Having used a Planar diesel and Suburban propane. 2 things that put our Suburban over the diesel are the programmable thermostat and high altitude operation.

The thermostat is set to 5am and waking to a warm bus is so nice. The Planar can be throttled down to keep the bus warm but then of course it runs all night and at 7200 ft (our fav docking area) it carbons up quickly.


" The Afterburner only works with compatible digitally controlled Chinese Diesel heater"

If you get the control module I show in the video, you have a thermostat (in celcius) with basic timer functions. For more advanced configuration, there's a third party control board called the Afterburner that is fully programmable and open source.

I don't use the timer myself, I prefer to be warm through the night
