An exposed heating element on a resistance heater can cause a fire if placed to close to combustible adjacent surfaces . That's why in the operating instructions it says to keep away from combustible surfaces.
An Oil Radiator will not expose adjacent surfaces to temperatures high enough to cause combustion.
A fan forced heater has the risk of the fan failing and shorting out creating a potential fire.
Yes , a fan forced heater will heat faster , but will also cool faster after cycling off.
The Oil Radiator will continue to produce heat during cycling , making for a more even heat.
Regarding condensation , yes , the heater does reduce condensation by maintaining a temperature above the Dew Point. It will also reduce the overall humidity as the coach warms.
There is a plus and minus with everything . I just know this works for us.
