    Shouldn't that electric cord be in a conduit?

    Looks like the ducts are sealed at least, but the weather proofing terp could be up-dated a bit!

    Welcome to my first post.
    Whats wrong with you guys, don't you know a mobile outside boiler when you see one?

    It runs on gas, oil, transmission fluid, wood, landfill left over, dinner scraps, and poo from 3 different kind of pigs.

    I've seen these units before. They went out of production in the mid 80's when the auto maker / enviromental speciality company fell on hard times. With the tires and shocks left on, you could qualify for an extra ten percent off your home owners "earth quake" insurance. These options made the unit highly stable in fault areas. The extension cord provides power to the hi limit control, and was the very first use of side impact air bag deployment systems. If the unit gets too hot, the limit opens, making the horn honk, and the tail lights flash. This deployed the air bags, and pushed open either the driver or passenger doors to "cool her off a bit". The only draw back was that this safety feature was a manual reset, meaning the doors had to be closed by "Bubba" after the occurence. This was the companies only known attempt at packaged units with the standard "roof mounted" A coil,(notice the the pvc drain line by the left rear door). The aluminum ladder configuration has been recognized by the prestigous HVAC Historical Society as some of the first "flex duct" ever produced. I'm sure you all recognize the manufacturer by now. These were the original "CHRYSLER AIR TEMP" prototypes.

    Im really surprised at you all. Dont you recognize a Whiskey distilling plant when you see one? The ducting is camouflage for the plumbing going into the basement. The large collecting vat must be the size of an outdoor above ground pool. Yes sir that baby must be producing about 10,000 gallons a day. LOL
    That presumed A coil housing on top of the Van looks suspicious or is it a pyramid? If nothing else, the extension ladder support for the duct is ingenious. I am speechless.
    I am now overcome by curiosity, sure would like to meet with and take a closer look at this system. If nothing more then to extract the designers logic.
    I wonder if the heating furnace was reclaimed out of an aircraft carrier. lolololololol
    I just cant stop laughing.

    What you should be doing when you see something like that is call the police.
    People making illegal drugs use setups like that to vent the foul oder and fumes to and then usually burn the mix so it isnt detected.
