    Okay I've seen a lot of folks talk about how great the thermocubes are. The on at 35 off at 45 seem to be the choice. Problem is they work on air temps right? If so, we haven't come close to 45 for three weeks, so would thing shut off?

    The obvious answer is no. That is the problem with thermo cubes. If you use them they will turn on and off based on the air temp in your coup. So unless you have a heated coup they most likely won't work for you. I would not suggest heating your coup and if you don't then the most common problem we all fight is keeping water from freezing. There are several way around that and which is best really depends on your specific setup.
