You're assuming the diesel has a propane tank. Some don't.

This is not rocket science a water heater is called a hot water heater because it heats water and the water gets hot.

The real question is why do you call a cooler a cooler when it never cools anything.

Going over my "pre flight" check list, I found out my "Landing gear" was stuck down, also my "Co-pilot" does not like to "Pilot" my "Rig", also my "Docking Lights" won't shut off.

If you put warm beer and ice in a cooler the beer will be cooled in the cooler. I will admit it is the ice that cools the beer, but it happens in the cooler.

I live in Arizona (Phoenix Metro), and at this time of year, mine is a Hot Water Heater. It is making hot water hotter.

Next thing you know you won't be driving a motor home, because it has a gasoline or diesel engine, not an electric motor.

Then someone will tell you that your brakes don't stop your vehicle. They only stop the wheels and tires from turning. If you want to argue that since every time you step on the brakes the motorhome stops, so the brakes must be stopping the vehicle, try it on ice.....

And then.........

In essence, power-factor correction capacitors increase the current-carrying capacity of the system. By adding capacitive banks, you can add additional load to a system without altering the apparent power. Banks can also be used in a direct-current (DC) power supply to increase the ripple-current capacity of the power supply or to increase the overall amount of stored energy."
OK, I'll buy that. I'm well versed in controlling reactive load on a shipboard power distribution system, I didn't realize capacitor banks were used for that on land-based systems. I just didn't want people to think AC energy was "stored" in capacitors in an AC system.

No posts in an hour .

Time for me to throw in " Common Sense " the oxymoron !

If sense was truly " Common " then everyone would already have it.
