    Can I control it...sure. Can my wife and 9 year old daughter...well, that's the problem. The only way I can ensure we conserve water is by using those flow restrictors, they seem to think the camper magically produces unlimited water. Nice pictures from your recent trip, thanks for sharing.

    I'm wondering if anyone has found a flow restrictor that works on this faucet? I'd like to reduce the flow to 0.5 GPM. I've used these in the past with great success in our trailer; not sure if there's something similar for this faucet.

    It works fine for us, but we tend to camp in very dry places. I think you'll find a whole lot of debate on outdoor showering and gray water disposal. Personally, we only use a tiny bit of water and biodegradable soap to minimize our environmental impact. On this particular trip to Baja, we...

    I think most of the 2022 models Big Sky ordered come from the factory with a single Molle panel. We have a new CAMP-X dealer in Reno, NV (Zero Declination), they ordered the left side panel for me and installed it, along with their outdoor shower/drop tent, and the upgraded suspension...

    Bahía de los Ángeles, Baja Mexico ... We're loving this setup!

    The weBoost stays attached at all times, the RAM mount is very rugged and specifically designed for this application. I usually put a strap around the molle panel rack and weBoost antenna for safety while traveling. I don't see much need for the Starlink or weBoost when we're driving. We need...

    Rear end complete.... the Starlink dish comes off the telescoping mount very easily, I won't be leaving it up when we're moving. Waxed every nook and cranny of the truck and CAMP-X this weekend, time to go get it dirty in Baja at the end of this week.

    The 10lb bottle is for our outdoor kitchen stuff, we also have a LavaBox portable campfire. For the mounting of the PowerTank, I was able to get 2 holes to line up with the molle panel holes and on the bottom I used a piece of aluminum from behind...maybe I should have called it flat stock.

    It's been kind of quiet here so I though I would share some recent additions. My 2022 CAMP-X didn't have the left side molle panel, so I had it installed last week. I added the two fresh water Rotopax containers (2 Gallons Each) which required 1 RotopaX RX-EXT Pack Mount Extension and 1...

    I completed the inverter install via the REDARC Sensor/Shunt (rated @ 300 amps). I chose the Thor 2000-Watt DC Inverter Kit-2 (THPW2000-KIT2) which comes with 1/0 cables, a fuse, and an On/Off remote switch. The dimension of the unit are 16.92L x 8.5W x 3.34H, which is a tight squeeze, but...

    Received my inverter on Friday, working on wiring it in. Question for those that have added an inverter. There's a white negative (-) 6 AWG wire running from the battery to the REDARC Sensor/Shunt, then another white negative (-) 6 AWG wire running from the Sensor/Shunt to the REDARC manager...

    I didn't move mine from a 5.5' to 6.5', but mine is in a 6.5' bed and they measure about 17".

    Our 100% electric boat won't be able to charge off our truck or CAMP-X. I rely on our Honda EU2200 to charge it overnight. We can usually get about 3-4 days of use (~20 hours) between charges.

    The main power draw items I expect: Occasional use of the microwave. Possibility of charging my eBike. Running the fridge. Re-Charging electronic devices. Running the WeBoost for cellular. Running the Starlink for internet. As I mentioned before, I think we're a little overpowered for the...

    I picked up my Battle Born GC3 Heated battery this week and finally had time to install it today. Tight squeeze, but managed to just fit. 270Ah should be more than enough for what we need. I'm interested in seeing how the REDARC solar system with the single 200W panel does. FedEx stopped...

    Added some LED "puck" lights for ambiance and the ability to change colors for certain situations. Red is great on the eyes when you wake up at night, and warm yellow/orange doesn't attract bugs. $28 for a 6 pack on Amazon ... they take 2 hours to charge fully via USB and run about 15 hours on...

    Like the REDARC being in the box on top of the counter images of under the sink and the under-sink cabinet openings (my 2020 right side is blocked by an outlet and breaker box) and how the shorter wider propane compartment pushes into the undersink area, pics of the front two...
