I also use a DIESEL powered cook top. Same story.

Check the 7 page posting here for all the details:

My APOLOGIZES~!!
Somehow, I totally missed your original thread~!
You certainly deserve all the credit for your excellent work~
I am interested in hearing about your long term results during extreme cold weather?
Your thoughts on what you would do to change anything after the fact?
I just looked over the thread and, I am gonna read this one very slowly~!!
Thanks for both taking the time to bring this project to fruition and, sharing.
It just shows what can be done, if you only dare to just think outside the box~

No apologies needed.

This forum has grown so much that its not always easy to find information now.

Besides, in the age of the Internet we often find that somebody has been there already - with our brand new idea.

Look at my example: I conceived and built something that I thought was new before accidentally stumbling upon a trailer manufacturer in AUSTRALIA making more or less the thing I though Id invented!

Wed never heard of one another until I introduced myself via email.

My idea wasn't so original either: similar methods are often used to heat boats. I'd never been around boats and didn't know that.

But it might still be the World's First Diesel Powered AIRSTREAM!

All the best,


Sergei

53, if you haven't read Sergei's entire thread about the "contemporization" of his Argosy, then you're missing out. It is one of my absolute favorite threads on this entire Forum.

My Dad had a 42 foot sailboat with an Espar deisel heater. When the boat was being built he told the builders that he wanted to install it and they let him rough in the ductwork etc while those areas were accessible.
They thought he was nuts but the customer is always right, right!!!
Well when the boat was finished and Dad installed the unit and fired it up they were mighty impressed. It heated the boat up in about 20 minutes to 70 degrees Fahrenheit and got rid of all condensation, was relatively quiet and used very little fuel.
Best thing he ever did as an extra on that boat.
No smell from exhaust unless you were downwind; but absolutely nothing in the boat.
