@Rosy are you taking this all in?
do you actually need a heater in Cyprus dervis?
Ok. So who's going to take one for the team and order one ?
I'm minded to I have to say
@fbnss just catching up...
I decided that for £127 quid it would be worth a punt. While I haven't tested mine extensively first impressions are pretty good.
It does what it says on the tin, sips of diesel in - nice hot air out
The controller is relatively easy to use
Error code list imply it monitors everything from diesel flow to internal temperature with safety cutouts if things don't function as they should
Given that it is cheap and cheerful I have opted to mount mine in a wolfbox which wont make it near the truck until I have tested it extensively over the winter. Even if I get one season out of it I think i'll be happy with the experiment.
I bought one last week for my campervan.
I'll be fitting it in the next week or so...I've done a bit of research, and am happy to take the risk at 1/6 the price of an eberspacher or webasto. I've had loads of Chinese copied gear with no real issues.
The van already has an eberspacher hydronic ( it's an ex ambulance) that pre heats the coolant and runs the hot water.
which one did you buy in the end?
Could you run a radiator off that to heat the rear body?
Yes, but it would have to heat the engine, the hot water cylinder, and a radiator...I'm guessing that should take a while.
Hopefully blown air heating will be almost instant.
I know people have done it though
ive done it moggy.
i have a d5 on my 24v black 80 at the min. works great. i set it up to the underfloor heating in the roof tent but it didnt work. It could easily be done though knowing what i do now.
eberspacher d5 . water heater.
Any follow-up reviews or recommendations after a few months of use
There are lots of YouTube reviews of Chinese copies. 90% of them are positive.
Yeah, I had posted one earlier in the thread. Really just looking for some feedback from @Rosy and @Chris said he might get one... @grantw maybe has one too ?
I haven't bought one of these yet but I have been playing around with a webasto FBH off a defender. The one I bought clearly needs a good service as I found out last night.
It's in there amongst all the smoke.
Over all it was a successful test though as the tricky part of these things is getting them to fire in the first place requiring wiring of plugs and a wbus controller.
Holy smoke batman!
Next thing on the list is an exhaust pipe extension
It probably did a good job of clearing out any creepy crawlies tho.
90% positive, 10% negative... guess anyone gassed by one hasn't had the chance to comment ;-)
