    Can you get to see the heater? It has a label on it that will tell you the model.
    How many brownie points do I get?

    I bet it's a 4E which is the one that tends to be fitted as the 6E has a larger output and is, IMV, oversized for a standard MH; obviously a 4E would be cheaper to the manufacturer too.

    We have a 6e. It burns your foot when it's at full chat :)
    I think it's drinks more gas than the wife does Gordon's............;)

    Points to first responder? We all know where those points should be going!
    But, I would say it's a 4E if you have 4 heater vents and a 6E if you have 6 vents. I would have thought you have 6

    Hang on......it's a 6! 4 main outlets on the actual main unit but 6 vents throughout the van. Think that makes it a 6.

    Not necessarily, it depends if the tubes have more than one vent running from them!

    There is only one way to find the answer and that is as @Allanm said in the very first answer.

    Cheers all...I think I am getting confused with either the number of vents on the actual heater unit as opposed to the actual number in the van!
