    Not yet. But I think we are going to add one.

    It is working great. keeping my 450sq ft poorly insulated garage nice and warm. Should be no problem in the camper as it is less then 100 sq ft

    OK 90% installed in the camper and running great. I have only had 2 fires in since I put it in. Hopefully I'll get a good fire going tonight after work. Trying to burn it as much as possible to work out any bugs. It's not very cold here rite now so it's hard to get a good idea of how well it will heat the space.

    In the second pic |I had it burning charcoal. We are trying lots of different brands to see what works best. So far Kingsford seems to burn really long, but leaves a pile of ash. One of the other brands we tried left behind almost nothing. I burnd it all day long on Saturday and only had about 1/2" of ash in the bottom.

    Well the camper needed one last thing done to it. The door was all rotten and flimsy at the bottom, and there was huge gaps all around. So I made a bigger better door. 2" thick, insulated pine shell.

    Keeps the cold air out, actually almost no air gets through it. Now I will have to make my dedicated combustion air intake for the wood stove. (not happening today, for now we will open a roof vent) Oh well its a bunch warmer by the door now!

    Thanks for the compliment. Best way to figure this stuff out is to just do it.

    Installed a steering box stabilizer in the Dodge 2500

    Steering feels much tighter now. Dodge's solid axle front ends are known for their sloppy wander (even the newer trucks). A very easy install, especially on the hoist. Might be a little harder to do on the driveway. The brace is very heavy all 1/4" thick material.
    Basically it ties the frame ends together, and supports the bottom of the steering shaft so it cannot flex around.
