You going to add a stove to the new one or just using the furnace?

We generally stick to the Kenai Pennsula and Anchorage Area, but we are planning a trip up to Chena Hotsprings this fall!

I think so! It will likely be next year although, we may head south for the deep of winter this year and run the propane for the other winter months.

StreamlineAK:

I was planning on putting in a Little Cod woodstove in our Airstream. I was talking with an insurance agent specializing in RVs as I am changing carriers. I mentioned that I was planning on putting in a wood burning stove. I was told not to do it as I wouldn't be able to get our Airstream insured. I am now reconsidering.

How did you get your Airstream insured with having a wood burning stove?

Streamline w/ coal stove was not insured ( other than regular auto insurance when towing) I have not installed a woodstove with the new Airstream yet so I do not have any advise. But, I currently use progressive and they seem to cover anything.

Full Time, Now in a 2014 Flying Cloud

Ok, it is now getting to the teens at night AND we still haven't ironed out the best plan for winter. We are still highly considering leaving for a few months. We really wanted to test the trailer a little in the cold before making any decisions. The propane works great, but in a cold winter, it's not going to be cost effective. In a warm winter (even Colorado temps) it would be just fine. I have some really good ideas for a secondary heat, I'm hoping some engineers might be on here to review.

Secondary heater tank heat system- Install a "y " in the furnace ducting. One duct to furnace as normal, one duct to inline fan. I would turn on the inline fine to move the wood or oil warmed air from inside the trailer to the tanks. Sourcing air from the from the open area near the heater under the seating). Anyone know how it could effect the heater if the fan was accidental left on while the furnace was going?

I've winterized the outdoor shower and I was thinking that could be a great place for a fresh air inlet if needed ( if the stove doesn't use a double wall/flue system for fresh air). It seems I could run a very narrow ducting from the stove install location to exit the outdoor shower. This way it doesn't permanently alter the trailer. I don't believe a new outdoor shower would not be expensive in case I wanted to remove the whole system.

What do you think?

Another idea: a tank temperature monitor. I had two ideas. The first is getting a basic wireless home weather station and removing the tank cover then placing the wireless receiver next to the tank. My second idea was dropping a wireless pool temp gauge in the black tank, but I have concerns on loosing it every time I empty the black tank as well as clogging/ valve concerns. Any other ideas?

Haven't really checked into this, but is there a wired system where you could drill a small hole somewhere near top of gray and black tanks for tank water temp sensor? I just purchased land in Ninilchick, AK and hope to get my Airstream motorhome up there and full time once I retire in a couple of years. I'm wondering how well the motorhome will do in those temps. Really hoping to get some sort of 'garage' built to keep out the winds and snow, but don't know if I'll be able to get it all sorted out 1st summer. Loved the Streamline thread, will be sure to follow along your current thread. Looked through your Flickr account, some AWESOME photos!
Thanks, Derek
