Repair RV Fireplace


#ilovervlife #rvfireplace #rvrepairs Joan and I have owned our 5th wheel for five years. If you are in a similar situation, you have discovered that things break overtime. Just as owning a home, vehicle and anything mechanical, maintenance and repairs are needed from use. That’s the case with today’s project: Repair RV Fireplace. One crisp, early Spring morning this year, we were enjoying the RV Fireplace electric heater and then: Snap, Crackle, Pop! Sparks flew from the top, the breaker blew and that was the end of the heater. We are getting ready for a long trip, like the convenience of the RV fireplace heater and after much searching, found a replacement.

    You titled this "electric fireplace repair" but you aren't repairing, you are replacing it. This is very misleading to someone looking to repair, not replace.

    Jerry, at the front of the video you had mentioned that the fire place was more or less like a space heater. Personally, my self, I don't like space heaters they are very dangerous. I've seen first hand what a space heater can do. To make a long story short, I worked for our City Fire Dept. 10 years and was first on scene one day were a guy had a space heater on in his house and left with 4 animals in side. One of his dogs knocked over the space heater and burnt his house all the way down killing all of his animals inside, it was sad. However, on a more positive note you did a great job replacing the fire place. It looked nice. Can I call you if I ever need one replaced? lol j/k.

    There are 3 type of fiberboard. LDF (low Density), MDF (medium density) HDF (High Density). Each density is priced accordingly per use and perceived value of the producer of the end product.
