Your 1st time use have someone tune the system and walk you through how the system works money well spent IMO

Not all RV manufactures are a member of RVIA ,you see those tags on travel trailers,motor homes and truck conversions,lol it justifies stapling a piece of Romex to a 2x2 and terminating at a combined built in plastic plug and box it is a Joke

My Prevost doesn't have an RVIA sticker.
Neither does mine, what in the heck is it, I have never ever had ANY place or person even ask for it.

A webasto is not a system that i consider a reliable heat source.


I would have to disagree. Like any other device a Webasto needs maintenance. From the experience of hundreds if not thousands of conversions with a Webasto or Espar or Hurricane system these diesel powered heat exchangers are reliable and fuel efficient. All of them however require exercising on a regular basis because the most likely trouble spot is the nozzle that gets plugged from the waxy substances in fuel if not used routinely.

There are other items that may occasionally need attention such as cleaning the electronic "eye" or making sure the points for the igniter are set correctly but generally speaking Webasto and other similar heaters are pretty reliable.

DTV here, both in motion and HD when parked. 3 TVís, each with its own DRV sat receiver so they can watch different programs on the HD when parked. All 3 DVRís are connected through buses internet so can watch whatever may be recorded on any of them.
Wouldnít change a thing.

The dome on the roof will pickup either Direct or Dish depending on how you set the dip switches, We had Dish forever until a couple of years ago when they raised the rates again. They still keep making us offers to come back, not going to happen, We went without TV for more than a year but now get it through the park we're in which we know is temporary, I want to find a cheap and mobile way to get unlimited internet so we can go to Netflix or something along those lines, The unlimited on the Ipad fades with cell coverage and we always seem to be where cell coverage is hit and miss,

Is that from the 1"-threaded outlet on the driver-side thermostat housing on a 6V92?

John

That would probably work well.

On mine, I tapped into an existing line coming out of the block on the passenger side. Might be the air compressor coolant line. Don't recall offhand. The return goes into the coach heat return line next to the mounting rails in the MC9. Works fine. Obviously it's going to be the hottest.

I've seen them tapped into the coach heat lines inside the tunnel, but that was too confined for me to feel comfortable cutting and soldering in there.
