I was most annoyed when she chewed off one of the cheviot wheel caps. I can only imagine what will happen if she starts 'protecting' the car against itself ............

I hear dog tastes a little like chicken...........

I reckon the insulated containers might be better for keeping out condensation, having noticed the difference they would be might first choice

 

As for criminals who break into someones home I hope they get the old butter around the ringhole treatment from a lifer who hasn't seen a woman in 20 years

container and it was rusted up something
shocking.and it was in perfect condition
prior to being stored..

We need a law like in Asia.one hand or both

(At least some) shipping containers are airtight aren't they?

 

I always wanted to try evacuating the air out of one, not sure how big of a vacuum pump you'd need, or how long it would take, or how often the pump would need to run to maintain the internal pressure, but that should get rid of the condensation problem and no oxygen = no rust, no rodents, no spiders, no worries!

 

You would have to make sure all your engine/gearbox/diff breathers are open otherwise you may get oil leaks, and with all the sealed systems like cooling/brakes/aircon it would increase any internal pressure by 1 bar (14 psi) but that shouldn't be a problem?

 

Plus I reckon it would be virtually impossible to open the doors without first re-pressurising, and you could have a simple pressure switch and alarm speaker that not only let you know if there are any leaks, but would also double as an intrusion alarm.

I wouldn't try to create a vacum inside a shipping container, vacum pumps are expensive they wil have to run almost continuously to do that and the container isn't designed to take that type of stress.

 

If you did succeed in getting a vacuum inside then you would have 14.7 PSI of air pressure pushing in on every square inch of the container, there is a lot of square inches with a 20 ft long container so multiply surface area in square inches by 14.7 lbs to get an idea of the force it would create trying to crush the container.

If you could only get half a vacuum around 14 inches of mercury then multiply total square inches by 7lbs.

 

I would only get refrigerated containers that no longer work they're already insulated ,much cooler in summer having been in both that were side by side the difference is huge.

 

A small airconditioner would be the go to dehumidify, it could be connected to a hygrometer to turn on and off when humidity reaches  certain levels, the temperature would be irrelevant, since the air volume is small it wouldn't need to be on for very long to take all the moisture out of the air.
