Diesel air heater for keeping your van & TM warm over-night.

Buy one on Ebay Click Here
Van to RV conversions have been using these for years apparently.
I never heard of them before.
Looks like it could be a viable, low cost solution?

That was a cool video. I’m definitely interested in learning more. It says it’s 12 volt so I assume we would hook it up to the truckmount battery. I wonder if it could run all night without killing the battery.

Or you could hook up a 120v transformer. I think the start up amp draw is around 10amps and then it goes down once the unit gets going.
Looked like a very economical way to keep a TM from freezing.
But then I'm in Florida so what do I know
