I've been wondering what to do about heat for my bus.
I still have the stock heater core thing with the 2 fans and the coolant lines running to the back of the bus. With all the seats removed I have boxed in the coolent hoses with 2x4's running on the floor and 2x4's screwed into the seat rail along the drivers side of the bus back to the heater.
I'm thinking of using a squirrel cage blower to force air into this boxed in aera & use it as a "duct" and put a coupple of vents in it.
My question is, is it worth all the troubble to modify the heater system in this manor, or does it make more since to seak alt. heating methods? I see the downside being that this heater would only work with the engine running.
I also wonder how long it would stay warm if you could circulate the coolant using an electric 12v water pump, with the engine shut off. I'm not worried about running the battery dead since I have a trickle charger running all the time when its parked. Has anyone used this type of heating meathod?
