View Full Version : heater install -- where?

I'm planning to install a HeaterCraft heater in my X5 this spring. Where does the factory typically install the heater cores in this series of hull (190, 195, 197, etc.)? I'm considering placing it under the observer's seat, in front of (ie. towards the bow) of the battery. I currently have a sub enclosure under the helm so there's really no room there. There's already a 3" vent hose running starboard to port under the walk-through hump which would facilitate heat to the driver's side.

I have a 197 and my heater is right where you are looking to put yours. Past the battery to the left some under the observers seat.
