    (For those not in co where I live we got around 8 inches some did melt)

    I realized I forgot to mention, I will also be making and installing an automatic transfer switch so that if I do plug into my block heater via an external outlet, it will not back-feed power, into my generator ( really easy, a 120v relay [single or double pole, double throw]

    I built the wood frame, did not have time for the walls (yay daughter friends birthdays.... yay ) I had one wooden divider in my bed [ for those that do not know your OEM bed (assuming it came with one) has slots (3 or 4 pairs, depending on bed size) for wood dividers, if you use the right size wood, you can lay down flat a piece of plywood as a flatbed, and have no wheel wells to deal with! ] now I have 3! (yay home depot 70% off damaged lumber) one piece was slightly warped others had knots that I cut out.

    Funny that the buisness won't let you cause of that reason climate change etc.

    I read an article last month on a lawsuit dealing with this same topic.

    A buisiness that allowed staff for years to plug in trucks after that buisness started contracts with electric car plug in hubs for those employees they then removed the ability for plug in for diesel's and stated due to climate change.

    They found out in further investigation that said company signed a contract with the elec/plug in power companies that stated no other elect shall and can be used for any reason for other vehicles but they chose to say it was for climate change when they were really getting a nice kickback from the other company.

    Good luck on your project.

    So parts are arriving, and the exhaust kit recommends a few ft straight before any bends...... so I am working on what to do.

    I have a few ideas..... no answers yet.
