    Lighting propane heater

    Just start your TM and pump, then turn on your propane, then go light the heater. If your light the propane and then turn on your TM, you will be ok. A few times I have turned off my TM and didnt turn off the heater. The heater just went to the pilot light. Like I mention unless the...

    Can you list all of the manufacturers?

    I took a tour of hydramaster a few years ago and they have quite the operation. I like stanley steemers idea about just making your own if you can. Save sooo much money. But their footprint in the van was larger than other units.

    lowest priced house in your city?

    Living in a area with boeing, starbucks and microsoft house prices are crazy here. The closer you get to seattle the higher the prices go. In the seattle area, you can get a 50-100 year old house that is under 2000 sq ft for about $500,000. With a little yard. If a house is under $200,000...

    True costs of cleaning carpets (Approx. 5 rms)

    That is really good advice. I do believe that the more of a foundation you have, the bigger you can build your house. Knowing your cost, having a good business and marketing plan is part of a good foundation. Eliminates waste in time and money.

    lowest priced house in your city?

    Ok, if it has wheels, is it still considered a house. You can get a single wide on a 30-60 lot here for around $100,000.

    How much do you "net" per year??

    88 now. Few think I am apart of a secret operation. Some know me personally. I live in the Mill Creek/Everett Area in south Snohomish. I am a one truck operation, been in the industry for over 10 years. My favorite color is green, I like B rated horror movies and yes I am dating a playmate.

    Can you list all of the manufacturers?

    The real questions is which ones have the best reliability and customer service. I own a HM that is doing good. When i get a new machine I was going to go with the TNT because of the long history of success and the owners helping me diagnosis my HM when it broke down last year and I have...

    Lighting propane heater

    BTW I have talked to Les Judson, great guy with good info about anything TM related. He said you dont have to cool down the heater before turning it off. When I first got my heater I was told I have to turn the propane off and allow the cold water to cool the coils. That was BS.

    Lighting propane heater

    I have a 3ht. I moved my heater to the back of my van so I dont have to climb in the van and light it and to also keep the heat down in the van. I start my TM and turn the pump on. Then turn the propane on and then light it and go clean. You can light it without the pump on. The coils...
