RE: Over weight? Does it bother you?

No worries whatsoever here.....since 2004.

RE: 12v portable fridge/freezer

Thanks all for the replies and suggestions. I figure if the Australians use something, and recommend it, it's good for my uses in spades.

RE: 12v portable fridge/freezer

I have both an Engel 40 qt. and an Edge Star 43 qt. They are about 10 years old and have given me great service working as a refer. or as a freezer. Thanks, that's the kind of reply I'm after.

RE: 12v portable fridge/freezer

I don’t believe the OP is talking about thermoelectric coolers, the type that uses a Peltier device that can either heat or cool. They rarely live up to their specs, and generally will only cool to about 30* below ambient. I believe the OP wants to discuss portable 12v compressor fridge/freezers. :):) Correct.

12v portable fridge/freezer

I'm looking for recommendations for a 12v portable compressor fridge/freezer. Any suggestions, comments, recommendations?

RE: Alternative Generator For our campers

I had problems with much lower power (much longer cooking times) and a rather disturbing growl from the microwave. It sounded to me like the microwave oven was very strained.

RE: Alternative Generator For our campers

I had a big problem with MSW (modified sine wave) inverters and microwave ovens. That is the sole reason I spend the money on a Xantrex pure sine wave inverter....15 years ago.

RE: Alternative Generator For our campers

I notice that generator symply says sine wave , not specifying whether it is pure sine wave or modified sine wave . :h Email (verbatim) from the distributor: Buffalo Tools Christina Torres Mon, Feb 17, 12:47 PM Good Afternoon , Thank you for contacting us regarding your questions on our generators. Our Generators provide Modified sine wave. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to contact me to the information provided below. Thank youfor being a valuied customer hope you have a great rest of your day ?? "What is the difference between a pure sine and modified sine inverter? Both types of inverter will provide power to AC appliances, however Pure Sine is high quality equal to (or better than) the power in your home, Modified sine wave power is a simpler form of power and is adequate for simple electronics, but may damage more complex ones."

RE: Camper Renovation and Capabilities of a 2007 Tundra Double

I can give you my experience having owned two Tundras which have carried the same camper. The Tundra is NOT a half ton truck. A PM would be best.

RE: Raising TC Off Bed

I had to add height to the TC because the bed overhang touches the running lights on my truck cab. I used 2" thick Foamular 250 high density extruded polystyrene. It works perfectly. It also allows me to reach in over the bed rails to utilize for storage (fishing poles, umbrellas, furniture in a bag, etc.). Ditto here but not because of running lights but my newer Tundra had higher bed sides than my older Tundra.

RE: Mopeka Products

Seems like the Mopeka app/sensor is a hit and miss product. Mine has been faulty from the start. New tank, put the sensor on with the grease provided, no condensation on the tank bottom. Just got my tank filled. It still reads 15%. Got time left to return it, I'll go the Trauma route and see how that works. Truma, not Trauma. You're welcome.

RE: Mopeka Products

I think this is better: Dometic LPGC10 LP Gas Checker I went through two of them when I gave up and got the Trauma. The battery cage in the Dometic broke in both. Funny, mine is 2 years old and on the same battery. Works like new down to 19 degrees last Xmas vacation. :) Likewise. Mine keeps working.

RE: Mopeka Products

I use them on my RPod and BBQ. I tried one on my 30lb horizontal propane tank in my Outfitter and had two issues. One is that there was insufficient space between the tank and the bottom of the enclosure. The other issue is that the propane tank enclosure is all metal and the bluetooth signal couldn't get out. I might have to experiment with an external antenna sometime. And they never replied to my questions about that situation.

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

So far, this style of saw has served us well. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81AZD2ItxkL._SL1500_.jpg height=220 width=280 +100. I've done a lot of road rehab with mine.

The USFS, BLM, and state forestry don't go out and clean up roads. It's ok for us to do it as users. We aren't clearcutting or logging. The last thing I want to have happen is to drive some place and have a tree or branch fall across behind me that I cannot remove.

RE: What Portable Propane Gas Grill Do You Use?

https://i.imgur.com/13Nq47T.jpg We use a small table top-uses 1# bottles, think I paid less than $20 from local discount drug store, though several years ago. Folds up pretty compact, easily fits in compartment. This is the same one that I use only in black. Only issue is that in really cold or wind it does not have a pile of heat. But for the price cannot be beat! +1. I've had mine for 15 years. Replaced the grill once. Fits in the TC perfectly. No mess. One suggestion: Don't turn on the propane with the lid on then press the piezo igniter. The lid can go up a few feet when the propane ignites. .....it only happened once in a land far far away.......

RE: Dual pane windows....

I've had two campers with dual pane windows and none failed. Dual panes reduce condensation, reduce outside noise and provide greater temperature comfort. BUT, dual panes add additional weight to the camper. My Dometic windows are plastic. I suspect they actually weigh less than a single pane glass window. They do weigh less. And the Dometic/Seitz dual pane windows help a lot with heat loss. Plus, they have built-in screens/shades and an opening system that is far better than other RV windows I'm aware of. Yes, I own a pop-up with insulated fabric. Yes, there's heat loss. And yes, every little bit of insulation, including dual-pane windows helps keep that heat loss down. Mine have never leaked in 15 years. My 2 cents.

RE: Recommendations for quiet portable generator

I have run EU2000s for hundreds of hours on boats and campers in single and in parallel. As much as I cringe at the price, I like them, their light weight and flexibility. And no matter how much you use it, you'll likely never wear it out. That's a fact. Mine is now 15 years old.
