Default Re: Volksrod heaters??

The 300w 12v space heater I just got for my bus draws close to 30A - so if you also have a huge stereo and the lights going, you may well be drawing more power than your genny/alt will produce. I run mine off a deep cycle battery that charges while the bus is driving.

Volkswagens do produce adequate heat, if and only if every part of the heating system is maintained. One loose joint and you'll get less heat than a mouse fart, but if you ensure that every seal is good (including the orange ones that Timbo mentioned) then you'll have enough heat to stay warm most of the year... but it's not going to make the car comfortable during an upstate New York winter.
