CALIFORNIA HEAT USER GUIDE
Battery Harness Hookup
The battery harness has an inline fuse on the positive (red) lead.
The fuses that are included are:
Violet for 3 amp Peach for 5 amp Brown for 7.5 amp
Red for 10 amp Blue for 15 amp Yellow for 20 amp
The amp draw below is rated at 12 volts. The output on your motorcycle will be between 13.8 and 14.2 volts.
To calculate your true amp draw, divide the amp draw on all items you are going to hook up by 12, then multiply by your motorcycle volt output.
Gloves 2.4 + Jacket 6.4 = 8.8. Divide that by 12 = .7333.
Multiply that by 14 = 10.99.
You should use the next higher rated fuse, which is the blue 15 amp.
Gloves pull 2.4 amps Socks pull 2.2 amps
Jacket pulls 6.4 amps Pants pull 4.6 amps
Connect the red lead to the positive terminal on your battery and the black lead to the negative. Zip tie the coax under your seat on the left side if you do not intend to install a panel mount port.
Dual Digital Temperature Controller
The red lead to the temperature controller hooks up to the battery harness under the seat. The white lead on the temperature controller is for the jacket and plugs into the white coded plug at the bottom inside pocket of the jacket liner. The black lead hooks up to the black plug next to the white plug in your jacket, and is usually marked with the word "gloves".
After starting the bike (ATV, snowmobile, etc.), plug in the controller. It should turn on automatically. There are nine settings for each line into the controller, numbered 1-9 on the digital control. If you would like the same settings for your next ride, do not turn off controller, just unplug it and the memory will kick in.
If you have the wireless remote, you can control the settings of your digital controller with the 2 knobs on the remote. If the remote does not communicate with the controller, you can re-calibrate it. Turn of the remote knobs. Hold down both buttons on the controller, then turn the remote back on.
The heated clothing can get very hot and can cause burns that you may not notice while riding. It is not advisable to leave the settings on the controller at 100% except to initially warm up the gear. Once warm, turn down the heat settings and find your comfort level.
Dual Dial Temperature Controller
The red lead to the temperature controller hooks up to the battery harness under the seat. The white lead on the temperature controller is for the jacket and plugs into the white coded plug at the bottom inside pocket of the jacket liner. The black lead hooks up to the black plug next to the white plug in the jacket, and is usually marked with the word "gloves".
After starting the bike, plug in the controller. Adjust the heat level by turning the knob clockwise to increase heat. Turn the knob counterclockwise to lower the heat. The knob clicks when turned to the “off” position. A dual controller has two knobs to control two separate garments on the same user. The gray knob controls the jacket, the black one controls the rest.
WARNING: Do not use any controllers to operate two separate users. The unit is intended to control two or more garments but on the same user.
The controller has Green or Yellow (dual unit only) LED for normal operation.
Start‐Up Check Status
Flashing or Steady Green/Yellow LED = All OK – Unit is operating normally
No LED = No Power (Check power supply or check for reverse polarity)
Flashing Green/Red LED = Low Voltage less than 10.5V
Flashing Red = Output Short / Overload Reset Fault
Turn Switch to Off. Turn Switch back to On
If condition returns, correct condition and repeat.
The jacket liner has heating elements in the back, chest, the arms and the neck. There are three plugs installed in a zipper pocket located at the inside, front, lower left of the jacket. One plug is coded white which controls the elements in the jacket. Plug in the white lead from the temperature controller there. The black lead controls the elements in the gloves, if they are connected into the zippered sleeve pocket plugs. Plug in the black lead from the temperature controller here. The black lead is a separate circuit from the jacket liner. Having the black lead connected to a controller causes the third plug, which is yellow, to now become an active wire. This wire is used to plug in the pant liners or socks. If using this connection, the heat setting of the gloves will now be the same for the pant liner and/or socks. This plug will not work if the black lead is not plugged into the controller.
The gloves are heated from the wrist to the fingertips, on the top and bottom. There is a zipper pocket inside the gloves to store the plugs when not in use. The gloves plug into the jacket liner sleeves. If you are going to wear the gloves without the jacket liner, they need to be plugged into a y-harness that plugs into the controller or use a Junior Controller. The junior controller has a built in y-harness. The y-harness should be run down the sleeves of your arms. The longer lead to the right side. The junior controller has three setting, red is 100% power, amber is 66% power and green is 33% power. Again, you should not leave the controller on 100% power except at initial start up to avoid burns.
The pant liner is heated on the top of the legs. There is a zipper pocket on the top left side of the pants which contains a plug. This plug connects to the yellow accessory plug inside the jacket liner. If you do not use the jacket liner, plug the pants directly into a temperature controller. There are also plugs in zipper pockets near the end of the pant legs to plug in heated socks. The pant liners have a full zipper down each leg for easy in and out access without removing footwear.
The heated socks plug into the plugs in the bottom of the pant liners. If you do not use a pant liner, the socks would plug into a Y harness that runs down the inside of your pant legs. The Y harness would then plug into the dual controller.
