Clearing The Field

8:39 am:
For me, if I am not organized then my life tends towards being chaotic. So, I gotta remember that. And, I must from time-to-time go thru all my stuff, sorting it out and putting things in their place.

Also, there are things that I have that need work. If I set those things aside in order to do something else, eventually those "set-aside" things accumulate.

So! I have to be organized. And, I have to keep up with things that need doing. Otherwise, my life is too chaotic to bear!

I gotta Clear The Field!


9:10 am:
Yesterday afternoon when I arrived at my Cousin Jacky's home for the latke party, I did not go right in. The inside of Box Van was a mess. What if somebody at the party asked to go see Box Van?

I spent about a 1/2-hour putting things away. Now that I have the two overhead cabinets, there is enough space up there to get everything that is scattered around Box Van's floor picked up.

This morning I attended to several things that needed doing. Some of these things have needed doing for months:
➜ Replace the tattered sun-block screen on the driver's side window.
➜ Find out how the 3-jacks can be wired up to control them from inside Box Van.
➜ Install the level gage for the propane tank [Link].
➜ Install a lumber rack [Did this yesterday evening].

Sun-block screen.


10:01 am:
I want to plumb-up the Marey tankless water heater. The fittings for doing this arrived with the heater. So, I should have no difficulty with this little plumbing job.

In order to test out the Marey, I'll need to buy a 12-volt RV water pump.

The Marey water heater will be located in the rear of the left overhead cabinet.

12 noon:
I just got one of the jacks powered-up. The jack works great!

Sounds powerful!! 😎

  1. George, I posted these questions this morning in yesterdays post so you might not have seen them...

    George, I have a question? All the water heaters I am familiar with require an outside source of air for the combustion chamber. I tried to look at the specs for your new heater but couldn't find any reference to that.

    Will you have to put a hole in the bottom or side of "Grandma's Attic" to install the heater?

    And will you have a carbon monoxide alarm?

    1. Hi Keith,

      Marey states that an air intake of 9" x 12" or larger is required.

      However, I do not believe that my installation requires any output or input venting. I will only fire up my Marey to do my dishes. Maybe 10-minutes daily.

      I will have devices/alarms for propane, carbon monoxide and fire.

    2. Marey Water Heater

      10:32 am:
      My Marey tankless water heater will be installed in the attic, just to the left of the fresh water tank.

      The Marey will sit inside a cabinet and extend upward clear of Box Van's ceiling. A vent will go thru Box Van's roof for the Marey's fumes.



      Are you now saying you are not going to vent a heater that clearly has a provision for an exhaust flue (per the picture)?

    3. Why Squire,

      Are we a bit confrontational today?

    5. Squire,

      I don't believe that there is anything to win here on my Blog's comments. Or to lose.

      Squire, when I reply to a comment, I am not playing any games with anybody.

      When I called your attention to the possibility of your being confrontational, I did that comment because I felt that you were being confrontational in your 12/9/18 4:28 PM comment.

    1. Ed,

      If there is a trick here, it might be you attempting to make an iota of of sense trying to explain this comment of yours [12/9/18, 7:43 PM].
