Heater install in my '07 LSV
A few of you wanted pixs of the heater installation that I did this winter, so I figured I'd throw 'em in here.
The project took me all day on a Saturday (6 hours, lunch, and a little more than a six pack). The total cost for the heater and all the parts came to about $550, but I used some expensive heater hose (GoodYear Hi-miler.... made in the USA!)
It works great! The Hot-tubes pull out about 6 feet. If you tuck one under your shirt or towel, it's almost TOO hot. Believe it or not, with the bow cover on, the heat actually stays in the boat for the most part!
Feel free to criticize, compliment, or ask questions.
Finished product (what you can see)
Front two HotTubes
Rear two HotTubes (yes, I had to trim the rubber baseboard a tiny bit)
Here's what you can't normally see...
Unit mounted under drivers side bow seat (opposite factory sub location)
No loss of storage space!!!
Ductwork from unit
Ductwork to front HotTubes
One hose ties in at the temperature sending unit.
The other goes to the water pump but I couldn't get a good shot of it.
I added valves at the engine... just in case!
Thanks for looking,
