    Thermal or standard fuse for hard-wired fridge power?

    You're partially correct: the fuse also protects the fridge's electronics in the event of reversed polarity. I've hardwired my fridge (MT-43) and installed the glass fuse using an inexpensive fuse holder like this: Cheap, easy...

    Iris Weathertight storage containers

    I bought one of these at Sportsman's Warehouse/Casper several years ago, and another at Cabela's in Grand Junction two years ago. Certainly not as HD as a Hardigg case, but mine have served me very well, and live under the bed platform in my camper. One holds "dirty" stuff, including spare truck...

    10 liter NATO fuel cans - anybody use 'em?

    I have a couple of these, I use them for fueling my two stroke engines with fuel/oil mix. I rarely need more than a couple gallons in a month and it makes better sense to me than mixing a full 5 gallons or dedicating a 5 gallon can to a fuel I use much less frequently. I'll be buying a couple 5l...

    How Do I Clean Scepter MFC?

    A couple pounds of playground sand and enough water to make a slurry, shake shake shake, then a thorough rinse. If it still isn't out, use peagravel.

    Suspension Airbag Durability?

    I've had a set of Firestone bags on my 1984 Ford F150 for nearly twenty years and well over a hundred thousand miles with no problems except the cheap air brake fittings and lines that came with them. Maybe a year after I installed them, I replaced the lines and fittings and hoses with barb...

    Torque Wrenches- Massive price spectrum, what do I actually need?

    If you're not up to calibrating it yourself, get cozy with your local engine remanufacturing facility, Stewart & Stevenson, or Caterpillar. All three will have someone on site who can do it, often for free if you'll spend the time to get to know the person who does it. I have an antique Snap On...

    Smooth leather desert boots - recommendations?

    I had a pair of these for a little over a year now, and I'm delighted. Looking through the reviews, I nearly didn't buy them for all the whining about the footbed (added a Spenco insole) weight, and the European style tongue. Other than needing to...

    Water cans

    I've cleaned plastic cans of all sorts with soap and water for years, followed by a little lemon juice, let it sit for a couple hours, and then a good rinse.

    Modified Pickup Toolbox

    I bought a Knaack box that fit inside the bed sides for years. It was very handy for camping-I could fit my gear and mattress in it and it kept everything dry and dust free. I sold it many years ago when I started buying slide in campers.

    Engel vs ARB fridge pros and cons

    I've had an Engel 43q for nearly a year with no issues. I don't miss having an accurate thermometer as I bought a high quality temp gauge locally. Engel's lid hinge lock, slide lock, slide lock feet and MPAN posi lock socket are all made of cheap feeling plastic: my hinge lock came in the...

    Sky light question

    I'll suggest a vent specifically made for RV's so you have a chance of buying a replacement lid if it breaks. Nice additions, BTW.
