RE: The Emotions in a TC

I had to make the move away from my TCer because of my health. I am glad I am where I am now but I miss the TCer. I recently did a video talking about it and I realized when doing the video how much I missed the camper. I even have a post above where I still had the camper and was thinking about switching, how time move on. Here is the video I did when I talked about the move and what it took to find what I am using today.

RE: Espar type heater to replace older furnace.

They do have mufflers for them. The diesels I have heard a lot of people say that the mufflers cause problems. Likewise high altitudes can cause issues without the high altitude kits. Some of the newer diesel pushers use these as well. They can run the ones that preheats the engine or for air heat.

RE: Espar type heater to replace older furnace.

I have run both. Both have good and bad features, but I am leaning towards my Espar being better then the RV furnaces that I had. Now my Espar is located in my van so this will change a few things then a truck camper. One of the GREAT benefits is the ability to run multiple ducts BUT even bigger for me is having a cold air return. I can take cold air from the coldest part of my vehicle and heat it. My RV furnaces all took air from the front of the furnace to heat and with them being a foot or two from the floor the floor was always cooler. Maybe other units had this ability but my two units did not. I like that my Espar uses gas as it stays liquid in extreme cold better then the propane. I like only having one fuel to worry about in my van. Using one of the diesel units with separate fuel tank would work but I would be back to two fuels to make sure were topped up. Inside noise I would say is a little quieter then the propane. Maybe half the noise on my worst RV propane unit and a quarter on the less noisy one I had in my RV. BIG issue is the noise on the outside. The Epsar is like a CF-18 kicking in the afterburners when it fires. Does keep people from camping on that side of me. Maybe an issue if you run it in a campground. Myself I would not put a duct in the cab over. Heat rises and it would get REALLY toasty up there. A second thought would be a vented cat heater if you are looking for quiet.
