    Legal vs illegal radios

    But is that the point?!? Sadly, if enough people used that reasoning to use a non-type accepted radio, we will ALL lose the use of the band. Yes, there are more important things that government should focus enforcement efforts towards but that doesn’t mean it’s legal, that there are no good...

    Question about FRP bonding method

    My understanding is that one of the key benefits of the VHB is that is allows the appropriate gap/spacing for the Sikaflez - way cleaner and easier than using washers which is also often recommended. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Ford Transit chassis cab DIY composite camper

    Yes, you can make an adjustment with Forscan by changing the wheel diameter but not enough to address the difference. I’m just living with a 10% difference and do mental math when it’s essential. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Is it legal to mount a small 5 lb propane tank horizontally on one's roof rack?

    Or maybe it CAN be perfectly safe unless overfilled (which routinely happens as the operators are often poorly trained and equipment is often poorly calibrated to prevent overfilling) and/or the cylinder’s temperature is raised significantly because of ambient temperature or sitting in the sun...

    Is it legal to mount a small 5 lb propane tank horizontally on one's roof rack?

    I did read your post (as I assumed you read mine …) - I don’t want to get in a pissing contest. It’s not because you can store a vertical cylinder on its side and be “fine” that it is safe (or legal). It’s also not because one can sleep in their house 1000 nights without incident that they...

    Is it legal to mount a small 5 lb propane tank horizontally on one's roof rack?

    While you could argue that they could, it is not the way the cylinders were designed/engineered (and therefore not the way the cylinder was designed to operate safely) and generally, not in compliance with the appropriate regulations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Is it legal to mount a small 5 lb propane tank horizontally on one's roof rack?

    Yes, that is exactly the type of tank you should be using if you are going to store it “on its side”. The problem is the price you have to pay for this tank, for a tank that will have to be requalified at a cost) in less than ten years, not to mention the challenges you will have it getting it...

    Dash Cam/Truck mounted cameras

    I use an Axis F44 camera system, primarily for security. Two cameras mounted on the sides, one to the rear and one mounted as a dash cam. It’s not cheap but works extremely well, can be triggered by motion and are remotely accessible over a network connection. To view either live footage or...

    Is it legal to mount a small 5 lb propane tank horizontally on one's roof rack?

    For what it’s worth, I was a Federal Dangerous Goods guy for over a decade and I doubt you will get a solid answer from a Canadian or US DOT guy because in addition to the Federal requirements which may not apply to “us” because we aren’t transporting “for hire”, most of the requirements are...

    Is it legal to mount a small 5 lb propane tank horizontally on one's roof rack?

    If by horizontally, you mean on its side, the legality will vary a great deal between “jurisdiction”, which can be at the state or province level in some cases, or county or town level for others. It will be really hard for you to get the legality answer. The real answer is whether it’s safe or...

    Is there an "ultimate" tablet for Gaia/GPS?

    I use two RAM Mounts for my iPad Pro 12.9” in my rig - I use an X-Grip mount to hold the iPad when I use it as a TV/media player or using the iPad for planning, etc. but to hold the iPad while in motion/on the go, I use a RAM Roll-in mount specifically for the iPad Pro because it can hold it...

    Black Series fire hazard

    Aside from the potentially very serious risk you raise that the community should be made aware of, I was also struck by how ironic it was for “site staff” from the other forum to be taking what they feel was appropriate action for a post, that was among other things, made by someone anonymously...
