I apparently have one on my bus. I know absolutely nothing about it. I would appreciate any info.

All I have heard indicates you might not want to use it. Some reports of safety issues (aka fire warning)
here's a search link to theSamba.com where all your answers can probably be found. (good engineers there say they are not a problem, but I don't trust them myself)

When it worked, the one that I had was almost too good.
1: It was like leaving the headlights on energy-wise, so the vehicle had to be running when using it or you risked a dead battery.
2: It used a lot more gasoline that you would expect.
3: It ran so hot that I actually cooked half a dozen eggs in a paper grocery bag that was left too close to the heater vent... and another time caused a tiny chip in my windshield to grow into a full blown crack. When using the gas heater to assist defrosting after an ice storm.
I now just go with a Big Buddy Heater, and a battery operated CO detector.
