    Why does solar controller show voltage from panel after moving camper out of the sun?

    Just think of your old trusty solar powered calculator that likely never saw real sunlight and was only ever charged by your classroom/office fluorescent lights. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    front wheel wobble, videos included, need halp

    A pull is caused by either excessive castor or camber but never toe, so even if your tie rods were bad they would have nothing to do with your pull. What you’re showing in the videos is not play in the tie rods, that’s normal, they are a ball and socket designed to do that. If there’s actual...

    Awning suggestions

    May I suggest spending a couple bucks more and going with a piece of aluminum angle, and stainless hardware. Easier to drill, no need to paint and no rust streaks down the side of your lovely trailer. ...Ohhh just noticed now the last post was in August.... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    2015 Ram 3500 CTD - family adventure build

    idaSHO I agree 100% that in cab controls are most convenient.

    Set yourself up with a nice on board air system. 2-3gal tank, maybe a nice Viair or Wolo 100% duty cycle compressor or whatever your preferred flavour. Don’t bother with the switch and gauge in the dash. Keep it simple, just lines to schraeder valves, plumb them separately to a convenient...

    I know, I know... BUT! Just to shine a light on the crazy that is the cost of all this “necessary overland gear” and vehicle mods. Someone with retail cost knowledge should add all this gear up to see (to quote Bob Barker) what “the actual retail price” is for all this gear. Then add on a...
