Furnace options for 92 SMB
I have an EB50 SMB built in 1992 with the Suburban propane hot water heater. I almost never use it.
I'm living in the van full time and it would be nice to have a furnace in the colder climates. I've tried electric heaters but they use way too much power (1500W) to keep warm (23c in ambient temps of 5c) so they only make sense when plugged in. I was using the stove for a while but quickly learned that creates a lot of water when I found my front carpet soaked. The cold metal right underneath the carpet condensed the water out of the humid air.
I've heard of Propex heaters. What were the SMB factory options?
I've read the factory furnace was installed under the couch but I don't have any room left there as it's where the converter, inverter, water pump, water tank, and my tools are stored. Is there a unit that can maybe do both furnace and water heater in the same space as the old water heater? Even though I don't use the water heater it would be a shame to take out that functionality.
