So here goes… im looking for help.
I have put this off too long and now its going to get cold in a day.
Im requesting a Private message from someone who can help. I will be giving you my number so you can call me because its hard to get everything out in text.
Im trying to get this heater running
VEVOR Diesel Heater 12V, 10L Tank, 5KW Diesel Air Heater, Fast Heating, Diesel Heater with LCD Switch & Remote Control for Truck, Boat, Trailer, Campervans and Caravans https://a.co/d/4bSjQ4O
I need the bare minimum to get that going.
DC to DC charger / batteries / fuses / wireing / system to monitor battery charge
My end goal is either:
12v battery charger from the alternator
12v charger with the ability to add solar at a later date
What I need to talk about
Does this need a 50A fuse or something different?
Renogy 12V 40A DC to DC On-Board Battery Charger for Flooded, Gel, AGM, and Lithium, Using Multi-Stage Charging in RVs, Commercial Vehicles, Boats, Yachts, 40A https://a.co/d/7z8Zox5
How to know what gauge wire to use to what item.
Does too big of a wire (for safety) end up creating too much loss in the system?
Should i go with the 20A charger to prolong alternator life? It will cost me about a grand to replace it.
What size fuses?
I have alot more that pops into my brain off and on…
Please reach out. I am super desperate and willing to pay.
I am doing this all for my kitty that lives in the minivan with me.
2011 honda odyssey
I travel 6 sates (US) for work, some trips are 10 hours.
This last week i drove 3000+ miles, then this week its little half hore trips between jobs.

I need to know there is no risk of fire.

Please help me. Im begging you.
