RE: How do I install horizontal propane tanks in my Lance 1161?

Well Sleepy , I really didn't need the math lesson , I'm more than capable . Good luck to you .

RE: How do I install horizontal propane tanks in my Lance 1161?

Another alternative that would not require modification would be to go to 20# aluminum cylinders . This reduces the weight of each full by almost 20# , which can be considerable when lifting to shoulder height. IIRC you are down to WH and generator for LP usage . Don't have an LP generator so don't know what the consumption is , or how much you use it . If you dump at campgrounds most have LP so it may not involve to many extra stops . Just a thought .:)

RE: Bro's Dometic fails again.

Not quit enough info to diagnos , but if it was an ammonia leak during the trip you certainly would smell it . Now that you are home try t on electric .

RE: Winter Camping??

Depends on where in NYS , some places are easier than others . Ski areas are often accommodating .

Amazing how the once simple things become problems . This getting old is getting old . With enough people thinking perhaps a solution or two is in the near future .

RE: Artic Fox 990 and winter camping

Constant power from a switch sounds like a good idea for that little fan that blows in to the tank valve area. I might investigate a highr CFM fan too. It looks like a big computer case fan. I don't have a standard basement like a new TC . My tanks and valves are in a rear overhang compartment . I've insulated with 2" an 1" rigid insulation . Put in two computer fans , one in and one out from the cabin . In temps from single digit to freezing I'm reading 10 degree differential between compartment and cabin .

RE: Artic Fox 990 and winter camping

I've camped down to 0 in our AF. Probably seen some single digit negatives. No problems with drafts around the slides or frozen lines. Heater runs pretty much constantly below +10F, but even in a week of camping dry we didn't use up our propane tanks. Thanks , that's helpful . So roughly 10# per day .

RE: Artic Fox 990 and winter camping

I'd say you did pretty good at those temps . How much propane did you use ?

RE: Bigger bolts for SuperHitch on 2015 F350

I would not worry about the bent washers and the shear strength of the 1/2" bolt is 15,000 lbs EACH for a grade 5 and 18K for a grade 8. 15K times six bolts is ONLY 90,000 lbs so I now see your concerns.:S Wasn't worried about the bolts. Concern is the weak washer crushing down inside the oversize hole and allowing the bolts to become loose. Loose bolts are not a good thing. It's a legitimate concern . If lug nuts loosen on a wheel it will often sheer off the bolt/s . Once the clamping force is gone the connection is compromised .

RE: Baxter SP

Good question , there is also a 7' width restriction and a 22' length . Almost seems aimed at TC's . The " rules " state that a special permit MAY be issued by the director . The width restriction prevents any DRW vehicle to enter. This is probably true . The special permit is most likely for emergency,maintenance,construction,etc.,type vehicles . The wilderness surrounding the park is available to TC,s.

RE: How do I install horizontal propane tanks in my Lance 1161?

I managed to get accurate measurements for the propane compartment today: 25.5" tall 25.5" deep 12.25" wide The width might be a problem as far as using the ASME tank with the side mounted valve, gauge, etc... especially if they are mounted on the side of a 12" diameter tank. I need to actually see the tanks that I'm interested in.... to get accurate measurements. I don't see any advantage to using the 30# horizontal DOT propane tanks that must be filled in a verticle position. Thanks for the additional input... Chet It looks like your propane compartment is going to be problematic . Even if they fit I am not sure that being on a slide would qualify as being a fixed tank . I am not familiar with your camper as far as layout . Would it be possible to rebuild the compartment so the tank or tanks where facing you broadside when you open the door ? It may be too much work . Here is another company that makes all kinds of tanks , including fuel cells for propane vehicles . http://www.worthingtonindustries.com/Home

RE: How do I install horizontal propane tanks in my Lance 1161?

Fixed mounted propane containers for MH , B vans and commercial trucks ,are always ASME tanks . Dot cylinders are considered portable . The regulations for each are different . ASME horizontal tanks built prier to 1998 where exempt from OPD requirements because they could not be retrofitted , and they are built to a much higher standard . Horizontal DOT cylinders where not exempt . As far as I know there is no re-certification requirement for ASME tanks . New ASME tank do come with OPD valves .

RE: How do I install horizontal propane tanks in my Lance 1161?

Unfortunately the laws and regulations concerning propane containers are very confusing and often conflicting . There is an important distinction , most RV's have DOT CYLINDERS , some MH's have permanently mounted ASME TANKS . ASME tanks are much heavier . If the horizontal cylinders have a saddle at the back so it can stand vertically it usually means it has to be filled in the vertical and used in the horizontal . If you can find a size horizontal ASME tank to fit your opening it still might be a problem being on a slide . My old Avion has 2 original 20# horizontal ASME tanks that fit side by side . I have not tried to have them filled in place . I have had trouble having them filled some places because they look different and do not have OPD valves . They are exempt but fighting ignorance is a loosing battle . I spent 2 hours in my state Fire Marshals office trying to get definitive answers to no avail . I suggest a call to Manchester Tank ,they may be able to provide better information . Good luck

RE: 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod - 12. Waste Water

I tend to agree with Garry on the traps , grey water can get pretty rank. Fernco also makes rubber traps if you need/want something removable . Here is an alternative for a waterless trap . http://www.dyersonline.com/hepvo-1-1-2-waterless-trap.html?utm_medium=shoppingengine&utm_source=googlebase&gclid=CLqcwtPwhMQCFUMV7Aod2xkA3w

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

The Tempro 635 is grey , close to faded anodize . Both Parbond and Tempro are compatible with aluminum and good products . Be aware that Tempro does have a shelf life of less than a year ,according to manufacturer , not sure about Parbond , so don't over order . I have used unopened tubes more than 2 years old and found no problem , YMMV :)
