Kats Heaters Reviews and Installation Videos


Expert Answers about Kats Heaters

  • 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 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...

  • Comparing Kat's Heaters Handi-Heat Magnetic Engine Oil Heaters KH1153 and KH1155
  • Like you said, Kat's Heaters Handi-Heat Magnetic Engine Oil Heater # KH1155 is CSA approved for use in Canada. The other one, # KH1153, is not. 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...

  • Troubleshooting Block Heater that Is Difficult to Install in 2015 Toyota Tacoma
  • As long as you have found the correct hole in your 2015 Toyota Tacoma the Kat's heater part # KH11813 would be correct for it and should slide right in. Since the hole is somewhat difficult to access you are most likely not angling it in correctly. Make sure you are trying to install it in the correct hole (see pic) and that it is lined up perfectly square as you insert it. We have heard that the catalytic converter bracket on the 2015 model can be somewhat in the way too.
