Thanks..I already have a plug for my battery tender on the battery..I didn't know that the plug would match the plug for electric clothes..Does the Gerbing clothes take the same plug that the battery tender does?dwarthog said:You can get adapters that allow you to plug into your cig lighter/auxillary power port.
I am sure it can be found elsewhere as well.
The older clothes from abut 4 years ago had a two-way flat plug like a battery tender. The newer clothes have coax style plugs. You can get a short adapter from Gerbings that will allow you to hook up a coax plug to a two-way flat or you can simply just put a coax style plug on your tender and then use the harness that comes with the clothing. I vote for the latter.lawman 101 said:Thanks..I already have a plug for my battery tender on the battery..I didn't know that the plug would match the plug for electric clothes..Does the Gerbing clothes take the same plug that the battery tender does?
The Widder heated clothing website has quite a few adapters for various power plugs.dwarthog said:My aerostich heated vest does. It uses what I believe is the standard SAE connector. The same one a battery tender connects too.
I would imagine that Gerbring use industry standard connections as well.

Klang said:I bought the Aux plug from Harley that plugs into the aux harness under the seat that is controlled by the Aux switch on the dash. I wired up the Gerbing plug to it, and I can control the heat with the Aux switch.
It you're going to use a thermostat, then wire directly to the battery.
I find that the switch suits my needs just fine.
If you don't have an Aux. switch, Gerbing makes a nice rocker switch that lights up and plugs in-line with the other stuff. You can velcro it to a spot under the seat that you can easily reach while you are riding (that's what I did on the Dyna). The switch lights up with it's on. This works fine too.
