Clubman Heater.

Post by wakaday on Wed Nov 25, 2015 12:25 pm

Im still finding my way around our new Bus. Epic Fire and nice to have hot water for the first time.
However, i have stumbled across what looks to be a Heater under the Passenger seat. Its all plumbed in very very well but I cant find any info about it in the Handbooks unless im missing something.
Does anyone know if this is a standard fitting or an optional extra and how it works?
I suppose its possible previous owner has had it done along with the push Button Clutch control.

You don't say whether cab or habitation seat. The standard would be a Truma Ultrastore water heater under the offside habitation seat.

At around that time, the factory were pretty flexible about fitting non-standard heaters at customer request (and no doubt significant cost!). My last van (a 1999 Flair) had an Eberspacher Hydronic fitted from the factory, and the generic manual for the van made no reference to it.

If not an Ultrastore it's quite possible that you have an Airtronic or the Webasto equivalent, but until you identify it from the attached labels that's really just guesswork.

Either of the above are very good heaters, so if yours has one "thrown in" you've been lucky - they both cost more than a grand to have professionally installed!

I'll have a good look and delve a bit deeper.
Keep you posted.

Turns out its not a heater after all. I thought it was when i noticed the trunking going under the seat. I didnt take a great deal of notice. It turns out its the Charger for the Leisure Battery.

Don't worry about it Wak.

We so-called experts (choke - splutter  Whistle1 ) were all beginners once, and were very glad of the advice from those with greater experience.

Still am quite often. There's always something new to learn, and somebody on here is sure to know how to do it! up!

Cheers Dave. 
My other Auto sleeper was really basic inside compared to this one which is still basic compared to modern ones. 
First time time with Hot Water. Only had Wet Water in the other one.

Sheer luxury then having hot water, don`t you appreciate it? we had a caravan decades ago without a fridge or electrics, had a foot pump for cold water to the sink,  bought a 2nd hand fridge and had a battery in a box for the so called electrics, in France we had cold lager, we thought we were rich. Can`t beat the simple life. hugegrins
