RE: Between Portland and The Dallas

"Dalles". Dallas is in Texas ;)I hope that's a typo..they're from the pnw. We also have a Dallas in Oregon, it is south of Salem. Dallas, Oregon is slightly south of Salem, but mostly west of it. FWIW I understood which city in Oregon the OP was referencing.

RE: Wave 6 heater

It might be better............but I do know this. There are two CO detector's in my camper. One in the sleeper and another in the kitchen area(closest to the Wave6). The Wave6 his never registered anything on the digital readout. The digital readout works as the oven has given off a considerable amount of CO if not vented properly. Hi, ........Would it not be better to have a window and a vent opened? That may create a chimney effect to better remove the combustion products from the RV........ Are you opening up too much ventilation? Manufacturer recommends 24 square inches. Two 18" tall windows opened 3/4" is all you need. Hi Don(pianotuna).........I'm still alive!

RE: Wave 6 heater

Bought a new Olympian Wave 6 heater for my 9.5 ft S&S Camper. It isn’t doing very well at all. It was about 45 outside and was 48 in the camper. It took 4 hours to bring the camper temp to 68 on the high setting. This is the second time I have experimented with the heater. Took about the same amount of time when I did it before. Once it hit 68 inside I turned it to medium. It would stay at 68 but not get any warmer. In my latest 3rd test I had the wave 6 on high for 2 days. The temp got down to 30 last night and it was 55 in the camper this morning. I am/was planning to use this to heat my camper this winter……..BUT……I’m thing if it’s doing such a poor job when the temps are in the 30's & 40’s whats going to happen when it gets down to zero? I am at a low elevation, about 400 ft. I am trying to figure out if it’s a bad heater, maybe I am doing something wrong, or it’s just the way they work??? Any ideas would be appreciated. Something is wrong with either your Wave6 or the insulation of your camper. I also use a Wave6 for comfort heating in a 9.5' Arctic Fox Camper. Last week when the overnight temps were in the mid 40's to upper 30's the camper stayed around 72F, at an elevation of 4,500'. Last November I camped at 5,200' where the daytime temperature never got above 41F and the nightime as low as 21F while the inside temp was very comfortable in the upper 60's. And FWIW I usually turn the temperature setting to low after the 10 minute High Temp warm up. Are you opening up too much ventilation? Manufacturer recommends 24 square inches. Two 18" tall windows opened 3/4" is all you need. Hi Don(pianotuna).........I'm still alive!

RE: Cologuard.. yikes.

Anybody know what Cologuard does with your DNA profile? Do they sell the information to another company or is it kept private? Their website does not provide any information in that regard.

RE: HOW TO: Install a slide topper awning

Nice job.............thank you! I believe that Northwood now uses a gutter strip that incorporates the awning channel, as mine appears to have it.

RE: Best thing to use under jacks while unloading on grass

I use pressure treated boards cut to 12" lengths. Lower the camper as close to the ground as possible too. Pretty much the same for me, but substitute Trex decking for wood.

RE: Furnace fan and battery drain

I have and use a Wave6 heater for comfort heating. I even sleep with it on. I have been doing this since 2013 and average 40-50 nights per year. I also have two CO monitors, one of which has a digital readout. Neither have EVER detected CO from the Wave heater. It has detected dangerous levels of CO when using the camper oven without running the range vent fan. I do vent the camper per the recommendation of Camco/Olympian(24 total square inches cross ventilated).
