Yup, the smoke is thick up here but you in the valley have it worse. How about for dem marshmellows we place a patio/deck fire pit in the AS. We would have to place it under a Fantastic Fan of course. And when the snow and rain abates we can carry that fire pit and smores outside and bundle up under the stars....if the clouds part.

The benefits are that it runs off of 110VAC, and you can have the fire on without the heat if it's just the ambience you are looking for! You can even adjust the speed of the flame flickers to really set the mood. Did I mention that it comes with a remote control? It also requires no hole cutting in your shell as it needs no vent.
Hi Ben,

Yes, the flames and ambience is definitely what I'm looking for!..thnx for the info.

What about this for a safe fire? Nothing to vent, no worries about flames spreading...

Hi Mel,

Funny you should offer this!..I went and used my dig camera and videoed a glowing fire in a fireplace last Christmas that was being broadcased on t.v. as well as the campfire last time we went camping w/our Safari..

Since we're also on the issue of safety, I wanted to ask to see if any of you have either or both Smoke/carbon monoxide alarms and burgurlar alarms in you AS?

Munimula has 3 fire extinguishers, 1 smoke detector, 1 lp leak detector, 1 low tire detector and trust me no one would want to break into my trailer. The result would be very unpleasant. Worse than an unmanaged lp device exploding. In reference to last pm events, You decide on a stove yet, how about a sterno fondu pot gone awry. Tim

Hi Tim,

This morning, I started a thread "for safety" about smoke alarms and burgular alarms..I think "it's a Good Thing" , as Martha S would spout..

The LP and low tire detector sounds like a winner too..thnx for the input..
