This new 8 litre water storage heater has been cleverly designed to maximise living space by being located outside under the vehicle if space allows or internally but by using a balanced flue to increase location options. This under floor water heater builds on Whales reputation for heating excellence gained by their award winning space heaters
Being a balanced flue Gas and Electric Water Heater now means the days of cutting large holes for Flues in the side of a vehicle is a thing of the past, with the concentric flue pipes being led to the side of the vehicle and discreetly hidden under the sill. For internal mounted version the exhaust can go down through the floor and then to the side of the vehicle as up two metres of exhaust run is available to play with.
Fitted externally, Expanse only requires a minimal amount of internal space (214mm x 60mm x 81mm). Fitted internally, the heater gives converters the freedom to install hot water without resorting to cutting holes through motorhome bodywork.
