Aqua Hot

Not sure if this should be in the "Technical" section or "Misc. Chit Chat", but here it goes...

Anyone know anything about these? Or know anyone who has used one?

I know its pretty much summer, but I just saw it and am actually thinking ahead hoping to not freeze my a** off again this winter.

I'm sure a drop curtain would help out my situation as well.

Here is an install on a Heatercraft (known for quality installs on boats)

http://home.hiwaay.net/~sbuc/stalkerv6/heater.htm

Seems a bit more powerful and robust.

George Kase (sp?) also has a semi-write up under the build section of the forum. He put it in place of the original heater which I would also like to do.

My plan would be to bring 2" hose with splitters to feed the defrost, some front directed vents, and the footwells. Control would then be via turning the vents themselves on/off and modulating the fan.

For some reason it never crossed my mind to do a search on here for "heaters". Looks like there are multiple solutions out there besides the aquahot. The install of the Heatercraft looks pretty good and it seems like it would be a better solution since you can cut it up and move things around so the passenger and the driver would get some heat.

Here is another hearer alternative that has been around for a while called the Moab heater , although I have never installed one I have read good things.

Chris...
I have the Moab heater in my Range Rover and while it puts out the heat, it is very noisy. I'd recommend looking at other brands/models.
