Well I tripped thru my favorite store (Goodwill) at lunch and this jumped off the shelf at me.
Brand new and unopened !
I have plans to control the fan that will draw heated air from the hot air plenum that will surround the remote wood stove and force it to the caboose. I can now set it and forget it !
I purchased a second one to place in the solar hot air heater circuit as well. On the lighter sunny days it will control a separate fan to again force the air heated in my beer can solar hot air heater into the caboose also.
I looked them up and they were $15 - $20 each on the net. They were $1.99 each at GW today
Took a short side trip this morning and went and investigated a 8 x 20 cargo shipping container. The tare weight of 4800 pounds kinda scared me at 1st but then I realized the caboose has probably blossomed to over 5k so that helped to put it into prospective. I am thinking strongly about a fireproof utility building for the monster wood stove and a water storage building. It is less than 2 miles from the caboose so I have got to make a call this evening and find out a price. It was pristine inside and out so it is probably not what I am looking for ! $$$$$ I like cheap!
It would take the place of the glider trailer and all the planned improvements would be made to this unit It could house the bath and shower and the rear bath area that is now in the caboose could become a down stairs bedroom solving the elevator bed delima that is holding me up!
Well got the fella on the phone finally and my heart sank $3500.00.
It was a very nice and almost pristine single use enclosure. We had a long conversation and he promised to look for a multi use beater for me at a discount. We talked about storage containers turned into tiny homes and I volunteered to do some work in lieu of cash to get the ball rolling. To date he is selling them mostly for storage buildings and electrical enclosures for the huge switch gear and components for grain drying operations. He sounded very interested in the new tiny house sideline.
While this is not the exact box it is a twin to it that I found on the net
