    Newb here — I need some basic recovery gear and a compressor. Where do I start?

    Don't discount getting a 110V air compressor and in cab voltage inverter (DC to AC).

    I've used mine several times (short periods of use) and other than not behaving well when set to Fahrenheit it has been flawless. Cools rapidly on high then goes into ECO mode

    Do people really take their off-road teardrops through gnarly trails?

    not a teardrop, but a small camp trailer on the Rubicon, no real issues with it really. The vid starts out funky, just wait for it, you will see the trailer going thru one of the sluice boxes. I was new to my SoloShot camera that auto follows a puck i place on my mirror, it got too close to...
