    Help a new guy out! My truck froze

    they have delonghi ceramic heaters that are flat and you can hang or mount in the inside walls of the van. They have an anti freeze setting as well if you want to alternate them.

    Help a new guy out! My truck froze

    this is by far my biggest fear when purchasing a tm because I live in ny. I like robs idea with the two heaters just incase one fails the other will get you out of the woods. Also the thermometer inside the van so you can check it without having to go outside or open the doors to save heat. You...

    How to clean this

    looks like the rug in my living room lol it took a week and a half to dry after the carpet cleaner left too much water down. It started to stink like mold and I have to have it hanging on my dining room chairs for at least three days. Don't go too crazy with the water if you don't plan on...

    If you had one year to start a business....

    thank you guys so much I really appreciate it! I want to start by taking the online classes here at tmf then some iicrc classes if I can find them locally. Those manuals are great I will read every one of them and I want to invest in a truck mount. I don't know what it is but I have always...

    If you had one year to start a business....

    Yea man I have to agree with you! lol As I respond to this post at 4 in the am getting ready to hit the water I have to ask myself why I'm even still doing this. I guess because I wanted to start with a truck mount over a portable in the beginning. Maybe I would be better off working my way...

    If you had one year to start a business....

    oooo man that is an awesome quote! I thought about borrowing money from a bank but I really don't want to go into business in debt! If I stick to my savings plan I will start with a used van and a good truck mount. I have no problem rocking a wand instead of a rotovac to begin with.

    If you had one year to start a business....

    I think because we have two little kids and I am the main source of income in my household that I am going to clam in the mornings and schedule my jobs on the weekends/and or clean when I get off the water/ or just get a part time job to cover the basics and go at it. Its going to be really hard...

    working for a Stanley Steamer

    damn yea I wouldn't even want to be a part of that atmosphere. I am going to stick to clamming until I have the rest of the funds needed to drive this thing home. Figure one more year of saving.
