As in if you run a kerosene heater outside to thaw water lines, but the smell, fumes are coming into the camper?
I was just wondering if any of you had any experience with kerosene?

I would try other methods for your pipes. try getting pipe insulation and wrap them.
I don't trust those types of heaters I have seen some "blow up" and have seen fires from things getting put on them or stuff falling onto them then catching fire. If it's outside underneath just be careful of wind blowing leaves or something into it and it catching fire. Don't want that to happen. Never leave them unatended. Now this is just me but I wouldn't go to sleep with one of those on for fear of fumes or something falling on it. But that's just MY fears.

no problem other then the fumes seem to enter the camper and I told him numerous times that they make me sick. I have a major headache right now after the heater running for about 5 hours, with the fumes entering the camper!
The water lines froze up this morning and we had the heater running to unfreeze them, coming home from work, I could still smell the residue and now tonight we had to run it again and I am just about sick to my stomach.

Open up the windows some to let the fumes out. if you have a vent on top open that. Gotta do something I know to keep the pipes from freezing but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be careful.

In your case, the fumes coming into the camper will make you sick. Please be careful.

What little I saw of it one year...he was under the house with a blow torch and being very careful not to melt anything. Lots of banging & hammering & muttering involved.
If you've tried to reach him with no response....I'd say he's got his dang junk mail filter working overtime....

No, the plastic isn't directly on the heater, but around the area where it's frozen with the heater underneath, no plastic touching!
I totally understand that he wants it thawed out and believe me after two days of not being able to shower, I do to!
It's just a matter of being able to put up with the fumes and I can for a while, but then it gets to be to much!
Bend N Flex, I'll send you a PM.
