Tank Heaters
I have a Roo 17 and am considering putting on tank heaters sometime in the next year or so. I'm wondering what size (watts) that the factory uses and are they 12 or 120 volt. Got the blank on the control panel and was wondering if it was wired directly or via a relay. Anyone have a wiring diagram? Sorry for all the questions, but just trying to figure out if it was a practical project.

On my Wildcat, the little heater pads are 12v. Can't answer your other Qs.

We have seen 26-30 degrees overnight many times and I have never even turned ours on.

Mine are 12V the main switch provides power to the system and each pad has a snap disc stat to control the power to the pad.
