Fitting a heater

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of fitting a heater to my IIB, but first I need to locate a suitable place for the heater itself. How long can the heater hoses be to remain effective? Is for instance two meters too long? It is not a standard Land Rover, but a 24 volt Nissan Patrol heater, which was very effective in said Nissan.

What do you think?

You can have them as long as you like in something like a Landrover. The longer they are, the more heat will be lost through the walls of the hose, which might be an issue if the hoses are under the truck in very cold conditions. These could be insulated if the heater performance is compromised. The flow from the waterpump will not be adversely affected.

2 metres is no problem.
