I could get a smaller, dedicated battery and wire it into the trailer and leave it there permanently for lights and for winter-time heater , but just not worth the effort at this time. My previous trailer was a Triton flatbed and I was so impressed with that, I stuck with the Triton again. I looked at other brands.
Not sure if I gave them a fair shake or not, but ended up with a Triton again. I think the Mission one was nice and are made out here so factory is close should one need major warranty work but there was some reason I went with Triton over the similar Mission. Was a few years ago, but I think the Mission version was 7. But if so, some would think that little bit of extra width is a benefit, but I wanted to stay narrow to make it easier to see when backing up and towing.
Hope that helps. Chadx said:. I use the front left corner for storage and now, the heater. But it's seasonal and all removable because in the summer, I have two motorcycle chocks in the front. This gives me many options. I can carry one or two dirtbikes in the front and an ATV in the back. Or two ATVs in a row.
Chocks work for MTB as well. The in-floor channels and low wall channels wall channels are an option are great for mounting superclamp mounts, chocks, tie down rings, etc. For sled superclamps, I have two hooks spaced a few inches apart. That way, when a sled is loaded, odds are that one of the two can be used without playing the "3 inches further" or "three inches back" game. I use the channel tie downs for running large ratchet tie down straps over the ATV tires.
True that on the 7x16 trailer the floor channels are spaced narrower which only allows one side of the wheels to line up with the channel and be tied down, but if you align it carefully, you can have another on the opposite side or use alternative tie down points on that side I have an L-track on the other side that was needed for snowbike tie down so I hook to that.
For heater, I used a cheapo chinese version of the diesel parking heater. It runs off a 12v battery for the glow plug and fan and a little diesel tank. Exhaust must be vented outside through the exhaust pipe. Combustion intake is typically also routed to fresh air but trailers have enough venting that my intake is inside. There are expensive name brand versions of this type of heater as well, but I've been running this one without issues so far this season.
They draw about 10amps of 12v for while the glow plugs are on for the first 5 minutes and last 5 minutes the heater is on , otherwise 2 or 3 amps of 12v for the fan and fuel pump. Mine is 5kW which equates to about 17, btu. They make them in 2, 3, 5 and 8 kW. The little pulsing fuel pump clicks with each pump 1 - 3 times per second and might annoy some, but I don't care because It uses so little diesel that I typically start it when at the gas station and let it run the 30 - 45 minutes while driving to the trailhead.
My trailer isn't insulated, so it doesn't really keep up at highway speed, but as soon as I slow down and am driving to the trailhead and pull in and park, it's making ground and blowing full heat. It takes about 10 minutes for it to blow full heat so one could also start it the second you pull into the parking lot or right before, then it would be blowing full heat by the time you parked and unloaded the sleds and started to change.
If you do run them for shorter periods, just fire it up every couple weeks and let it run for an hour to clean them out. Many tips and trips to set them up and things to look for are online possible change fuel lines to a different material as some come with larger diameter, softer hose rather than the hard vinyl, small diameter that are proper, etc.
Besides price, the main reason I went with this is diesel I can get at any gas station and can self server. I dislike going and getting propane filled.
The little 2 gallon fuel tank mine came with I've only filled twice and I have a lot of hours on it so far this season. There are videos out there with tests to measure fuel burn which would give you a better idea than my eyeball estimate. It takes them 5 - 10 minutes to shut down once you click off glow plug comes back on, fan revs, fuel stops, fan runs until combustion chamber and heat exchanger fins cool a bit, then fan shuts off.

In response to my response, do you know of any way I can hear the bonus tracks without having to purchase the CD?
Also, I forgot to ask about some Schnitzler albums that based on your in-depth response you might know about: Consequenz I and II. How do those sound? I think I sampled a track from the first one and I really liked what I heard. What about Constellations? I am debating whether I should throw out big money for those. Please share your thoughts! Location: NYC. Location: Leeuwarden, Netherlands. Sytze , Dec 17, Thanks for all the recommendations.
Tietchens and Schnitzler have such vast, expensive and broad catalogues that it will take me a long time to hear everything, but I'll get there one day. Did Schnitzler do anything in the 90s and s that's worth hearing? How are the Tietchen's Club of Rome albums? Did he ever revisit the aesthetic he developed during his Sky period? If anyone wants to see a cool documentary that includes interviews with Schnitzler, check out Kraftwerk and the Electronic Revolution. I think that was the one.
It's the only interviews with Schnitzler I've ever seen. Conrad Schnitzler , Pharmakustik. Clock DVA. Zoviet France. Various , Jerry Kranitz. Mein Glas Fabrik. Maria Zerfall. Includes booklet. Mike Vamp. Rational Youth. Henri Chopin. Lucas Trouble. Ken Moore. Steve Hitchcock.
