Factory Heater

I was asked about the factory AC heater and its output. Does it provide adequate heat, and will it do the job? A member on another site has a new 500 Prowler that he wants to put one in. All feedback will be appreciated!

the only thing I dont like about the factory unit is that it takes up all the storage space under the hood. I really like the idea of the smaller Summit Racing heater that goes in behind the dash.

i got to drive a 2013 hdx with a factory heater when mine was in the shop. i wasnt impressed with it but then again, it had a half windshield and a fabric top. nothing else. i wasnt sure why they put it in but it did kick some heat out. it only had 2 fan speeds though where the summit has 3. it may have also been the way it was hooked up. the guy wired the fan direct so it was on even when the key was off. i killed the battery finding that one out.

It does take up a lot of space. but it works great with a full windshield and cab. I just installed one in a buddy's Prowler, too. I did it alittle different. I ran the two hoses to the floor vents in our console and tee'd off the two windshield defrost vents. I wanted more foot area heat. I also put a valve in my coolant hose to the heater and a cut off switch in front of the heaters coolant pump. It blows ambient temp air into the cab in the summer time. Its nice to have the air flow. Really works good in Spring and Fall riding, because it gets so damn hot in these things, anyway. I'll post a few pictures, later. Off to work, right now!
