Tour Master Jacket does not turn off

Postby comanche » Sat Jan 01, 2011 5:06 pm



This, although not exactly a Goldwing issue, occured today while on my wing. Started out with my Tourmaster heated jacket on and working. When I stopped to meet our group and started again the jacket was not working. Fuse was blown. I put a new 15 Watt fuse into the fuse holder and now the jacket will not turn off.

I have to unplug it to stop the heat. I contacted Tourmaster, but today being New Years Day, they have not responded.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

The controller has probably died. I have read that the early controllers, ~2-3 years ago, had a high failure rate. I have purchased two jackets with the controllers and so far they are ok. They are about a year old.

Thanks, I contacted the store where I bought it and in two days I had a new controller. It works fine now.
