after 15 years of using kero heaters i finally decided to go back to HX....
just picked up a really nice one today from NAMCO....

but it is time as I am really putting a lot more into prespot and
prescrubbing with CRB and 175....all with tanks....
i have about 5 scrubbers...
this is my newest from NAMCO....weighs 22 lbs and works almost as good as a 60 lb crb....it also has a nice 1.5 gallon tank

over the years i have learned you just cant skip 2/3 of the pie.....

I keep a fire extinguisher right next to my Truckmounts just in case fire breaks out. It may not stop all of the fire but it’s peace of mind to me.View attachment 76833View attachment 76834
How will you get to your fire extinguisher when the burning is started inside the cargo ? I rather have it may be inside the cabin where it may be easier to reach for it where the fire might be less on that side :D

I saw that one of FB. Scary.

A few years ago when our Nissan nv came back from jon don getting the fuel tap installed I saw the little squeeze clamps they had on the fuel line where its connected to the fuel filter and thought they were crazy.

Switched them out to actual hose clamps right away. They had the little black ones u squeeze with pliers on there.... wtf

Yeah thats a lotta faith in a small plastic clamp. I went and looked at my Starfire Kohler 26hp fuel injected and they have real hose clamps. The way it should be.
