Protect your engine against freeze damage and continue boating into the cooler months with this safe, ignition-protected engine compartment heater.

Ideal for heating bilge/engine compartments, Pali BilgeSafe Heaters utilize energy-efficient, self-regulating PTC heating elements that cannot overheat and meet all requirements for ignition protection. In addition to protecting engines against freeze damage, these heaters reduce corrosion by keeping engine compartments drier. Batteries also benefit by a reduction of cold temperatures, which can shorten battery life. Red LED indicates when the heater is running and heating the engine compartment. An internal, hermetically sealed thermostat turns the heater on at 41°F (5°C) and off at 65°F (18°C). A quick-release mounting plate is included for easy heater installation and removal.

      Comments about Caframo Pali BilgeSafe Heater, 400W with Thermostat:

      My boat went in early this year and this was so easy to install. It gave me the piece of mind needed to not worry about freezing as temperatures dropped below 25°

          Comments about Caframo Pali BilgeSafe Heater, 400W with Thermostat:

          3 weeks into use and it has performed as expected. The product seams well built.

          My only reason for not giving it full stars is because there is no way to test it, unless you have some special freeze spray or let it sit in the freezer for some time till the thermostat kicks in.

          The thermostadt is triggered at something like 40 degrees and is not adjustsble.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery took longer than expected using the free ship method.

          Dissappointed a huge retailer like West Marine would not match the price of other retailers selling this item.

            Comments about Caframo Pali BilgeSafe Heater, 400W with Thermostat:

            As an electronic engineer, I appreciate the innovations that are used in this compact cute heater. The impinged heat transfer technology implemented in this product is often used in managing heat of high power CPUs. And adding a second fan nearly makes it failure proof. In addition, I love the quick release mounting bracket that comes with it.
