New to skoolies - 2006 Thomas

Hello, I have a 2006 Thomas SafTliner. I am in the process of gutting it, and am wondering what this Webasto panel controls?

Welcome to the site.
It controls an auxiliary heater, most likely running on diesel fuel.
Nice option to have...

Webasto

Under your bus there is, or was, a diesel fired, engine coolant heater. A boiler, a water pump, a fuel pump, all in one metal box/shelf. About three foot long and weighs about 100lbs. This can be used to heat the bus and/or the engine. With that panel, I think, you can set a timer for start up, raise or lower temp settings.

Burns about 1/2 gallon, two litres, of diesel per hour.

If this works you will likely not have to plug in a engine block heater for cold weather starts. New webasto, for the size I expect to see in a bus like yours, $3,000
