  • Adding Diesel Hydronic to an Off-road Caravan

    Posted by Chris Lloyd on 15th Mar 2021

    Ordered this in Feb 2021 I believe and installed by mid march. This kit had everything I needed to add diesel hydronic heat + hot water to my RV trailer/caravan. Very happy with the end result. This kit requires a fair biit of effort to install. There are quite a few parts to the system. The electrical connections between the espar harness and heat exchanger / fan were not immediately apparent. Needed some electrical skills to figure out how they interfaced. I did not contact support once though so maybe that's on me. Need to also know how to find and clear Espar error codes. A few helpful links included with the kit would have gone a long way in saving time on my end. But the end result I have wonderful heat at under 40db noise level when fan is on low.

    Took some time to set it up but it was well worth it. Appreciate your patience, thanks!

  • Perfect set up for my build

    I was not sure about this kit but it all turned out to be just perfect! Got hot water, air heating, and by installing a bypass valve my van now has floor heating during the colder day and stainless steel towel rail in a shower whenever I am in the shower! This RV kit is extremely impressive! Thanks, J. Sterner
