Yesterday I installed the new KATs 2000 watt heater. Well, last night on my way home from a birthday party it worked for about 5 minutes!

Here's what we think happened: there may have still been an air pocket in the lines, OR it was too powerful and just cooked itself. I had heat for about 5 minutes, enough to defrost the windshield, then nothing.

My plan now is to get a 1000 watt version and install that, and add a bleeder valve to my system so I can properly add coolant to it. At least I'm on break now and the weather is going to be nice this week. I am going to give the local auto parts store a call this afternoon to see if they have any in stock it not I'll next day ship it from Amazon.
