Cold weather and propane usage

1 post in this topic

The last time I was on Red the gas light was going out when the furnace kicked on because of the sub zero weather.

I talked to an Atwood tech that stated the furnace was a high pressure system, and the 1/4" lines on my house were fine.

I talked to another Atwood tech this morning that was more knowledgeable. He stated that it was a low pressure system and 3/8" ID hose would improve the flow and help to keep it from freezing. He also stated that I should wrap the tanks with a blanket, and use the foam water pipe wrap or sleeves on the hose that is exposed to the elements.

Just thought I would post this in case it may help someone else.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
