I have diesel burners in both my trucks have used them in my trucks for years..
Although they burn "cleaner" generally I'm not a huge fan of propane... way to volital for my taste.
In my experience and opinion a properly set up diesel burner will burn just as clean and is safer to use. All the heat you would ever need.

Pro: Consistency
Fuel fired heaters will not dip a slight bit, and in many ocassions it reaches Max temperature during water flow. The exact opposite with built-in TM heat exchangers

Heat exchangers reach max temp during standby, As soon as you pull that trigger, Water flow would make temperature drop considerably.

I currently use a north star

Yea northern tools .....i hve 2...kero heaters
1500$ for electric
2000$ for dc
I use kerosene as it will burn hotter use less and cleaner...
All you will need to do from north tools is to change out theuel swich to burn to a lower gpm..
Also deisel heaters will only burn when trigger is pulled unlike propane which has a continual flame

^^
the newer north stars models come standard with low gpm flow switches. no need to change flow switches like before.

mine fires up at 0.5 gpm. that's is as low as it can get. it could fire up cleaning upholstery at that setting

Loo at measurements online...
I would go with the dc as it is less weight..
It may be lessbulky than propane if you figure the tank...
You will never have to worry about heat again...
No heat spikes....i run a zipper full trigger for 20-30 minutes on some big jobs...
Also i am turning my temp down 30-40 degrees with kerosene and gettng the same heat..

View media item 3377Northstar for me too. I went with 110V as I use an extension cord for lights inside the van. I took mine apart (cut the frame down) mounted the fuel tank by the side door for easy refueling and the control consul to the TM dashboard.
I have black stove-pipe for exhaust and made it to slide in and out like a telescope when in use.
It keeps up, I can get 240 with my turbo spinner all day long.
BTW, I run a Nomad RV water softener also to stop the coils from scaling.
I totally removed my H/E, along with all the safety switches, solenoids and other crap. Much less complex system now.
Fresh water to softener, to water box, to pressure pump, to burner, to duel output QD's on dash. Love it!
