I saw on Youtube the other day that there is a particular small spider that is attracted by the smell of propane oderant. The guy said you can try to blow the web out, but it is pretty tenacious. He said he used a small plastic wire tie to pull them out.
You do need to use something relatively soft so as not to damage the teeniney orifice(#45 on Dometics).
A quick story. Since I got my Little Joe
, the refrigerator
has not worked well on LP; moderately better on AC but still below what I thought it should. I reviewed the installation instructions and modified the installation as follows:
-added a 12 volt fan above the coils
-added insulation to the refer and the the external walls around same
-per installation instructions added a baffle to narrow the airspace around behind the coils. ie 'if the space between the wall and the coils is greater than 1" place a baffle, etc, etc" per the illustration.
- I also placed a baffle between the cooling coils and the heater stack to direct boiler heat directly out of the upper vent.
All of this helped to a greater or lesser degree, but still not up to snuff based on conversations with my brother, who is very satisfied with his LP refer.
After the last trip, I decided to review everything once more. Going through the manual, though no dimensions were given, I noticed that on the illustrations the upper and lower vents were similar sizes, so I did careful measurements and calculated the free air space of both vents. I found the lower vent/access to be too small, about 20% of what it should have been. I modified a return air vent from Lowes to fit the door and now have a nominal 55 degree differential between the refer temp and ambient.
I'm still testing it out on my asphalt driveway, highs in the mid and upper 90's and it's working very well.
The Little Joe
is, well, little and the refer is fitted below the stove, behind the left wheel and the left rear corner of the trailer. Not many options for a bigger door. The replaced vent in the existing door seems to be working very well.
Well, maybe that story wasn't so short.
