Grabed the TH today and it was a day of fine tuning and moding. Mounted some towel hooks in the bathroom. Mounted a 4" tube for the slinky between the holding tanks and my favorite was geting rid of the flexable heater ducts that were in my way every time I pulled somthing out of the front storage compartment.

Good job Griz......looks great.

As hot as it's been there you probably can't imagine ever needing that heater.

We had a high of 63 degrees here today....Brrrr.

Griz,

Looks clean and it appears you have added some room. I just can't understand why heater ducts are run where they will get damaged. Sometimes you just have to wonder what was going throught the designers head

Griz,
Long time no talk, how are you buddy?
The mod looks great. I know that will hold up to the abuse better than the flex hose. I realized this weekend how easy it could be to tear that crapy flex hose if your in a hurry or one of your friends has had a little too much to drink and needs to get a table out. That is going to be something I might have to look into.

BTA all, beautiful weather all this weekend at Bell Mountain. I think it got up to a high of 77 on Saturady. I got to use the heater this morning for the first time the take the chill off. Riding season is here as far as I'm conserned.

Nice retro Don. Here is a simple way to keep those cranks off the basement floor. Cost $2.99.

Hi gang. Seems like we have all had a little lull around here. Good tool mounts HB. Todays project is to hard wire the inverter in. So its off to Home Depot once again. Might have to pick me up some of those. Looking for a Key holder also. Need to find out where High Deasert found that matching billit strip he used. That looks sharp.

Don

Top of the mornin Sean! Folks are up and at'em early this morn. Got the water heater bypass put on Friday. The wx folks are saying we are going to have a cooler than normal winter. Was at the local Ace yesterday looking at galvanized 4" heater duct to cover the plastic stuff. It comes open so you can make the cover and snap it shut then secure it.
Speaking of WW heaters, do all the 5ers have the cold air return behind the steps? What a bad design. The heater needs a good supply of air to function right. I'm going to put a grill on the step riser and in front of the heater to provide more return air. Course it ain't an issue for SOCal is it??

Hey Griz, those pictures I posted last week of my inverter, I said the wire was 8AVG, it's in fact 0AVG. Might be an over kill tho.

HB I had to move the steps to get in there and mod the ducts so I could Couple the 3" flex to 2" ABS. That vent lets a lot of air in and is about 2" away from the steps. I think it has plenty of breathing room. It just is an optical illusion looking at it with those steps where they are. What I found most that made me go hmmm was all the sawdust left in their and where the water heater is too. I sucked it out with the shop vac. Nothing like leaving sawdust around where gas appliances are. Sometimes you just wonder how much pride these manufactures have.

Don

Your're right about the house keeping, or lack of it. When I removed the wall to get to the water heater there was a pile of trash. And the WH control module sitting in the middle of it. It, supposed to be mounted on top of the heater case. I had to vacume the metal shavings out of the module for G** sake. It may be a lack of concern by the mfg's, but in my view good management starts in the trenches.
