installed warm'n safe.....not sure if this is right

so I got my stuff installed, pretty easy. i have the 65watt jacket + gloves.

go the controller synched up.


so, a few questions:

-how long should the jacket take to warm up? after 10 minutes im getting some heat
-should it be warm everywhere? its feeling kinda spotty at best right now. mostly warm in hte front, not much on the back

Oofda, Dude, my Gerbing be hot right now. You have a electrical problem. The heat should flow almost instantly.
I found that a dual controller made the jacket and gloves work independently. A single controller put the heat in the gloves and not the jacket. Something is incompatible.

You should feel heat in a matter of seconds. What are you using for a controller? How is it wired?

I take it the gloves are working okay. If so, swap the glove and jacket connections to the controller and see if there is a difference.

My Gerbing will blink at less than full on. Have you turned the knobs all the way both ways?
At full on the gerb will get warm enough to cook me.
