    Question for Subaru owners

    My daughter is looking to buy a 2017 Outback and we live on the edge of the desert outside of Phoenix. We have all kinds of desert creatures by our house that love to chew on wires on cars. We had a lot of problems with a VW (had to get it towed three times because it wouldn’t start). VW used...

    Forget Overlanding!

    Glamping is where it’s at. Adding a Snomaster fridge/freezer to the back of the Jeep has been great. It was a bit of a learning curve for the power requirements, and I think we have it dialed in now. Also helps that it’s not 120 degrees. If your on the fence about getting one, go for it. Todd

    We have been looking in getting an Inreach and am getting some mixed information. Of course the SOS is one of the reasons we want one (that we hope to never use) but my wife wants it so out kids can reach us by text message if they need too. I like the idea of the breadcrumb trail. I read...

    12v refrigerator/freezer AH per 24 hours?

    I am sizing the battery for my teardrop camper. I want to size for a future refrigerator freezer combo. I have read they draw from 2 to 4 amps while running, Start up is more like 5 to 10 amps. Snowmaster is the only manufacture that listed a typical run time at 12 hours out of 24. That model...

    Idea for charging house battery

    I am building a teardrop trailer that will have a house battery. I haven't decided on the size yet but my daily use is around 15 amp hours give or take. That would go up if we get a 12v fridge. If we do get a fridge it will live in the back of the Jeep and run off the Jeep when we are driving...
