    Default Mbu v3

    Anyone ever played with these? I'm wondering, burning diesel, if they are smokey or not? Could they reasonably be used inside of something like an rv or tent (obviously with an exhaust of sorts) or are they going to make a complete mess of the place?

    Thanks!

    By the time you get to the run cycle there is no discernable smoke, If you have smoke check the following, Fuel nozzle ,make sure its not coked up , Compressor make sure its nearly noiseless in operation , if its loud , change it . Fuel and air filters. they are very easy to repair , really only three main components, If any one has any fuel and air filters please contact me !

    So are they smokey starting? I guess the easiest question to figure this out- would you have one in your kitchen....?

    No not really. If yours is smoking a lot it needs to be addressed. Sometimes they smoke s little during warm up cycle and if you have it where the wind is blowing across the burner. Post some video.

    That makes sense, thinking about it. No, I don't own one of these yet. I was thinking about purchasing two of them to use as a stove top (with some modifications for aesthetics and mounting) in my camper....

    tim is correct, they are not approved for indoor use and can put out 60k btu.s they are not silent in operation and have a very hot flame You would also have to supply a steady 24 volts power supply. get a RV stove and a direct went heater

    Ahh ok. That's what I wanted to know- the indoor part. The camper I'm building has 24v service and 110 via genset and inverter. It's the stove part that I wasn't sure about. Thanks for the info guys!

    (size hadn't completely scared me away yet because I was thinking of cutting the frames up and reorganizing the layout...but you've answered my question!)
