I really like my Dickinson so far. Heats the trailer pretty quickly and uses no electrical power unless its fan is on. Uses outside air for combustion and that is important.

FWIW, my original furnace does not use any power unless the fan is on either.

I understand Jammer's goal, but I do not believe he will meet it without either a generator or solar cells (I do, however, understand the point about the sun not shining). He has imposed too many constraints.

My opinion.
