PostSubject: Aircon/LPG - has anyone actually got this?   Sat Jan 25, 2014 5:27 pm

It was a few years back at a Danbury Day that a few of us got to drive the Test Kombi that was fitted with PAS as well as a bespoke aircon system and a LPG conversion. I'm just wondering, has anyone here got either of the latter or is that Test Kombi going to stay unique in history?

They were 'expensive' options.

I came close to having LPG fitted but found that because Sunny had been lowered, Danbury's tanks (stowed underneath) wouldn't fit. There were a few other options around, namely having a toroidal tank fitted but in the end I decided to bank the £2k cost, as I couldn't be bothered to wait the 2 years for pay back. Another factor was the loss of the wardrobe for the tank. I was also contemplating "upgrading" to a T5 camper and so the person who would benefit from the fitting of the LPG tank would be the next owner, not me. All in all, a no go.

Air con would be nice.... for a couple of days a year. Way too pricey and didn't want to lose the headroom at the back.

The things we doo with Scooby means we doo not really need the PAS option
With regard to LPG we would not consider it and as for air con . . .
Invest in heating instead for the UK  Wink

Air con? Is that the occasionally warm stuff blasting out somewhere around the foot-well?

Surely you jest ! the air con is normally serviced by the cool air coming in from the hole around the accelerator peddle !

You can switch that off with the "old sock around the pedal" method, as seen in Absinthe (I think).

Not us, Sunny, we never got round to doing that. The problem was largely solved when we had carpet fitted.

Irishman was the pioneer of 'sock on pedal. '

Don't worry Jason, it's sock round the pedal stem, not on actual pedal. High tech fitting ( rubber bands) top and bottom allow sock to move with pedal, but restrict draft up trouser leg  Very Happy
