Interesting, never seen one with the fuel pickup mounted as such.

Things Ihave learned with mine was make sure the air intake is very protected, as I have filled mine with snow. Other thing was as my tires kicked up mud right at my pump, a fitting came loose. Both will be getting improved before the winter for sure.

But welcome to the life of pre heating the van for when it is cold between the fire and your bed! I probably use mine more than i should, if for any other reason that it is good to have hte heater get up to temp once a month.

Thanks bemerrit! How will you protect the air intake? I have had a problem already with mud blocking air intake, so I am looking for a better situation.

Going to try and route it towards the middle of the vehicle, somewhere protected. If I cant find a good spot, cover it with foil/rubber band when driving and remove before use.

THose are the two simple Ideas, I am sure there is a better way to do it, and I am most certainly all ears on that.

The fuel pump should be mounted in a 15-35 degree angle. See page 57

I put a lawnmower air filter on the combustion intake hose. Something like the filter at the link below. I don't recall the size of the black hose so verify that first. I picked up the one that I used at our local ACE store and it fit perfectly.

It is a combustion chamber so deserves clean air, imo. I also installed an air filter on the return air inside the van.

There are mufflers available for that exhaust outlet. It will reduce the operating noise substantially. I was looking for a link I could give you to which one I bought on ebay but no luck. Highly recommended.
