The right most heater control knob controls where the air flows (e.g. floor, vent or windshield). The knob has 5 marked positions. It also has intermediate positions between the marked positions. What do the intermediate positions do?:confused:

Don't know, but I have noticed no difference in operation between the marked and the intermediate positions.

There are official stops for "Floor", "Floor & Vent" and "Vent." The intermediate clicks split the difference. For example, between "Floor" and "Floor and Vent" you get "mostly floor, but just a little vent." Go between "Floor and Vent" and "Vent" and you get "just a little floor, but mostly vent."

Believe it or not, this is very important. I use it all the time!

In the SKY when driving top down in cooler weather, you might want the heat on to give you a little warmth in the cockpit. Too much floor and you bake your shins and toast your tootsies. If you go to all vent you get the warm breeze over you, but then a cold pocket can surround your feet as the warm breeze exits the back of the cockpit. Since you can only set one temperature for the air overall, you use the intermediate stops to direct the air where you want it to go so that you have the right amount on your feet and legs balanced with the air flowing over your upper body.
