I have my reefkeeper set to kick in the heater at 78 and the fan at 80. It all works great. The temprature in the room is about 72 degrees. When the lights are off the heater is kicking on and off, flickering on the control panel. Im worried this is not natural, and could lead to a problem with the heater as it may not be designed to have the power flickeing on and off like that.

what do you think?

It sounds like the temp is right around the 78degree mark. So its causing the heater to go on and off. Make sure your temp sensor is not near your heaters element. Or if thats bothering you change the temp on the RK for your heater to come on.
