Like all have said - nothing to worry. However, keeping the CO alarm in the cutlery drawer will not help at all. Stick it up on the rear drop down shelf or near the front cupboard (above fridge) and it will become useful.Maybe a little off topic but are these heaters genuinely safe to leave on overnight? I have a new T6 Cali Ocean (bought last November) with the standard diesel heater. I’ve never risked running it overnight because I’m concerned about fumes and carbon monoxide sneaking into the cab via the heater’s blowers. Is the air heated completely separately from the ‘furnace’ via a heat exchanger or something similar? What I mean is, am I worrying unnecessarily? I have a carbon monoxide alarm in the cutlery draw just in case!
So, u mean that the "termostat" is in the airintake by the floor? As shown in picture...
I thought (after reading somewhere else, long time ago) that the knob close to the door had something to do with temperature regulation... But i might be way out....
Last night we had the ebersprächer on 24degrees, but maximium 17 inside. It warmed ut, but after a while it didn´t come on again...

Normally there is a sticker on the door or B pillar with details of the heater fitted, if factory fitted. O RHD vehicles on the Drivers door.Not sure if VW did that for aT4s.@AndyWT - I'm new to the forum but see you seem to have much experience with these heaters. Mine is factory and hasn't been used in 10 or more years (previous owners say they never used it). I have a 1995 T4 California with a gasoline 2.5 liter engine. My wife and i were in Norway last year and the heater would have been a very welcome option had it worked. So, I'm wanting to get as much info on it as I can. Such as error coded or error lights and what they mean. I'm very sure I can repair it if i know more about how it works and what components it has and what they do.
How do I find out the exact model that is in the van? I figure that's a good starting place.
PR code on the label will only mention if it has parking heater as an option or has the winter pack, ie parking heater, heated seats, heated mirrors etc.Is the information on this label some place.
Don't use the heater if you have a driveaway awning attached close to the van, it'll fill with the exhaust fumes. I read somewhere in a post last year someone nearly gassed their dogs that were sleeping in the awning.No worries at all there.
Just make sure that your sliding door is shut and you
can keep cosy for about 2weeks in there.
