    How to clean the top of an awning

    It is the second season that I've been using my Alu-Cab Shadow Awning and I love it. Certainly the best money I've spent on my rig (after the RTT). While putting it away this morning I noticed that it is beginning to accumulate a bit of tree sap and other sticky crap on the top of the awning. I...

    This would be cool for a fridge I was looking around for a drawer-type fridge and found this. Easy access to beer....more space for when actually cooking. It's a good idea and I wish a big-brand company would make something similar. When is someone...

    Question about light weight spare on JK

    I don't have a matching spare on my 2-door JK. It's the same size, but doesn't match. The issue is that my main tires are north of $300.00 a pop, and I just can't make myself buy another one for a spare. I don't include my spare into rotation, and every matching spare tire I've ever bought winds...

    This one is kinda cool The bed box might be pretty cool. Bear resistant. The external boxes have internal access. The space in the front of the box might be big enough to rig up some kind of toilet. Might be room for a...

    Hot water in a Chaser !!!!????

    I have a 2012 Adventure Trailers Chaser that hasn't been used much in the two years we've been together. Last Friday I took 'er out and was amazed at how well that trailer follows my Jeep. That suspension is awesome. So, I've decided that I need hot water and a sink in the Chaser. It has a 10...

    Best grill gloves

    I've been using the "Ove-Glove" for a couple of seasons now and have lost one. I'm in the market for a new pair. One thing I didn't like about the cloth Ove-Glove is that if you spill bacon grease or boiling water on the glove it goes right through the weave and burns the holy hell out of you...

    Small chimney start for charcoal

    I'm looking for a small, foldable, quality charcoal chimney for a Snow Peak Single BBQ Box. In my experience it only needs 10 - 14 briquettes to fill it up. The inexpensive chimney I bought from Amazon is very hard to fold/unfold due to warping. It needs to be small enough to fit inside the SP...

This way I can can have a grill, burner, and oven (using a Coleman folding oven) in one chuck box. I swear I've seen single-burner Partners before on...

    Who has a Trailgater for JK? I need a measurement please!!!!!

    Howdy! I'm thinking about picking up a Trailgrater for my '07 JK...but I have a gas shock installed. It looks like mounting plate for a Trailgater will just miss the shock mount, but the table portion is higher than the mounting plate and will be in front of my gas shock when it's closed. Can...

    Stow-able dog bed/cot for spoiled camp pooch

    Hi, I have a 20 lbs. dog and she doesn't like to lay in the dirt. Since she sleeps in the RTT with me, I don't particularly want her to lie in the dirt either. In the past I've hauled around a human camp chair for her to curl up in at camp (usually in her sleeping bag) and have decided that I...

    Mounting a Baroud to Front Runner Slimline II

    Hi Yall, I am looking for James Baroud mounting brackets that are 3.5 inches wide (between the threaded posts). I see that Front Runner now sells them, but a set of four for $100.00 is just ridiculous. Yes, the Front Runner kit has a few different adapters for Autohome/Baroud and some height...

    Variable line voltage disconnects - which one?

    I've been using a National Luna Power pack for a couple of years in my JK. However, the voltage disconnect is not variable and the unit is very big. Also, I have a two-bank NOCO charger in the rig. When I plug into shore power at home for battery maintenance I have to manually turn off the power...

    Let's talk about ASME propane tank installations (vans)

    Hi, I'm at the point with my van build where an ASME propane tank is needed. I've found a 10 x 42 inch ASME tank from a salvage Ford 1-ton motorhome (for $150.00) and it will fit in the space I have. The math leads me to expect that this tank will be hold about 10 gallons and give me around 8...
