How does that work?

Could I use it as a pre-heater before going into propane heater??

I used it on my HX to keep the water hot, plus it made my system hold more water and therfore would hold a higher temp.

Thats what I did Davey...the more water I had flowing and the larger volume would keep the heat up even with the air cooled Kohler. Just had to be careful not to burn your pump up. I always kept a male plug in my pocket and would stick it in if I was going to move furniture so my pump wouldn't over heat. A pain in the arse. Diesel heat is the way to go in my opioion. It is availiable 24 hrs a day unlike propane and very economical to use.

I might be interested Larry, I just wonder how difficult it would be to incorporate that in to my hillbilly mount?

I assuem I just need to rout the exhaust to it and hook up my water line? Can you do a video explain how it is supposed to be hooked up, and what do you want for it?

Thanks

you could use the propane as a pre heat to the HX

Ive always wondered why they dont make the HX more like a copper coil

Like if you took copper line and wrapped it around your exhaust in a tight coil and ran your water thru it.

prob wouldnt give you super high temps but if you already had a little heat from a small LG it would make a big difference, you could prob get the water to 170 before it hits the LG

The only problem with pre-heating before the LG is that if you are too hot, the LG will not function. They told me that I needed to keep the inlet temp down to around 140, so any heat exchanger without a control method is going to be counter-productive. (I know there is a work-around to that, but not in factory configuration).

I like the idea of using the LG to pre-heat the Hx unit...that seems to make sense to me, but maybe that is too much effort for the gains.

Could be wrong but looking at photo it looks like it runs off the engine coolant.

It is a coolant heat exchanger. Hard to explain how it was hooked up but on the bypass side but it also gave me a larger volume of hot water to work with. Just run a small line off of your HX back to the water box with a needle valve to preheat your water. For propane I have no idea or even if you could use preheated water with it.

I use a hx to pre heat before propane. Saves me A LOT of propane because our tap water here comes out at 40 degrees. So just pushing it up to 130 ish makes for a ton of savings.
