Does anyone have Wet Okole seat heaters?

    I just got it!
    I'm ordering a full Wet Okole set on Friday, and I want to get heat in the 2 front seats.

    I'm wondering if anyone has done this. How good are the heaters? And did you wire it up properly rather than just plugging in to the power outlets? I would like to order some switches and mount them properly for a stock look, does anyone know where such a switch could be found?

    I have the heaters in my Wet Okoles. They work quite well, just one setting though, so they get pretty hot after a bit. I have not gotten around to hardwiring them in yet. They draw 10amps (per WO customer service) so any switch rated that high or higher will work. I will be rewiring them as soon as it gets a bit warmer and will try to write something up about it.

    If you haven't hard wired them in, how do they get their power?

    Oh, wouldn't you like to know.
    You could always wire in a relay, then you could use any amperage switch to control the circuit. Opening up a lot more oem switch applications. Also for this setup you don't need a 2 pin or even a specific amount of pins. All you need is a non-momentary (meaning push in and stays in until pushed again) switch that opens or closes the circuit. The relay will be the only amperage draw in the circuit meaning the amperage should be well below 1 amp with proper wiring. You could also put a resistor in-line with the relay & seat covers to reduce heat, putting a variable resistor with a knob here would make the seat heater adjustable amperage and thus adjustable heat output. Hope this helps!
