I chose this installation inside the van to avoid damage of heater when go off road in mood and snow

so to run it need only two hole in the floor of the van not any work is make on the car

Step 4: Control Box

the control box is make by use a box for electronics and a switch to connect to 12V a switch to power a auxiliary fan and the control panel of the heater

I install also a digital voltmeter to check the voltage of the battery during the warm up of the lighter (need 10 A)

and a aluminum support to take the box near the heater so it is really easy to remove only by 2 screw and easy to test

    Question 1 year ago

    Why not just have a flexible vent that goes out the window? Yes, with this setup it's a good idea to have a window open... if you want to avoid carbon monoxide... The setup looks good but does it provide enough heat of offset an open window?
