Future proofing with PEX or conduit or whatever for Webasto
I asked MnNomer but I think I'd like everyone's opinion who might offer one.
Next week our PM comes back to us with all the big holes cut and plugged (ac/solar/fan).
Then the she-boss and I will insulate and run wires.
Not now but in the fall we'll do the Webasto gas burner.
So to future proof we'll need to have a pathway/mechanism for the control cable.
Our Webasto will go in front of the passenger wheel well. Ideally the control cable will
need to go up the wall, over the ceiling, and down and behind the driver's seat 2-3 feet.
So, I've never handled/seen a Webasto control cable.
Will it fit 3/4 PEX tube?
If so we will 'install a 3/4 PEX tube from one side to the other during out build and put a heavy
fishing line in it for later.
Alternatively and this will be easiet.
On that side of the van (passenger's) where the Webasto will be installed, is there any reason
why I can't have the on/off/thermostat up on the wall above the unit a couple of feet ??
That means I only need to get DC to where the unit will be and I have to do that anyway.
Thanks for any/all suggestions.
