At least when it comes to start-up voltage

A lot of diesel heaters need a good high voltage when they start, to reach the correct temperature and make sure the plugs are glowing at a high enough temperature to light the flame. So it’s a good idea to always start the engine first – even if it does mean crawling out of bed for longer on a frosty morning – unless you’re on shorepower.
