What is the power consumption? (Amps/hour) Is it continuous? What are the dimentions and clearences?

I'm thinking of putting this on my boat for weekend trips. What are the dimensions of the unit, and what clearance does it need to work? What is the amp draw? Is it continuously on, or is there a thermostat?

I have a deep cycle house battery, but it also runs the lights and a fan when required. I keep it charged with a solar panel when not in use, but over a weekend on board I would likely not put it up.
