Hi i have a question, the mobile home i moved into has heat cable in the gutters and part of roof i guess for ice damn but, i have a few questions since I've never used heat cable before.

1. There is a cord on each end of the house one in back and one in front do i plug in both?
2. The cords don't seem to reach the outlet do i use a extension cord?
3. Do they need to be plugged in 24/7

I don't believe they are the temperature ones I've seen people talk about.
