Bettering the Sun, Dodge install

Postby mortarsprayer » Thu Aug 21, 2008 9:59 pm

Hello SunWizard,
Today we got the 32 gallon tank installed in my side underbed toolbox.
I have a couple questions about ways to simplify on what you have done. Do you have any objections to the Hot Fox heaters? (other than cost)

Is there a internal filter heat exchanger that could do a good job so I don't need a FPHE? ( I have a 30 FPHE but may not use it if you think that this could be close close)

I have sent an inquiry to the company to determine how many BTU I can expect:
190 degree water
5 gallons fuel per hour
50 F. degree input
What is the output temp of the hot head fuel?

What are your thoughts?


best regards,
Nolan

No thats not even close to a FPHE, and there are none that I have seen.
