5kw Diesel - Chinese Parking Heaters.

I came across these on Amazon a few weeks ago when checking the availability of parts for my Coleman furnace.

Starting at around €200 delivered?

Seems to be a Chinese Knockoff of the Eberspacher diesel heaters...

The reviews seem to be mixed, but generally quite good.

Anyone here with experience of these heaters?

Been looking at those Kevin, reports seems favorable..... there is a big FB group dedicated to those.
Some have the control panels in Chinese, seems to be a common complaint.
For the money they seem excellent value, durability may be a long term issue.

I think that it would be handy as an extra heater in the van in case you ran out of gas

The more I see of these Chinese heaters, the more I like them.

Interesting review here.



He also has another video where he takes one apart and has a good look inside.

I just bought one of these Chinese 5kw diesel heater for my Sprinter conversion. During last weekend I installed to heat during the work I do inside.
As the van is just an empty metal box it works hard to bring the temperature to 18-20 degrees, after I finish with the isolation it will heat better and faster.
I found so far only 2 cons for it:
- fast vent speed (max) it's noisy, normally it shouldn't work on fast speed more than 30-45 mins to bring the temperature at 20-22 degrees
- the diesel pump is quite noisy, the frequency depends on the vent speed. The rubber fixing piese is too rigid and transmit the noise to panel. Tried to roll the pump in sponge and the result is better.

Generally speaking I would give a 4 stars out of 5. I have made also a video on youtube for my fellows from Romania.
