Ford truck did not charge my TH battery when in motion yesterday so battery almost dead last night - so check that when picking up
Should of brought my Chevy -Chevy Gods are laughing at me right now
#2 it was 27degrees last night - the gas heater will not come even close to heating this TH - will be contact acting FR about that especially w extreme winter package --- I know some have stated heater was weak but this is unacceptable -
They are plenty of bigger heaters 30,35,40 btu heaters out same brand that will fit in location no problem - will be working on this issue
Yes I can get Electric heaters but I'm not always plugged in and running generator all night is not an option at some places..
An the adventure moves on to hopefully Montana tonight
Yep, the heater sux, to put it nicely. That's why I have the Heat Wave catalytic. Way more efficient than a gas hog furnace. It would take one in the garage and one in the front, cause they emit a radiant heat, no fans, which is really nice.
How warm did it get inside running almost constantly?
When in Destin this past Oct-Dec temps dipped into high 20s, I ran a 1500W electric all night and the Wave on low to keep it in the low 60s inside. This is with the garage door closed and sealed off (somewhat).
I would say if you are relying on furnace only, it has to be at least 35k BTU. But again, it is expensive to run. And, if you go this route, expect to increase 20# LP cylinders to 30#ers.
Safe trip and thanks for sharing with us.
I case you need it, and if FR hasn't changed it, I'm attaching a pic of the fuse blocks front of trailer (where the truck connects via the 7 pin), if you need it. Ignore the "letters" and the statement to remove a wire, they were there to help explain things.
