All this talk of heating got me thinking... You could put all that under the floor, and I like the idea of doing so, but I'm too tall for my bus already plus it could be hard to service. I do want to find a way to use my tankless WH to heat the back of the bus near the bed. I took out the original rear heater. I'm thinking I could re-plumb it so the hot water recirculator uses the "rad" and fans from the original heater. I could probably even use the original cockpit controls for it too.

Maybe this would be a more simple way of using hot fresh water to heat the bus, just be sure to super clean or replace the heat exchanger (radiator part) so there are no chemicals in it of course.... But you guys get the idea right?

Many buses have a circulation pump for the rear heaters, perhaps someone here might have one, I might have one if I can find it. If you go 120V you will need an inverter to run it while driving.
If you find one or point me to a link of the one you are refering too, I will appreciatte.

I know Grundfos has a 12v line of circ pumps available in Africa. Not sure if they're imported in the US though. CS0512HM is the model number. The link is a list of authorized distributors. Can't go wrong with Grundfos.

Ebay doesn't show much, maybe are called something else.

I guess I could use an electric water pump, or it has to be for coolant ?

Any heat rating I should be worried ?

How about one of these off a school bus, circulates water for the heaters. Look up places that sell school bus parts
