Keeping the interiors temperature warm and the windows defrosted is the idea here. I have no time to wait for the defrosters to start working when responding and I must say I am a "weenie". I have been spoiled by jumping into a warm truck. I'll never go back!
I have a heavy gauge extension cord outside my garage. It is one of those with three places to plug in. I plug in both the cab and engine heaters. A timer would be a good idea for someone who has a set schedule. I really haven't been able to get the fire department to only page on a schedule (j/k). I have seen heavy duty timers, and often thought they would be a nice thing to have, but keeping it plugged in whenever it could be below freezing has been working for me.ludwis wrote:... Do you have an extension cord running into the garage hooked up to a timer? I figured I could do that and set it to turn on mabye 20min before I typically leave for work.
Thanks for the reminder. All the photos in the gallery have been resized and no longer need the "normal_" prefix. I removed it and now the above image should post properly.ludwis wrote: Also, where do you have it mounted? I remember seeing a picture some where that looked like it was under the dash.
