Greetings,
I sure did. Now if I could say I did that intentially to see if you =
were awake, but I can't. Nor is it worth anyting at this point to say =
that the heating element was in parallel with the VBB and that the =
switch was in series with the heater. I too wondered if it would get too =
hot and burn out but it did not. I should also say that I do not leave =
the heater on all the time. Seems that when the inside (should I specify =
air, belt etc) (and should I also indicate that the humidity is lowered =
inside) gets warmed by the heater, it works well for quite awhile.
Dick


I sure hope Dick meant he put a switch in series with the heater?
