    Primus fuel bottle problem?

    I found this online while looking around for white gas fuel storage options. It looks pretty serious, but I wouldn't throw them out with the bathwater over it. http://www.fs.fed.us/fire/av_safety/promotion/Technical_Bulletins/2003-02.pdf

    Color coded wiring

    I'm still in the process of rewiring the camper, and I'm wondering if there is a recognized color code for primary wire. I'm going to be running wires for the furnace, lighting, refrigerator, USB charge plugs and 12V cigar plugs. I've also found some nice quality marine battery cable in 4 AWG...

    Anderson connectors for camper electrical?

    I'm going to rewire my camper this winter and I'm wondering if you all think that an Anderson plug would be appropriate for use in connecting the camper to the truck (electrically speaking). I intend to run 6-4 gauge stranded wire from the battery to the bed, and use the plug to attach the...

    Helton heater install

    I bought my Helton HE2 from Kurt back in May and used it many times on my excursion to SW Utah later in the month, and it's brilliant. I used a cheap RV water pump to power it, but wanted a more permanent install. Here's how I did it: First, I needed a fuse holder, switch, pump and pressure...

    Surge protector for Engel fridge?

    I'll be ordering an Engel MT45 next week for my camper, but I'm a little spooked after reading the (admittedly few) comments about power supplies having trouble. Edit: After rereading the previous sentence, I realized that it's a bit vague. What I'm referring to is the power supply or circuit...

    Kirkham's awning

    http://www.kirkhams.com/nylon-tents-shades/kirkhams-auto-canopy/ Does anyone here have any experience with this? I'm pretty tempted, but after reading Evldave's thread, I'm more tempted to build my own.

    Ammeter and shunt questions

    I'll be installing a bigger (in amps, from about 45 to 130) alternator on my truck soon, and I have a question regarding the use of the ammeter in the truck. I intend to remove all of the present charging system and start new, with 4 gauge cables throughout. I'd like to keep the present ammeter...

    Oil filter storage

    It just occurred to me that I could share my method of spare oil filter storage. It doesn't work for every size, but I've used one pound-ish coffee cans, well cleaned, to keep oil filters dry and dust free for years. It works perfect for Wix 51515 sized (Ford FL1A) filters, and many others.

    Ammo can storage dividers

    Thought I ought to post this up. I've been using a set for ten years now to store spare fuses, pipe fittings and crimp on wire connectors. The can is heavy, but unmanageable. http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ZAA074-1.html

    Got back from SE Utah late last night. Saw Monument Valley, LOTS of wall art and ruins, including the Wolfman panel, Big Bob, The Hobbs wash ruin, Snake in mouth, the Doll house, and more. Seventeen hundred miles, lots of camping, lots of great times. Lots of sunburn, too. Pics later. Frank

    Propane Chest Fridge?

    Yup, I searched. Seems like I remember a propane fired chest fridge a few years ago. I've found one, but it's pretty small; I'd like one in the 50-60 quart range. Ring a bell to anyone? I haven't ruled out a 12V unit with the Danfoss compressor, but with the furnace, my CPAP machine and lights...

    Anotheruse for latex/nitrile gloves

    When I'm cutting up meat while camping, I use the same nitrile gloves to keep the meat off my hands that I use for wrenching on the truck. that way, I don't need to use as much water to wash my hands when I'm done. They're especially nice for shaping burger meat.
