Ok. So is the biggest one there really putting out 18,000 BTU? That can't be right...

Very expensive for the heat provided.

Sure.  They would draw (the biggest one, 1KW at 24 volts nominal) around 42 amps and would be the equivalent of a small ceramic cube heater (which is kind of what they are) on "medium".  If your engine and the big 50DN is running, no problem.  One would draw down my battery bank in around 3 hours.  Significantly more efficient than running a heat strip or a cube heater through an inverter from battery power.  Problematic if you are on a pole and trying to run them from 120VAC - you'd need a lot of charger to keep up.

Can I have your thoughts on these? Could I run one or two in my bus?

The municipalities are already cracking down on them and there are laws and codes already in place to prevent people from being able to live in them legally!

Hi Ted,
My analog meter seems to test OK when testing against the battery, it shows a little under 28v - approx.

Testing the negative terminal/connector on the suspect valve to the bus ground looks like the ground connection is strong.   

Hi Clifford,
Testing positive connector @ 10vdc on my tester still shows no current whatsover at the valve.  Clifford, do you know whether these fail open, or closed?  I'm ordering the diaphragm through Luke right now.

My valve markings: 
Valve - sol.opr.
P.N. 36830062
25PSI - 24VDC

Thanks all very much!  Phil

I was probably over thinking it.  We have been caught in a lot of stop and go traffic lately. Hasn't dropped below 90 but was hoping it was simple change.  Extra tank is easy as i have a fitting  for rear shop air that is plug and play.   Bob

It will not be long before town and cities start cracking down on these tiny house and start making new building codes to keep them out. On the show it looks like build a unit and just tow it to mom and dads house in just stick it in the back yard. What about a water supply, sewage and power. These are additional costs that are not shown on tv. Many of them are sure to be over weight on some of the flat bed trailers plus you need a heavy duty truck just to pull them. Many of these reality shows are just a bunch of crap like the family in Alaska, always broke. You mean that they are not being compensated somehow for doing the show.

The 550 made plenty of air for 18 wheeler with air bags and brakes on the truck and trailers should be plenty for a bus you would think
