Got heater hoses from the radiator running all over my vintage MH. One goes from the rear to the the heater core in the dash.
Another goes to hot water heater and one to the bedroom 'aux heater'.
Another discussion on this site discussed 'aux heat' as an option on their MH. An expensive option.
One comment got me thinking. What happens if you break a heater hose inside your MH.
So 'free' heat of the engine is going to cost the price of a new motor. On the other hand capping off the heater hoses prevents breaking a heater.
So as I head south, I am going to be evaluating other ways to stay warm while driving.
So thanks for getting to think out of the box.
