Sorry, couldn't resist it. I'm not even any help either, I've got no idea what it is, haven't seen the like before.

no the heater in the back is just a hot air electric motor the diesel heater under the front wing is for preheating the glo plugs in winter when the temp is below zero

No it's not, it's for helping the engine get up to temp quicker in the winter. It's better for your engine and your passengers get warmer quicker :)
