I’d like to use one of these to heat a bedroom in a house. My question is how long can the vent pipe be? Can I vent it through a roof? I ask because there is a problem with some direct vent gas appliances if the vent pipe becomes too long. It makes the draft too strong and blows out the flame.

The max vent for this boat heater is 56" so you will probably need to vent it through the side of the wall.
Do you sell any of the Dickinson heaters that burn natural gas - I’m thinking the more BTUs the better? I want to put one in a 8 x 40 trailer that we keep on near Lake Erie.

I just found out that it is possible to use natural gas with the Dickinson P9000 and P12000 units but the unit’s orifice needs to be drilled for natural gas. Once you know the pressure your natural gas is being regulated to, they can drill the orifice accordingly. It takes about an hour to do the conversion so it would add aprox. 100.00 to the price of the heater.
Ask your natural gas supplier the delievery pressure of the gas supplied to your trailer, and let us know this before you order your new heater!
Can you power the 12 volt fan with a converter that you plug into a 110 volt outlet in your rv? I bought the P12000 from you last month and I am installing it in a tiny house on a trailer. I am wired for 110v. Radio shack sells a transformer/converter they say I can hard wire to the internal fan and plug it into an outlet. Is this correct does is there one made for the Newport?

Any Power adapter will work for the Newport stove blower motor. Dickinson does not manufacture a 12 volt adapter specifically for their DC blower motors.
