Getting ready to install my 3 outlet heatercraft unit. For those of you with the same boat, is the unit always mounted upfront on the drivers side? Anyone ever install one on this boat or know where to get diagrams of the factory install?

after looking at this some more, I am thinking about mounting the heater unit behind the drivers side in between the stock ballast tank and the storage unit that has the sub in it. There is a hump there that looks like I cam bolt it to. That way the hoses are much closer to the engine and then I only need to run one flex hose up to the euro vent that will mount by the driver's side feet and electrical wires???

cant believe no one has any input. well here is more info

I have 2 options on where to mount the heater pics included. I like option 1 better but let's see if anyone else agrees.

advantages to mounting here are
closer to engine so water doesn't travel as far
closer to 2 outlets so air doesn't travel as far

disadvantages are
I have to add more electrical wire to run them up to the dash switch
lose that storage and have to be careful it doesn't get wet

advantages
no lose of storage and hidden
wires close

disadvantages
have to run 2 tubes and 2 water hoses in some tight areas and far
things could get very hot in there

Ok sooner or later someone has to have an opinion lol.

Anyone have a picture of an inline tube "t" installed? The one that pushes warm water even during idle.
