH. Just think not having to get up in the middle of the night to go outside in the cold weather to switch the propane bottles. The installation took me about 15 hours to install and this was streached out in a week due to me working after work. When I installed it, It was getting dark about 6:00 Pm. So not much time to work at night. Most of the installation was done over the weekend. Happy trails!!!!!!!

I have a 40 gallon (32 usable) tank. I haven't filled it in two years, maybe three now. Heat pumps or small space heaters do us just fine! Although last time out I did turn the furnace on first thing in the morning to take the chill off.

I can't wait for winter to get here so I can start saving money. I will no longer be needing my three small electric heaters. This will save me on weight and space in my RV. I will be using the camp ground electricity and no longer using any gas to heat my 36 foot Mobile Suite. Also not having to worry about the grand kids or myself knockng the small electric heaters over. I will also check into the automatic switching valve for my two propane gas tanks. This looks like a needed upgrade. Thanks for all the comments.

You might want to have your e-mail address removed from this post and have people use the PM function to get your address. Publicly posting your e-mail address leaves it vulnerable to spammers abusing it (and once one of the @#$$%%^s gets it, they will sell it to other @#$$%%^s).

Go to this site to view an instalation of this system
rvtechnical's Channel - YouTube
I think that this system should be installed in new RV's from the factory.
If any body is ordering a new unit, this should be a question asked at the time of the sale.

Thanks Paw John. Great informative post. BTW are you an RV tech or electrician? I noticed their website stated that they would only sell to qualified techs? Is there a way around that for the diy?

I have a problems with Cheap Heat .....

The problem is that this unit is not RVIA tested nor approved. Almost any manufacturer WILL NOT install it as this would then violate his trailer carrying this certification. As no technician certified as a RVIA RV tech will install it. Also the components carry a UL listing but the unit has not been UL tested and certified by UL. I discussed with Larry this problem and he has never responded to my question if and when he would have it certified. So one of these will never grace my MS.

Also, what you are doing is going to raise the cost for all of us who do not have electric heaters. Eventually the owners of the campgrounds you visit will determine that their electric bill is running higher and will have to raise their cost to cover the increased expense. This is since you refuse to stay for a month where they measure the electric usage on your unit and charge you accordingly. Do you tell them when you are contacting them that you have electric heat? No, so what you are doing is deceitful, isn't it? Laying the cost of extra electricity off on the campground owner.

I don't see where I would be deceiful to any body because when I call for a site they ask me what size hook up I will need. My camper takes a 50 amp connection and thats what I hook up to. Before I had this system in my camper I had three electric heaters going and my gas heater at one time. This system should save me on my gas cost in the future. Also when my camper is pluged into my hook up at my house the heater will be set on electric and running all winter long. This system is worth the price.

I worked on 18 wheelers for 30 years and now working in an office handling the transportation of equipment and personnel to and from the offshore docks. I'm also working to open my own RV repair shop. Proberly will start out as a work out of my truck tech. I'm also looking into becoming a dealer for RV Awning Repairs. Both of these ventures I will beable to perform these two repairs at the customer's location. I think this will be an advantage to have some one to come out to your RV. Also I will offer them my hook up at my house if they want to bring their unit to me. They will beable to have complete hookups and can stay in their units until it is completed. Look forward to help as many of you as I can. Thanks for the input. All welcome.

Yes the system works best (5KW) with the 50amp service. You usually pay extra for that or have it metered and pay for power used. You're not deceiving anyone Paw so don't feel bad. It would be nice to have that electric/LP option in my humble opinion. As for RIVA and UL approval, they'll get it once the proper officials get their cut $$.
