What does anyone think to one of these to turn your heating on so that you come home to a nice cozy van

I tried fitting a digital timer to our Truma heating last year. I firstly put in it the line from the room stat which wouldnt work, so then I took the selector switch apart and tried to work out some sort of schematic as to how it works, but never really got to any conclusion. The circuits seemed to be milli volts rather than the 12v I'm was hoping for. I dont know what heating system you have, but if its Truma and you can get hold of some sort of wiring diagram you might be able to sort it out.

How big is your van to need pre-heating? Ours warms up within a minute or less of lighting the heater. Obviously it can take 30 mins or so to get fully up to temp, but it is noticeably warmer almost as soon as the heater is lit or even if the kettle is put on, enough to make it OK to take your coat off anyway.

my vans not that big I suppose it's more boys toys gizmos ect Though I like the idea of being half a mile down a windy cold beach walking he dog take out my mobile & switch on he heating so it's warm to get into works the other way in the summer to turn the cold air on to come back to a cool van

If we are away with our van and the weather is cold I just leave the Ebby switched on using a low setting. I run my heater on red diesel, I can buy a lot of red diesel for the cost of one of those switches!!!!
