Airtronic air heater

Retrofitting a diesel heater in a motorhome

Do you struggle with uneven heat distribution in your motorhome or camper van? Is it unpleasantly cold around your lift bed, but roasting around the rear bed?  Would you rather look through your windowns onto incredible views, but they’re either always fogged over or covered by insulating mats?  If so, then adding an additional heater can help you effectively distribute heat more evenly throughout your motorhome, making for a more road life for you and your family.

Depending on your heat requirements and available space, a pre-heater can be installed in various locations in your motorhome, as shown below. You can see also check out an underfloor installation in the blog post "Retrofitting an auxilliary heater in a camper van."

In the seat bench

Here, the diesel air heater was installed in the storage space under the seat, near the door. From here, the heater can blow warm air both under the seats and into the cab. With an additional shelf, you can still make use of the storage space.

In the passenger seat

Here, the smallest Airtronic air heater was installed in the base of the passenger seat as an additional heater. With different vents at precise positions, the heat can be aimed directly at the cab or into the living area.

In the false floor

Here, the empty compartment in the false floor between the front seats was used for installation. In this location, the additional heater powerfully heats the front area, which can otherwise create a cold bridge, and keeps all the cab windows fog-free.
