[DML] Re: second otterstat this year

The functions sound correct. You should not drive with the otterstat 
disabled. You will look away from the temp guage at the wrong time. 
There should be no strain on the electrical system to operate the 
otterstat - it just operates one or two relays depending on who's fix 
you have.

I had two otterstats go bad like that a long time ago and the third 
one is still in and operating fine - that was probably 10 or 12 years 
ago. I wouldn't be too concerned just yet - especially if you have not 
blown a fuse (no.5). If the third one goes then maybe. Be carefull 
when you install the new otterstat to not damage or strain the 
connectors. If the connectors are damaged, strained or moved in the 
housing the otterstat could become unstable and/or malfunction.
