Lloyd, Ron, Thanks! Lloyd, I seen on the news the cold is dipping all the way to Florida ! Ron, I think the temps are relative to where you live and you get used to it, so when it goes below your comfort zone it really affects people. I just plug along, try to do shop time when it's really cold to keep going. Spring can't come soon enough .

I don't know Terry, I'll be 40 this year... and I've lived here all my life. I don't think I'll ever be used to the cold.

Totally agree with your comments on spring.

Toter looking good!

-cheers

Insulation question

Hello All, Here are the pictures of where the TV will go and some inside the cabinet area. I think it could use some insulation because there are spots that look like they have none at all.

Any suggestions are welcome. You're getting very good at videos Terry. Keep this up and a show would not be out of reality.

Sorry, have some more

Realized I had forgot to download a couple. This is the cabinet for the TV, the Right side of the cabinet inside, the VHS, and an area above the opening to the cabinet where I think maybe this is the antenna wire?

I can see where the top of the windows connects to the cab topper. Looks like this has never had insulation put there and I believe this area must leak cold and heat like crazy.

Good Morning, Piker, I spent a bunch of years in warmer climates and still ended back in the cold, guess I'm not all that smart . Lynne, too bad I'm so far away would love to help out with your project, there is so many things you could do in that area. Well some excitement last night, MIL lives a 1/2 mile away and she's a diabetic who the Dr. decided to change her meds. didn't hear from her like we always do so Eleanor checked up and she was close to a diabetic coma, sugar level 21, so paramedics were called and she's now in the hospital, never a dull moment, she's doing okay today, Eleanor's still with her in the hospital. 9* this morning and supposed to go DOWN from here , have I ever said I dislike winter?

Lynne,
I think stuffing some fiberglass bat up there will help a lot.
Terry,
Hope that your MIL is doing ok, changing meds for a diabetic is always a challenge. It was cold here last night, got down to 30*, but is going up to near 70* with little to no wind, and lots of sunshine.
Frank

Terry - best wishes to Eleanor's mother.

Lynne and Jerry - I am with Frank. Putting some pink bats in the areas will not hurt. It looks like they have some spray foam already in there. They did nice work but appears to be quite thin so anything you add will help. Try to keep the bat "fluffed".

Lynne, on your cap insulation: I have used Reflectrix in overhead cabinets to good result. Just cut to pressure fit. You could do that for your front cap, tape the seams, then stuff with insulation. Have you looked at the denim insulation? That stuff does not itch.

maybe we need to be trading places for all this weather. Y'all could come visit Texas in the winter and I could go north for July and August when it is floating near 100* here in central Texas. Right now it is 70*, going to 80*.

Good Afternoon, Frank, Gordon, will pass the good wishes on, thanks. Well temps are falling, they said it would . Very windy, they claim wind chill factors will be -50* by the weekend , boy am I glad I retired from driving and sold my auto repair shop. When temps get like this the road service calls and the repairs go crazy, didn't mind the extra money coming in but everyone wanted their cars fixed at the same time and no one was happy and being diplomatic can be challenging when your cold and the phone doesn't stop ringing . Ron, sounds like a deal!

Roxul is another type that is heavier. Supposed to be fire resistant as well. It is quite a dense insulation so less care could be taken to avoid compressing it when installing.

Terry - sounds like some planning or fabricating time is coming up.

Being curious, I did a quick search on fiberglass. It is also fire resistant. When it gets hot enough, it melts but does not burn. However, the paper or foil facing WILL burn. However, the fiberglass in my TT is unfaced. (That probably relates to the previous hot vs. cold climate discussion.)

Thanks for mentioning Roxul. I had never heard of it. It sounds like it might have some definite advantages over fiberglass. Besides the fire resistance, the sound-proofing properties might be a particular benefit while a MH is in transit at 60+ MPH.

Gordon, I hadn't heard of roxul ins. looking at it, it would probley work pretty well, looks like Home Depot carry's it so easily avail. its a little pricy but you might get what you pay for, something to keep in mind. We're doing some small jobs inside the shop for a few days, no way I can work outside in this weather. I have the genny that is tore down that needs to be put back together also so I have enough to keep me busy. It's supposed to warm back to the 30's by next Tuesday .

We used Roxul in the fireplace chimney. It was easy to work with but a lot heavier than the pink. As I recall the R factor was way higher than the pink.

Terry,

Sorry about the MIL. Good thing Eleanor went over there or you would of probably lost her. Hope she is better soon.

Checked on the Roxul and it looks like a good product. I think it would help with noise up front while driving too. Lot of hollow area for sound to bounce around up there. Reflectrix is what I am putting in the cupboards and what I get from the Cath Lab throw away bin. Might stay with the pink stuff but know well not to pack it down. Have insulated several houses and my Dad stressed that. I learned a lot from him. Meeting Sat with the mobile guy to see what he would do and if what I want is possible.

Hope you all are doing well. It was 9 here this am too and I can't wait for winter to take a hiatus.
