Are you sure? I believe you still plug your gloves into the liner sleeves and plug th black lead into the thermostat black lead of a dual thermostat.FifthGear said:I forgot to mention that if a duel thermostat is used you would have to plug the gloves into the thermostat and not the liner sleeves...leaves a little to be desired.
I've had the same experience. The HD heated gloves(Gerbing) make my hands feel, neutral, I guess, is how I would descride them. Not hot or cold.tlewis said:When I first got my gloves, I wasn't sure they were even working. However, I believe this is by design. If they got much warmer, your hands would constantly sweat and that wouldn't be good. To validate that they were working, one 40 degree night, I swapped out the heated gloves for a set of conventional gauntlet gloves and my hands got chilled quickly.
That's my experience anyway FWIW.
Maybe, the jacket draws more power than the gloves so if you could control the jacket power use with a thermostat it may allow more power to pass to the gloves, in other words, the un-controlled jacket may be sucking off most of the power and there may not be enough to the gloves.dominick44 said:I have a gerbings heated liner and a pair of hd [gerbing] heated gloves,i dont have a thermostat so my liner is very warm and my gloves are barley warm at all,would a thermostat make my gloves warmer???
you may not have them hooked correctly, that was my problem, if you only have one connection from the battery to the pdu (liner), then the power isn't going to the gloves, you would need a splitter or a dual controller, I have the power going to an on/off switch, to a splitter into the pdu, the gloves do get warm!I have just installed a pair these Gerbings gloves and over concerns that they didn't feel 'warm' I came in to check the forums.
Is it correct to understand that these gloves are not supposed to feel warm? I mean I didn't ride anywhere, just sat with the bike idling waiting for these things to warm up. Didn't notice any warmth after sitting for 5 minutes.
Maybe the difference is apparent when you're traveling down the highway at 55 mph when it's 20F? I don't want to find out these things don't work properly in such a scenario...
I don't have a liner; just gloves. I'm using the included Y-splitter, power switch, and battery connecting harness. Double checked all connections and the fuse. It's all installed correctly, just no perceivable warmth in the gloves.you may not have them hooked correctly, that was my problem, if you only have one connection from the battery to the pdu (liner), then the power isn't going to the gloves, you would need a splitter or a dual controller, I have the power going to an on/off switch, to a splitter into the pdu, the gloves do get warm!
