Underneath one of our seats it would appear some type of Heater Unit was fitted and removed by the previous owner. The van is a 2011 Rapido LHD bought from a dealer in Germany 8 years ago.
There are clearly old fixing holes, and a large 100mm vent hole to the double floor storage area with a 10mm small hole adjacent.
There are also two unused cables which are part of the loom in that area the one with the socket runs to the door top control panel with a separate unused access hole so I presume a control cable.
The other 5 core cable would appear to be a power supply although low power looking at the size of the individual wires.
There is also a banked off take off point on the vehicle diesel tank (no photo).

However I cannot find evidence of an exhaust or additional output air vent(s)

The adjacent Alde fan / heat exchanger vents into the seat footwell in the lounge area.

Any ideas what was fitted would be helpfull as I intend to fit a new diesel heater.

Your probably right the 😉 ( There is also a banked off take off point on the vehicle diesel tank ) made me wonder. 😁 Bob.
The blanked off take off is nothing to do with the Efoy. It runs on Methanol bought in its own container, not diesel. But it may suggest that there used to be a diesel fan heater.

The previous owner will have removed them both and fitted them to his new van ready for his next ski trip to the Alps 👍👍
He was a Slovak ski instructor so the dealer said. Both the TV's were tuned to Slovak TV.
Efoy unit would make sense.
Thanks for all your replies.
I will further investigate the diesel tank unused take off point, which will come in handy if I fit a heater.

Yep, there's one for sale in the classifieds if you want to refit one. Excellent in combination with a diesel heater for winter use.
