tank heaters

I am wondering if when you turn on the tank heaters if they stay on until you would turn off the switch or if they would cycle on and off as needed? Since it's just an on and off switch i'm thinking it just stays on constantly until you would turn it off.

Q) When should the UltraHeat™ Tank Heaters be turned "ON"?
When should it be turned "OFF"?
A) The 13.5 VDC power switch for the 13.5 VDC UltraHeat™ Tank Heaters should be turned "ON" or the power cord for the 120 VAC UltraHeat™ Tank Heaters should be plugged in when the outside temperature approaches freezing 32°F (0°C.) The 13.5 VDC power switch should be turned "OFF" and the power cords unplugged when the outside temperature stays above freezing. All UltraHeat™ Tank Heaters are thermostatically controlled, they turn "ON" automatically when the holding tank temperature is 44° F (7° C) and turns "OFF" automatically when the liquid in the holding tank reaches 64°F (18°C.) The UltraHeat™ Tank Heater should be turned "OFF" or unplugged when dumping the holding tank.
