hi all
i have a 1968 cal cruising 46 with a rear engine room. the previous owner started to install a proheat cabin heater. the installation is only one fifth finished. does anyone have any experience with proheat? which is simpler and more reliable? i have 360 gallons of diesel tankage so even if I were in alaska i
can stay warm for weeksusing diesel fuel.

which systemn is durable, simple easy to install taht uses diesel?
