    ARB fridge help

    Hello all, I'm in the midst of packing for a couple day excursion and have recently been having issues with my fridge. It seems like the thermostat is way out of whack. When I turn it on, it will appear to be reading correctly and cycle on until it's reached the desired temperature, however...

    I have an ARB that I'm keeping. It was mounted behind the passenger seat in the cab, not in the camper. The dinette does not have any cushions currently. Cheers, West

    Says in the top line. $14,000. I'm not open to trades, but am open to some negotiation. Cheers, West

    Photo organization on the iPad

    If you use Lightroom on your computer at home, check out photosmith for your iPad. I recently used it for a trip to china and was able to upload, sort, tag, label and rate all of my photos from the trip. It has a couple of quirks for sure, but the developer is good about fixing things and...

    Solar Diagnosis Help Please

    I climbed up on the roof yesterday and cleaned them to no avail. I then started sticking my multimeter anywhere I could get contact with wire to figure out if it was the wiring between the panel and the controller or the panels themselves. This also included cutting the wires a few inches from...

    Solar Diagnosis Help Please

    Thanks for the quick reply!! The panels (4, two of one type and two of another) were on the camper when I bought it and have no markings on the tops. Thus i have no idea what size/brand they are. The two sets are routed through separate charge controllers as they're different sizes. The two...

    Solar Diagnosis Help Please

    So I woke up this morning to the little red light on my fridge blinking angrily and the temperature reading a couple degrees above where it should be. After coffee, I started poking around my battery compartment and found that my battery bank was waaay low... Hmmm. I have been conscious of where...

    Tablet for photo editing?

    Baja Mobile Dome

    I just came across this from a river-oriented forum. It seems like it could be a sweet all-weather base-camp unit. Built by Jacks Plastic Welding from NM for a guy trying to push the idea to the Mexican govt for SAR purposes, with the potential to also sell to US SAR teams. Looks like it could...

    Kites-Anyone take one/some camping?

    I have a kite that lives in my rig full time. It's just a small 1.2 meter trainer, but super fun to fly around. It's a great way to pass a bit of time if I'm waiting for someone/something (shop work) and have a space (large parking lot) with some wind. Also just something fun and extremely...
