All the propane catalytic heaters need ventilation. Most have a built in Co switch but you can't really count on that. We crack a couple of windows to let in some air. Our Kozy World has a built in thermostat and keeps a fairly even temp.

If you start getting moisture on your window frames you don't have enough ventilation.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.

I have never used mine overnight. They do have a low o2 sensor. Crack the roof vent a touch and you should be Ok..

Sounds like most folks try to keep their campers 70+ degrees over night. I set my thermostat between 50-55 when we turn in at night. We have a blanket on the bed so we don't get cold. No reason to burn all the extra propane and use up the batteries while we are sleeping. Nothing will freeze, and it warms right up in the morning with a little furnace action and help from the sunshine. I get a full season out of my two 30# propane tanks, and can make an extended weekend trip without having to start the generator.
Boon docking is the only way to camp.

In the interest of full disclosure, we do occasionally boondock for one night.

Is occasionally "once a year" ?
