Moon Lake Refuge

Propane hatch??

5 posts in this topic

So I see posts on the for sale pages on FB of some pretty rough looking shacks.  One guy yesterday was selling an 8 foot house(frame was 8 foot) with the wheels extending out past the house.  I thought houses needed to be under 8'6 and I wonder if any buyers will be told that.  Beside the point.  The propane tanks were mounted on the outside of the wall right next to the furnace.  In the wall he has a hinged door for access to an enclosed propane storage area that he also uses as a freezer...  Would you ever consider this?  Seems like it could open up a world of issues with propane leaking into the house.

Federal Regulations (CFR), 23 CFR Part 658 states maximum width (excluding mirrors) at 102.36" or 8.53 ft. except in Hawaii where width is 108" but I don't think anyone needs a wheel house in Hawaii. If the body is 8' the wheels need to be under the body. 6'6" is about max you can go with the wheels extending past the frame. Described propane is scary, and I would not even consider parking my rig within 100 yards of him.

Up till 6-8 years ago nobody cared. Most old 8 footers converted to wheel houses had wheels sticking out, including me, but we went to the lake and dropped them. Law Enforcement could have cared less, now we run them all over so they care now.

I was trying to say that and people thought I was crazy.  Guess I'll stay crazy if it means staying in one piece.  Or waking up after a nap in the LP haze.

    • 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!
