    Default Planar Heater

    I had brian install a 44d in our raider and the thing is absolutely amazing. went out duck hunting this past weekend in rainy weather and with in minutes you felt warm and dry inside the cabin (also used the heat box to warm up the pizza we had). One question i had is the difference between thermostat mode and ventilation mode. I assume thermostat mode will heat the cabin up to the temp you set and then it will shut off until it drops below tha temperature. I kept it in ventilation mode for the entire trip and i assume that gets the cabin up to temp and then ramps down and continues to run to keep air circulating in the cabin. is that correct? Looks like we went through just under half a gallon of fuel for 12 hours of ventilation mode.

    Great to hear! Sure appreciate you and taking the time to post this.
    Ventilation mode shuts off the fuel pump once cabin is up to temp.
    Thermostat mode continues to idle on low heat once the cabin is up to temp.
    Power mode she runs regardless of the ambient temp in temp in cab.

    thanks Brian! You nailed that hot box. It makes it much easier stepping up into the front of the boat with out having to open the bottom gate.
