RE: Revisiting pop-up campers

What's a 14er? 14 mile hike? 14,000+ foot peaks.

RE: Revisiting pop-up campers

Wet bath with shower does not work well in a pop up. Wet bath with shower worked just fine in my Outfitter Apex8. +1. I've never had an issue with mine in 16 years. I don't know why people slam pop-up TCs. Perhaps it's because not all pop-up TCs are the same. Outfitter or Hallmark would be my choices. I've had my Toyota Tundra and Outfitter Apex 8 in some pretty steep rugged places. Nary an issue.

RE: Palomino SS 1251 Pop-Up on 1/2 Ton Pickup

Are you interested in a similar setup and my experience with it? Very similar to KD4UPL's post.....

RE: The Emotions in a TC

This is a great thread. We solved this issue by getting a RPod 177 HRE. The TC isn't going anywhere. We like options and now we have them. ....also in Spokane....

RE: Solar with Lithium Battery

I have 100W on the roof and a portable 100W panel I move around to get max solar. I can't remember the last time I had to use my Honda EU2000i. I don't have a microwave or TV but I do have LED lights, radio, pumps, fans, phone charging, furnace, etc. I have two 100AH SLA batteries and this setup works well for me.

RE: Quieter alternatives for propane furnace in extreme cold

You're going to experience temps WAY below 0 F where you want to go. And a whole lot of other issues will come up other than water. Even starting a generator could be an issue. Where do you live now and what's your experience with winter camping of any type?

RE: Timbrens,airbags!

I sure like my Air Lift Wireless air bag system. Easy to install and use. I recommend it.

RE: SiO2 Batteries

I asked Morningstar, the manufacturer of my MPPT solar controller, about use with LiFePO4 batteries. They gave me programming values for that use. I will likely go with the LiFePO4 batteries because, as you say FWC, the weight savings is killer! I'm very tempted to DIY. Any suggestions on which cells and a BMS? I've heard good things about the Tesla cells.

RE: SiO2 Batteries

No, the cost of a charger is not an issue. I'm just investigating different battery types. I was unaware of the SiO2 batteries. I'll likely go with LiFePO4 batteries because of their reduced weight compared to others.

RE: SiO2 Batteries

I'd like to hear from people who use the SiO2 batteries. Are you happy with them? Charging methods? What kind of current loads do you have? The owner of sanidump uses them and is happy. https://www.sanidumps.com/product-testing-rv-batteries.php Good review, thanks.

RE: SiO2 Batteries

What is your intended use? Boondocking. I have 220W of solar with a MPPT charger. No AC appliances. I have two 100AH deep-cycle AGM batteries now. I am attracted by the LiFePo4 batteries for their reducted weight and current capability but not their need for a special charger. The SiO2 evidently can use a standard charger.

RE: TCs and Covid Vaccinations

I won't waste my time waiting in line for an unproven vaccine with questionable side-effects, kind of like not buying a new car in it's first production year until the kinks are worked out. I'll give it some time to prove itself before I partake. Even with the vaccine, people still have to wear masks and follow the protocols. Wow! With that mindset Covid will be around a long time for some people. x2!

RE: Outfitter's New Molded Fiberglass Body for the Apex 8 Camper

@Geewizard: note the thread dates from 2014. Oops! Thanks joerg.

Brian? Do you mean Brian Ward? I thought he'd sold Outfitter.

RE: It’s been a good run

My two FullRiver DC105-12 batteries are still going strong after 6+ years. One is in the normal battery box and one is under the dinette. They are sealed AGM and will vent only under extreme conditions. I have zero concern that the small amount of hydrogen gas that may be vented will be any danger. The risk from that battery in an "un-vented box" is far less than that of an oncoming cellphone-reading driver.....IMHO.

RE: BINOCULARS

Yup, Geo*Boy, I agree. That's why I bit the bullet and got my Canon 15x50 stabilized binoculars.

RE: BINOCULARS

bighatnohorse, thanks for the reply I am going to that site right now. Ya, good way to spend money, American made. I doubt there's any American-made binoculars for sale. If you know of any, let us know. Wow! Thanks for the prompt. I searched for American Made Binoculars and this is what I came up with: https://binocularsumo.com/reviews/made-in-usa/ Even better, my personal top two choices so far are the same two best in the review. There's a difference between being assembled in USA and made in USA. To me, made in the USA is with ALL parts made in the USA. https://deanoptics.com/best-american-made-binoculars-brands/
