Well, it would be great if we lived close enough to enjoy this together. I will say though that since we weren't able to start when the weather was bad it is very convienant for me to run downstairs and work on a couple of hours when it is rainy or early Saturday/Sunday mornings before Tam and J crawl out of bed. For instance, the RW heater was completed 3 sessions of 1-2 hours. Ton the his weekend we are hosting a family pcinic that I need to do alot of preperations for but you can count me squezing a couple hours here and there on the HD. It's really a hobby to me.
And yes Randy, with the nose removed was a great oppurtunity to install the heater. The vent locations RW prescribes in their literature are not the optimum for functionality. With the nose off it made it easy to run the hoses closer to the outside where they belong. Actually, if someone with an HD drills where they have illustrated in their picture they will drill directly beneath the power steering motor/gearbox. If they are lucky enough not to drill into the gearbox they will still need to cover a 2 & 1/8" hole they will not be able to use. I intend to send RW a note telling they may want to consider changing their directions for those installing heaters on HD's.
The 2 &1/8" hole is consistant to the all the installations where you penetrate a surface to mount the vent hose barb and diffuser. Unfortunately, there is not enough width in the kick panels nor is there a clear path for the hose to drop down into them like yours and my old XP had. These new units are actually much MUCH easier to do alomot anything on. Notice theinstrument cluster laying in my lap making wiring modifications 10x easier. And the battery is near twice the size of old units.
