    Poll about heaters at high altitude

    I already know which heater I want, that's not the question. Please think of this thread as real life data collection rather than advice collection. The threads asking for advice get derailed quickly. I would prefer to hear about people's actual experiences, know some context about their setup...

    Fridge Upgrade Recommendation - Cirrus 820

    I've seen lots of people with those big Vitrifrigos and they seem to like them so I'm planning to put one in my build but don't yet have personal experience with them. I did buy a secondhand Dometic for my campervan in Australia and used it for over a year with no problems. They really love...

    Poll about heaters at high altitude

    Hi all, I know this topic has been discussed ad nauseam in this forum and I've gone through old threads like Parking heaters at altitude and What is the BEST....High Altitude Solution for Heating? etc. but I'm not looking to rehash the same discussions. I'm only trying to decide between getting...

    1120 AF Build in Norway

    Should be fine; I looked into the Sikaflex stuff and it is way stronger than any glue ought to be lol. I think I've also seen other builds where they didn't bond it to the walls at all and seem to have just relied on the tight fit to keep it in place which would worry me.

    Ah, nice. Do you know if the aluminum extrusion frame will be glued to the wall or just made to fit so snugly it doesn't go anywhere? We're planning on doing something similar but will prob do it ourselves.

    Looking sooo fab! Curious on the water tank -- are AV going to secure this for you inside the box before the truck leaves their shop and if so now?

    MB Truck vs Unimog

    Any particular reason you prefer more fans and vents over an AC you already had installed?

    We watched a ton of videos about recirculating showers in RVs and I think cleaning the filters can be every couple of weeks and replacing them every few months? But those are full time recirculating showers meaning they're dealing with soap and shampoo and whatnot which ours won't have to do, so...

    Meertruck 1124AF

    Heard from AV last month that they should be able to get our truck in the workshop and build our box Oct-Dec. In the meantime, we've been planning out our plumbing. This is the part-time-recirculating shower part of it: The idea is for all the soap and grime to go away into the grey tank...

    Dedicated Starlink and mobile 4/5G thread

    RIP to all the camper boat folks who were waiting for Starlink maritime. $10k setup and $5k/month. ☠ Really hope Starlink for RVs in motion are not gonna go that route...

    Yeah I'm not in any rush, we'll be able to use our current ones for years. But eventually will have to replace them and lithium could be the way to go. Ours are currently outside but may need to get moved around, we'll see.

    1120 AF Build in Norway

    Hmm, we'll have to do some calculations and see if 100A will suffice for us. I have no idea yet how complicated/expensive it would be to add a second one, heh. Thanks for the lithium starter battery idea, very interesting. Mine were just replaced two mechanics ago but would be good to know how...

    Random question but I saw an electrical diagram from last year on pg 16 saying you'll probably need a 2nd alternator. Did you ever decide to get one and if so, which one?

    It's a radiation safety thing. If I understand correctly they just have to install it somewhere where the dish won't ever be pointing at anyone. Seems like most DIYers would do the right thing anyway, unless they have a rooftop deck where they stand in the way of the dish or something.
