No expanding when I change brightness, very stable. But items would
grow colorful trails to the right if I broost too much gain or screen
on each gun, it has set of 2 pots for each R, G, B guns. But this is
not the problem apprently.

I'll try that. I already have traced the wiring for that heater, it
leads directly from fly to the heater. I think there is a disc cap
and a resistor. Have to open it up and look again. It's very
service-friendly monitor, RF shield snaps off to expose the CRT
board, main board swings out on pair of plastic hinges. Well built
monitor, heavily shielded. Only difference on this monitor both
screen and focus is on seperate circuit board not on fly itself.

Doesn't the heater demands lot of current flow?

Doesn't this monitor can be affected by too low voltages for B+
