    I'm thinking about covering the blown air ducting with some aluminium insulation foil so that heat is not lost into the under seat lockers
    So do you think it will help with heating the van ??
    Anyone think of any potential problems !!

    A bit of lost heat in your lockers keeps your seats comfy and warm, plus it also helps keep any water pipes in there frost free if it is really cold!

    As long as heat isn't being lost OUTSIDE the van, I wouldn't worry.:Smile:

    I fitted blown air to our first M/H that came without it.... The ducting is already made with a coating of foil inside it !!!

    Thanks for that info not sure if mine has ?? Had a box of chocolates in the under seat storage quite close to the ducting but not against it and heating on for an evening and chocolates all melted !!! So I'm thinking must be loosing a lot of heat that could be coming out the vent to heat the van

    Yeah, but don't leave your crocks in front of the air duct, they shrink. I ended up with one bigger than the other. :Doh: I kid you not.
