they have a 40,000 btu unit for a little less money but I think it is the same size ( w x h x d )

should fit in a bay with the duct work just under the floor

    Oh, yeah, bays ...  yeah, I've heard that some of y'all have those.  Smiley

Could you expand a bit more?  What causes the carbon build up?  Why would it break the fire rings?  Any problems with injectors?
What is the DD Bible?  Smiley

Also, curious, would blending the used engine oil with either #1 diesel or gasoline eliminate the above problems?

surely your not thinking used 2 stroke oil...

8 gallons of diesel is $16.00, the potential damage is $16,000.00.

why would you consider this ?

Sure it's not leaking somewhere else like the valve cover or blower, or governor and running down the deck of the block from above somewhere?

It's not worth it I have seen it to many time in marine engines where they changed the oil and pumped the oil back into the 4000 gal + fuel tanks only to cause carbon build up and breaking the fire ring. When we went on a service call checking for used engine oil in the tank on a boat was 1st priority if found it would void the warranty then big @$# tears would flow from the owner. I strongly advise you read the DD bible for 76 years it says NO but it's your dime

I glued/screwed 3/4" boards across all my wall/ceiling studs and leveled the foam to the boards.  This gave me 3/4" more foam plus all my metal was hidden.
Then I added 1/2" plywood to the boards.

But, I wish I had thought of the camera trick...

 anything that would come standard in an atypical 14 wide "mobile" home.  


     Here's just one, from Suburban --

http://www.airxcel.com/suburban/products/furnaces/sfq-series

     I like this part:

    "SF-FQ Models are designed for interior serviceability with a front (inside) gas connection and only a small vent terminal on the coach exterior, permitting installation up to 9 inches from the wall. Since no exterior access door is required, the SF-F is aesthetically appealing and a more economical installation choice.

All SF Models also feature quiet, multi-ported stainless steel burners, sealed forced-draft combustion, automatic direct spark ignition and low amp draw. Cut-out size: 7-1/2" H x 17" W x 20" D."

      The overall unit size is about the size of an ordinary drawer.  Power draw is 9 Amp @ 12v.
