Another vote for using the fridge chimney

RE: Is a cover necessary ?

No cover for me. My first Class C was from 1987--no problems. My second one from 2005 also has never had a cover. Zero issues.

RE: Internet! Specifically video calling/conferencing!

Hi, I suggest trying "what'sapp" https://www.whatsapp.com/ It offers end to end ecription, allows voice, video, and voice messaging as well as plain old typing. I've used it successfully internationally to the UK, France, and USA from Canada, on my cell phones (bell Canada and Sasktel). What App are you trying to use? I used zoom on my old data plan and there was a lag on my clients end, I’ll be giving it another shot with my new data plan. Yesterday I tried to use google duo Andy it was awful quality.

RE: Repair costs and frequency frustration

If the roadtrek is on the sprinter chassis you may find repair costs to be "out of this world". I allot $0.25 cents per mile for maintenance costs. So at 67k miles that is about $16,750.00

RE: Wave 6 heater

Hi Ken, I think you mean CO. Unfortunately, as O2 levels start to drop, catalytic heaters start producing CO. They do not self extinguish either. Love my oil filled electric fired radiator. Although it's oxygen depletion that is the issue and not CO2 with the Olympian Wave the possibility is there with the combustion not to mention the moisture issue related to combustion also. As for me, I will stick with electric heaters.

RE: Wave 6 heater

Not too useful for boondocking unless you wish to run a generator 24/7. I won't run a generator while sleeping. All I can say is "CheapHeat"

RE: Wave 6 heater

Hi, Glad you are alive. 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. I still won't use an unvented combustion heater, thanks. There are through the wall vented units that are more capable than the Wave units. I value the brain cells I still have left. 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: Diagnosing the error: depends on the forum?

profdant139, Have you tried using "private" mode? On Firefox that is CTRL+SHIFT+P I don't know the equivalent for Mac, sorry.

2oldman, No CO from electric heaters.

RE: Wave 6 heater

6000 btu's = about 1700 watts. In the worst of the winter I need 7000 watts (peak) or about 24000 btu's The wave simply isn't up to the task. And lots of heat goes "out the window" if you have a window and a roof vent open as is required. Add insulation every where you can.

RE: “Overnight parking.com/ helpful??

I prefer https://freecampsites.net/ It has a trip planner--and is free.

RE: Murphy Bed vs. Separate Bedroom

Second Chance, Have you operated your slides at -37 C? I do boondock in that temperature range. That's why I don't think slides are desirable for me.

RE: Murphy Bed vs. Separate Bedroom

Hi, If you were to full time a Murphy bed might be a bit of a pain. I'm not a fan of slides, because I cold weather camp. I would buy a used RV over a brand new unit as there are often multiple problems direct from the factory (it's not a bug it's a feature). Five years old is ideal age.
