Conversion noob, not sure what's happening to cause this.

I've converted plenty of ebooks to .RTF (Word) and then turned them into physical books. I started using Kindle, so now I'm going the other direction, converting .RTF to ebook. The conversion to Kindle format works and it looks great when viewing in Calibre, but when I view in Kindle, it's inserting big gaps before and after the chapters. For example, I end up with "Chapter 1" all by itself on a Kindle page and have to flip to the next screen to begin reading.

It looks correct in the Calibre reader and I don't want to assume that's it's a Kindle issue just yet. The source .RTF uses normal paragraph breaks between chapters (^p). Is there some kind of formatting I can do in the .RTF that will keep the chapter heading and the text body together when it converts up to Kindle?
