Chinese air heater
« on: January 20, 2019, 05:09:37 pm »
Fitted a Chinese air heater to the ambulance yesterday. Today I cut into the 60mm heater pipe and t pieced it to the original ambulance heater pipes.
I now have heating in the front and rear.
Absolutely fantastic amount of heat.

Install is a bit heath robinson due to the fact that Iím unsure of the final layout.

I'd like to see that at Brass Monkeys if you're trundling along in the ambo.
All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.

Splendid.

It's looking most likely I will have to be coming in the 110.

That's 30 year old this year.

Easy enough to fit. Comes with its own 10ltr tank but my passenger tank( underseat) was unused so I took the feed from there.
Will take some photos. Itís a bit cobbled together at the minute but working.

Shouldnt need more than a 2kw even in a landy (we run a 2kw eberspacher in the transit and ill be fitting the same in the motorhome ...

folks often get problems with fitting too large a heater ...larger than needed meants they often dont get up to full working temps and suffer from sooting up .

well worth running a gallon of kerosene/paraffin through them once a year or so just as a service (kero/paraffin burns slightly cleaner/hotter than diesel and thus helps to burn any carbon build up on the glow pin/burner mesh .

inlet AND exhaust silencers are well worth fitting as they reduce combustion noise by @50% imho ....setting to a sensible temp also minimises noise AND current draw as it reduces the amoint of times the heater goes through it's initialisation run (the noisiest bit) .

I truly wouldnt be without one in the camper or motorhome ....

Ambulance will be there. Would be ideal in your motorhome.
Also, there a bloke at Lumley selling caravan wall panels, white in colour but can be painted, £4 per sheet.
These are normally £40 per sheet!
Sheets are 1.9 metres by 1.2 metres. I bought 14 for the ambulance.

Just in case you need some.
