    Im at the point where I need to figure out just how high my rf plate is going to sit from the very bottom of the tank(cooker). I assume its about the same height as the fire box is that correct? If so how high does the fire box usually sit in relation to the bottom of the tank?  Has anyone allowed a small washer sized space between the rf plate and the top of the fire box to reduce radiant heat from the fire box creating a hot spot in the cooker?  Does anyone know if you have to licence these trailers in Arizona? When this was a welding trailer it was not licenced.  Here is some updated photos-

    Thanks to all that answer--[​IMG]

    az-when I get home, I'll check and see what the distance is from the bottom of the tank to the bottom of the r/f plate. I'm thinking that it's 6 or 7 inches but I'll measure it to make sure.
