Mornig all, Rail, no coffee maker yet, I'm maxed out on electric, running 1000 watt work lights,saws ect. But the S&B isn't far away!!! I go thru at least one pot a day in this cold weather . I get up and turn on the heaters in the TH and set down with the computer and my first cup of coffee, waiting for things to warm up enough. Your right on the windows, it really has britened up the insides. Hope to get another in today, maybe an outside outlet or two.

Terry,


Just a question, but will the open door by the stove possibly cause a flame flash if you get gusts of wind through that door?


A friends house caught on fire due to that happening.

Hi Lynne, I think it might be something to keep on eye on, it (the stove) was in that location on the "donor" FW when it came from the factory (Fleetwood), so thats the location its going back in, in the TH. Thanks, I didn't think about it until now, but now I'm also thinking about the items cooking on the stove that are right by the door, good points to ponder . Maybe a wind/splash guard built in.

Looking good Terry, I bet you are glad that it is enclosed and insulated with those temps.

Good Morning, Frank, its very nice now that its fully insulated and warm inside, and I have figured out how to cut any holes in the sides from inside, so it holds any work outside to a minimum. Trying to get another window in today, my knee is still not doing well so we will see how it goes.

Hi Terry. Like the outlet. One of the issues we have with both the 5er and coach is the lack of outside outlets. IMO I would have at least two on the right and one on the left with switches inside to control them.

We have lights outside for the evenings and a bunch of lights in the trees for decoration and light. Would be great to be able to switch them off and on from the inside rather than going outside to unplug.

Hi Gordon, I could see that being helpful (being able to switch them off), in the case of ouside lights ect. I am in the process of running wires and switches now for the right side kitchen area, so I can include it easy enough, thanks!

Terry,


I think the guard would probably help with wind drafts. Just would hate to see either of you get hurt or your 5vr catch fire after all the hard work you have put into it. I love the way it looks. Tell Eleanor I am looking forward to seeing her painting talents put to use.


Keep up the good work, hope the knee relaxes for you. Lynne

Hi Lynne, just today I happened to be watching a series of videos that a person was rebuilding an old trailer, and the stove was by the door like mine, I think it was a 1967 Yellowstone 16 fter, and there was a what looked like an aluminum trangle guard on the wall going down to the stove between the door and the top of the stove. Looked like a wind stop to me!, I would not have paid any attention to it until you mentioned it, that might be something to it, hmmm maybe a nice shiny diamond plate wind guard. Eleanor is just deciding on just the right shades of paint, I'll make sure to get pics. I am just hoping the knee doesn't need surgery, the dr said it would someday when they replaced the other one, I can't have it interrupting my schedule ! I see the doc on the 16th see whats up then.

Great suggestion, Lynne! Terry if you make out of diamond plate, you can cover the sharp edges with that plastic automotive door trim? Will look great! Take care of that knee, and take the time to put on the brace Easy for me to say, Huh? I am also looking forward to the paint work! Rail!
