I have been reading propane makes condensation they also have some diesel heaters that can make a cook stove

Yes, propane causes horrible condensation problems. Since we switched to electric at the dock, we don't have near the problems with it.

On top of that, I'm a little leery of running the propane at night while we are sleeping. I don't worry so much with the Electric heat on.

Even with the heat on last night, we woke up to ice on the port holes in the vberth this morning.
