They need service. Unless you want the smell of diesel fuel in the rig, mount them outside. The service includes breaking the fuel lines to replace the nozzle and filter.

All Sprinters with the option have those heaters mounted inside since Sprinter has very convenient space for it in passenger seat pedestal.
Nobody complains about smell.

I've looked at YT but all are install in van, want to see in use in TC. Don't want to install tank on the outside and prefer to install in exsiting heater space where current Duro Flame is. If that can't be done I'll stick with the Duro as I don't use heater that much. My main reason for wanting is battery use, from what I understand it uses very little power.


Look up Explorer 867 on You Tube. He does a very clean install in a commercial truck canopy/cap. He has part 1 & 2 videos and the controller setup video. Total of three videos. His videos are very easy to follow.
He uses a two gallon boat fuel tank for the diesel inside the cap. Hope that helps.

JD, Thanks for the YT video tip, very good explanation of the heater install. Answered a lot of questions in reguards to size and space needed, which with a TC is important.

Can you elaborate? How often do they need servicing? What is involved?
What are you mounting outside, the tank?

The heated air will not smell of diesel.
