Webasto 2000 Install

Well this weekend I finished on a small project, that I had to do quite a bit of research to make sure could work. I found a used Webasto on Craigslist for a very good price. Got the unit home test fired using kerosene and it worked perfect.
So here was was first major question where to put it, since the main purpose was to keep my kids warm in the back. I decided after reading several post to put it under one the the middle seats. Installed a swivel vent so we could easily direct the heat for say.

Then I had the issue of trying how to get fuel delivery, I didn't want to drop the tank and really didn't like the idea of poking a hole in the filler neck. So searching online I found a stainless collar that went in the filler neck that had a draw tube for the pump. It was very neat and easy to do.http://sales.butlertechnik.com/catal...dir=desc&q=td5

Lastly I have installed a Smart-control for a digital thermastat. I have not yet decided where I will mount it yet.

Today was my first trip in it, and in less than 5 minutes of it running you could really feel comfortable, maybe even a little hot. My kids and wife are super excited about. Now just have to decide if I want to install a remote.

Nice job and good feedback on the functionality. I had wondered if a single Webasto would sufficiently warm a 110.

Any more pictures of the mounting, routing of hose/wire would be very helpful for posterity. Thanks!

I let in run for about 15 mimutes after i installed it, opened the door to let my kids feel it. To my surprise when I opened the door, I could feel the heat rush out.

I will get some more pics and post i the next couple of days...

Well doneJason.
I have a thermo top E and it does a good job warming the motor, but no help for the back.
My kids will like this more than the current plan of blankets and a "no whining" sign. Lol

I installed a webasto air top 2000 in my top box to direct warm air into our roof top tent when in cold weather... It worked so well and I had a spare so I installed another inside the truck... Works excellent and can get too hot even in the coldest of climates...happy wife = happy life... And this was a big brownie points..

I will keep you plenty warm. At zero (F) you will be cooked out of the truck if you leave it on high. I had mine turned on during a run to RI last winter (it was 0) and 30 minutes into the drive the wife said turn it off.
