I have been going over the instruction Mr. Larry emailed me prior to getting the unit. Question Paw did you have to use a fish tape for any of the wiring in you RV? I'm installing this into a 38' Kountry Star, any suggestions on saving heartaches I may run into?
When you install your new Cheap Heat, please be sure to take plenty of pictures of the installation process and post them here.
Whether or not you need a fish tape depends on where you install the cheap heat and what obstructions are between it, the power source, and where you install the gas/electric switch. If you put the switch beside the thermostat (the most intuitive location for easy access), you will probably need a fish tape to get the cable up through the floor to an opening in the wall by the thermostat (the easiest route in most cases).
