    Does size matter to you?

None of our plumbing is below the frame except the black/grey connector that...

    12 V Fridge/Freezer

    18qt is as small as you can go with a 12v compressor fridge/freezer which will set you back about 5-6 Benjamin's! They draw very little ah but you would need at minimum group 27/31 and 100 watts of solar to run it. I recommend if you go this route just get a cheap Costway sold on Amazon and not...

    Lithium Batteries

    If they have a good BMS installed you can draw these batteries down to 10% with no damage and they actually like this. I have a 125 ah Torque 12v battery that has a internal BMS and it is a drop in battery. It actually has a top ah charge of 136 after charge is complete. I have 750 watts of 24v...

    Running A/C on Battery

    WOW Byn2ools I think you stepped on the cats tail. LOL You are exactly right BikeNFish. There are bunches of folks doing this now on larger class A and 5th wheels as solar has come leaps and bounds in the past 10 years. One primary ingredient is a 100 amp MPPT solar charge controller for...

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news SuperYooper but the OnStar WiFi Hotspot is not OnStar. OnStar equipment provides a WiFi Hotspot possibly proprietary to AT&T similar to a smart phone only it has a small booster. It's like any of the Cell boosters requiring at least 1 bar of reception from a...

    Roy, Dan is somewhat correct when only a cell connection is available as you can get higher hotspot speeds by requesting it but that will cost you more $ monthly and the standard is 25 Mbps on 4g with 5g providing you are able to get 5g requiring a 5g phone you will get as a minimum up to 150...

    Roy I have a few questions before I can assist with this. 1. What make model is the router as it will make a difference. 2. What is the distance to the PUP. 3. Internet speed in the house to the tablet. 4. How many devices are on and connected to the WIFI at any given time. I have been down this...

    so Thanksgiving camping must not be as popular as I imagined!

    We actually left Thanksgiving morning headed for Lost Dutchman SP I-40 was snow-packed and icy until just west of Grants. We arrived at LDSP without incident. That evening we had 67 mph gusts that rocked the camper so bad at times we didn't get much sleep not to mention the 6 tents that where in...

    Cellphone antenna

    I us a 18' pool cleaner pole $25 will get you another 2+ bars. You also need to know where the cell tower is as you have a directional antenna that needs to be adjusted for maximum reception.
