I read the instructions but still can't figure out how to remove the plug&connector and have it like shown here in this photo.
The white tab seems to be a key but is it. I can hardly get my hands on it. There seems to be another tab underneath but it doesn't seem to move either.
Why do they put thing where they can't be reached? Thoughtless I'd say.

You do realize that Bigdogs was a prototype, and as this developed, all that was needed was a resistor?

I ordered my 1 Mohm pot...for some reason 50 degree vent temps do not do well when outside temp is 109+ in phoenix .

After reading the entire thread I do have one question. I see some people left this in and some didn't. For those that did, any ill effects for winter time heating?

From what I have read, most just leave it in. Having said that, in the donor truck we found that simple minor adjustments over 73 did not seem to warm up like we felt it should, so we pulled it during winter and simply put back in when winter left. As you have read, no 2 trucks seem to react the same.

I left mine in all winter and experienced no effects on heating whatsoever. Once I switched back to using ac for the summer it performed just as it did when I put it in last summer.
