gun safe de-humidifier

6 posts in this topic

I have a fire resistant gun safe, that does not have an access port to run an electric de-humidifier. Curious as to what you have had success with. Battery operated? The powder stuff, I don't know the name of? I could run a cord through the door seam if needed, but would be leary of fire hazard. Thanks

Most have a hole towards the bottom,probably in the back where you run the cord for a plug in unit. I had the granules in the can unit but started to wonder if I was using it correctly. The top had a clear cover and when the stuff turned purple it had to be put in the oven and cooked for a while until it dried out. I decided to get a plug in rod and that seems to work well. I can't remember but I think the rod was maybe $30 or so. If you don't have a hole I think you could probably drill one pretty easily. Once you get through the metal outside the wall is just a couple layers of sheet rock. The rod device had a simple 110 cord leading to it that didn't have the plug attached. You run the cord through the hole, snap on the plug and plug it in and you're good to go. It doesn't get too hot but I would make sure nothing was touching it.

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...
