Re: Diesel cook stoves and heaters - teach me the basics!

Fascinating reading your posts. Thank you.

I am clearly falling in favor of the diesel heaters, especially when coupled with hot water! I have learned from you about the virtues of DRY air in the cabin as well... not having h20 as a burning by product is nice for drying out.

Can you teach me more about the heating elements for diesel cook stoves? or link me to more information? A criteria I focus on is to keep it simple... I want to be able to repair nearly every part on my own if needed.

I burned a kero stove for years in my 38'er without venting and it always seemed ok - prior to CO meters being available. Do you think diesel is much worse, or should it always be vented?

Sail on!
