Hello, I'm Luca from Italy. I own an American 28' vintage trailer am restoring. I wonder if your nice Herring diesel stove could be good for my pourpose. If yes, could it provide hot water by heater water system? And what about monoxide issue?
Thanks in advance, any advice will be appreciated
Yes, the HERRING would be fine and it would provide PLENTY of heat. You will need to consider where you will place your (max 3 gal.) gravity fuel tank. Diesel goes & goes & goes, but why not a simpler system like a COD or SARDINE? Most airstreams have a vent in the floor which was used to bring air to the combo gas/electric refrigerator. It's wise to keep that active to feed a stove w/air and fresh air replacement for the space generally. You'd want to install a CO monitor as you would with any stove. We also make a hydronic heat exchanger system that you could take advantage of to generate hot water but you are adding system complexity when a big tea pot could be used to make a batch of hot water for dinner dishes?

I am curious... In the photo of the Herring there is a motor behind it.. Is that a fuel pump or blower?
Which picture exactly?
First pic here? > http://marinestove.com/herringinfo.htm
If so, that's a meter valve (by now out of business mfr) which we
were originally planning to use with the adjustment rod coming up
w/cast knob. We now use a dual needle valve arrangement.
No blowers or electrics needed with this stove. Simple as simple can be!
If you were looking at picture 2 on the same page, in the upper left hand corner of the H there is the motor for a table saw sort of superimposed with the stove
Yeah I was looking at the first pic on the herring page..
That is so cool, no electricity.. And a beautiful stove.
Our goal is to remove complexity which can increase the odds of failure.
Strip it down to the essentials....
HERRING = same footprint as SARDINE here >
However Herring is 28" tall overall and NO door on right side.
(or any side for that matter).
None of our stoves rely on a hard piping connection to bring combustion air to the stove itself. For very tight structures, yes you would want to ensure that provision was made for allowing outside air to come into the structure. Airstreams commonly have a floor register/vent to outside underneath the old combination electric/gas refrigerator. It does not really matter where the vent is located in such a small space. We also have some nicely made all copper exterior wall mount fittings (with animal screen) which can be used to plumb air venting to the vicinity of the stove, but not directly connected. A butterfly vent cover may be used to trim out the interior termination of the vent tube. Open when stove running, closed to reduce drafts when not in use.
