Might as well know having invested a large fortune replacing the eberspluttery diesel heatere that aside from one day of snow flurries we have not needed to run it much at all, little 1kw fan heater does the trick most days early and late and we are reaching 70 in the cabin most days with sun on the windows. Condensation has been more of an issue, rain-x interior antifog helps but also discovered need to regularly poke out the alloy window frame drain holes - where does that crud come from? Bought a decent dehumidifier that is taking out 2.5litres a day, too much heavy breathing methinks, close your mouth sweetie! :o

Dang, Robin. That’s a lot of humidity. Of course, you probably have a bit of fog there too.
