    I bought a farm innovators metal base heater to keep my water thawed at night, and when I opened it up, it says to not use an extension cord. I HAVE to use an extension cord.

    Can someone reccomend a water heater that I can plug into an extension cord? :(

    Use a heavy duty thick gauge cord than is rated to carry the wattage that the heater uses.They usually put that on there because people tend to use a small household cord that cant handle the wattage.
