The wide range of power settings allow the user to select the optimal heat output for them. The user can choose low gas consumption (ideal for wild camping), running on electric on site to allow you to save money on gas bottles or for cold weather (running on both gas and electric for maximum heat output). This new iVan control panel also incorporates an integrated master switch, interior light switch and awning light switch, all from one central location. iVan® also allows the user to set up to three timers per heater, per day for ultimate comfort.

Our design ethos at Whale is to strive to offer the most innovative RV heating systems possible.
