Most service friendly new product: Heater Treater The Heater Treater replaces the plastic blend door in the HVAC system with steel. Replacing the existing door in breakage prone systems with another plastic door is at best a stop-gap solution. The failure is a result of excessive forces generated by the DC servo motor in the operation of the door. Heater Treater was shown for Dodge Ram, Chevy Tahoe and Ford F-150.
