The layout of the system is as
1. The Eberspächer diesel heating heats up the
2. This water circles through the heat exchange of the
Elgena Boiler (has in addition a 230 Volt heating build in) with 30-litre
3. Furthermore this circuit is connected with the motor
4. The motor circuit can be disconnected from the first
circuit with an electronic switch off.
5. The off-switch is necessary to
a) loss of heat through the motor circuit
b) Prevent unnecessary heat for the motor
whilst driving in hot areas.
6. On the other hand I wanted to use the circuit to the
a) To use the heat of the motor to save
diesel whilst I am driving.
b) To heat up the driver cabin and motor
before I start in the morning.
As you can see not an easy job but he promised to find
Last but not least some bits for the GPS positioning
system have been delivered. A box to get the cables to the GPS receiver has been mounted
on the roof.
the planned period to finish everything was too short and even on the next day
there was no hope for finalisation I drove home on
Tuesday evening, which enabled me to be back at
work earlier. This proved to be a
because I was able to get the new brochure ready for printing, arrange some
meetings for the move of the company - so finally the chaos created from Agtar
for me private gave me some advantages for the company - but have to drive again
sooner or later another 350 km!
The weekend before we have polished and painted the
wardrobe and the two benches. This weekend I have reinstalled them. The colour of the wood
(Buche / Beech) looks much warmer / red now. Tomorrow is another public holiday in
Germany and I am using it to get the other furniture painted. So I doubt that it makes sense
to send pictures at the moment.
Anyhow I have added some pictures of the two days at
Agtar, which gives an impression of the work..
This picture shows the second power
transformer. Now I
have 2.500 + 3.000= 5.500 Watt permanently, peaks up to 11.000 Watt. The advantage was, that
which normally is above this place had been taken off for painting, which made
the installation much easier.
This picture shows two additional
doors. The bigger one
is to remove the tank of the toilet, the smaller one gives access to a small box with a shower for
outdoor use (has nothing to do with the Agtar visit).
This picture shows two cuts in the wall to allow air
circulation for the fridge. The additional door allows easier access for
maintenance work or to increase the air
garage of Agtar is not high enough to allow access with my camper. The
cabin is tilted to get some cables along the chassis to from the cabin
to the drivers cabin (additional lights at the rear, to be switched on from
both cabins // warning light to show if the electric doorstep is in or out). I
started with these things rather than wasting my time by just waiting for the
missing parts to arrive.
The ladder was used to mount the cables box for the GPS
Here the guys from Agtar are struggling with the water
pipe for the water heating system.
Because of frequent request how and where the heating was connectetd to the
motor cooling system here two photos showing where the hoses where integrated
into the heating system of the drivers cabin with a T-connector:
here the second T-connector:
For the installation of the water heating system and to
get the cables of the rear camera to the front of the cabin access to the service area was
Because of the removal of the furniture everything was
standing around and blocking everything. What a
