Small Heater "Installs Anywhere"
"It's small enough to mount under the dash of any vehicle or sometimes even under the seat, yet it puts out a surprising amount of heat. And it's priced right," says David Heutmaker, Flex-a-lite Consolidated, Fife, Wash., about the company's Mojave heater.
  The Mojave heater measures 12 in. long, 9 in. deep, and 5 in. high and gets its heat from the fluid in your vehicle's cooling system. The unit's 3-speed blower draws 8 amps and moves 130 cfm through adjustable louvers. A 3-way switch and the wiring necessary to complete the installation is included.
  "The Mojave's compact size and ease of installation make it a great replacement unit," says Heutmaker. "It works equally well as a replacement heater or as an auxiliary unit. You can mount the heater horizontally or vertically, or at any angle so it can fit into a lot of different locations. The double squirrel cage blower motor is quiet but blows a lot of air.
  "It has been used in everything from jeeps to tractors to small airplanes and boats. It puts out 12,000 btu's which is about 3/4 of what's produced by a standard auto heater, so for its size it's a pretty potent little heater."
  The heater can be fitted with an optional defroster plenum that snaps onto the front. A side opening in the defroster plenum provides a connection point for a defroster tube, which can be connected to the vehicle's existing defroster ducts.  
  The heater retails for $160 plus S&H. The plenum retails for less than $40 plus S&H.
