You can contact Webasto in Fenton Michigan with any technical questions. There Regional Midwest Sales manager is Ken Eisenhaur. When I worked with W.W.Williams I had a lot of dealings with them. Good people. Tell Ken I sent you. Also he can direct you for parts etc if need be. Good Luck

What is the correct process to check and top off the boiler fluid? I have removed the SS covers checked some loose hose clamps and just want to insure that the fluid level is correct and if not how to fill.

Thanks (still learning)

The fluid -antifreeze/water- is the same as the engine coolant. If the engine coolant is full (site glass visible when engine bay is open) so is the webasto system. The engine heat switch on the dash is just another way to start the webasto system.

Because the engine coolant is the same as the webasto system, one is heating the engine coolant so heat is lost to the engine bay. If it is very cold outside, one has a big heat loss thru the engine bay!

Something else I recently found is the diesel fuel filter location for the webasto unit. It is located inside the wheel well on the curbside at the front of the drive wheel well behind a small metal shield. It is hard to see but one it is there.

I had a lot of hose clamp leaks which took a while to find them all, but now our system is leak free.

Thanks now I learned something new. I was under the impression that the boiler fluid was separate from the engine coolant. Now I know..

Thanks again another question answered.

This sounds like a Webasto scholastic, and tied into the bus heat/coolant would seem to confirm that. If this is the case, we have plenty of info on the scholastic.

Did anyone with a Webasto do the engine bypass modification that Eric Johnson was talking about in #4 & #8 of this thread. I would like to do this one and would like to get my hands on the plans he spoke of.

Thanks

Buck
