If Installing an Aftermarket Heater DYI Are You Able To Connect To The MTC


Recommended Posts

I have a 2014 24MXZ, I am considering installing a 3 port heater myself.  Would everyone suggest buying the HeaterCraft complete kit or something else?  Best place to order?  Am I able to hook it up to the MTC?  How would I go about doing that?  Any help is greatly appreciated?

yes. I would suggest referencing pages 51 & 60 of the owner's manual-  http://www.malibuboats.com/assets/docs/owner_manuals/2014MalibuOwnersManual.pdf


You can turn on heater output in the Malibu Touch Command (page 60) & then check the circuit for the heater (page 51) for power.  I can't recall if there will be a plug up behind the subwoofer kick panel, but you will likely find a plug up there ready to go.

The wakeboard boats have both control black boxes under dash, so u will be able to do that.

the responses only have a single black box ... the mtc won't allow for it (its in the other black box)

i had to get picky with MAlibu when they delivered my 13 txi with a rocker switch not mtc for heater.

they ended up having dealer install second mtc black box and re wiring the heater. So I know it can be made to work.

i believe the mtc black boexes are marked for what the do, so u should be able to find the correct connection quickly.
