The Sportcat is silent and takes the chill off nicely. Click on this... Coleman SportCat PerfecTemp Catalytic Heater
I agree that that camp photo is the ultimate for my family; no crowds, on a spit of land over the water. Perfect...

Doesn't that Sportcat require some ventilation for safety? How do you handle that?


Yes it does require some ventilation. We open the roof vent about 1/2 inch. It works beautifully.

Re: Furnace

But, I digress. Jeepers, I'm one of the worst at hijacking topics.

Anyway, it appears the "permanently lubricated and sealed" motor needs replacement, just 6 weeks out of warranty.
Estimate is $90 for the motor and $130 for remove and replace.

Should be ready to pick up tomorrow. RV centre promised to plug in the fridge so I'll be able to cry in cold beer.

Meantime, I sent an email to Attwood Mobile Products expressing my dismay, since this is the second problem with their furnace. Other was fixed under warranty shortly after I got the trailer.

And the RAV gets a new windshield tomorrow for the $200 deductible.
