Hi, I fitted the Webasto Thermo Top C about 2 years ago. I cut 2 x tees in to have the engine in play when required and was going to fit 2 x lever action ball valves. The Heater has been so succesfull I have never bothered connecting the engine as I don’t do a lot of long trips and I am only making 22 litres which I can do with the Webasto in 15 mins anyway. Just out of interest did you install a buffer tank to work off some of the heating load? I have just started to make a drop in hot water kit as pictured. Cheers from Australia.
