Should I go for it?

Just poking around looking at stuff when I found this....

New Webasto Thermo Top C Kit TSL 17 Diesel Water Coolant Heater 923369 TT 12V | eBay

Should I go for it to run my hydronic heat?

I should mention, for those who don't already know, Jasmine is a full size bus and not a shorty.

Would you be ok with the on/off switch this kit comes with? The 7 day timers from webasto seem to be the best, but im not sure if you can just plug on in or not....somebody? If you want a cheaper refurbished unit check out ebay.uk, they seem to be a bit more common over there. Good luck

these are brand new and according to webasto that kit qualifies for some typoe of rebate.. I found the rebate form and that kit is listed so it appears to be a current and not a discontinued model.. it is 17,500 BTU of heat.. , that would certainly help to keep a bus warm inside esp an insulated one... you dont need the timer, do it by temperature.. a simple temperature control would work great for these.. you could keep your coolant at a preset temp or connect your own timer device.. I was looking at these yesterday thinking i should order one for the DEV, esp if im going to try and go to skooliepalooza i'll want some type of Heat that I dont need to run the engine for.. these seem to be going for $1000 other places so maybe the $800 is reasonable.

I would be fine with the on/off, since it's either going to be running or it's not... but the timer would probably be the better option. Would still prefer to have a new unit vs refurb but have to look at it from a cost POV as well... funds are running out so have to kind of watch what I spend on it.
