Burning propane in an unvented heater will add moisture the air.
Maybe the heater isn't burning properly?

ok check this out guys , what if i mount the heater itself in the space under the tv , then run both lines down , exhaust to one side , intake to the other , as seen in the two red lines , then the tank i could mount up directly up against the base of the camper so that it will sit flush with the pickup bed back wall

I see. Technically it is doable, but you will sleep with running blower in the same bad, not to mention esthetics.
I'd plan on putting tank in truck bed, on the side of camper. Not only out of the way, but you will minimalize fuel pump noise.
Some campers have door to the space, what would make refueling easy.

“any ideas on where to mount the chinese diesel heater?“
Best place for Chinese junk, is don’t buy it in the first place!

If its reliable and price is right why not.?

Smalest Espar diesel cost 3x as much.
