I have 2007 Adria Coral S660SL. Under the table there is what I believe to be a diesel heater but I cannot see how to turn it on.
On the RHS there is a heat control and below that there is a fan speed control.
Can anyone help me understand how to operate it - it would be much appreciated as we are heading off to France next week and it may be handy. I cannot see any controls on the dash

Ever since lighting was by Calor gas.
A maker's name and/or model number might be a start for help plus a pic of it (or of what can be seen) and the control panel.
Can you not find a manual via Google?

Sounds like the heater we had in the Burstner, it worked from the engine coolant, bring the van up to temp and try switching it on full with the engine running.

If it is one, they're designed to heat the Hab area while on the move.

Welcome to Fun by the way...

Same thing fitted to our Pilote G270, I think the idea is to keep any passengers on the rear seats warm. Operates from the engine radiator fluid. As we rarely carry passengers I remote mounted the fan speed control to the dashboard so we can control it from the front seats, just leave the hot/cold lever at hot in the cooler months.

Many thanks - that makes sense - will give it a try next trip. Thanks for the welcome.

Thanks for the info - moving the fan switch to the dash is a good idea as it’s very difficult to reach it under the table.
Will try it out on our next trip.
