The trip info screen somehow suggests that the heater can draw up to 6kw, but i suppose you got the figure from the official specifications ?avensys wrote:Hi,
My understanding is that an electric heater element, similar to that in a kettle, heats water which is then pumped into the normal heater that extracts the heat from the water and converts into air. When the engine is running and the water gets to about 65C then a valve opens which lets the hot water from the engine into the heater.
I believe the electric heater is 4.8KW when operating at maximum.
Hope that helps a little.
