    I didn't make it up sequoia this weekend but did test the weboost drive reach on Kitchen Creek rd at Mount Laguna. It went from zero service to a signal usable for text and email(slow). Used both the stock antenna and the trucker, antennas didn't have noticeable differences in service. Used...

    Iridium ZOLEO

    It's a long story, but the short of it is that older inreach devices will still transmit SOS but that's it. Garmin gave me no notice whatsoever at the time, and there was nothing posted on their website about it.

    Dry Flush Toilet??

    I've got one in my fwc, I love it! fyi, adding a couple scoops of sawdust to each flush helps with long term odor and splash during the flush. it's expensive per use, if you want it to be completely odor free, saw dust, flush wipes and two flushes per use seem to be the key.

    Topper EZ lift thoughts?

    I haven't checked the voltage at the regulator, but I do believe it is a voltage drop from the wire harness, 2 actuators get their own wire from the switch and the other two essentially share a wire. It's an obvious design flaw, eventually when I get around to it I'll replace the entire harness...
