Ok, here is the next issue. I know...I have issues.
My tank. It is Aluminum. That is good. Problem is it is only 7" deep. It fits under my tool box perfectly, but is shallow. It is about 1/2 " shorter than the width of my bed and is about 3' in the other direction. 42 gal. tank I believe.
Now, I am assuming it is baffled, will check on that later today.
Would like to use a Hot Fox in it to heat, but they will have to shorten it if so because it needs a 1/2 " space and the shortest one they make is 8".
Will that work, or should I just go in a different direction.
One person suggested that I have a 4 to 6" hole cut out under the hot fox. Have a small reservoir welded in. This would give me a longer hot fox and help with air intake when the tank is low. (That is lessen the chance)
I don't know, should I just get a different kind of heater and forget the hot fox? If so, what.
Notice, I live in Fl. So the problem is not here, it is when I go North in the winter, which I do on occasion.
