Wiring Heated Grips into Dispatch 1

Hi folks: I'm trying to wire some heated grips into my dispatch 1 device. The device changes current output to make the heat variable, and it has a hot and a cold wire coming out of it. My heated grips, however, each have 3 wires coming out of them (ground/high/low) - What's the appropriate way to hook this up?

thanks!
Nate

Cold to ground. Hot to high.

you're saying combine the two hot's coming from the grip heaters (low and high)?

Don't worry about the LOW wire, leave it unconnected. You will be adjusting just the HIGH.

That's what I needed to know, thank you!

Awesome, sorry my post wasn't as clear as Railbender's, I was trying to say the same and missed your follow-up.
