Default Cadet Under Counter Electric Heaters

Ordered two of the replacements today - one for the bathroom and one for under the front drawer console. I didn't order thermostats it appearing the new UC 101 models are an in and out replacement of the old TK 101 models. I reckon, the wiring and BB OEM thermostats are the same. (Hope so anyway)

Thanks for this timely and informative information passed along to everyone.

Tommy,

If your coach is wired like mine, the thermostats are not connected to the heaters. The thermostat is a spring tension operated unit that energizes a coil on a relay in a 110V circuit that runs from the main breaker panel to the heater. The relays are in the closet next to the frig
behind the two access panels on the back wall in my coach. So long as you replace the heater with the same wattage(1000W) everything should work ok.

Thanks, Chuck:

Isn't that interesting. To the techno-challenged like myself, I'm amazed at what I can learn. Let's see if I've got it figured right. As the temp rises, the spring tension in the thermostat expands causing the relay to open and the heater turns off?

Conversely, as the temp drops, the spring tension contracts, causing the relay to close and the heater starts back up again?

My, my what will they think of next?

Yeah Tom, on mine there was just the three power wires connected to the heater.

(Black, white and green - 12 guage wires)

Just matched the colors and attached with wire nuts. I did have to drill new mount holes into the cabinet face to mount the heater. It took about 30 minutes?

Just make sure there is no A/C power on the coach. I unplugged the 50 amp cord and turned off the inverter before working on the wiring. (Not sure the inverter powered the heater but I wanted to be sure it was safe)

Yep.. But don't ask me how & why I found the relays as my ignorance would show...........

Default Heater

Dan,

Is that Cadet the heater in the bathroom in the BMC's. I have a 1995 and don't use my bath heater much but if that's it I guess I should replace it.

Lee,
Yep, that's the one. As a min, pull out the old one, remove the lid, and vac it out. I opted for the new one - we use ours all the time unless in a hot climate. Nice toasty feet getting out of the shower.

Lee, I have one Cadet Heater and one Aqua Hot Heater in my BMC bathroom. The Cadet heater is the one under the bathroom sink. The Aqua Hot heater is under the bathroom closet.

Sorry Lee, could not get back to you. If your Cadet is labled "Model TK 101" get rid of it. I'm still using mine right now awaiting arrival of the new ones, but I sure did clean them good.

Replacement: CADET Perfectoe 120V/1000W Under Counter Heater (UC101B) the "B" at the end of the UC101 indicates a black one, "W" is white.

I have been "spooked" by reports of fires.

I have replaced two of my heaters with these heaters. They are smaller and had to put 2"X18" wood buildups in the openings to get the heaters up high enough. Quiet, do the job fine.
The bathroom is a different heater that we replaced. Very quiet also.
Recommend the Cadet Perfectoe heaters.
