Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

Here is how the unit will separate via the Velcro and then the added base is wider and more stable and allows the tilt mechanism that comes with the unit to be used. The Velcro I add to the bottom of this should actually stick a bit to the carpet. http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q399/chrispychips...

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

Here is the unit in place. The photo is the driver's view so you can see the mirror is not blocked.

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

Here is the unit assembled (yet to get the Velcro). The top is mounted off set so the unit hangs a bit over the dashboard and away from the side mirror.

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

Here are the parts assembled and the RoadPro plastic tilt base screwed onto it. All wood parts had a spray of black paint.

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

I'm making a passenger cup holder mount. The RoadPro gets a screwed on luan permanent base that is a little wider than the unit. This makes it so I can place it on the floor when not mounted to the cup holder connect. It will simply Velcro onto that. The cup holder is actually not round it is square...

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

And there is room for it on the drivers floor. It is not a problem. It is not so hot it could cause a fire or anything. It does not interfere with the pedals. Plus if there was Velcro on the bottom it would stick to the carpet. http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q399/chrispychips2000/20170429_190705...

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

The HVAC system has two air inlets - One gets you outside air and there's another inlet which recirculates inside air within the cabin. If you could position your heater near that inside air inlet and then run the HVAC on fan only, it would suck the heat into the HVAC system (with the car's heater ...

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

I for sure wouldn't place anything on the driver side floor - That's an invitation to all sorts of problems If you can find the inlet for recirculated air for the HVAC system, mount it near there and duct the hear in there you could use the OEM blower to move the warm air to where you need it - Def...

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

I am not sure how or if I will make some sort of mount system. I like that it is a box and can place it places. It however does not work on the dash that way as of course it is not secured. Still thinking about it. http://i349.photobucket.com/albums/q399/chrispychips2000/20170429_153546_zpsrzcyskwi....
