Re: Heater????

I forgot to mention... we have the rear heater mounted behind the rear axle between the main frame under the bus. We built a plenum for it. My cedar chest sits ontop of the air return for the heater & fans. We made a duct for the heat and use the fans to get the air circulating in the bus. Not everything needs to be kept inside the envelope of the bus.

It's really not that hard, The heaters are in a loop, just shorten the loop to exclude what you don't want. What you want is out of the engine to the inlet of front heater, then from outlet of front heater back to engine. If you have a heat control lever on the dash, be sure to leave that in the loop.

A great plan for a full size bus, I'll agree! A waste of time, effort and (still precious) undercarriage space for a shortie, in my opinion. an option nonetheless
