Another "part"... I received a new camp stove for Christmas; a Camp Chef Everest.

I have a relative with the Camp Chef Everest. Two things I like most are the drip tray being stainless steel, the burner adjustment control; much more controllable than any other propane fueled stove I have used. The cooking grate is heavier gauge metal than most. That does show in the weight, it is heavier than my Coleman.

We spent the past week in the mountains at our cabin! Burned a huge number of slash piles; there was just enough snow to do that safely. Our NM mountains had more snow on the ground in late October than we have now. :( It looks more like late spring than winter. The only good thing about the sparse snow was we could drive all the way up there and didn't even need chains. Usually by now we snow shoe.

MtnDon

Any guesses ? :?
I wanna spray some electric plastic coating or under body coating on the metal door frames AND see which
one would lead to the min amount of forming condensation ?

http://www.plastidip.com/home_solutions/Plasti_Dip_Primer


Any guess on which would work best ? :thinking: :thinking: :thinking:
I'm hoping for 50-75% reduction

I know the underbody coating would stick better but in only comes in black

I'd like to think it would help; but I don't think it will do much except that the plastidip colors will brighten up the place. :o Of course it would also help to avoid those static electric surprises when you touch metal. :D

It's a little cold today at 63+ something. It did not spray well.
I warmed the can up in 120 deg water to help a little
I do notice a very very strong chemical smell.
I can also tell you that the spray dissolves the white foam easily.
Will report more tomorrow - hope it works at least :lol: :lol:
