I know, right?  The changes to the site are coming along, but not without its glitches, of course.  Always a learning curve...

Not as compact with the text, but maybe a bit more "fun" and "chatty"?

It will work just have to get used to the layout
 

Oz

2020 Nov 14 22:55:53
Well, I'm odd.  So... yeah, kinda fits just right.

Just transitioned to the new portal system.  I have a lot to recreate yet, but it won't take long. How do you like the new chat room?

Adding a fireplace?
« on: August 03, 2020, 08:55 AM »
I want to run a small fireplace inside the RV. That kind that has heating coils and cycles air through. I want to rip out the heater it has now. Any ideas that would be good? We have pets and two kids that might bump a propane unit.

I am pulling out the old unit. I have cleaned them out and lubed them in the past but had to do it again later. I want to strip it down to about nothing next year to make it functional to drive sea to sea our way with what works for us.

It has heating wires like a toaster. Air just passes by. I dont want use propane to heat. No leaks with it. Only lines I want to use is for indoor and outdoor gas tops and oven inside.
Planning on tankless water heater also so that would be plumbed also.

I guess I would have to see if that is tied into the furnace or not. Seems to work fine without the furnace.

Propane service works. Furnace works as is. Sadly it might be sold before spending much more time fiddling with it.

We are looking to buy a house next spring near my home town. Once we do I will take that $30k for the house; $20k for down payment and $10k for repair budget and leverage it to buy a 32 to 34 foot diesel pusher or probably a 4x4 dually and 34 foot 5th wheel/gooseneck. Rig so we can park it to head into towns. Its just easier to drop the trailer and throw the truck up on a hoist. Though it sucks more to pull that long of a load in the wind.
