Espar heaters

I am considering installing an espar heater in kimberlite.
If you have had an espar heater on your boat would you please tell me what maintenance issues you have had and what spares are necessary. do you remember the model number of your heater.
i am heading to where spares are impossible and i want to make sure i am covered in this area.
fair winds,

I have a D4 something airtronic. Biggest problem experienced has been very poor design of fuse system leading to several occasions where fuse stops making contact and machine wont start - must get around to replacing it!

Havent had any problems other than that in the last 2 years. Dont carry any spares.
Great system
