Re: cold weather covers for fass or airdog

I have plans to make a cover for my filter setup, not for the cold but so shield them from all the rocks they spread on the roads during the winter months.

I really dont think a shield would help a thing in the cold weather.

Re: cold weather covers for fass or airdog

The filters aren't gonna get any colder that the fuel in the tank...it's just a hunk of plastic hanging down there. I know y'all have winter fuel and added treatments for -50....if it's not gelling in the tank I can't see the filters being much different.
And wind chill doesn't count since it doesn't affect anything other than us.

Spending money I don't have on crap I don't need to impress people I don't know.

Re: cold weather covers for fass or airdog

i wouldnt be worried about the cold. i would just be worried about dragging the damn thing off.

Re: cold weather covers for fass or airdog

but in the tank there is more fuel so it'd take longer to gel and dragin it off could be possible in the drifts or in the ditch i hope not to find that one out... but i would think in the cold just sitting the metal filters would attract or shall i say keep more cold then the plastic i would just hate for it to gell in the filters but still have good fuel in the tank..... thinking of borrowing some of the welders on locations scrap sheet metal and see if i can't fab something up as to help sheild them from hittin stuff but didn't know if anyone had insolated theres
