Ticki2, here’s the link to the nearly 10,000 BTU heater: https://www.propexheatsource.com/heaters/hs2800-furnace/
The model I have in Argo is the HS2000. It has proven to be plenty for such a small space.
Installation and operation very straightforward.


Thank you

This is a topic I have been meaning to bring up for a while now . Leaks or condensation ? I have noticed wetness around the base of the wall where it meet the dinette seat on a number of occasions. At first I thought it was a window leak . Then I thought it was coming down the fridg vent , Checked all the caulking and even put a hose to it , no leak . Then I tried glueing some foam sill seal , 8” high , around the bottom of the wall thinking it might be condensation. This helped but not enough . From some of the paperwork I had from original owner it was an early complaint to the dealer . This winter while stored outdoors I opened all the side windows and bath window about an inch . I’ll be darned , dry as a bone . Our weather goes from cold and dry , cold rain , snow , and everything in-between almost every other day . What are others finding ?

When we still lived in super wet and cold country of Kodiak, Alaska, I fought water at the joint between the wings and upper skin and like you never found a "smoking gun". Now that we live in the high desert arid country of central Washington State, even with rain or snow, we have not seen any water return. I did remove most of the reflectix from the tops of the wings because it was trapping in the moisture between the outer aluminum skin and saturating the wood wing. That was when I almost lost the camper due to wings going soft and the camper almost fell over. Now with the Stable-Lift and dry wings I fell confident that we will be using the C10 for a long time to come. Let me know if you find anything out!

Well its been awhile since I stopped by. Glad to see that we still have a minyan on the Avion thread. I also see that Flyte23 us putting a Wave heater on the cabinet door. We've had pretty good luck with ours, though its a bit of hassle with the long gas lines when we put it on the counter.

We are getting back on the road again with a trip planned in late May. We're going to be discreet about it since the last time we planned a meetup with D1Trout and RastaMan they locked down the whole United States.

Alright now. Looks like we're going to make another run at the mythical Muley Point. Right?

67, I’m game for a Muley Point meet-up. It’s proving to be a remarkably elusive destination! Late May could work. For me it depends on the variants. I’ve gotten the jabs but intend to stay close to home until it really appears safe to travel. So count me in ...depending...

D1 good to hear from you. I'm traveling to Georgia in late May, so that's out. We're out of the country in early October, so that's out. I think I've boxed myself in again on Muley Point. What an elusive target! Truth be known, April is the best month of all for the area. Lets cogitate.

D, what would be your possible date range for Muley Point this month? It’s been such an elusive goal for so long, I might be able to just come myself for a relative quickie... Argo and I could certainly use a southwestern road trip.

I am planning a quick trip to Terlingua late April then on to Yuma for a few days...not taking the Avion...(quick trip)

67avion....how far south in Georgia will you be coming? I should be back by late May. You know I am only a hop skip and a jump from anywhere in Georgia..and you certainly know you have an open invitation as always.

Rasta, hey there! We are going to Georgia around the 23 - 25 of May for business near Atlanta. My new book is being published from 50 year old photos and I'm going to the edit session. I don't know the sched, so I can't be sure. But, if we can make it we will. I'll try to let you know.
