Furnace in and working, need to wire every thing. Waiting for a programable thermostat, have one in the house and love it.

Thanks Jack, 1 in. tubing. Salvaged a hitch mounted rack for this and the new diesel heater fuel tank mount. We now have 5gal. diesel for the Planar instead of 7L plus extra storage above the tank.
The new heat/fuel is up and running, the prep. for our next adventure has begun.

T-day we will be going to our usual campout at Lost Dutchman SP in Apache Jct. AZ. Also Mary has an art show that F and S. Wx looks like 50's to 70's.

That was fun, camped at Lost Dutchman SP in AZ. Mary had an art show and had a nice trip. The wx was a little cool and overcast the first half but cleared up nicely yesterday.

Our new propane furnace worked well.

Added 2 motorcycle grip heaters to the fresh water tank. Stuck them on the sides. They draw about 2.5a total. Wired them to a fused source.

There's a handy switch, time will tell if they are enough. We get down to the teens sometimes.

Teens would be a warm day here. Wonder how they would work in sub-zero temps?

No hour meter on our Yamaha 2000 genny but I use it lots. Start running erratically and I see the oil light flickering.. Ah ha. Added a few ounces to fill and back in business.
Only holds 1/2 qt. Now I know low oil shutoff works!

I put an hour meter on my Yamaha 3000iSEB. Amazing how fast the hours add up!

There are a few things that I do miss about AZ.

Drivers license that is good until your 65th birthday...

The renewal for my Suburban here in WA state was $95.00 and change for one year.


Needless to say I am voting for $30.00 car tabs again!

Just returned from a no hookup camping trip to a very full local lake, lots of rain this season. All systems functioned perfectly. E trike got few miles on. Decided to add a e bike to the collection. Set for late April delivery. Peddling has been good for my bad knee.
