Day 6


The second Carrier project went quicker than expected and resulted in a nice, clean install on a '58 Airstream. With the outside temps hovering around 100, we fired that sucker up and let it run for a couple of hours.

When we returned, the inside temps were in the high 70's with a delta T of almost 30* (20 * temp differential is the industry standard.) Another great unit! Ken J will love his 26' rolling ice box now .

Got finished this afternoon and beat the traffic out of ABQ. Headed north on I-25 towards Denver for a business meeting tomorrow with the Aqua-Hot folks. I'm currently parked at a rest area just south of Colo. Springs.

Had to delay the trip a bit when VERY ominous looking clouds were hovering over Raton Pass in Northern NM. Turned on the weather radio and heard about the HAILthat was forecast for the pass in the next hour or two. Sat it out a bit and was ready to pull under the gas pump roof if necessary. Re-checked the locations, and they had passed to the East, so I went up the pass and didn't hit rain until Pueblo, CO.

A big thanks to klevan for offering his Airstream Haven as a work zone, Ken J for the opportunity to do his A/C and Blu-Hwy-Ldy for having her rig there as well for a few touch-up jobs left over from last year.

Well, time for a nappie.......more tomorrow
