I have three Wave 3000 BTU models. Bring in Oxygen?
Let me assure you that my bus is NOT air tight. If it was, I would leave a window open a half inch. As it is, I have enough air coming in from my front door.

Presently, I also use Electric oil filled heaters, therefore, I only use one of my catalytic heaters. My electric blanket keeps me toasty at night.

I sleep with my coveralls, wool hat, socks, and if it is cold enough, I get in my sleeping bag.

As I am writing, it is 47 degrees in the bus. Yes, it is cold.

thanks Accordion, im pretty sure my bus is not air tight either, when ever they give a warning like that about adequate oxygen it worries me, but i dont want to be leaving windows open. 47 degrees is pretty cold to hang out in Accordion, try to stay warm where you are at, its hard to type at those temps.

I ran the propane lines to the range today. stove is working well. the line goes from one side of the bus to the other, over the frame and the drive shaft. here are some pictures of how i attached everything together, and secured the line to the bottom of the bus:
