Joe to everyone, noticed how many
people wanted to extend the use of their Recreational Vehicle
to year round and cold weather enjoyment. Snow skiing, snowmobiling,
hunting and may other activates were becoming just another reason families and
persons would like to use their units. Cold weather caused holding tanks and
exposed pipes to freeze-up, leaving the utilities useless.
Joe passed away on June 3,
2005, but he developed a great program that today remains the
RV Industry's leading design to prevent tank and pipe freeze-ups.
His "Full Contact" RV Holding Tank Heater Panels quickly gained UL approval
and has met the standards for other stringent independent third party safety
testing and listings needed for different International Markets. In 1991, Joe incorporated
Ultra-Heat, Inc. and located it right in the middle of the nation's largest RV
manufacturing base, Elkhart Indiana.
Joe's vision and design talents led
to one of the most popular and asked for "add-on" products ever
developed for the RV market. A heating system so simple, that RV
owners could do their own installations to retro-fit any RV. These new products opened the door to further winter use
advancements within the RV Industry, as archived in the "RV Hall of Fame". Manufactures moved from three season, winter storage or "run for the sun"
designs, to full time destination parking four season use.
The UltraHeat® brand of efficient full
contact electric heaters apply the heat right where it's needed most, directly
on the Holding Tanks, Drain Pipes and Gate Valves. This is
done without special tools or the need to cover and restrict
access to an RV underbelly.
the promotion of the UltraHeat® brand to an early and lasting lead, being
the first in this new RV Winter Freeze Protection market. Because
of Joe's emphasis on quality materials and high testing standards both in
finish product and performance, these products quickly gained attention of the Consumer
and RV Dealerships as well as most all North American RV Manufacturers.
As the company continues to grow, we at Ultra Heat, Inc. stride to maintain Joe’s friendly
"one-on-one" way of doing business.
