    Nice! How did that work with the reverse flow? Better that no airflow I imagine.... until it rains.

    Better than a box fan I suppose.

    Worked fine. A lot more cfm than the fan on the unit throws out. Rain? Hasn't rained here for over a month.

    Blower motor may overheat with no static?

    The wood isn't fire proof- nor the towel.

    Wiring not in conduit.

    Child could loose finger in the blower, or stray cat could be sucked in.

    ... forgot motor isn't; rated for outdoor wet locations.

    I have used a water hose with a yard sprinkler to get someone through the night.

    Should keep a "rescue" (or simular) motor on the truck!

    Kudos for getting them through the night,in a perfect world we would always have the right motor or a extra rescue motor but this isn't a perfect world and you gotta get a fellow thru sometimes. I have left the shop fully stocked in the morning and had an empty truck by the last call of the day,thats how it goes in the rural areas like im in sometimes. I least i am lucky enough to have a major supply house making deliveries to our area 4 days a week and can usually get back the next day.
