Have any of you added a heater to your Prowler?

I'm getting ready to install a unit I got off of Ebay and any info you can provide would be geat.

It looks like it would be very easy to install with the underhood storage box temporarily removed, but not sure what is involved with removing the storage box.

Well started working on installing the heater today. Damn near 2 hours to get the storage box out of the way.

They don't give a guy a lot of space to splice in the Y's to go to the control valve. Feet got cold so will look at it harder tomorrow.

I never added one to my prowler but thought about putting a 12v computer fan on the motor cover to pull heat into the cab, show us some pics when you get done. Eat

Will do.

I've thought about the computer fans as well. Was going to make them so they could be turned around in a frame so you could pull hot air in during winter and shove some cool air across motor in summer.

I haven't decided if I'm going to run the defroster or not yet, I can always add it later.

Well I got a start on it yesterday. Hopefully be able to get everything installed today.

I haven't been able to find much info on installing one in a Prowler and the ones I have found don't have pics and minimal info and differ completely in how they installed the heater.

I guess if it's wrong I'll call it a learning experience and do it again. lol!

The heater will be a nice touch once you get finished. You guys get a lot more cold weather. Can't wait to see some pics of the green monster once you're done.

Well I put a T into the upper radiator hose next to the radiator.

Put another T into the short chunk of rubber line next to carb (most of the system is steel line)

The heater control valve is on the firewall under the hood.

Here is the heating unit waiting to be hooked up

I think I will have to install a shut off valve in the main line though as at idle there isn't enough flow to the heater. If you rev it up it heats really well.

Still need to wire the switch and button everything up

Just got some pointers on running the system a little different so I won't have to put a shut off valve in.

Should get a chance later in the week to work on it hopefully.
