Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

Make sure you have a co detector, you are moving the exhaust end right?...just thinking of your safety

Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

i've got a CO detector on the way, please elaborate on "moving the exhaust" the instructions were less than clear.

*edit
i found and read the webasto (english) installation guidelines and i think i did ok.....

its 12*F outside right now and the heater is keeping the back half of the bus i nice toasty 20*C what ever that is. i might try to add some more heat forward...

i took the CO detector out of the house and tried it out in the bus..... ran the heat for an hour and not a peep from the CO detector. thanks for suggesting checking the heater is a power vented exhaust, pipe needs to point down for condensation. i dont know enough about venting and CO though..... under the bus seems a bit sketch, but that is what all the install instructions show.

the installation isnt final..... just working right now.... i was trying to beat the weather coming in, so the exhaust has another clamp to snug it down, and the is an intake tube, to help keep that air clean. im going to put a peice of rubber under the fuel pump too, it clicks pretty loud against the frame rail.

Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

It looks like it exits right under the floor, and would collect and then leak inside, atleast the picture makes me wonder if it would be an issue

Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

Installation looks good. You do need to get the outlet outside of the skirting. Probably a couple of inches should be enough. As long as you have a general downward slope from heater to outlet the condensation can get out. No upward slopes. I had a Webasto in a pickup that I practically lived in when I was doing expedited freight. I loved it. Biggest problem was space was too small and heater didn't run long enough each cycle.

Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

I noticed with my Webasto if the wind was blowing back to the bus I would get a faint smell of the exhaust. I plan to use a Gen-Turi. I do have a CO/smoke detector in the bus.

Re: Bookmobile / Turfmobile

im back at it again

and since i have no plan.... constant redesign necessary since my step and heater vent appear to be the same spot.

Nice thing about building your own bus...plenty of opportunities for "Do Overs". I think we've all been there.
