That's why I said strong armed monkey. I've seen stuff like that done however implausible.

Kind of like all the "overprotection" on gas cans now-a-days. They've become practically non-functional (and consequently dangerous in themselves). What kind of monkey doesn't realize the dangers of flammable gasoline? ...... but I digress.

If you make something idiot-proof, someone will just make a better idiot.

My father-in-law, a Navy Chief Petty Officer, would opine that it is impossible to "sailor proof" things.....no matter how you design it.

Here's the outside vent

And one of the side of the van, it shows I need to add more insulation as heat is getting to the outer skin.

New toys, more toys! Well, I was at one of those police tech shows last year and they showcased some interesting new FLIR stuff. One thing I liked was a take-off from military (like many of these tech gadgets) which was amazing to an old fa%t like me. In a darkened tent, large tent inside the massive room, I was holding the tablet size camera. One of the techies had walked across the tent about 10 minutes earlier on the tiled floor and placed a small object on the floor. I switched on the crazy thing and bam, footprints appeared clearly on the floor allowing me to trace his steps to the object. In my mind I was thinking those nuts hiding in caves really have to find a better way to hurt the USA because they ain't hiding so much like they think! That was probably a very expensive FLIR but I wonder if these have made it to local police force? Might really put a bite on some crime and catch n release.

OK, I'll settle for the Amazon cheap thing for the RV...

Oh, imagine the deer hunter tracking his wounded animal...a whole new way to do that but only the rich boys would have them.

Hippy! Ahhhhh that's the furnace exhaust, right? That's supposed to be hot when it's working. And they do need air circulation for cooling around the 'hot' parts to avoid damage. I'd suggest not messing with it..... Actually those temps are not terribly high, 55C = 130F. Hot, but in an exhaust pipe probably pretty reasonable considering operating parameters of a working heater. Others are about 78F and 100F. That could be near surface temp depending on where you are.
