    So 8 days of TGR thread reports and it is finally out. Now for the new one to be put into place and back connected and providing heat. Is that going to be the same thread or a new thread starting?

    As of today my furnace is not running ]but I’m so close. Hooking up power and a new fancy thermostat that I might control with home automation
    But my gas dryer is working using the new gas line I split off the original furnace line
    Look I didn’t blow the place up. It was easy. YouTube

    Recently hooked up natural gas in my house. Ran it to the furnace and to the oven and an extension for a natural gas insert and eventually the pool heater. Everything passed the soapy water test, but we had a mystery, very very faint and occasional, gas smell that we couldnít quite pinpoint, so ordered a gas leak detector. Found the pesky little leak no problem, and then went back and checked everything else and found a couple more that still did not show up with soapy water.

    Anyways, moral of the story is spend the couple bucks on a detector.
    focus.

    It just doesn’t quite fit! I’m going to have to pull it out and peel up the tray.
    Tomorrow maybe? My shoulder is fried. I had to do it myself

    Everything else is pretty much ready

    In Asia, they use buffalo dung patties for cooking heating. Who needs a furnace when youíre riding a Buffalo?

    If you want to put an addition on that double wide, you can also use buff patties for wall construction

    GOAB, in another thread, wrote that he has disconnected his entire sewer drain plumbing to fix it. Perhaps he can route the drain into the furnace and heat the place with dung.

    Iím picking away. I have this little thing. I donít want to blow heat under the trailer. Iím going to use metal tape to seal that up. It that or move a couple of interior walls out 3 inches?

    Anyone got a better idea? I wonder how much the proís would charge to deal with this? I think they would just hope nobody noticed

    Probably if it is under the trailer and will have no heat, you will want to insulate that in some way and not just put a piece of metal to cover it. But the question really needs to be asked, where does that lead to just the area under the trailer or did it have a function with the old furnace.

    You need a piece of sheet metal, some caulk and sheet metal screws. Cut and bend it to block off that area outside of the duct. Tape it up after it is sealed. If you just tape it the tape will fail and or rodents will chew through and live in your supply ductwork.
