1965 Mercury Econoline _8525 Atwood heater
I am restoring an old 1965 Ford Econoline. It came with an old propane furnace that no longer works. A friend gave me a Atwood 8525 III heater. I am confident I can vent it through the existing vent stack out the side of the van postioning the unit in the right location inside a cabinet. I would have to move the on/off switch to be acceesible.*
What I am wondering is will the standard 12 v car/van battery be enough to power the unit, and for how long before I had to fire up the van to recharge the battery. I do have the ability to put 2 car/van batteries in series if that helps. Also what type of fuse would I need between the power source and the unit?
Looking forward to feedback.
