Default Warm & Safe Remote Control Heat-Troller

Anyone using the Warm & Safe remote control heat-troller?

What am I missing here?
I wear a battery pack with two AA batteries and two knobs, if I am controlling let's say jacket and gloves separately, and there is no wiring tethering me to the bike?
I currently have enough wiring and cables for a successful moon launch.
Can I actually rid my jacket of wires and unleash my tank bag.

Anyone using this? Hows it working?

Real interested in this.


Paul

I got a new one from revzilla---it never worked--at all. From what I read now there are many out there that don't work. Revzilla gave me a full refund with which I bought a Gerbing wired dual controller.

I use a dual heat roller with my Gerbing but, I don't hook the pants to the jacket. I control them separately.

Never tried a Warm-n-safe. They weren't around back when I got my heated gear years ago.

If I understand this correctly there is a procedure required for the controller to recognize the transmitter each time everything is powered up.
It seems brief but critical which does make some sense.

I'm trying to get out from under he two cables, two plug in system I have now.

If you have a Heat-Troller you have a Warm & Safe product. Early Gerbing controllers were made by Warn & Safe. The Chinese made Gerbing controllers are where the two companies parted ways.

Mine would pair up every time I turned it on, it just would not give the power needed to heat my gear (defective) I read where Warm and Safe remote controllers were having numerous problems so I am done---sticking with the dreaded wires.

I have had Heat-Trollers for many years, but had never heard of the remote control version until this thread. Warm-n-Safe has been in business since the late-1990s, at least. I met Mike Coan at a place in Italy called Pinerolo in 1997, I think, and I remember him talking then about importing some kind of Japanese heated golfing gloves for use on motorcycles. I thought he was nuts! But at the time I didn't yet appreciate the magic of heated clothing... When I did I bought Heat-Trollers, because the design made so much more sense than what other manufacturers were then selling.

Ciao,

Ciao,

I've been using the dual remote for 3 years and haven't had any problems yet.

I have the controller mounted on my left handle bar on top of the clutch reservoir. I trashed the Velcro that came with it and used the strips provided by EZ Pass. (the pic is a little fuzzy, taken at night in my garage)

Rick:
Is that the wireless remote or is that the semi-mounted controller?
Where is your receiver?

I have the semi-mounted controller mounted in the same place with the main box under the seat. I'm looking to move to the wireless setup to get un-teathered to the bike.

Paul, that's the wireless remote. The receiver is in an inner pocket in my jacket and is waterproof. There is only one wire to contend with and that is for power to my heated gear. I have the single wire coming coming off the bike battery run to come out of the left side under the seat.

The only way to be truly untethered from your bike is to use battery operated gear.
