Little Heat from Heater during idle

I've seen this issue on an old thread but not sure where. During idle I have less heat coming from my system. Obviously this makes sense, but what are you guys doing to fix this? Heatercraft recommended this Y-Fitting...

Has anyone done this? If so where exactly does it go? Thanks in advance.

Added the fitting last year. HUGE difference. There are instructions that come with it...pretty easy stuff.

Thanks,

It uses science to make life better.

I'm sure MIskier will jump in and explain it (and, hopefully, tell us how he, Obama, Bill Gates, and Paris Hilton designed it!).

Use the "search" function on this site for "Y-Fitting"; you will find a few threads that explain the Y-fitting function and location.

Here's one... http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ghlight=y-pipe

Matt,
Just installed this on my boat. Haven't had a chance to get out yet, so don't know how it works yet. Might have been the simplest part of the whole install
