    ARB Zero fridge low voltage cutoff

    50% max depth of discharge for lead acid/agm batteries, which equates to 12.3V or so.

    ARB Zero fridge low voltage cutoff

    The Low setting doesn’t disengage until 10.1V, there would be no point in completely disabling it because at that point the voltage isn’t high enough to safely run the electronics... the fridge isn’t protecting your battery, it’s protecting itself. You really shouldn’t run your aux battery that...

    The Dometic CFX3 Mega Thread

    You realize that, in your case, you could just size the on-board charger appropriately to maintain the battery and run the fridge, and just leave the fridge on DC?

    The Dometic CFX3 Mega Thread

    @Dometic - Thought I'd share a little positive feedback... I've had my 55IM for a couple weeks now and it's been running perfectly, as expected. The new protective cover just came in and I've gotta say I am really impressed with the new design, it's a much better and more flexible solution than...

    The Dometic CFX3 Mega Thread

    Thank you! I reached out to Mobtown Offroad, they were incredibly fast to respond after hours and I got their last 55IM. I cancelled the Engel order. “40 year fridge” is great and all but the more research I did, I decided that for the way I will use it I’d prefer the fast chilling capability...

    The Dometic CFX3 Mega Thread

    Hey @Dometic, curious if you guys have any idea when stock on the CFX3 line should be replenished? I just sold a CFX3 75DZ to downsize to a 35 or 45, only to find out they're backordered everywhere. :-( --Thanks!

    RTT Bed Rack That Allows Rolling Hard Tonneau Cover?

    Check out dethloffmfg.com’s rack if you’re going with a Dodge, compatible with rambox and tonneau cover, and looks much better IMO.

    GMRS antenna recomendations

    Glad you brought this up. I just got a MXT275 too, it will be in addition to my primary 2M/70CM rig with a Larsen NMO2/70 just so I can be legal and free up my ham. It doesn't need to be top performance for me, so I am going to order the Larsen Mirage so I have a low profile option when needed...

    Pre-Order Your MXT275 Today!

    Great looking form factor and I will be ordering one, but I am disappointed to see a new release still not support the 2017 FCC changes to shared FRS/GMRS (0.5W) channels 8-14, am I misunderstanding some requirement that makes these mobiles ineligible for those channels? I assume these are a...

    Topper or Bed Rack for RTT?

    I had my hard shell RTT mounted on top of a fiberglass shell and hated it. I could definitely feel the weight in body roll, sway, and tippy-ness in off camber situations on my 3/4 ton. The truck was also too tall for garages, drive-thru's, branches, etc and it was annoying to climb in and out...

    Official Test Results: Five Ways to Heat a Tent

    Some explanation and tips here: https://www.bournesenergy.com/news/propane-in-cold-weather-800937483 I wonder if you could circulate the warm return air around the propane tank via a small enclosure? [EDIT] I was originally thinking a propane box with two flanges on it, in-line with the return...

    Official Test Results: Five Ways to Heat a Tent

    Yes, 1kWh = 3412BTU/hr. So at the rated 2.1kW (7165BTU) input, the heater should last 12.7 hours on 1Gal with continuous duty. An easier way to remember that: It should run for ~3 hours per 1lb propane. Keep in mind that most places only fill your tank to 75-80% capacity though, pay attention...
