I got rid of all but one bus heater as they are so noisy. If you have the room, radiators work very well and are silent. I also built a manifold with a bank of valves so that each radiator is on its own loop; more plumbing but that way you can control heat distribution and even shut down rooms for sleeping etc. Daisy-chaining the bus heaters will not allow that control.

I run my entire system off of a Hurricane heater now as my cooling system (also keel cooled) was becoming too complicated so I tossed the heater heat exchanger and all its plumbing for simplicity.
