I picked up this trailer 3 weeks ago after backing out of a 40k new trailer from a ch!t dealer that went sideways. It was a bare 22 foot sides and 4 foot V nose, I spent the last 3 weeks rigging it up with all that you see in the pics including 20 led lights you see in the roof. I installed 2 diesel heaters one in the front and one in the rear in the cabinets, 2 6 volt battery's, convertor, custom 53 liter fuel tank, switch panel with usb charge ports, all the ch!t from DSW helmet holder, jug racks, hooks, fuse panel, vents, 400 feet of wire and loom and a million zip ties and 45 hours of work and then had the bottom of the trailer spray foamed 4 inches. heaters work wicked was -28 few days ago heaters had no issues keeping up to +25. I'm into this for 22k
Chris are you running a primary diesel fuel pump at the tank to boost the pressure for that long run or are these little pumps pulling that distance? Thanks and it looks awesome!

Go to the Lock Screen and enter 1688. It unlocks the controller and you can turn the fans speed up or down, pump pulses and altitude
The pump pulses are in hertz so I recommend leaving it alone unless you know what you are doing and are prepared to run some analytics on the heater after you change the settings to determine if what you did helped or hurt performance. Most of the time when people mess with the pump frequency they wind up with a heater that doesn't work, or is really inefficient. The settings are typically adjustable between 0.5-8 hz. Standard ranges are 1.5-6 hz but will vary between heater manufacturers - check your manuals.

Here are the generic error codes for probably 90% of these heaters if anyone needs them (can't remember if they were posted or not yet).

E-01 Voltage is too High
E-02 Voltage is too Low
E-03 Glow Plug failure
E-04 Pump failure
E-05 Too hot
E-06 Motor failure
E-07 Controller not connected properly
E-08 The Burner flame has extinguished (this varies between heaters and may come up as "intake air insufficient" which means your intake air is frozen off or plugged).

arff - can you post your numbers for these changes? Might help some of these other folks tweak theirs. Didn't think so many people would be into these little heaters - this thread has been great. I'll pull both of mine this weekend and post them as well.

Yah I never messed with the pulses but did turn the fan up. I just read a few guys heaters flooded out and had to adjust altitude and pump pulses.
