heater exhaust pipe or something?

2 posts in this topic

We have an old camper turned fish house and it has a heater in it. The piping that exits the house has one little pipe surrounded by a bigger pipe. I think that the bigger pipe is the air intake while the small one in the middle is the exhaust, right? We have been having problems with wind getting in. The original set up just had a grate flush with the outside covering the pipes. Then we used a half piece of stove piping covering it from the wind. Well, that works alright but i want something better so the pilot doesn't flutter in the wind. I tried attaching three inch stove pipe to the middle pipe and had a 5 foot vertical exhaust pipe. and then covered it all with a roof flashing. Well the tall pipe creates to much of a chimney effect and sucks too much of the heat out, and it also prevents air from getting in to the intake. So I'm trying to think of way to do this. I've seen on other houses people have mushroom shaped exhaust/intakes. Do you think one of those would work? and where can i get one? thanks for any help at all.

What you have is called a direct vent furnace. Before I would do anything to the venting system, I would make sure the manufacturer would approve the change. they usally have some sort of termination kit to prevent your problem.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
