Back window seal of a boler

I know this was discussed somewhere but I can't seem to find it. I need to replase my front and rear window seals and lockstrip. Does anyone know is the seal that Scamp carries will work on the boler.
Also, I like the idea of putting a propane furnace in my boler. It would be nice to have if I'm camping at a non electrical site. Is there any worry of gas poisioning. Do you use gas detectors. I had originally bought a little portable heater from Canadian Tire that uses the little green propane tanks, but found out later that I shouldn't run them when I sleep.

Yes I used the seals from scamp
And they are one And the same
Also
I place propane furnaces in all my bolers
As long as you got an alarm you should be fine

If you putting in your own furnace
Just make sure if you use elbows
And joins on the outside of the boler
The only connection you should have on the inside is to the furnace and stove .

All my joints are on the underside
Than I use a plastic slit pipe to protect it from rocks

And make sure you test your joints
With a little soap
And your nose
To make sure there is no leaks

Thanks. Did you have to replace your windows too. I think the PO replaced them at one point but didn't do a good job cutting them to size. Should the plexi be cut the exact size of the opening, little bigger, little smaller?
As for the furnace, I dont want to go to crazy. The PO gutted all the equipment so there is no gas lines anywhere so I'm leaning towards a small space heater. Maybe one of those oil heaters that uses carosene.

I do replace the plexi
Only because I use a tinted plexi to make it look sexier

I did find I had to make the plexi a but smaller on the edge due to the lager thickness I use
But what a difference

As for the furnace
It's very easy to do
And it's fun to learn something new
But that's up to you

P.s
If you replacing the seals make sure you get the tool to I stall the lock strip
It saves alot of time and stress

Brian, yeah a lock strip tool saves the hair from turning gray. $15 or less, even for a one time use, is worth your time and effort (and aggrevation!).

That would be a life saver. The seal I'm buying is a one piece with the lockstrip already attached so I'm thinking a butter knife might do the trick.

Did you replace your windows? I am also in Manitoba. I used the beading / lockstrip from Scamp and had the windows replaced at Hometown Auto Glass
