    Heaters

    Good evening Small Motohome owners

    I recently bought a Fiat Ducato and converted it to a camper. The other evening it was a little chilly and i thought that a heater added to the conversion would have been a good idea.

    Has anyone got any suggestions on a heating solution. I have a 500w inverter and two 130AH leisure batteries and a 110w solar panel.

    Is there a solution with this setup or would i need to buy an additional inverter and / or another leisure battery and solar panel.

    Thanks eversomuch for your suggestions in advance.

    The best of regards

    Jax

    I'm considering one of these.

      A diesel Eberspacher or Chinese copy should do the job easily and you have ample power from your leisure batteries (along with a compressor fridge too).

        +1 for Eberspacher or Webasto diesel heater.

          Diesel heater as suggested above is probably the best solution. They use quite a bit of 12v to start up and run but your current set up should be fine for quite a few nights at a time.

          Electric heating isn't really a viable proposition on 12v, even with a 500w inverter - although you could run an electric blanket which would keep you warm in bed.

            Too much heat for our tiny pod - probably good for a Ducato

              Another useful feature of the Eberspacher units is that they can be set to ventilation mode which can be useful.

                You can do that with the Chinese copies (dare I say "CLONES") too.

                      Yes it's worth getting the heating serviced. It's very useful on cold nights. A lot cheaper to run than gas or electric.
