I agree, first comes the freeze plug heater, then the LR hose heater, if it can be shoehorned in, in the right position (Read the manual!), then the coffeepot heater, on the bypass hose. On my skidloader, I put a freeze plug heater in, and while I had the antifreeze drained, I put in the LR hose heater, as a back-up, in case the Freeze plug heater wears out. I leave mine plugged in 24/7 because I need the loader for loading hay, in the winter.

How often do you have to replace it? They'll die an early death if they're left on all the time. You should consider getting a timer. Set it to turn on for 1 hour, then off for a 1/2 hour. Timers should only cost about $10-15.

I believe the Kat heater I installed said in the instructions it is ok to run the frost plug heaters all the time, in the winter. I never have had one burn out, before I put this one in, I had a LR hose heater burn out after 2-3 years. It's an expense that I can live with.
