Vehicle Heaters Questions and Answers

  • Recommended 12V Heater for Motorhome
  • For your 12V RV heater replacement, I recommend the Rampage Radiant Backseat Heater - 300 Watt - 12 Volt # RA3501. This heater has and integrated swivel mount and is 8 inches tall x 7 inches wide x 6 inches deep. I've attached a video to assist. Another even more portable option is the Performance Tool 12-Volt Heater and Defroster # PTW5009. This unit plugs into a 12V aux power port and has an integrated 15 amp fuse.

  • Will Using Rampage Heater # RA3501 Drain Battery On 1985 Ford Ranger Overnight
  • The Rampage Radiant Backseat Heater, part # RA3501, has a 300 watt output. If left on all night, it will probably drain the battery on your 1985 Ford Ranger. I would recommend a second battery as the power source for your heater. It would eliminate the need to hook the cables from the heater to the truck battery. I also recommend a charger like the CTEK MULTI US 3300, part # CTEK56158. This charger will automatically switch to trickle mode to maintain the charge on the battery, which...

  • Recommended Heater for the Interior of a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan for Camping in the Van
  • Your best option is going to be an electric heater. The other options are heaters that use heated vehicle coolant which means you would have to have your 2016 Dodge Caravan running to maintain the heat. To avoid draining the battery down as fast I recommend a heater that uses the least amount of wattage. That would be Kat's heater # KH37650 which is rated at 150 watts. If you are the only one camping out in the van then this heater would be enough. But if there are 2 or more people in...

  • How Does the Rampage Radiant Backseat Heater # RA3501 Install
  • To install the Rampage Radiant Backseat Heater # RA3501 you will simply need to route the Red wire to the positive terminal and then ground the Black wire or route it to the negative terminal on your battery. This heater does work with a 12V system and you can splice in a thermostat if needed. I have attached a review and installation video that you can use as a reference since there are no schematics available for the installation.

  • Can The Kat's Ceramic Interior Heater Be Used In A UTV And Will It Drain The Battery
  • The Kat's Heaters Ceramic Interior Heater with Fan part # KH37500 will work in a utv as long as you can find a secure, stable mounting location. It will also not drain the battery if installed correctly. The heater can be installed in one of two ways. You can hardwire the heater directly to your battery or you can use the provided 12 volt power outlet. As the heater will only receive power while the utv is on using the 12 volt outlet, it will not drain your battery unless the auxiliary...

  • Does Fan Blow When Kat's Heater part # KH37500 Is On Heat Mode
  • The fan blows when the Kat's Heater part # KH37500 is on heat mode. It's only when you take off heat and move it to "fan" does just the fan blow without the heating element making the air warm.

  • Could Thermostat Be Used with Rampage Radiant Backseat Heater # RA3501
  • As long as you have a 12 volt power source for the Rampage Radiant Backseat Heater # RA3501 you could install a thermostat switch on the power wire so that it would only come on in a certain temperature range.

  • Does the Kats In Line Lower Radiator Hose Coolant Heater Circulate the Coolant
  • Kat's lower radiator hose in line heater # KH16500 does not circulate fluid with a mechanical pump. It is just a heater that operates on the principal of thermosyphoning. It will definitely help keep the fluid warm at 600 watts power but it will take it a longer time than a unit with a mechanical pump. For a true circulating heater with a mechanical pump you could use # KH13100 for 16 to 25 quart systems. If the vehicle has a higher capacity than 25 quarts we do have heaters for the...

This is also usually placed on the oil or transmission pan but can be used on the engine block. There still is nothing that needs to...

  • Will an Engine Oil Heater Help Me Start My Generator in the Cold
  • I cannot say for certain but when the temperature that your generator is subjected to is cold, the oil inside the generator is also cold which means it is much thicker than at operating temperature. The thicker oil combined with your low oil shut-off is likely the reason as to why the generator will not fire up in the cold. I have done some additional research online and this seems to be the general consensus as well. The perfect way to combat this issue would indeed be to use the Kat's...

There are different standards for electrical and other devices, particularly the ones used around combustible fluids such as propane and engine fluids in Canada. The additional testing, research and development requires additional expense to make the CSA approved model thus the cost is recouped from a slightly higher price point. That is the only...
