    Anything is possible, but this is not likely. The heater will only lower the temp 5-10 degrees, but of course that can make a difference, in an emergency, i.e. hopelessly stuck in traffic. Much better to install a 16" pusher fan in front of the radio, for such emergency situations.

    I have had several Stude heater valves stop shutting completely off; sometimes they leak too, and sometimes not. I usually just send them to the guy in HMN (Joe Hudacheck?), who rebuilds them as new, for about $75. The 56J's valve currently will not shut completely off, but I just re-routed the water lines for now. More and more things get put in the round2it file nowadays. Can't wait till retirement retire, so I can give personal stuff the time it deserves
    I retired 3 years ago and still trying to catch up on my roundtoit file!

      I actually had a real bonafide roundtuit where I used to work, as the work I did absolutely required everything be completed daily; nothing could be put off. It hung on a hook right next to my desk.
      When I left there I forgot to bring it with me and am now accomplishing very little in retirement.
