Ok,

Ross, Bill Glen [homegrowndiesel], Bruce Knee, and myself are all tackeling hydronic heat issues in Delaware at Bruce's.

We have 4 different busses with 4 different Proheat setups. And we are tweeking the bugs out of all of them.

Hydronic, baseboard, flatplate heat exchangers, and toe kicks. we are doing it all here...

Talk about minds working all together..... This would make a great seminar for alot of our members!

Wish you guy's could be here!     Between the 4 of us, we are burning some diesel....

Take pictures and keep notes, we're all ears (and eyes). 

The hydronic system is what I'm currently working on.  I'm using the espar heater that came with the bus. Two thermostats, 5 heaters and an aquastat for the domestic hot water.  Winter / summer valve.  Lots of fun. Actually the most challenging is finding the best location to thread the pipes and hoses through, and getting all the fittings I need.

How about piping diagrams or such describing the different ways you guys have worked out.  pictures help too.  Perhaps MAK could throw it in an issue.

Don,t believe that. We almost froze to death the first year. Ask Ace or one of the others that were there.
