Does the Camco Olympian Wave 3 Catalytic Safety Heater for Small RVs # CAM57331 Require Venting


On the smallest Camco catalytic heater , I suspect they are not vented for combustion, air intake, How about Carbon Monoxide gasses, It says it is for trailers RV up to 12foot My little self made custom camper-utility trailer combo is 6foot high x about 7foot wide x9foot ? 10 long, It is vented by windows on each side, roof vent, and two permanent louvers 8x8inch on the side walls near the ceiling, I have used a Heater Buddy , the small one, but never leave it on while sleeping,, ? Many years ago I had a Scotty Sportsman Kinda-Sorta tear, and installed a very small LPG wall mount heater that used out side vents for combustion, the size of a large coffee can, Has to be at least 40 45 years ago and no longer can find anything like it, it worked great, had thermostat, and wire cage , for now researching small safe heaters, thank you


Expert Reply:

The Camco Olympian Wave 3 Catalytic Safety Heater for Small RVs # CAM57331 that you referenced does require a window be cracked in the RV when being used so that the catalytic combustion has enough fresh air for completion. If you check out the review video I attached you will see this and a lot of other useful info on this heater.

The catalytic heating element is evenly impregnated with platinum. These added safety features ensure proper elimination of the mix of dangerous gas emissions. It should work well in your camper.

Check out the I attached for more info as well.
