Propane verses diesel

Hi everyone,
I am a list lurker, Flicka owner, and hopefully
future BCC owner! I have a Propane Force 10 heater on
my little Flicka and I have never used it because I am
concerned about the amount of moisture it produces. I
want to trade off for a diesel version, does anyone
know of any additional complications involved in
converting the unit from one fuel source to the other?
Just curious and thanks for letting me chime in!

Rusty,
If you asking if you can convert your Force 10 propane heater to diesel, I think it is a totally different animal than the Kerosene/diesel unit, yes with propane moisture production with the propane is said to be an issue.
Converting the Force 10 Kerocene to diesel is a small matter of calling Force 10 and ordering a conversion kit, it has a different oriface and needle, simple kit. I bought the conversion and spare parts kit, think it was something like $50.
