I wonder if they could scan the coupon from my screen? No printer. It might be worth a shot.

Lets u look up HF coupons by part# or by expiration date:

Harbor Freight Archives - Struggleville

Supposedly u dont need the coupon. They threw mine in trash after scanning. U should only need the COUPON CODE. Which is the 1st 8 digits of the UPC barcode at bottom of coupon. So tell the cashier the code for the jack u want is:
19618479

Our HF store accepts the number from the coupon on a picture on your phone.

I actually can't read the small print on this coupon. It's all fuzzy. Beyond that I can't think of what I might want from HF.

It's alright...Things get fuzzy for me after a marg or 3.

It's not for YOU, it's for the bus.

Here are dome gift ideas for the old girl:

Retractable air hose & elec cable mounted in basement

I've got both of those already. It's much more likely that I'd buy something for the bus than myself. At this time of year the Webasto is looking pretty good. That would make the both of us happy.

I've been using grid power for the past several years. My heat choice off grid is currently propane, but it's so wet that I don't tend to camp overnight in cold weather if I have a choice. I need to get a better heat source while off grid. This was supposed to be a fishing cabin, and I don't want it to be a cold cabin. Besides, I can't think of a more abundant fuel source than dino fuel.

Webasto is nice, do you think it's worth the extra $$ over the Planar?

I intend to hit the truck boneyard soon...maybe get lucky !

I don't really know how they compare side by side. People that have used both say their choice is definitely Webasto as long as they're not paying for it. Apparently the rusky alternative heats just as well but has a few less features. I don't know what features.

I was cold last winter and was thinking about heating a lot, but as soon as the weather warmed up I seemed to have lost interest. Here we are again.

I had the opportunity to read the rusky translation of the planar installation instructions. I wasn't understanding a whole lot of of the instructions and figured there could be warranty issues. I'm pretty good at understanding broken english, but those instructions were out of my league. Not on a technical basis. They should have invested more effort into an accurate tranlation. Some of it was just jibber jabber, in english.

There aren't any inexpensive diesel heater on the market. Marine diesel heaters are double expensive.

I've got an old crucible for melting lead. It runs on karoseen and seems to be remarkably efficient on fuel while putting out excessive amounts of heat. I've attempted to make that into some type of heater, but it would be better if it could run on diesel. I like making things better than buying them.

It'd suck to wake-up dead from CO2 or have your rig burnt just because you saved a few bucks.

My bus has electric heat.

You won't wake up dead from CO2. You'd wake up gasping and go find some fresh O2.

You might wake up dead from CO though. It's a very real problem and anyone not sure of their skills should have a professional check their work ... and buy a detector.
