i was at a service station the other day and a guy saw my enclosed rhino and and he mentioned that he run a pipe off the exhaust tubing not the exhaust pipe and run it into the cab and and it kept the cab very warm in the winter what kind of pipe do you think he may have used to keep it from melting on the pipe sounds like a good idea? any thoughts on this

Dumb idea, the engine will put off enough heat to keep it warm. Then if all else fails it has a warmer installed in it already

So you can use just a standard car heater core and build your own cab heater? Never have seen this, sounds like a cheaper method.

my rhino came this way....i think i found it when i googled (boat heater) cuz thats what the guy said i got it from...and like 400 bucks he said....my fan was dead cuz the area under driver seat was a foot deep in old mud and killed the heater fan.....Its a alloy tin box about 6x6x8 long...has a turbo 4000 fan in it and a car heater core....one end for air intake for fan has a chrome cover over the round hole...the other end of box has two....3" round ports for round ducting like a rv heater...its mouted under drivers seat....one duct is like 6" long and goes straight out to 3" hole in plastic and have rv stye vent blows at driver feet....the other is ducted over drive shaft and over to pass feet and same hole in plastic with a 3" round rv duct that blows on pass feet...the heater core tubes come out the side facing motor...and are taped into line that passes from motor on the way to radiator...i have a coolent temp gauge and a switch on dash for heat...works great.....the heater core is like what 30 bucks?...the fan i replaced was 30...and make a alloy box and mine is riveted together...should be easy
