    What happens when you run both heated seats and the wipers? Will that overload it? I imagine that wipers and heated seats would be used at the same time in most cases.

    I asked reallifeonhold that same question, he said he tested that scenario and didn't have any problem. I haven't tried it personally yet, although it's supposed to rain tomorrow might give it a try.

    I'm reading the instructions and it suggests that "the heating unit should be protected by a fuse with a maximum rating of 15 amps." The only 15 amp circuits are the ECU-IG, which I am inclined to leave alone, and ACC (accessory?). The 20A circuits are the wipers and 4WD. The 12V constant wire has a 15A inline fuse, so I think that would break before blowing the 20A wiper fuse if there was a short in the heater pads.

    I'd be curious to know how many amps the wiper motor is pulling.

    Gotcha. Shouldn't be too hard to test with a multimeter. I'll be doing some work on my truck this coming weekend and can test it.

    I need to do this. How hard was it to install? I plan to do this on the car port at home only thing is that port sits high vs garage ceiling being low.
