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.

    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
