PLay Harder, BTW I recommend for consideration the catalytic LP heater (shown in some photos) the popular sizes are 6K BTU and 8K. I put one beside the fridge directing towards the recliner; but the garage would need one as well. The are much more efficient... something in the order of 90% or better. And, costs less to operate and no furnace cycling. If you were to use the furnace constantly, two 20 lbs. cylinders aren't enough, IMHO.

If I were to insulate the floor again, I wouldn't take the days to cut and fit around everything, instead I would have insulated the top side of the coroplast belly pan but seal it with some kind of foam, as well as all gaps and seams. This can get wet, so consider what you use for insulation.

wolfwhistle . sorry i saw OH and thought couches . I did email them again today wanting solid answers . one thing i was told is the belly is sealed and heated . but now i find it's not , just sealed . the dealers no matter who are so full of it . they say what ever with out any knowledge of wtf is really in the units their selling or anything else for that matter . before the deal closed i was getting calls at least every other day . now i can't get them on the phone . just like in the other thread where they told him there was 5200 lbs axles . they really don't give a hoot if someone overloads a unit and they have blow out and do damage or die . their covered by saying it was over loaded .

What i don't understand is if you just had one bike in the back why did you have issues with axles bottoming out ? I told the dealer today that i expect to be able to carry 2 motorcycles up 1800 ++lbs and expect the unit to handle this plus the remainder of weight used up in other areas . very aggravating

Extreme weather package is not sounding very extreme -- hopefully it helps keep the heat in and less sweating w dual pane glass - I expected garage area to need a heater - anybody install bigger furnace? - add 2 heaters to my trailer equipment list -

On the other end of the spectrum dare to ask how is the AC unit I upgraded to he 15btu?

The double pane does stop the condensation 99% and greatly helps.

Because of their inefficiency I would not consider a larger furnace, even if it would fit but I don't think it will.

I've only toyed with the idea of upgrading to a 15K but thought of making it a heat pump. But, I am not convinced that 15K would be enough by itself. I have also considered staying with the 13.5K and adding an 11K non-ducted in the garage. This might be too many BTUs. I would think at this point, it would require going 50 Amp. This isn't a problem since we have access and a compartment directly behind the utility "center".

That just pees me off that you have this and I don't! I am trying to figure out why you were defiant?

Can you share the part number and where you got the WDH? Thanks, Wolf

Part # for Anderson WD hitch w 4"drop 6" frame 2-5/16 ball is part # 3350 -- they also make w 8" drop if you have a tall sitting truck part# 3380.

The ultimate trailer gear part # is 3600 - really a nice set includes 4 jack pads, 1 clean step, trailer levelers w tuff chocks, 2 extra tuff chocks, rapid jack and bag - rapid jack muliple uses looks like a time saver - allow you to use is to change a flat tire w no jacks needed..... All stored neatly in a handy bag - I like organized chaos 😎Click image for larger version
