    Southern California dispersed camping suggestions

    Anzo-Borrogo. I lived in Escondido for a few years while I was stationed at Naval Base SD and I camped there many nights to get away from the city. Some great trails in that area too. Don't forget to stop for one of "Mom's" Apple Pies on your way there. I actually have a book that lists all the...

    Ambulance batteries

    I wanted to get mine in quick so I grab a tape measure and ran to Autozone. I bought the 2 largest deep cycle batteries that would fit in the house battery tray. I think they are 950CCA. When I have them switched on and turn the engine over to start, the starter sounds almost like a turbine it...

    Pics of your Ambulance. Post Up!

    Ya, I found that thread and posted the info in it too. I believe the Sleep Well Arctic 1000 is the same as the Oblo as far as output and power requirements, but it isn't a roof mounted system. I believe it's 3 separate pieces, The Power Pack, heat exchanger and condenser are all mounted...

    WTB Ambulance - Converted or not

    Here is their website. I had them give me a quote last year. I don't remember the actual quote, but the kits are under 4x4 parts tab. The kits are for regular vans. Your ambulance will be a little more because the standard springs won't work in the heavier...

    Finally a real 12v air conditioner? - Indel Sleeping Well Cube

    Have you Guys looked into the Sleep Well Systems? The are no idle semi truck systems. They run on D/C, but they actually come with their own battery pack that includes a protection system for your vehicle batteries. They claim to provide up to 10 hours of cooling on the battery pack and the...

    Pics of your Ambulance. Post Up!

    This is one of the systems I like the most. I haven't looked into pricing yet, but if my math is right the Sleeping Well Oblo will have a max draw of 348W and a minimum of 180W. Three decent sided solar panels can handle that with a little to spare.

    Pics of your Ambulance. Post Up!

    Well, Not much happened in the last 10 months, really. I noticed after getting it home and doing through it, that there were no house batteries and now inverter/charger. I added a Harbor freight power converter and two car batteries for now. I had to remove the light bar and black out all the...

    Mission Dawn Patrol

    What part of San Diego you going to be operating out of? I did 4 years there, retired from the military. I lived in Escondido and worked at the Navy Base in Downtown San Diego. There's a lot of good trails in the area. Anzio Borrego is some good off road and camping there.

    Engine light question

    Tried clearing, didn't change anything (though if it's wrong type of reader, it probably won't do the reset either.) batteries new. Guess I'll swing by auto store and see if they have a better reader.

    Engine light question

    Just picked up a 2000 E-350 7.3l diesel. It has a check engine light. Hooked up the OBDII reader, but it shows no codes. Any idea what could be going on?
