More heaters that don't require electricity

Here are links for some propane space heaters that are similar in design to the day-night heaters used in 1950s and 1960s trailers. They do not require electricity, instead using a thermopile generator, and can be controlled with a thermostat. They vent outside, one through the wall, one through the roof:

Direct vent wall heater (vents through the wall) - surface mount, 7500, 18,000, and 29,000 btu models, 18x22x6 surface mount (7500 btu unit)

Top vent (through the roof) - partially recessed, 66" high, 14" wide, 25,000 BTU and up

Great information. Thanks for it.

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

Exactly! Based on the usage of our central heat in the '91 34', we are NOT planning on one in the '63 26' do the math...
