Less than a month before leaving for the Southwest and I’m beginning preparations for the journey. Plan to leave a few days after Christmas, weather permitting.
Dolly bought me a Wave 6 catalytic heater for Christmas and gave it to me early so I could get it installed. And today was installation day. My son-in-law, Evan came by this afternoon with a bunch of adapters and a hose ready to do the job for me.
The weather is so nice he drove his Harley over. Nice looking bike!
Don’t know how Evan steers that monster.
Just as we started the install, up drove Jim, Sarah and my grandson, Keaton in a brand new 2018 Honda AWD CRV. They had just left the dealership and stopped by to show it to us. What a beauty!
Even with all the excitement, Evan managed to get the gas line installed and on came the gas to give it a test.
Found a convenient gas line under the fridge to cut into.
Evan ordered a quick-disconnect with an open and close valve included so I can just pop the hose from the connection under the fridge and store the heater away when traveling.
I didn’t install it on a wall because I want to move it around to point the heater either toward the living room or the bedroom. If I find that it easily heats the entire living space, I will consider hanging it on a wall permanently.
Exciting and busy day for Dolly and me. We are not used to so much activity. Full moon tonight.
See you later.
