Does anybody know what current the heated screens draw?  Do I need a relay?  I intend to switch it with a standard Mini toggle switch (single pole/single throw).

I don't know what they draw but it will definitely need a relay and I would recommend one that cuts out after 10mins or the voltage drops below about 12v. Otherwise you'll melt the switch or flatten the battery.

Thanks Mike that is a great point.  That has got me thinking that I should also incorporate a warning light. The timer relays that I have found, so far, can only switch 10 amps so I really should find out the potential current draw also.
