Question Supplemental Cab Heater

Does anyone have this option on your truck? I am fixing to order at 250 or 350 and had planned on ordering this option. How well does it work? Are there any negatives to this option? Does it work in conjunction with the remote start?

I have the supplemental cab heat on my 2008. You will DEFINITELY want to get it. It works very well and you will have heat within a minute. Here in North Carolina in the mountains with very cold days at high elevation, I get a lot of use out of it. No negatives that I have found with it.

I can't address the remote start question directly since I do not yet have a 2011. From what I understand it will work with the remote start.

I just received my truck a week ago. I live in Ottawa Canada. It was -9C yesterday and it put out heat very quickly. It was better than I expected. My old 7.3 would have taken quite a while to heat up at that temperature.

You need to get either the heavy duty alternator or the duals. I went with the heavy duty. The heater is electric and pulls quite a bit of current.

If you live in the cold climate it will be absolutely worth it. I live in northern british columbia, and i would be lost without it. The heavy duty alternator that is required is always a bonus as well

Dont know why you would order a SD without the supplemental heater. The one in my 6.4 works great. So why is it an option???

Tell me about it. I live in Calgary and my dealer didn't even tell me that it was an option until after I had the truck. Pisses me off royally. Now to get one put in is going to cost me like $3000. F that.
