Crown, they can be converted to 12v Kevin a friend of mine did one I know somebody is going to say how cheap it is to do but he paid over $700.00 for new parts from Webasto but the unit was given to him   
good luck

I don't know about converting them to 12volt, but if you decide not to purchase and convert the unit and it is a good deal, I'd be interested in buying it. I'am looking for a 24volt unit.

We had a seminar from Webasto technical reps at our rally in Michigan this summer.  They were very helpful and supportive.  They would be able to help you with the part numbers Their technical group phone number is 1-800-555-4518

Although a little hard to find, here is their technical web site.  http://www.techwebasto.com/

When I get this kind of support from a company, I am happy to recommend a product from that company.

Another thought is to possibly trade someone who has a 12 volt that is not installed yet.

Haven't searched for a while but 12vdc to 24vdc converters were not easy to find.

Here are a couple of links.

First one was my choice, appearance of rugged industrial construction, lots of detailed spec's but since I last looked they've added the notation. "Motors: Running motors from these units will void the warranty.

http://www.powerstream.com/dc24.htm



This one looks a little simplistic and not much info' on specs but there are "Pump controller versions" so obviously manufacturer approved for motor loads.

http://www.solarconverters.com/product_frame.html

Pump controller versions by this manufacturer and sold by a number of the Solar outfits are controlled by a float switch across 2 flying leads.  Your heating thermostat would do the same thing.

Haven't seen or handled either of these units. I use a 110vac to 24vdc power supply bought at auction.

Hello crown.

As noted, buy the 24 volt unit and use it's value to get a 12 volt one.

The brains alone of the thing is somewhere $500, and you'll have to buy one of those for sure...

Lots of us are running 24 volt systems, you've already got a buyer up there!

happy coaching!
