Chinese Diesel Heater Wiring Problems?

Hey everyone!

We purchased a knock off 12V diesel heater because we heard they work just as well if not better than the espar… However, the instructions aren’t helpful. I don’t think it translated well because none of the sentences make any sense.

As far as I can tell, everything is hooked up correctly and connected well. But the wiring isn’t working. I get my power through to the first plug and then it seems to disconnect. No power seems to be going through the plug to the pump or the LED screen. I’ve tested the power inside the plug on the connectors, but when plugged in nothing happens.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Greetings!

I would scour the net, including youtube, to find some decent directions for installing your heater. Even other brands may be the same heater…

Cheers!

I’ve heard that the Chinese heater instructions are useless, but also heard that there are good tutorials via YouTube etc.

I kept it very simple by investing in a heater that doesn’t require electricity, but it requires more work to operate.

I am a believer in non electric solutions for everything possible. While I have a number of 12v luxury/convenience items that I enjoy, my only electrical requirements are my phone & laptop, and both of them can be charged only while driving if necessary.

Cheers!
