    Re: Bighorn Cheap Heat Install

    I'm excited to get started on mine! We spend about half (and usually) the coldest part of the winter in a state park, where I don't have to pay for electricity. And like Jim B. I HATE schlepping the propane tanks. I REALLY hated the 40# tanks on the old Grand Canyon.

    Mostly, it was due to the Cheap Heat cabinet extension. Plenum clearance for it was required.

    Gregg's furnace is flat on the floor. The bottom (under the heat exchanger) of the furnace was open to the plenum. All good there. But when you attach the Cheap Heat cabinet extension that holds the electric heating element, you increase the overall length of the furnace cabinet. This extension fits "onto" the furnace back end, once the back plate is removed. That extra length needed to be accommodated in the floor hole into the plenum.

    Got it.
    Floor plenums can be a bit of a twist to the install.
