Hot Water Marine and Recreational Vehicle Central Heating Systems with Optional Electric Backup

These systems are available with or without our exclusive electric heating elements - you supply the hot water and pump by means of your engine or generator, hot water heater, furnace, etc., and we will supply a completely automatic central heating system to suit your needs.

If you choose the electric heat backup, this element will automatically activate if the hot water temperature drops below 120F.

 

 Shown is our electric heat only model - the hot water version simply has a fan coil (like a radiator) on the suction side of the blower through which you will need to pump hot water.

Our powerful and exclusive 2KW incoloy clad heating element is an inherently safe low temperature element - almost identical to the one in your home oven. It never gets red hot and therefore doesn't "burn" the air.

Mounted safely inside the discharge throat of a quiet but powerful 495 CFM (cubic feet/minute) squirrel cage blower motor, in combination with our three 4" discharge grills, these systems will de-stratify the air in your boat or RV without excessive drafts.

This is a true "Central Heating System" that will operate with any standard wall thermostat, however our flush mounted digital control is very attractive and functional, giving you a great deal of control.

Ideal for Marine applications, this system works in or out of the water.

Three "fail safe" (In the highly unlikely event of a failure, these switches "fail safe" in the open position so the heater is not energized) klixon safety switches monitor this element. Two controlling klixons as well as a blower post purge klixon which dissipates the remaining heat once the thermostat is satisfied makes this the safest and most reliable means of heating your boat or RV.

4" plastic discharge grills in white, black or walnut - rotate 360 for excellent directional control and air de-stratification - teak grills are available for an additional fee, however you will have better control of the discharge air with these round directional grills.

Aluminum return grill with filter - teak available for an additional fee.

Easy to follow installation instructions.







The placement of your control is critical for its proper operation. Place it on an interior bulkhead, in a location that is protected from direct sunlight,the direct discharge of the air conditioning unit, and avoid a non-insulated engine room bulkhead that may be warm.

We suggest replacing the two AA batteries every 24 months - these are easily accessible by removing the four stainless Phillips screws on the faceplate as depicted below.

Simply connect the four color coded wires to your A/C unit by simply matching up their colors. (the "RC" and "RH" are jumpered together so attach the red to either one)
Take advantage of the programmability of this versatile controller or simply select a temperature to maintain constantly.

The controller has a back-lit display for easy operation even in complete darkness.
