Heater Question

Hi there. It's been a while since my first post about batteries and error codes. Because my 700 HDX is equipped with a plow I upgraded to two gel batteries. Now I am wanting cheap heat. Enough to keep window clear and keep my hands from freezing. Anyone have any experience with a 12volt ceramic heater? I found one that looks pretty good.
Schumacher 1224 150/235 watt. Plugs into aux or can direct wire.
Thanks in advance
Sorry I can't post link. I'm still a newbee.

...for sure, if you have to run 5 grand to build that kind of power you better have the long johns on!
Still a nice lookin' heater. Maybe just on low speed use.

Thanks to all of you! I read the destructions and the unit draws 20 amps. It has an inline 30 amp fuse and looks like a really nice heater. I called the dealer to advise me because they set me up with a two battery system because of my plow. Not sure that will take care of it. I'll post as I learn more.

Hi there! Same here. I love this forum. So, my second battery is on the drivers side in the "storage" compartment.
