How to Prep New Grill for First Use?

2023.03.25 01:59 FiberGlassNoGood How to Prep New Grill for First Use?

I just bought a shitty Dyna Glo grill on clearance and am looking to use it this weekend. Is there anything I should do before using it for the first time? Was thinking of letting it get hot and staying hot for a bit to burn anything off but is that all I need to do?

Any reason I can’t use PEX and Sharkbyte stuff for an on-demand condensing propane water heater?
Also, can tankless water heaters alone pump the hot water up two stories?

2023.03.24 01:36 WA-ahah DIY shed changing room with shower in PNW

I am thinking of building a small shed to dedicate as changing room, to change out of dirty clothes after done yard work. But it would also double as bathroom for guests: we already have an office shed where we can put a pull out bed couch.
We have electricity in the office shed and an outdoor faucet.
My idea is: - a prefab shed - utility sink - simple shower kit - portable flushable toilet - camping water heater (propane or eletrical) like CampLux Water Heater - bench and hooks for changing area
For draining the shower and the sink I was thinking just draining in the ground with maybe a catch basin and a drain pipe. Like an outdoor shower, usually they just drain in the ground.
Is that feasible? Do you have any suggestions? We don't have much experience for big DIY projects, so any shortcut is useful.

1988 Chevy Step Van 30
Alright folks... This ain't no Instagram Rig. This here's a real hauler. Plenty of storage. Ample standing headroom. Sixteen feet of paceable floor for rainy days... Underneath the impenetrable ah-lou-min-eeum skin lives a ground shuddering carbureted Big Block 454. She'll do 70 smoothly. New head, new gaskets everywhere, new water pump... Fires right up. Hood mounted solar Trickle charger for starter battery. Numbers: 2-325w panels, 1000w inverter, 170amp/hr lipo4 battery, 30 gallon fresh water tank, 30 gallon fuel tank, 18l propane water heater. The solar generator has been active for years. The mini fridge is dual chamber and runs 24/7. Admittedly it's a no-nonsense, raw, reliable Rig. The Dark Side: windshield leaks during heavy rain, no grey nor black tanks. Pulls right during hard braking. Could use new tires after one or two more adventures. The Maxxair controller died and I stuck a small 120v fan up there. Honestly this thing is tough as nails and costs little to maintain. 26' stem to stern, 7' wide, 9' 6ish" with the panels. $18,500 obo. Located in central GA.

Propane fireplace main fire won't ignite
Disclaimer: i know very little and im not sure i understand what i think i know. I don't understand why the pilot light isn't reaching the thermocouple or thermopile. I believe that's part of the reason why the main gas line won't kick on. I've used a screw driver to open the pilot gas line screw all the way but the flame doesn't increase any more than shown here. Pilot light also doesn't light all the way around. If I manually heat the thermopile with a grill lighter, i still cant get the main gas to kick on. My conclusion from google would be replace the assembly but I'd like to get yalls input before I spend the money and effort.

2023.03.23 02:08 yahwehyeehaw Please help me understand propane heating of a pool

Please help me understand propane heating of a pool
I live in Arizona and I'm renting a home with a pool and heater. I haven't used the pool yet because it has been cold. I just found out I have a heater by the pool guy and I believe its 400000 BTU.
I have family coming to visit me around first week of April and temperatures are expected to be low's in the 50's and high's in the 70-80's. The current pool temperature is around 68 degrees without any heating. We definitely want to use the pool while they are here and that will make or break the vacation. I think possibly 80 degrees would be comfortable (correct me if I'm wrong)
I have never had a pool so I'm not sure how to go about this. The tank is 500 gallons and the minimal amount I can fill up is 100 gallons of propane. If I wanted to heat this pool up, ideally should I run it only at night every night and let the day time hours be heated with the sun. Based on what I'm reading, someone said it uses 4 gallons an hour which is roughly 15 dollars an hour. Once I heat the pool, will it stay heated for a bit where I don't need to run it multiple days in a row?
The gas company said they will give me an introductory rate to fill up the tank at $2.58 per gallon for the first fill. I only want to use the pool for the week they are here and then I am moving out so I want to know best practices of heating the pool and how many gallons you suggest?
Thank you for reading!

2023.03.23 00:32 htom3heb First time towing - how to prepare?

Hey all,
With spring approaching I want to start preparing for camping season and am soliciting advice.
I have a 3rd generation Tacoma (towing capacity of 6400lbs) and want to tow a 2014 Forest River Rockwood Freedom (~1800lbs dry weight). I'll have camping gear in the bed (i.e. beer lol) and a filled propane tank for powering the fridge and heater. The trailer does have electric brakes - I'll have to buy a brake controller and a hitch, yeah?
Never towed before so don't know what I don't know. From my reading, this should be easily doable, but I'll have my family and dog in the cab with me so want to make sure I've made every preparation necessary for their safety and mine.
Appreciate your time.

2023.03.22 18:16 I_dont_know_you_pick Options for heating my shop

Last year I put up a quonset hut to use as a shop, it is an A frame style, 28' wide x 30' long x 16' high (in the center). I sprayfoamed the arches to r12 and framed my own endwalls with 2x6 (roxul r22). I heat the shop with a wood stove when I am working in there and use a 4800w electric heater to keep the building at 10°c in the meantime. Unfortunately due to the size of the building, it seems a 4800w heater is not sufficient as I have burned out 2 heaters so far this winter. I am researching other options such as propane or an air to air heat pump. I live in northern Ontario and temperatures drop to -40 often, what's my best option here?

2023.03.22 15:17 AbsorbedInUrThinking Is a heat pump right for me? Northern Ontario

I applied for the greener homes grant/loan with the plan to replace 50 year old windows and doors. I had my energy assessment yesterday and the guy recommended we also get a heat pump. He said that new windows and doors won't help much to reduce our heating costs, so a heat pump would be really beneficial along side our current heating. I've been doing some research and it seems like a heat pump wouldn't make sense for our area.
Currently, we use just propane to heat and it's about $350 a month. Our furnace is only 5 years old and we usually run it October to May. We spend around $250 a month in hydro, we have space heaters in almost every room always on.
My house is around 1100sqft. We don't have a basement or attic/crawl space.
I live in rural northern ontario. The temperature is usually -15C to -30C from December to March. Our summers don't really get too hot so we don't have/need AC.
I'm not opposed to getting a heat pump if it makes sense and can help reduce our costs. The grant will cover some of the expenses to have one installed. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks.

2023.03.21 17:00 ShippingMammals Advice for running lines to/from Rocket Mass Furnace and rooftop solar water heater.

I recently moved to the sticks up north ways and after dropping about 1500 so far in the past six months on propane I'm planning a rocket mass furnace in the basement this year with lines run to and from the water heater in addition to a solar rooftop water heater for summer months as well.
I've got the basic design in my head, and building running lines is not going to be hard, but I'm more concerned about how to pump the water through the system with safeguards for no wateflow over heat etc.. I have my own ideas. I'm a DYIer. Trained farrieblacksmith, wood shop, metal fab shop, 3d printers, laser cutters etc. so plumbing doesn't scare me, but I don't have the necessary time and experience to avoid gothcyas or known limitations/issues etc. and figured best to ask folks more in the known than I.

Electrical setup:

The van's wiring was done with great attention to detail. There are plenty of 12V and 120V outlets throughout the van, including in cabinets. There are fuses for all the outlets, ensuring that even if something with high voltage is plugged in, the system will remain safe as everything is protected by appropriate fuses. The wires are labeled and organized, and all joints are sturdy.
The van's power system includes 600aH batteries, 350 Watt Solar Panels, and a DC to DC charger. This setup has never caused any issues, and the batteries are typically charged between 80-90%. Even on cloudy days, I could go a few days using everything on full power without any problems. There's a Renogy app that tells you how much power is left in the batteries and other information.

Lights

The van's lighting was designed with stealth in mind, and provides ample light. There are dimmable 120V lights on the ceiling with switches at the entrance and near the bed, as well as 12V lights under the kitchen and storage cabinets and under the bed. Additionally, there are configurable LED lights around the padded headboard that can be adjusted for color, brightness and patterns.

Heating/cooling:

The van has two Maxxair 05100K Ventilation Fans, one above the bed and one in the main area. These fans can blow in or out, allowing for optimal airflow when used in conjunction with the Sirocco fan on the wall, which is highly adjustable and can be directed towards the workspace or bed.
The heating system uses a Propex HS2000 heater, which is superior to commonly used Buddy heaters. The Propex heater features two chambers, one for burning propane and another for circulating hot air. All burned propane and exhaust gasses are released outside of the van, eliminating any health or mold concerns. The van was able to maintain a comfortable temperature inside even during a winter storm when temperature outside dropped to 4 degrees.

Kitchen:

Black walnut countertops with ample space and includes a Dometic CD-50, 50L Drawer Refrigerator and Freezer. I use InstantPot for cooking, which uses electricity, but the propane locker has been carefully designed to accommodate any other cooking equipment if desired. The van's water system utilizes 5-gallon jugs that can be easily replaced at most grocery stores, with a total of 30 gallons of water storage in the back. There is also an option to install a larger water tank underneath the van, if desired.

Vehicle Details:

  • 132k miles
  • DIESEL engine
  • Full inspection on 2/17
  • No accidents
  • Regular maintenance
  • Backup camera
  • 6.8" Pioneer Display with built-in Amazon Alexa, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth
  • Weathertech floor mats
  • New tires

2023.03.21 04:33 Dhrendor Form 5695, which tax credit for combi boiler?

Had a Navien tankless propane combi boiler installed last year. It does both heat and hot water in a single system.
Form 5695 Part 2 isn't clear which credit should count (or better yet, both)
Line 22a has a $300 credit for a "A natural gas, propane, or oil water heater."
Line 22b has a $150 credit for "natural gas, propane, or oil furnace or hot water boiler"
It's a water heater and a boiler combined in one, and should have the efficiency required for either credit.
IRS didn't understand the question when I called and tried to explain.

2023.03.20 21:22 PrepperandBlondie What's Coming

What's Coming

Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Longer lasting and fiercer hurricanes, Possible banking crisis v.2, Yellowstone blowing its top, Global freshwater demand exceeding supply by 2030, Over-fishing the oceans, Dead zones in the sea, Fertilizer supply issues, The giant blob of seaweed, Climate change, Solar flares, Climate wars, CO2 levels, New diseases, Permafrost melting, Sea level rise, Drought, Heat waves, Resource scarcity, WW3, Deadpool dams, Electricity scarcity, Bees dying off, Rivers drying up, Global commerce in chaos, Microplastics everywhere, Energy wars, Melting of polar ice caps, Deforestation, Soil erosion, Land degradation, Invasive species, Acidification of oceans, Food insecurity, Cyber attacks, Mass extinction of species, Nuclear accidents, Water pollution, Air pollution, Geopolitical instability, Refugee crisis, Terrorism, Economic inequality, Artificial intelligence, Antibiotic resistance, Mental health crisis, Obesity epidemic, Aging population, Political polarization, and Biodiversity loss, on and on it goes…
Well, that’s quite the list! Meanwhile, life goes on one day at a time. I have bought my prepper gear, extra food, water, medical supplies, heritage seeds, solar panels, and a stock of firewood. My preps are not perfect, but there’s not much more I am willing to do. At some point, I felt it was enough. And I don’t spend any time worrying.
As a kid, I grew up in Mexico and Puerto Rico in the 1950s. It was very third-world there at that time. Horse and donkey carts were everywhere. We had a water heater that required you to build a fire with twigs in its combustion chamber. We used kerosene lamps. I have slept in hammocks and hidden in holes in the ground as hurricanes threatened. As an adult, I have homesteaded land, built a cabin from scratch (even milled the wood myself), gotten water from a spring, and lived off-grid. I learned that candles are costly if you need to use them for daily light. But my message for you is that it still works. It’s comfortable enough. Our ability to adapt is quite robust. So get some supplies and gear, and then relax and have fun. Whatever will come our way will include horrible, incredible, love, fear, and surprises, just like now.
The items on this website list what I bought after the Almeda fire had me evacuated from my modern rural home without notice, and I had to live without home, power, food, or propane for a week. I was not prepared. So I searched the internet, read, watched videos, and bought all the items that I felt would keep my family alive and well.
The items were not chosen because they are the best of the best; they were selected because of size, weight, usefulness, price point, and portability. An example is the fishing gear kit. It is small, fits in my duffel bag, and is cheap enough that I bought it and have it. As they say, the best gear is the gear you have. I did not buy a great rod and reel; I bought a fishing kit that’s well-reviewed and is in my car trunk now. All my gear is portable. I may need to flee (another fire?), so the gear needs to go with me. On the other hand, perhaps I have to hunker down at home. The gear is at home because it is in my car trunk. Not everything is in my trunk. I have a list of items to grab from the house. Some items are seasonal. How much notice does one have if one has to leave? It’s all a compromise. Be prepared, and forget about it.
If the rest of my life passes uneventfully, my gear will be passed to my now adult children. They will undoubtedly encounter the brunt of “What’s Coming” and find my legacy to them helpful.
