HYDRONIC HEAT REGISTERS


It appears there are two ways to distribute the heat from Hydroinc heatersn in RV systems.

The post following this one shows the CONVECTION method that uses no fan but distributed radiators. Also look on the GMC Hydronic web page
http://gmcmotorhomeinfo.com/hydronic.html

Here you will see Marc's installed system that uses the passive registers Also look at the TECHNIQUE from the ALDE company that describes the Heat wall concept of convection heating.

The picture above shows the method of registers with fans to circulate the heat. This method requires more 12 volt power since you have to drive a fan which also creates noise.

There are now two Blogs following this topic. You will find links on the web page shown above.

SOOR IS GONE - ONE MORE ROUND

Terry did a great talk on Terry's toy's

Manny holding Court
Magnetic Book Marks were a great hit

Bad news, Jerry's blown head gasket was a chipped piston and maybe a cracked cyl.

Yep, it was great. Great friends, good food, and no stress. I will post all of the pix on the photo site, but I have to reduce 50 pictures or so. ;>)

There is a great picture of us all doing wifi, I did not take it, but I would like a copy when we find it.

SOOR activities


A minor activity starts the day before the SOOR. The DuneFest will bring many thousands of folks into CoosBay, a small neighboring city ;>) This will create some traffic problems so chart your arrival course well.

The up side is, there will be more sand toys and vendors there than you have ever seen.
I am sure some of us will stray over there for a visit.

Here is a link to their web site
