That is a very nice looking set up. I couldn't find an area open enough to justify owning one but would be so cool to have something like that. Do you leave it parked in your brothers safe, or take risks and take it home with you?

Don, do you have an infrared heat gun? I checked the air coming out of the ductwork at about 93* and the line coming from the heat pump to the air handler is around 110-115*

Fake grass for the dog, we tried that but our dog didn't like the smell or feel of the fake stuff. Lots of walks and trips to the dog park. Good thing is we are only in AZ for 4 months.

Ken, you see the 30's what two weeks a year at most? Where do you run the cooling in the Summer, 90*


My wife has the furnace at 70 all winter when we are down there. Up here it is 71 or 72 depending on how wet it is outside.

Here in Wa we were state run liquor stores too. Now most grocery stores have product for sale. The Dems voted it in, they can't face reality while sober.

Well Nate, my wife really thinks it is a good idea. So other than a extra night each direction( 55 mph towing in California) and now the inspections and power washing, all is good.

Well since Lake Mohave, Lake Mead, and Havasu all have infestations of Quagga mussels our boating is going to be a pain when we head back home next spring from AZ. Will need to have an inspection and hot water power wash of the boat and trailer by Arizona Fish and Wildlife. The inspection includes the boat, trailer, all the fishing gear, life jackets, boots, fish boxes, live wells, wash down pumps and hoses, thru hull fittings, ropes, and anything else that was in or near the water. I should miss the California inspection stations with a bit of luck, but when I get to the Oregon boarder another inspection at the very least, and they could even take the boat away for a week in quarantine and  another power washing before I can pass through their State. I don't want to infest any lakes with the darn mussels, but reading up on the fresh water quagga mussels, they don't do well at all in a salt water environment, or left out of the water for a few weeks.

You will be shocked when you open it up and see how much isn't there. When that was built, weight was a big issue, they really skimped when building them. Special use? Closet space isn't much to start with so I wouldn't want to loose what there is. Lots more room to work with if you had a larger camper to start with.
  I used an 8ft camper as a hunting camp years ago. Also had a couple tents set up for cooking and sleeping. Four guys with a weeks worth of stuff just wouldn't fit inside that little camper.

Are you just looking for a change or are there problems now. Brave man for taking on a camper rebuild. When they put those smaller campers together, All the companies use about the same floor plan because there just is not enough room to do much else.

I wouldn't think the fire would be burning at such a high rate, but you are heating a lot of area, and it is cold outside. 180* water seems high. What temps did the sales guy say you should be shooting for?

That's impressive, especially for a home that size.

Only took a 1/2 a cord of wood a day to do it too!  :shocked:



I would hope Don will keep good records of wood burn and share that information with us.
Once he gets some logs dried out and starts loading them into the stove, burn time should increase. Maybe then he will keep good numbers to share with the group.

Once you get good dry wood for it to eat, you might want to clean the exhaust piping. If you have much build up it can cut down on the draft's ability to keep a good burn going. On my wood stove, if the exhaust builds to much junk, it curls toward the center of the pipe cutting down on draft ability. Either that or get a darn good chimney fire going and burn it out. Don't think anything is close enough to be hurt from that.

Dave, Looks like you need waterproof leggings too and  stay out of water deeper than the boots are high. Gore-Tex is a wonderful thing up here in wet country :wink: If those boots are waterproof and leaking you need to give them back for a new pair. Low heat with that boot dryer is better on the leather than higher heat.

Don, I hope things are getting warmer for you now. I had a propane heater installed in my garage this fall. It hangs from the ceiling and it sure is nice to have better heating in there. It looks a lot like the unit you installed in your garage except for the water lines. Once you get a bunch of stockpiled wood that can dry before you use it you should be golden with that setup. I would caution you though to not be putting the fire wood right next to the house or in the garage, the bugs could eat you up.

And just as important is the Colonoscopy exams. I am here to tell you if they catch a problem early enough good deal. If not it is hard to get out alive. I think normal is every 5 years, I didn't follow that advice but fortunately a body scan picked the tumor up before it had spread to other areas.

And if you are buying seasoned wood and the truck shows up with green wood send them away. When you need wood to burn you don't need a load of green wet wood to try and work with.

Don, can you manually open the draft a bit(or lot) more. More air flow across the burn should increase the heat of the fire and provide more coals too. Burning wet wood is never good for sure, but if you can get a good fire going the wood will dry out more quickly. Maybe add some store bought coal to help out for now. If you do that let the draft work on its own so you don't overheat the unit.

Well Dave, go out and try to move that trailer even an inch by hand. Remember it is uphill into the garage. Power something will be needed, and if you load it up power for sure will be needed. Take Shawn up on the slightly used one......

Nice looking flare tool, I have bought and thrown away way too many of those tools. I hate working with brake lines anyway and then not being able to make a good flare connection.....WELL.. Saltwater or salt air makes brake lines turn bad even when you are extra careful.
