You don't see too many seat heaters on all-terrain vehicles or motorcycles. But, in frigid climates where the mercury drops below freezing in the winter, a durable seat heater makes riding more comfortable and a lot safer.
A Sunmark customer who vacations in the rugged Montana outback needed a seat heater installed on his ATV. And this is not your run-of-the-mill ATV -- instead of wheels, this one features tracks for all-season use. This ATV means business! The seat heater needed to be flexible, reliable and capable of performing in extreme conditions.
After selecting the correct heating pad, we carefully trimmed the seat foam so the pad was flush with the foam. This insured that the rider could feel the heat but not the heating mechanism. For convenience purposes, we integrated the switch into the dash.
Perhaps the trickiest part of this unique installation was the wiring. You can't have loose wiring on an ATV zooming through the trees. To prevent wires from chafing or breaking, we tightly secured the wiring conduit to the ATV's frame. Then we built a simple quick-release device so the seat could easily be removed when necessary. The customer loved it!
