    Anyone familiar with ComeUp DV-6s winch

    Haven't been able to find much info on this winch: http://www.comeupwinch.com/mobile/_eng/pro/detail.php?pid=293&cid=128&f=102#.X4eAxS0ZN24 "Only" 6k pull single line, but that's plenty for my vehicle (5k GVWR) and comes with a 2" receiver mounting already. Haven't heard about ComeUp before...

    Not sure I understand the question. Mount it to the roof and it should be solid enough, no? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Smittybilt Scout Trailer Reviews?

    I was wondering about how annoying it would be to deal with the small pin for max coupler. Considering going to a pintle setup. Much cheaper, but I'm worried about the offroad noise.

    DIY Discada "Skottle" Cooker $65.00

    Howdy everyone. Been using this mod for a year or so now, blowing everyone away with surface area and compactness. The only shortcoming is lack of a windscreen. Has anyone come up with a way to keep some of the heat in and protect from gusts of wind? Looking to add a windscreen. Sent from...

    New 270 Awning available.

    $750 for 3 walls? That doubles the cost of the awning. I don’t know what setup is like but considering for late season PNW camping Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ovs sells walls for their 270. Quite expensive for what it is though. They use zippers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ovs nomadic. I can’t get it super tight for some reason. They don’t recommend leaving it without poles longer than setup, but poles take only a second to setup since they are attached to the brackets. If we are only stopping for a bit I wouldn’t hesitate to go poleless provided thrrrs no wind...

    Mag daddy looks super cool. I tried these eBoot 100 Pieces Adhesive Cable... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HR9VS4I?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share and most of the failed. I’ll try one more time, sanding down the spot a bit as ebrabaek suggested. Here’s my latest Frankenstein creation. Trying to add...

    How do you guys ensure that wiring stays attached to trailer walls? Is tape sufficient or is there a better option? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Smittybilt Scout Trailer Reviews?

    Finally figured out a more permanent solution for power. 105ah lifepo4 custom battery in the tongue box (orange toolbox, so I can move it between vehicles) Battery box connects via anderson connector to a fuse box inside the genny compartment. Next step is some switches and lights. What have...

    solar charge controller as a dc-dc charger?

    Bingo. I have a 120v AC -19v dc at 5A laptop power supply. I dont think it's kosher to connect it directly to the battery because it's unlikely to know the LiFePO4 profile.

    solar charge controller as a dc-dc charger?

    Ahh, I see what you're saying. The storage charging is something I have not figured out. I have no need to maintain 100% state of charge, unless that is somehow not good for the cells. I intend to manually charge the pack before I leave on a trip, then stick the pack in storage when we get home...

    solar charge controller as a dc-dc charger?

    It's a 105Ah LiFePO4 system. Max charge is 1C. It's basically a portable battery that either goes in my truck, or in the trailer. Very low draw (12v fridge, some led lights, phone recharging). The laptop charger is a 120v AC charger, but outputs 19v at 5amps. @Verkstad, it is true that from...
