Anyone Recognize this device?
« on: November 22, 2013, 07:43:37 PM »
Its located in the dash just above the door air dump valve.

It looks like a clock but only has one hand and the face is marked with three 24 hour periods  there is a red area over a couple of hours in 1 of the 24 hour periods.

Thoughts?  Could this be part of my mystery Webasto?   There are two wires out of the back but I haven traced them yet

Could be a aftermarket timer but doesn't look like any 7 day timers I seen for Webasto or ProHeat

That's the transfabulator modifier.

Yup, see where the Transfabulator modifier is required for the 11 wires, perfectly clear  :o

It's the timing device hooked to the right and left franistan that activates the automatic canutter valve to lubricate the right and left muffler bearing. Good luck, TomC

DO NOT hook up those wire's to the wrong terminal or your bus will travel back in time!

I havent' got that far yet.  However I do know the timer LED blinks green when its armed and the timer runs.


I haven't let it try to start the Webasto yet because I haven't had to time to properly supervise it's lighting. 

I'd rather not have the bus creating any kind of fire when I'm not around.
