Almost made up my mind to save up my money and go for the German made unit over a Chinese on account of the fact that I'd really need something reliable. Even contemplating a small marine application diesel heater which is about twice the cost of the parking heaters.
I personally would stay away from those Dickinson marine heaters/stoves they will smell the place up. I have installed and taken out quite a few on commercial vessels and they are a mess, not to mention having to run a chimney instead of exhaust pipe for it to work right, which the height it needs to exhaust above the roof surface would put you over height.

The heater itself may be but higher than the fuel tank, while, to me, the fuel pump should be put at the tank's bottom level.

Another option I tryed without succeding was to put a outboard engine hand pump in the line between the tank and the heater's fuel pump.

As said, I guess my fuel pump sucked air from somewhere...

Still have plenty of time to think about the heat. In the meantime, I'm back on my house insulation again. 2 sheets tonight, 3 to go.

Need to call the one on the bottom Droopy, he doesn't look to happy. Glad you got the insulation all in and ready to stay warm. I've been on the road since the 1st traveling across the US dodging snow storms, wind squalls and surviving drives down county roads that are actually dirt/rock roads. Going to have a places for a genset or going with solar or just plain plug and play for the electrical?
