Hi John
What sort of heater are you refering to when you say direct hook up heater?
A heater for the block (core plug heater), for preheateating the
engine/coolant before starting or a cabin heater? For diesel or petrol?
For a diesel heater to heat the cabin, try a trucking or agricultural
suppliers, or marine chandelery/shipyard.

Hi Guys
Firstly GO ROMAN, GO ROMAN, GO ROMAN WELL DONE YOU MAKE US NONE MECHANICAL
PEOPLE PROUD TO CHALLANGE THE GODS THAT BE TOYOTA YARIS MECHANICS, sorry
jon -c-w, but I had to say it.
To answer a few questions, im only asking what amps the batteries give out
because of those poople in Sail uk who have me confused about what my
battery will power. The risk of fire and , you cant run all those toys off
one battery etc were their comments. Both my batteries are brand new and I
have no issues with them at all.
Due to feedback I know know I can have a few toys once the engine is
running which is all im interested in really want Thanks guys.
The heater im thinking about is something that would not break the
bank and could plug directly to the battery. Just for a bit of instant heat
first thing in the morning in the cabin, thats all I dont want to heat my
house just my cruiser.
Just to add I have one of those water heater things in the engine bay that
you plug into a power sourse to keeep the engine flowing with warm water
during the night. I dont know what its called but it was there when I bought
the cruiser. Toyota rerouted the piping years ago because they thought that
may be a sourse of poor heating from the heater. But it had nothing to do
with the heating but has stayed disconected ever since.
Ill have to fit the triple din socket which will do fine I think.

John,You cant plug anything in to the battery to heat the cabin.
Heating takes a lot of electrical power and your batteries would
suffer. Likewise the mains one that you have will use a fair bit of
juice if used all night 7 days. The best option for this is an
Eberspacher diesel heater for the coolant. These are often found on
Ebay at reasonable prices. The Hydronic 4 is probably the best bet.
The Eberspacher web page gives you diesel usage for various heat
outputs. If you choose to go this route make sure you look for stuff
that is complete, these things have small fuel pumps and need
controlers.
Regards, Clive.

Hi Clive
Thanks, I only want a little tiny portable heater that will take the chill
out of the cabin first thing in the morning. Nothing expensive I thought
about ?40 or so might get me something. I see heaters in the US on sites
that are called ceramic direct hook up heaters which you connect to your
battery and I suppose they blow a little heat.
I have no need for a big expensive heater system just want a little heat.

Come on guys, it it really worth the expense in the UK or Ireland?
I live quite high up in the Cotswolds and there are really only a
handful of days a year where it gets that cold and then I just go out
and start the car 5-10mins before going anywhere.
OK, there is the cold engine/wear issue, but we never cover the that
much mileage in our TLCs as they do elsewhere so long term wear isn't
such an issue.
Food for thought.

Julian Voelcker a ?crit :
I would have to agree to some extent. Maybe some of you just need to
make the stock heating system work as good as it should ? When I worked
in the mountains, quite often I had to go for a drive in the middle of
the night at -20C, the worst part was opening the frozen doors, and
scrapping the ice from the windshield inside and out. After about 10
mins of driving the temperature inside the truck was sufficient for me
to take the coat, gloves and hat off. That was in a big van with no
auxiliary heating. The only time I felt the need for an auxiliary heater
was during the waits, or whenever I tried to sleep inside with the
engine turned off. Anything under +5C outside makes it very cold inside.

Hi Reno
thanks for the info on the heater. But I will not go for a heater like the
wabasto or any other one like it. I think its too expensive and then I would
have to get a guy to fit it, more expense. Its not really cold here and if
it was its only the odd day so I could not justify the expense of getting
one. I just wanted a quick sulution to a cold morning thats all, but if it
cant be it cant be. Ill move on to something else that needs doing.
