Thanks guys!

I have a sticker on the back window of my service van that reads "Attitude is Everything". I certainly believe that to be true!

It's always my pleasure to add something of substance to a thread when I can (and sometimes just for a little humor also ).

Got the old one one, I did bite the bullet.

Already kinda glad I did, It has been take out in the past, the quality of the reinstallation leaves a bit to be desired. I found no mounting screws to hold it in place, only the 2 to keep it fastened at the exhaust. Wires were twisted back together, not all with wire nuts.

Other than that it was a 15 minute task to remove. This will give me a chance to straighten things up under there


Thanks for the encouragement!

Twisted together? Kinda makes you wonder how some people think. I mean, your sleeping back there and the furnace is running and what if something happens? Yikes!!!
I'm glad you pulled it out, Bro. We can't afford to have something happen to you guy's!

Delivered

New Furnace was delivered today. The foot print is completely different. So, I have some fabricating to do. The unit will need to be mounted 90, intake/exhaust mounting will require a plate mounted on the outside to take up from the original hole mismatch.

Put temp power and fuel to it, it started right up, quiet with good flow of heat!!!

That's what I was thinking it was for, or maybe a heated floor

What made you decide on the hydro-flame instead of the NT?
