    Bunk Heater

    i have a very used '11 prostar. and i cannot figure out how to make the bunk heater work. not sure if it's busted or im doing something wrong. the control for it in the bunk says Espar. with colder weather coming it seems a good idea to get this thing figured out.

    If I remember right, all they have is an off and on switch and a theromstat, but it has been a while. What does the espar console have on it in the way of controls?

    Guessing you're a Company Driver (since it says Student) You can't ask someone there at your company?

    Nothing wrong with that...

    Previous Company I worked for used Webasto in all of their trucks so not familiar with the Espars.
    The Webastos they got just had a simple dial.

    Can't be that hard though, so If you can't get it to work I would guess there is a good chance it's not working.

    seems to be working now. took a while for it to do anything, so i guess its just slow to react. i have heat at least now.

    Yes it does take a minute for it to get up to temperature, and likewise when you shut it off it will take a minute, I did find that console in the upper right on the website, but didn't find instructions, they did have some films that I didn't watch though.

    It should take up to 5 mins sense the diesel flame blower to heat up the pipe to bring in the heat. The top right switch is to turn on the heater and the up and down arrows is the temp stat and the fan turns on and off. Hope this helps.
