My Gerbings deal
« on: May 06, 2014, 09:28:14 AM »
I have a Gerbings dual control permanent mount heat controller on the FJR and last year i was having trouble with one side cutting in and out. when i was tracing the wires I found a brake in a connector and at that point the wires touched and i heard a pop. Well it wasn't the fuse i heard pop it was the controller. The fuse never blew. Now only one side works.

I've been looking to replace the control box but it isn't sold alone I have to get the whole setup. I've been looking an the internet and the prices have been in the range of $115.00 to $130.00.

Last night I was looking again and went to Revzilla and they had a dual controller that they had used in one of there demo videos for $89.00. Well it should be on it's way to me today.

Is it still cold up there? It's been in the 90's for the last 3 days here. 98 yesterday.

There is still ice on Lake Erie, at the mouth of the Niagara River!
