5/8 kW truck/caravan diesel heater

I have one. It works fine and produces a decent heat. I use it to heat a small workshop. Only problem is, the instructions for the controller are in horrendous pigeon English. It's a case of pressing all the buttons until it starts making a noise. After that, I never touched the buttons again and just disconnect the power when I want it to stop. The pump can be tricky to prime initially as well. You might need a syringe or something to drive the air out. Mine looks like this one. You'll see others online which, if you look closely, are just one of these assembled and placed into a larger box with a carry handle.

Not a good idea shutting it down by cutting the power , to turn off press middle right hand button* and hold for a couple of seconds and display shows off, it will then run fan only to cool down properly, just chopping the power will eventually cause damage and possibly cook the main control board.
air bleeds through the injector when priming, it may need a couple of priming cycles , plenty of " engrish " instructions online that have been made readable.
*turning on is short press on this same button.
