That's a nice furnace. Even with the fan, it will be a very low current draw from the battery.

I do love these furnaces. I ran this in my topper for weekend trips and ran it solely off a small 20000 mah batt pack and never fullydepleted it.

Sealing up my chimney pass through. Do you guys think butyle tape on the outside baffle would hold up to a little heat? Im not familiar with using that stuff. Otherwise was just going to caulk it in.

If you think it will get too hot (can you touch it when it is running without burning yourself?) I’d use a high temp sealant. That’s what i used on the exhaust side of my Propex heater

Thanks. I've never dealt with butyle except removing it from things that are leaking. I've never actually installed it. Probably because it always seems to leak.

Going to install with some RTV which is good to 425F which is well over what that will ever get since its just getting radiant heat from the exh pipe through the outer intake pipe.

It is a Dickinson, mostly found in boats.

Yes it is a Dickinson P9000
Got it in and running now too!
Polymat going down on the sides to make it a little more cozy in there till i make some cabinets. It also allowed me to attach the turnbuckle access hole covers via velcro without any hardware keeping it low profile and low maintenance.
Cut some reflectix for the windows to help hold the heat in amd picked up some fabric and velcro today to make a double wall for the soft sides.
