I have one like it called a Powerstar that I bought over 8 years ago for $99.00,I keep 2 spark plugs for it and clean and switch between them after running.Mine is rated at 1200w peak and runs 800w steady.I use it in the boonies mostly on my B.I can go up to 8hrs a tank but mostly 4-6 hours.Mine will run the microwave but not the AC.Once I ruined a starter recoil but found parts here in the US for it.Im pretty happy with it.
I like to boondock a lot so I was surprized to see a 37 ft with a tow come into a place where I never thought it could go.What really freaked me out was he was so off center in a site-I thought "this will never work" and felt superior and then he hit his levelers! I beleive
I had problems with gasahol in my 70s era Blazer here in Utah when it first came out in my area in the mid 70s. I went through rubber parts fuel lines etc and 2 fuel filters from all the rust and particles blowing out.I have not had problems with my B 1990 Xplorer but I will/do try to avoid higher blends.
I have a EZ up with the sides-I ended up using it more than a few times with the sides on but now just use it without the sides because of the time involved.I did like it when I was staying for awhile in one place and was sure of the weather.I have seen a lot of camp hosts who stay put in one place use them.The EZ up by itself has withstood many winds and storms-not so much with the sides on--never lost anything/anypart in a storm though
yes I have seen my unit at home and I have seen it in campgrounds from the overhead but they change the view ( year of sat photo ) every so often-I have found my unit at Quartzsite AZ also-pretty fun to go to old campsites and look for it.
Nice Tyler!-I used to live in Prescott and did a lot of gold panning and camping there I also use to work on those jukeboxes and arcade machines in the Bars you went to on Whiskey row and ran a Amusement Park thats gone now in Prescott Valley--ever going back- contact me I will put you on Gold
DUH-I have been sitting here and reading the forums and reading the winterizing threads when I remembered I had not drained my tanks yet and it has been 20 to 25 degrees the last 4 nights! Im on it and no damage done I love how my B is insulated really well
Yes I have gone to about 8-10 shows and I would go again-I dont like the crowds at the show sometimes but its the outdoor stuff I really like-seems like theres allways something going on there.The closer you get to the Show the harder it is to find a spot and the closer you get the more its like a parking lot but out a ways I have had no problems.I have stayed at the Free sites too Dome Rock is the one I like and Scadden Wash but SW can get crowded around the Show for a day or 2. I allways run into interesting people there
