Today I installed the passenger seat swivel base. I really like the use of space. The chair is much more comfortable (to me) than the dinette seating or the jack knife sofa.
The swivel base didn’t swivel at first. I had to remove the locking pin and loosen the nut that at the center of the mechanism. This turned out to be a 30 minute diversion. Nonetheless, the rest of the installation was pretty easy. Rotating the chair is not all that difficult — just moving the seat back and forth to clear the pillar and the doghouse. After sitting in the chair and staring at the furnace for a while, I’ve pretty much decided to yank the furnace and install a wall mounted catalytic heater on the wall utilizing the available propane and 12V access. And this will give me addition floor space for my livestock.
I’ve spent several hours reading and researching the pros and cons of various heating solutions in RVs. And while everyone has their own opinion on the pros and cons of each, I think I’m going to install the 5,200 BTU Platinum Cat vented heater on that wall utilizing the available venting options. Why?
