    Gladiator XMT

    Not a Gladiator fan (it is too big), but for the military, it is almost a perfect fit - stock.

    How can I restore this massive cargo box to it's former glory?

    Cheap possible solution. Hair dryer to heat up and remove the Velcro, then Goof Off to remove the glue. $5 Test goof off on a hidden part to make sure it doesn't remove the coating as well. If it does, you can polish the glue off...

    Trailer tongue weight distribution

    LOL! The pictures are not my trailer, I pulled those pictures from the internet to show as an example. But thanks for the input.

    Trailer tongue weight distribution

    The OP has responded yet, but he states the trailer isn't loaded, and it isn't hitched. A well designed trailer will be tongue heavy before they are loaded, and we also don't know what his physical ability is. I'm getting to an age where getting a trolley may help me from hurting myself.

    Trailer tongue weight distribution

    Getting back to the OP, the issue isn't on-road hauling, it is unhitched moving, and one simple device can solve this. A Trailer Dolly.... There are many different variations of this, ranging from $50 to over $1K for an electric powered version.

    50 Cal Ammo Can Power supply

    Any number of things, it is a proof of concept to for a modular set of batteries and controllers I want to build for my trailer, storms, and traveling. I have it set up to run campsite lights on my Jeep (going to set up lights on the Taco to do the same), also can charge devices (including...

    50 Cal Ammo Can Power supply

    Been using Deans plugs for many years for hobbies. SAE is automotive, and I can get a panel mounted plugs. My air pump, solar panels (back feed), and LED camp lights are all using SAE. If needed, I can use it to charge my trailer battery via the solar panel controller.

    50 Cal Ammo Can Power supply

    OMG, I just realized my battery diagram is WRONG... It is 4 serial 6 parallel... Face palm... That way I was only converting the voltage down to 14.1 for the max voltage in a 12V system. The split into 2 primary batteries started with flexibility (like multi-battery systems in RVs), and it is...

    50 Cal Ammo Can Power supply

    4 reasons... 1 - components - 44.4V would over power the compact low cost buck converters (20A max) I could find, and I wanted as much "pass thru" voltage/amperage as feasible, with the hope it would keep heat down as much as possible by reducing resistance in the conversion process, thus...

    50 Cal Ammo Can Power supply

    I built this last year, and been too lazy to post it, but here goes. This is a very simple 48 18650 cell Li-Ion battery bank / power supply, but it isn't intended for high amp load, nor did I add an inverter. It is purely for 12V DC devices with a max of 20A draw. I didn't add any cooling...

    Exposed storage for...

    Here are the cheap solutions I came up with: I used a bicycle saddle basket and mounted it to the top of my ammo can storage, then used and old cargo net mounted on the spare tire for the wheel chocks.

    Fleetwood Neon Cheap modifications and tricks (expensive mods too)

    NEW BIG WHEELS and tires for less than $200 for all 3!!! I just ran with 15" trailer wheels and tires, but found one with a little bit more tread to give it better off road traction. I had to raise the fenders, and that meant cutting the metal brace tabs on the frame. Since I don't plan on...

    Fleetwood Neon Cheap modifications and tricks (expensive mods too)

    Gas tank mounting, I used some left over bolts from my crutches and a leftover piece 3/8" threaded rod to bend and mount an 11# gas bottle. Used the existing holes on the tank and drilled 3 new ones on the batter bars, I can add a second tank if needed. Then caped it with a clear left over...
