Re: Thermostat bypass for heater install needed

Sure hope you fellas get those heaters installed! Went elk hunting yesterday morning before daybreak, had six other hunters mounted on quads to make the trek over snow drifted gullies, and ruts, they were real jealous of our cab.

When one of them asked if the cab made the noise louder, I told him, only when I have the heater fan on high.

Hate to think I paid way too much for the polaris heater, except when it's 17 degrees out and the wind is blowing about 30.

Re: Thermostat bypass for heater install needed

Good point after a couple hours with my polaris heater on high my radiator is warm but by no means hot
I usually wait until the engine reaches temp before opening the heater control valve

Re: Thermostat bypass for heater install needed

Hi Guys, Has anyone considered one of these. $50. 5,000 btu Google "golf cart heater" If you need a defrost, a 12v computer fan or 2, blowing on the windshield should take care of that.

Jim, in Mission, TX. where is is 85 degrees today. Gunnison & Taylor Park July/August 2012.

Re: Thermostat bypass for heater install needed

Somebody on here mounted an infrared heater under their dash along with a 5# or 10# bottle mounted sideways as a heater.

Good idea, but maybe a bit more of a fire risk than a conventional heating system, and LPG containers kind of give old firefighters like me the heeby-jeebies. (Google B.L.E.V.E.)

Re: Thermostat bypass for heater install needed

Try this fellas. Stop by your local Polaris dealer. Have them contact the company that builds the Polaris heater. Order part # WPS-TH-700 . This fits the RZR 800. They are about $85.00 each. It has spacer, elbow, bolts, and O ring.

Re: Thermostat bypass for heater install needed

So i took your advise and went to the local polaris dealer with the part # previously given. While talking to the guy at the counter finding the correct manufacture for this part. Not shure if everyone is aware that the new 2012 Pure Polaris Catalog shows a total of three different heaters for the mid,full,rzr. And from the looks of them they heater craft, flex-o-lite, and the mohave just going off the looks of them. After looking at these I determinded that none of these are the correct manufacture. But did try one more and bingo found it. The parts guy called them located the part got a price. The guy at the company wanted to talk to me about what i was installing for a heater. So i called him back after thanking the parts guy leaveing the dealer. They did have the bypass the correct # for polaris 800 is WPS-TH-800. i ordered it and it will be hear tommorow come to find out the company is about 90 miles north of where i live. Very resonable price compared to the others out there.. Sorry for the long post.

Re: Thermostat bypass for heater install needed

wkayl; Thanks for the point in the right direction. Note I did not list the actual manufacture of this peice not shure if it's a supporting vendor or what not. The part # is correct though for the bypass. It includes the spacer, steel elbow, bolts, and o-ring as I was told by the company person. If you need more info PM me. As i did not want to get the actual heater till i could source the bypass first everything else is widely availible online.Thanks Again !!

Re: Thermostat bypass for heater install needed

I've been commercially plowing snow all winter with the Summit heater with the identical by-pass. Also installed Summit temp guage to monitor the feared "to cool" running. It does not "over cool". Works perfect.

Good to know, what temperature range does it run in?

Re: Thermostat bypass for heater install needed

Never below 195F which is were my thermo open/close. Plowing with little-to- no air over radiator, fan kicks on @206F. Running road/trail speed w/air flow over radiator, thermo maintains the 195 so fan never kicks.

You can't ask for anything better than that, thanks for the good information.

Re: Thermostat bypass for heater install needed

I have a question on the summit heater. How durable are these heaters. My concern is the plastic or nylon housing. Has anyone had the housing break from being mounted in the rzr. Im shure they werent dessingned for this type of application but I do know alot of people on this forum run them. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

So far, so good. As far as how good it works, turn you car heater on, roll down the windows and drive down the road 30MPH.
