FWIW- I have a Newport 9000 by Dickinson, I'm happy with it in the Excella.
California has restrictions on wood burning stoves now- what next.
I did a thread a year ago -Heaters heaters heaters- describing methods to warm the rig.This Dickinson propane unit will run for 6 1/2 days straight on full using only a barbie sized tank. also Woodstock stove company in N.H. has a small soapstone stove suitable for use in a trailer.

Love the idea BUT how do you do the pipe ?

How do you make a sealed water proof connection with a heated pipe like the exhaust of a wood stove .

I just installed a dickinson newport in my 56 and ran it up the old chimney flue. But I still need to caulk the area around the pipe, just to avoid any water issues.

I have been looking at this product from Rutland 500 RTV, which is a high temp silicone caulk.

Any other ideas.

I'm sure you know the acids in rtv silicone are not conducive to aluminum. You could put a small piece of flashing around the chimney, and silicone that to the chimney. There's got to be a way to do this, I see houses everywhere around here with fireplaces and aluminum roofs.

We use that and similar products from other manufacturers for fire stopping floor and wall penetrations in buildings. I'm not sure if it is safe for aluminum.

Electrical grade silicone...

Look for ELECTRICAL grade silicone.

It does not have the metal etching qualities of most silicone sealants.

I use this stuff all the time for sealing electrical connectors on vehicles that are used in rough off road and extremely dirty conditions. This keeps the dust/dirt/mud/water out of the electrical connectors and does NOT cause the metal etching issues generated by most silicone sealants.

But, this in no way addresses the HEAT issue; only the corrosive effects that most silicone sealants impart when exposed metal is in the application area.

Keep in mind you cannot run 2 different types of fuel up the same chimney. You always need to install a seperate chimney for woodburning stove. "always" I also noticed on a few pictures that the crome satck wasnt discolored, I wonder if it was ever used. Pipes ussually discolor when heated, kind of like a HArley Davidson exhaust pipe.

It's likely that the stack is a double wall construction stuffed with mineral wool insulation, just like a lot of modern exhaust pipes. No discoloration would be visible on the outer wall, except possibly right at the base where it physically touches the heat source.

I though the inside pipe would be just plain double wall. Now that you said that it would make sense. It probably will control the heat better to.

Hi everyone,
These forums have been a great resource for us as we prepare to live in our 25' Excella year round in northern Vermont. Now we turn to you for any advice you may have that is specific to our situation. My girlfriend and I are full-time students at a very small college, and we think we're ready to make the lifestyle changes necessary to live off the grid with a smallish PV array and a woodstove (the Sardine from Navigator Stoveworks) for heat.

Our woodstove will provide heat when we are in the trailer and the propane furnace will serve as a backup for especially cold spells. We will not be using the water plumbing in the trailer so we think it is not a huge issue if the trailer freezes while we are away during the day.

I anticipate many concerns from the seasoned veterans of airstream living and I thank you in advance for any advice you have for us. Keep in mind that we know many will think we are crazy people, but we have done extensive research and have been encouraged by experienced people in the area. We are committed to making this happen and excited about what we will learn in the process.

Our pressing issue right now is installing the chimney for the woodstove, so that when the woodstove arrives we can get it up and running right away. We have a pipe boot from www.pipebootexpress.com to weatherproof the seal and we plan on using Pro-Seal 34 caulk, both on recommendation by the stovemaker.
How do you suggest we go about cutting the 4-inch hole in the roof, while making sure we don't hit any electrical wiring or other important components?

Thanks for any help,
Chester and Sarah
