This was my first EV conversion. Randy at Canadian EV was a great resource.
The MES 4Kw glycol heater worked well over the winter.
At -25 Celcius (-13 F) I turned on the heater for about 5 minutes before venturing out of the
garage. The battery weight in the truck box helped with traction on ice and snow.
