Thin Layer Of Steam On Inside Of Belly Bag

Hello. Last night I was underneath my mobile home and decided to cut open the belly bag to check for leaks. While there was no condensed liquid, I could feel the thinnest layer of steam on the interior side of the belly plastic. I am guessing this is normal because of the temperature difference from...

Wood Preservative For Steps

Hello all. :mrgreen: I had some steps built last fall from treated wood, green in color, and this spring I want to soak them down in preservative to make sure they last a long time.

Re: Plugged Condensate Drain

Only the main 4" sewer drop below the belly bag has heat tape and this is not plugged. The condensate drain is a 5/8" rubber line that connects to the main drop inside the belly bag. The condensate line has no heat tape, but yes absolutely it can't hurt to check the heat tape on the main drop.

Re: Plugged Condensate Drain

Northern Alberta. It could very well be frozen but the only portion outside the belly bag is the main sewer drop, which has heat trace and has never had a problem with flow. Also I tried some methyl hydrate into the top of the condensate drain to no avail.

My home is only a few months old and the furnace had been making grinding / clicking noises. A call to the HVAC guy solicited an immediate response....sure enough the condensate drain was plugged. I tried a little methyl hydrate, some diluted CLR, flushing as much as possible with water but it will ...

Quieting A Properly Working Intertherm M7RL045A

Hello from a new home in Northern Alberta. This is my first manufactured home. Previously I had a "normal" home with an old furnace in the basement. The new home/furnace makes a fair bit more noise than the old one and I am having trouble getting used to the new M7RL045A.....especially sleeping. :( ...
