RE: Campgrounds near Denver that do not permit campfires

I don't do camp grounds but I think there may be one up by Barr lake you might check out. The area I boondock in currently does have a ban meaning I'll sleep a little better while up there.

RE: How long of a coax on carry out sat dish

I have 100 ft on a roll that I hook up at the trailer and roll out to where ever the tailgater needs to be. I leave a pigtail sticking out of the center so that I don't have to unroll the whole thing to connect the dish.

RE: window air cond

We have a 5000 BTU window shaker that we use in our 25 ft trailer. I'd want bigger if we were somewhere more humid.

RE: 10000 btu air conditioner

I can cover 600w with my panels during peak sun. The bank alone should handle a few hours.

RE: 10000 btu air conditioner

Almot There is likely a pretty good price difference in the different units. My ES A/C unit was $100 more than the typical and the lowest draw two door mini fridge is $100 more than the next lowest puling just .16a more. Most that look just like it pull more than twice as much because they are not designed for off grid use. They are meant for on grid where the power is plentiful and cheap. Anytime it is built to be efficient it is going to cost you.

RE: 10000 btu air conditioner

This is the unit I am using. It uses 50-65w less than the typical one does. Frigidaire 5000 BTU energy star A/C DB I ran a thread on the initial testing of the A/C in the trailer. It was 95 degrees here in town and stuck back in the bunk window it kept our poorly insulated trailer sitting in the sun down to 81*. Were we to need it outside of the high elevations that we use it, I would skip the 6000 BTU and go straight for the 9000 BTU split. This works for us because it's rarely humid and we only need it in full sun. My three panels are 250w polys. 40-50a at peak and flat and 20-25a mid day when overcast.

RE: 10000 btu air conditioner

DB Were I to get serious and need more cooling than the 5000 BTU window unit I use now, I would go to a mini split for the very reason you pointed out. I can get 9000 BTU of cooling from the same three panels that power that 5000 BTU unit but four panels wouldn't run the next size up window shaker.

RE: 10000 btu air conditioner

ompared to my 5000 BTU window shaker, these are double the watts or close to it. Mine uses as much as the 2500 BTU model here.

RE: Unlimited Verizon 3G $5 a month

I haven't tried one since I have a Sleek. Here is one that was suggested and the price fits the 3 db gain it provides. That gain as well as being outside of the vehicle may make the difference. antenna and adapter If you are only running the 4620 a refurbished, discontinued Sleek 3G is only $64 Sleek 3G The only difference between it and my LTE Sleek is the number of bands it handles. The flashed hotspots light up like Christmas in it and it double the speed at the worse of times. There are higher gain antennas that can be used without a booster. The best results would come from a directional antenna boosted or not. As always I am not connected to or receive anything for these or any product/ service I discuss.

RE: Unlimited Verizon 3G $5 a month

Dutch I really look forward to your report on the new service. I want to but we only use 2 or 3 gigs on the TMO device we have now. Its binge on feature and 5 gigs makes it nearly unlimited for us if we were stuck in a TMO only area. For Me at home T-Mobile LTE is often over loaded so I leave it on 4G hspa. LTE is faster at times but the 4G is always fast enough here. The LTE band I will be interested in while traveling is band 12. The maps say there is coverage in the areas we camp in. Every thing else is 3 or 4G. BTW The one chance I have had to get up to the mountains, Verizon 3G was the winner hands down. It never dropped the signal while the others came and went.

RE: Unlimited Verizon 3G $5 a month

right before the 6 months is up, text him and he will tell you what to do to set up another 6 months on auto pay for $35. He can also apply a $5 card to your account instantly. Great, thanks! No I just have to figure out how to remind myself when the 6 months is up..... it will stop working. lol I put my dates on a old fashion calendar.

RE: Unlimited Verizon 3G $5 a month

I have the 4510 and the 4620 and we live in a very low signal area with a tower 15 blocks from the house. We are shielded from the tower with houses, power lines and warehouses. The tower serves three expressways, large neighborhoods and a few shopping centers, so at rush hour it becomes congested to the point that my TMO hotspot is knocked right off. The Verison 3G slows but is still usable for anything but video streaming. At worse I see .3 down and .6 with a booster. Dutch You are the second person I have heard of recently with a issue. He is a small shop and I know when you ordered he had told me he had just 6 left of the TMO unlimited. Give him a text and see how he is doing.

RE: As Seen On EBAY...

The way things are going I fear we may have need for it up here.

RE: Using 4wd to slow down

I think I would also be worried about the RPM of the engine.
