Re: Manifold heater question(s)

Re: Manifold heater question(s)

There has never been a control valve installed and it seems as if all the control valve does in any of the applications I have seen is to block flow into the cabin. There is no "diversion" duct on...

Re: Headlights and tail lights

With standard bulbs what does the amperage draw look like with headlights (both HI and LOW) with parking lights added?



On the rear does this basically give you "modern day" running lights and...

Re: Headlights and tail lights

No headlights and parking lights on at the same time without modification to wiring and you may overload your generator if you did have both on at the same time.

Re: No electricity. No crank. No horn

George,
After looking at the picture the safety fuse(circuit breaker) is labeled 12V; I'm not sure what is required for a 12V conversion but you may want to start there.

Re: blown fuse problem

A 20 Amp fuse is under the 30 AMP rating so it is "safer" but you may exceed the rating and burn the fuse. IF you do not burn the fuse with all your lights on during maximum amperage draw then a 20...
