Waveski Sounds like you are fixed up on heater fan cotrols,you'll need em in sheboygen ! I cobble together resistors and use a 6v motor your 12 volt system is best by far.

Actually , I need to button up the minor projects in progress and store my truck for the winter. Didn’t start driving it till mid September , so I’ve been holding out.

Waveski Use the simple rheostat,that standard is liable to be an offshore unit though,I still use a 6 volt motor with NAPA resistors I guess because itis still alive. Have 2 speeds in the original switch but always use hi it's not objectionably noisy though. The NAPA system works but is kind of expensive and is more riggin' under the dash.

Yes, the Standard unit is made in China. It's virtually identical to the original switch I removed. I even weighed both of them and they're identical. (I often weigh "identical" parts and find that the new Chinese ones are lighter due to shaved dimensions, etc).

The noise on high is no louder than the fans on any of my other vehicles except the Cadillac. And in the AD truck it will be covered up by wind noise and valve clatter!

My single speed fan is quite loud.
I will give the control I received, probably Monday/ Tuesday after returning from holiday travel.

Valve clatter I don’t have- 283.
Lots of road noise though, no sound treatment yet. No headliner either.

Update/ non-update: My 3100 went into winter storage earlier this week , one step ahead of the street salt applicators. Switch installation not yet done.
Thread probably is.
