The Dual Top Evo 6 integrated heater combines the benefits of an interior cabin heater with a water boiler. With a number of different features you can access hot water when in summer mode, and just heat or heat & hot water in winter mode.

Let’s dive into the controls. Use the power button on the left to turn the unit on. The button on the bottom left will access the menu.

 

Winter Mode: Cabin Heat Only The first mode in the menu is “Heating Cabin”. Select the heating cabin setting and confirm your energy source. Once switched on you will see a green LED light in the top left corner. Use the buttons on the right to select your desired cabin temperature. The cabin temperature can range from 41 to 95 degrees F. The temperature will be maintained at your selected setting using the temperature sensor that’s installed inside your van.

 

Summer Mode: Hot Water Only The next mode in the menu is “Hot Water”. First, turn on your water pump. Next, make sure you have water in your boiler by turn your faucet to hot and runs until water comes from the pipe. On your control panel you will select a temperature between 104 or 158 degrees F. Once activated you will see a green LED light in the top left corner. Depending on external temperatures and the temperature selected, it may take 20-60 min for you to get your desired water temperature. Our advice, start heating your system far before needing the water to avoid waiting.

 

Winter Mode: Cabin Heat & Hot Water The next mode in the menu is “Heating Cabin plus Hot Water”. First, turn on your water pump. Next, make sure you have water in your boiler by turn your faucet to hot and runs until water comes from the pipe. On your control panel select the Heating Cabin plus Hot Water setting. Once activated you will see a green LED light in the top left corner. Use the buttons on the right to select your desired cabin temperature. When selecting this setting the heater will first heat your cabin, then after reaching cabin temperature will start heating your water boiler. Keep this in mind when parked in cold temperatures.

 

Heating By Timer: This setting allows you to operate the system using a 24hr 7 day programmable timer. You have the ability to set cabin temperatures for two different programs.

 

Frost Protection Mode: Next you have the frost protection mode. This mode allows you to park your van for a short time, from a few hours to a maximum of a full day, without worry of frost or frost damage. This is a safety feature for the heater unit only and doesn’t prevent the water circuits inside and outside from freezing. Make sure that your boiler is filled before activating. Start by selecting the Frost Protection mode setting in your menu. Once selected, the unit will monitor the temperature in the boiler. Once the temperature drops below 42.8 degrees F the heating function will start and heat your van. Please note that this mode uses diesel and energy so ensure you have enough supply of each.

During Winter storage or when parking your van for a long period of time make sure you fully winterize your water system. Details can be seen in our winterization video.

 

Draining Boiler: Before extended parking periods you should drain your boiler. The boiler can be drained simply and directly through the control panel. The electric safety valve will automatically close after 90 min. At any time you can stop the draining process. Always drain the boiler when there’s risk of freezing temperatures or if storing the vehicle for a long period of time.
