I've never quite understood why gas heaters need special ventilation whilst gas hobs don't.
A gas hob is an 'attended appliance' whereas a gas heater is a 'continuously burning appliance'
Attended appliances are regarded as being in use, and attended, for a short period of time, continuously burning appliances are regarded as being in use, unattended, for a relatively longer period of time.
The amount of fixed ventilation provided by the motorhome manufacturer usually takes into account these different patterns of use. The ventilation provided may not be adequate for the extended use of, for example, a gas hob, for heating purposes.
Besides that, burning LPG produces water vapour which, where possible, should be vented to outside to prevent excessive condensation. It will also, of course, consume oxygen and produce carbon dioxide.
