Welcome to CF! Lots of info here.
Why don't you just jump right in and start a thread - try the refit
forum for your wiring
questions and liveaboard
forum for heat.
Just to start you off we have 2 Dickinson diesel
stoves. The large Atlantic model in the forward area is our heat, hot water
and cook stove
. The smaller Adriatic
model is aft in the sleeping quarters. I love the dry heat. With both stoves running in the middle of winter we use just under 2 gals a day.
Good luck on your projects!
