Most people would agree, the diesel version is superior. Why? Several reasons.
Diesel has higher BTU content than propane - can be cheaper to run than propane
Diesel fired aqua-hot draws from the main diesel tank of the RV - meaning you have 100 - 150 gals available vs. 32
Diesel fired burner can produce 50,000 BTU - more heat than the propane version
