Re: Dometic Penguin a/c with generator

Someone told us to get a little electric heater with a thermostat. We did but when we plugged it in, there was a horrific smell which immediately filled the trailer. Brought another little heater to the trailer. Took the first one home and tried it there. Barely any smell at all. Took it back to the trailer and switched them because the thermostat is an excellent feature. The smell was just an initial use problem that I think Sandra also mentioned having.

The heater fumes were from the heater in the trailer. I took it back to the factory as I was staying nearby, and they "burned it off" for me. I have not had a problem since!

Peace and Sunshine
