Does anyone have this? I am thinking about installing it onto my RT instead of having to use the dual controller on my jacket.
Have it on my GS. But placement of control is critical. Put controls where they can be varied while under way. Otherwise it is a pain to stop and change controls.

I would never buy a heat troller from Gerbings again.. I had to return 3 of them. This past year I mounted the Warm n' Safe heat-troller on my GS.
Works with my Gerbings jacket. Heat-trollers just oscillate the 12 volts power. Much better quality...
My side accesory outlet is powered by the heat-troller. I disconnect my side accessory outlet from the canbus and hook it up to the output of the heat troller. I then connect a BMW male plug onto the jacket's power cord.
http://www.gerbing.com/acc/accprod.html#plug external power plugs to put onto the knee pad. But to be honest, the power wires are zipped tied and close to the knee pad, so it isn't an issue plugging them into the jacket/glove wires. Be careful to keep them in the off position unless you are riding; you might drain your battery otherwise.
Retired and riding my RTs, the '87 K100 & the '98 R1100 !
I've seen 50 or more Gerbings controllers get sold and have heard of one go bad. None would be better, but it's not a problem area in my experience.
My other bike is a BMW.
