finally one side done.

Finally finish pulling seats on Drivers side, and of course came across this heater, question to all you guru's of all things skoolie, can this be used and stay in place or do we normally take it out. I see a in flow and exit for the fluid and I'm assuming their is a fan inside what would be the best way to remove this heater.

I removed mine and moved it up near the front, under a dinette seat. I don't do a lot of cold weather driving in the bus, so I usually leave the coolant valve closed on it. Pretty sure most people just remove it and loop the connection.

Not sure how much cold weather driving I'll do but moving it forward sounds like a good Idea. do you have any pics on how you did it or suggestions.

I've kept all three of my heaters. I have the front big one, the one that was ten feet back will be up behind the drivers seat so I can blast the heat going down the road. The other heater will be in the restroom somewhere so that no one has to use a cold restroom while on the road.

Unfortunately, I didn't seem to document that part of the project. My heater was mounted to one of the seats. I just removed it, cut the coolant hoses shorter, and remounted it on a seat in the same manner as stock up front.

You'll find just about any variation of heater arrangements. Some people toss them while others move them to the front passenger area. Will you be driving in cold weather?

It's good to take them out and clean them. There's 20 years worth of dust bunnies in there.
If you're going to be in cold weather at all you should move the heaters to the passenger area if you can work them into your build. What other heat source would you use while traveling?
