Trickle: Good Idea or Dumb Idea to Prevent Engine Freeze?

Recommended Posts

If doing the light bulb trick Don't use a LED or CFL bulb - they throw very little heat.  You need old fashioned incandescent bulbs.

Also get you a ThermoPro Indoor Outdoor Thermometer   (less than fifteen bucks on amazon) put the remote in the compartment and see how low you go!!

200 watt bulbs can brown glass bilge in days.  I did when bulb rolled on to the floor. Grey paint repair.

Oh well.
