Modifying heat duct in storage area.

The heat duct hanging down from the ceiling in the storage area and blocking the hanging storage rack I installed has bothered me since Feb last year. I finally got an idea to change it. Now, I want to add another register to the bathroom using the same idea and use the duct that now supplies the storage area and add an outlet for the storage area. One down, one to go. Maybe tomorrow.

Got the hot air register added to the bathroom by blocking off between the floor joists and adding the supply duct over in the unusable space of the storage area. By blocking off between the floor joists, it eliminates the register-duct transitions hanging down into the usable area of the storage compartment. Now to put foam insulation around all the drain pipes going into the holding tanks to block off possible varmint &/or air intrusions into the camper, re-install the panel and reload all the stuff. Man they sure cut big enough holes in the floor for the drains.

Only took 1 can of spray foam to fill around 3 drains that were cut in the floor in the basement storage area. I guess they are cutting weight down for us unless they leave the cutouts in the bottom.

Finally got around to putting everything back in the basement after re-locating the heat duct and adding the one for the bathroom.
Coffee can is for the 50' Pocket hose.

Thanks, the 2 heat ducts are the white alum panels on the alum rafters above the hanging rack.

Bring it over and we'll "Git er dun" Might even build you a hanging rack too. Have room for another camper, TOWTA requested (read Demanded) I trim some trees and move the camper over on the gravel and out from in front of the garage. That request was granted Sat morning in the misting rain.
