Barry -

Just tried mine. With the Quest cold, turning the amp knob all the 
way resulted in 10.5 Amps registering on the Quest meter (11.5 amps 
on the Kill-A-Watt I use for sanity checking, with Quest fan at max, 
meaning about 11 Amps being used by the heaters), dropping to about 
10.25 Amps indicated on the Quest meter after 30 seconds or so. My 
voltage on this outlet, with the Quest running at max Amps, is 122 VAC.
