Propane wall heater flickers badly

I had two of these professionally installed this past summer. As you will see in the short video, the flame sputters excessively at times. Almost as if the unit is deciding it needs to come on, and then instantly deciding it's time to turn off. Could this be due to my roughly 5,000 foot elevation? I...

Question about replacing doors

Have you guys found that it's better to buy new doors at Home Depot or is it better to buy doors specifically made for mobile homes?

Also, what is the good way to find the manufacturer of an out-swing back door? I need to order a new rubber seal.

Thanks!

Re: Where to place propane wall heaters?

Because I'm off grid and furnace blowers consumer large amounts of power. Perhaps one day my solar power system will be sufficient enough to run the furnace blower most of the day during the cold months, but for now, our system is not big enough to support that luxury.

Re: I need to upload a 20MB video

A good friend suggested that it's likely due to my elevation at 5400 feet. He said there is an oxygen sensor built in, for safety, and the flame is flickering at times because the unit is waffling back an forth between being on with a low flame, vs. turning off.

Sound about right?

I need to upload a 20MB video

My Mr. Heater propane wall heater is doing something wacky, but the website doesn't permit large file uploads. How can I share this video with you guys?

Need help identifying manufacturer of back door

Does anyone know who makes this type of mobile home door? I can't find any stickers in the door jam that identifies who made it. I am thinking about replacing it because I can't find the missing piece to the bottom of the window, and the seal around the door is worn out. door.jpg In the event I end ...

Can't get the furnace cover to go on

The bottom piece snapped on easily:

But the top piece doesn't seem to have the same kind of snaps. Does anyone know how I'm supposed to attach this cover to the furnace frame?

Combining two rain gutter downspouts

I have a seamless rain gutter on both sides of my house that drain on the west side where I park my truck. Therefore it makes for a muddy situation when it rains, unfortunately. I'm trying to think of a good design to combine both downspouts and then divert them into a pipe that I will bury in a tre...

Needing some new stairs

I see that most stairs made for mobile homes are the fiberglass kind. I'm sure they work fairly well, but can anyone recommend a good website that sells some steel/wood stairs? I'm wanting something a little more sturdy.

Thanks!

The home needs curtains now

I realize Home Depot and other similar type stores sell curtain panels. But in this mobile home, there are about 5 different window sizes. So the standard panel sizes at Home Depot will work for some of my windows, but not all. Can anyone recommend a good place to get curtains for windows of various...

Re: Seal for bottom of front door

I found out there are two kerfs on the bottom of my door that are designed to firmly hold a special seal. So this is the one I ordered, in case anyone else may find this helpful:

Eliminating heat via bathroom vents

Since heat rises, has anyone had good success with pulling some of the summer heat out of a home by turning on their bathroom vent/fan?

Thank you.

Re: Seal for bottom of front door

Ok, I will check my local Ace Hardware. If I do need to buy another threshold, do you know of a good place to do so? I checked on MobileHomePartsStore.com. They sell a lot of doors, but no thresholds.

Thank you!
