    Probably best as a bathroom book. Short chapters. Really entertaining.

    That was going to be my comment as well. Look at the area of the cooler that air can actually pass through. I think the shutter is plenty big enough.

    I haven't installed mine yet. Plan to do it...

    LOVE mine. Have it on my 160HP. I started out with an 82".. I think it was a bit too much. I swapped out center hubs to the 'short hub' and that got me down to an 80. IF i was only on wheels.....

    As for prop pitch and temps. Yes, it's super easy to see with the monitor, Fuel flow is about 1.5 GPH less a cruise. I'm using WOT for much less time. Now.. it remains to be seen if I've gone too...

    I do need to do that side piece. It's soft for sure. Getting to be to cold to mess with that stuff! I think it's due in the hangar once more before winter. New intercom needs to go in. The...

    Well Fall arrived when I repitched the prop. So cooler ambient. I went from way coarse pitch ( I went to Ohio and Indiana and back) to real fine pitch.
    Also.. I changed the center hub on the...

    All is well on the TCOW. I'm amazed at how much cooler it runs with the prop pitched way down flat. I'm probably a little flatter than I SHOULD be for wheels.. with the 31s on there now. Ski...

    A buddy has one in the tail of his RV- ( i can't remember the numbers worth a damn)

    it's a taildragger one. He has to be careful with his tow bar to not hit the unit. I plan to do one in the...

    I guess what I was saying is I'm gonna stop more often than I NEED for fuel. I don't feel the need to tanker it up, and have never actually topped off the Auxes.

    I did buy a new nozzle, and mechanic did ream it out some. I think it's worth trying a bit more. I think the one he took out was a 'pepperbox' as well.. so I'll be able to go back to the current...

    There were lots of guys throwing out math on the RV forums. I want to say it was something like .54 or .56 POUNDS of fuel per HP per hour. So.. that means 300hp is 27 or 28 gph wide open. Sounds...
