    It goes under the dash should have two water hoses going to it just like any car heater.

    You wire the fan to blow air out into the car and you should be able to run flex duct from it for windshield defrosters.

    Recirculated hot water.
  4. I see no water hose connections - are you guys sure it isn't an Electric Heater?

    That's how I read it, too. Electric. No mention of water.

    Looks like its just a 12 volt self contained electric heater. Not much of a description in the ad.

    Why not give them a call, I'm sure they would be more than happy to tell you how it works.

    If it's purely electric, I would think my answer on how it would work would be, Not Very Well. It takes way too much current at 12v to create much useful heat.

    I've had one of those. It's a hot water heater. Macs sells the same thing for $270.

    Thanx. Im in europe, that why im not calling, but other than that, my doubt was exactly that, water or electric?
    If its a water heater it could do. I only have windshield defroster on my daily, and a second unit would help.

    So, any other alternatives? Even vintage stuff, not older than the 60s tho.
  13. Lots of small basic simple to set up water/fan heaters in old pommiemobiles from the 50's/60's. Probably are also in old renaults and such as well.

    I'm 99% positive that's a hot water type heater - the night prowlers guys is a Hamber, do a search, they have a thread going now about there site getting jacked.

    Also, here's an alternative from Summit racing, compact, 12 volt, hot water type, and less than $150 as well.
