I would check sail switch first. Then limit switch. For test only you can bypass them (IE: pull the quick connects off and run jumper between them). Again ONLY FOR TESTING!

They are not 12 volt but I would look into Boat engine compartment heaters. They are designed to work in confined spaces safely. To be honest, I don't recall ever seeing a 12 volt heater of any kind?
