I have a ACS 4100 that I like for its simplicity and can fix anything on it and get parts at Menards or Fleet Farm , but I need heat exchangers mine are leaking internally I see water coming out the exhaust. I've been told they get pin holes in the copper over time and new ones cost 1,000 a piece does anyone have any suggestions besides getting a different TM lol.

I will never go back to heat exchangers.....
Many advantages....
Consistent heat....
Durable core tubing...

I'm using a Little Giant propane heater, works great for all types of jobs.
Mine just sprung a leak and needs to be replaced. What Kero Heaters are you using? I'm looking for alternatives to the Little Giant due to cost
Does anybody have suggestions on other Propane Heaters that are cheaper?
