5 days with my AGMs with solar charging
Really on the hunt for a trailer for my upcoming retirement, this one is on the list. Any chance you could give an up-date as to how you are liking it and anything you would change or problems you have had? Two Aussie companies are on the top of the list but the other is a pop up hard side. Thanks
It's interesting that the muffler/silencer from your Espar heater (kit?) does not seem to have a drainage hole. That hole is preset on mufflers that come with all Chinese diesel heaters, which are (claimed to be) clones of the Planar/Espar design. I just looked up some photos of the Planar kits and their mufflers are also lacking the drainage hole. I haven't noticed this difference before. I don't doubt that the Planar and Espar units are both of higher quality than the myriad of clones, so it's interesting that their designs do not incorporate the drainage hole. Just an observation.
I was in the middle of Colorado two weeks ago and the temps got down below freezing. We were at about 9000 feet

The Espar D2L (High Altitude) Heater I installed worked great and kept me nice and toasty. It sipped fuel and was very quiet.
We used this remote site as basecamp for a Triple Mountain Pass Run Italian Creek, Pearl and Taylor. Last part of Taylor was 1/4 mile of a big river bed driving across big boulders

I have used this Australian Hitch-Ezy coupler for two seasons now and am very happy with it. Much easier to line up truck with rear camera and does not require the accuracy of the Trgg Hitch with a pin it replaced. Lots of slop. Yes I cleaned up the cables on back before driving

There was a discussion in another thread on cold weather insulation, so wanted to post pictures on the hoses and the 12V membrane heaters on the sides of the tanks. I did not turn the membrane heaters on, I guess maybe that would have been the conservative thing to do. I have camped down into the 20's and have turned them on then. I have driven over Vail pass in the teens, but did not as did not expect to be below freezing that long and movement I figured would keep things good
