INTERCONNECTED HEATING SYSTEM

12V PLUG IN HEATED CLOTHING - KEY CONSIDERATIONS

All of the 12-volt plug-in products in the Gerbing Heated Gear line may be used alone, or in any combination, as long as they do not exceed the maximum amperage allowed by the customer’s motorcycle. Additionally, be sure to keep the following in mind:

  • Use only the Battery Harness sold by Gerbing® Heated Gear.
  • Using the Battery Tender® harness that may already be installed on a motorcycle is not recommended for powering Gerbing gear.

Note: If using the Battery Tender® harness you will need to use a female adapter, and will need to confirm that the Battery Tender has the correctly rated fuse selected for your gear combination.

Note: By using this method, you bypass Battery Tenders built-in safety provision. If you are only using one harness, we recommend that you install a Gerbing Battery Harness and use the male adapter to charge your battery.

  • We recommend that you keep both harnesses. Install a Gerbing Battery Harness to provide power to the Gerbing gear and use the Battery Tender® harness to charge your battery.
  • Gerbing® Heated Gear must be used with a way to control the heat. We offer a Dual Bluetooth Controller, Dual Wireless Controller with optional remote, Single Controller, Dual Permanent Controller, and Single Permanent Controller. (See website for details on our Temperature Controllers.)
  • If Gerbing® Heated Gear will be worn by both rider and passenger, install two Battery Harnesses to the battery terminals and use two controllers to control each person's gear.
  • NEVER switch on Gerbing® heated gear if the motorcycle engine is turned off or running below the indicated engine speed. Damage to the gear and electrical system may occur.
  • Heated gear must be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications and instructions.
  • Use the Gerbing® 12-volt plug-in heated gear on a 12-Volt DC circuit only.
