Nice job Tim, I would like to see it in person. We did wonder if the TwinTemp Jr uses more LP than the hot water tank and furnace it replaces when it's operating or about the same?

The parting shot with the front light sconces was a nice touch, but we might be partial, they came from our Overlander.

Great video Tim. I was surprised, not one adult beverage in the refer to celebrate such a fine restoration. I'm sure that's been corrected since the video was completed.

That was awesome! Your video is a much better alternative to watching the news with my morning coffee. Nice job.

Tim,
What a improvement! I think you should quit your day job and go into businees for yourself restoring trailers. Kind of a GSM west thing!

Thanks everyone. We're real pleased with the way it turned out.

Don, love those lights. They a perfect fit!

I know I read the TwinTemp uses less LP than a pilot water heater since it only uses LP when needed. I'm not sure how it stacks up to a water heater and furnace together.

My guess would be less since its not heating a large burner like in a furnace.

That was great! I especially liked the "Go ahead, make my day" picture of you and your Sawzall.
