I put this heater on my RV water heater to prevent it from freezing. So far it works well.



by:

I used this through a winter in the north where it regularly is at subzero temperatures. Truck always started without any issues. I also had heat pads on the oil pan and transmission that I bought from etrailer. At -40+ degrees the truck always started relatively easy.



by:

Website was easy to use and shipping was quick!



by:

Article conforme a la description.



by:

Was disappointed. Their product description along with the installation instructions both refer to "self adhesive" but there is none. Called manufacture and they suggested High temp silicone RTV. Do to the location of installation this was difficult to do the clamping. Added 4 days for 2 people to the process to install.



by:

Works as advertised



by:

Works great



by:

We use it on the oil pan of our sprinter fleet. We run in subzero temps a couple times a year and this works great for us when our fleet has to sit outside overnight. Great product just make sure to research the size you need for your application.



by:

Quality. I hope it works as well as it looks! Will install soon.



by:

Great Product! Volkswagen Jetta TDI makes no electrical heaters. There is NO frost plug on the engine either! Installed the KAT and life is good! Starts every time.
Roger in North Dakota.



by:

Installation was a snap as my generator was still hot from running. Peeled off the liner to expose the adhesive and stuck it squarely and securely on the underside of the oil pan. My review is only 4 stars because I haven't yet put the product to the test, but when that happens I will revisit and revise my review. Otherwise the heater arrived quickly and was as described.



by:

I own and operate a tree service in MI, needless to say the winter months are hard on our equipment. I had searched for quit some time before I found this product, it was a very easy installation and makes a world of difference, I would highly recommend this to anyone who works in the cold weather. Thank you Kats !!!



by:

I bought this pad heater for my air compressor that lives in the unheated side of my shop. I ruined two electric motors due to the oil in the compressor turning to molasses during the winter where it gets well below zero. So far so good. :)
The adhesive is solid, not peeling and the pad keeps my compressor nice and toasty. Before when I was away traveling I would forget to open the breaker for the compressor and come home to a ruined motor. That problem is history.
I highly recomend this heater, very small but very effective for oil pans of all types needing to be kept warm in freezing condition.



by:

Works awesome! This is the second one, the first burned out after two years. We use them on 4 wheelers in the winter, on timers for 2 hrs twice a day. Put on lower crank case to warm oil...starts much easier. This one still working well after 1 year.



by:

Used it to keep oil warm on my GENERAC generator for easier starting during winter months but the electrical connections on the heater were so poor that they were arcing and sparking like July 4th fireworks!! So I ripped it off, too unsafe.



by:

So far so good. Bought 3 for our diesels. Be sure to clean the oil pan for any dust, grime or grease. We even lightly sanded the oil pan to ensure good adhesion then used high temp RTV silicone around the edges.



by:

I installed this on a DEF tank in my diesel to keep it from freezing when I’m parked overnight in sub zero temps. I ran the cord along the frame rail as far as it would reach then attached an extension cord and routed that to come out in the same area as my block heater plug. Be sure to clean the surface of whatever you’re attaching the pad to in order to get good adhesion.



by:

Installed this heater on the transmission of my Ford Escape. Works perfectly. Now the truck will shift into gear in cold weather. (I know I need a new transmission but the truck is not worth it) but this heater has bought me an extra year out of my truck. Thanks etrailer.



by:

Just received heater today.
Looks like
it should be perfect for the oil pan installation on my Kubota diesel UTV.
Hope to do a after season review next spring.



by:

Great Service, got my heater in 4 days in Alaska.
All looks good , will be glad to do business with them .



by:

I attached it to my air compressor to warm the oil before I start it when it's cold. Works well. I plug it in about 1 hour before using the compressor.



by:

Using heaters to warm up batteries on an electric drag racing car for cool weather racing. Batteries make more power when warm. The heaters work great!



by:

I haven't been able to test these out yet but they are not as flexible as I was told so I hope they work.



by:

This is the second Kats engine heater I have purchased and both are good quality and durable. This is also the second purchase I have made at eTrailer.com and I am totally satisfied with the cost, the no charge shipping, fast delivery and great follow up to make sure my order was correct and was delivered. I will definitely order from eTraler.com again should I need a component or a part.



by:

A year in and its still there working for me. Haven't had any extreme cold weather though so cant speak to how effective it is below -20C

  • Will Adhesive of Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad # KH24500 Last
    If you clean the surface where you plan to mount the Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad # KH24500 it's going to stick and not come off. We've yet to have someone come back and report that one has came off.

  • Oil Pan Heating Pad for 12 qt Oil Pan
    For that big of an oil pan you'd want our biggest heating pad part # KH24500 which is 5-1/2 inch by 8-1/2 inch. This is thermostatically controlled too so it will keep the oil warm but would not get overly hot. Considering how hot motor oil gets over-heating it with a pad like this would be extremely difficult for what its worth.

  • Recommended Oil Pan Heater for a 2006 Dodge Sprinter 2500 with 2.7L I5 Engine
    I have a few options for your 2006 Dodge Sprinter 2500 with 2.7L I5 Engine, a block heater like the Kat's Heaters Custom Engine Block Heater part # KH11483 or an engine oil pan heater like the Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad part # KH24500. I recommend the block heater as it's a custom fit, designed for your exact vehicle whereas the oil pan heater is a universal stick-on type. I agree that an oil pan heater with direct submersion would be best but this is unfortunately...

  • Recommended Heating Pad for Stainless Steel Water Tank
    I may have a solution for you, but yes- the ThermaHeat RV Holding Tank Heaters # 277-000164 are designed for more standard tanks that are made from hard plastic. However, you might be able to use something like the Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad - 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" - 120V - 500 Watts # KH24500, which is be used on 7-10 gallon water tanks. This is the largest tank heater available that would likely work, but you may be able to use more than 1 to help keep your stainless...
