Oil radiator

Is there any reason that I shouldn’t lay an oil heater on it’s side and put a Wilma system on top of it?

 

would give me a bit more room in the tent

I'd not risk it, they are made to be upright. on its side there would be different oil pressure risking potential faults and so on. Besides some or most oil radiators have a cut out switch in case they fall over.

There was a thread on here a while back. > Can I Lie An Oil-filled Radiator Down?

Checked the manual of our portable oil radiator. There are multiple Do Not <insert obvious safety hazard> recommendations, the final one is (unlike the others) completely in capitals / bold typeface -  DO NOT USE THIS RADIATOR WHEN IT IS LYING ON ITS SIDES.

 

But I think you'd already made up your mind not to explore the idea :naughty:
