One Good Turn Deserves Another!!

Hi,
I recieved a Coleman On-Demand propane&battery powered hot water heater to field test.

It came with a packet of coupons for $25.00 off the purchase of same ($180.00) which expire 1/31/04. These coupons are for me to distribute to family & friends. I haven't used the unit yet, but I am offering these coupons to anyone who thinks they have a need for one.

Email me your mailing address at RobertC@fishingworks.com

I'll get ya one in the mail as soon as I can.

It's a small opportunity to thank all the friends and folks who have offered their support, advice, humor and hospitality to this site in the last year.
Quantity is very, very limited - so act soon.

It's first outing is Tuesday to the local sledding hill for hot-cocoa or cider as needed.

What is this thing? Do I have to have it, because it sounds too cool not to have.

It's a product made by Coleman, and released this year. It lists at $180.00 or so.

1st test - We left it and the jug of water in the back of the truck while the kids and I went sledding/boarding. After an hour or so, we took a cocoa-break.

The water does not pre-heat in a reservoir, it heats during flow via an exchanger. This exchanger is designed to heat the water to 100 degrees above the temp of the water in the jug, to a max of 160 degrees.

The unit did not come close to that, and used probably a quart run through it to get up to *warm* - with the source water at approx. 35-40 degrees. The hottest the water got was just enough to dissolve Swiss Miss, and leave the marshmallows crunchy.

2nd test will be at room temp - to simulate a normal morning during typical camping season - to check it's usefulness for car camping.

Conclusions will be posted after 2nd test.

More importantly, my son (5) made several runs on his snowboard which exceeded 50 yards, and has started executing heel-side stops. My daughter (3) rides her sled solo, but does not yet know how to ditch or steer.

    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.  
    • You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?    
    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
    • Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently.   I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
    • No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
