    Might have bitten off more than I could chew (figuratively speaking)

    why njot just get a discada, or a Comal pan? way cheaper and can be used on any stove, or burner.. just doesnt get the overlander points... personally I like heavy cast iron, but its just that heavy... so i stick with my GSI cookware... it packs down small, and I have enough pots and pans for...

    Garmin in reach mini

    as long as it can be exported/imported as a .gpx file, but looking at the earthmate app on my phone it allows sharing of maps and waypoints/routes from earthmate to others, but no way to import through a .gpx file. only maps available are those earthmate lists in its layers.. I honestly use Gaia...

    inexpensive 5lb bottle mount?

    Doesnt look like it, but easily solved with a bike lock... and to be honest locks dont make things safe/secure, just keeps honest people honest. thieves will steal the entire rack.

    Why did I get a dual zone Dometic fridge/freezer? What will I freeze?

    I use my Iceco VL60DZ (dual zone) and I use the freezer for ice-cream, desserts, and for frozen vegetables for a side, or in a stir fry, or frozen veggies for an omlet, or packaged meals (simple skillet melas) for when its crappy outside, and you just want to setup camp, eat, and go to sleep...

    inexpensive 5lb bottle mount?

    I'm looking for it to fit on here.... nothing mounted other than RTT atm.. but I do plan to add maxtrax, and a double rotopax water and gas cans. it will free up space in my bed & camping boxes so I only carry 1 spare (emergency 1lb bottle instead of 5 of them packed in a plano box.... also...

    inexpensive 5lb bottle mount?

    looking for an inexpensive 5lb bottle mount for propane bottle for my bed rack... I'd prefer one that locks the bottle in, or uses at least 2-3 of the larger SS hose clamp style with rubber isolator pad... I plan to leave it in place on the rack, and get a longer hose to feed my stoves...

    fridge power

    Soo.... bit long winded of a post, but... I was able to get a hold of a 85Ah Odessey 27f AGM 925CCA. while not my first choice (had ordered a X2 power/Northstar 27f 92Ah 1230CCA AGM - but due to timing, and shipping issues was not going to arrive in time for my trip). So I used the stock 24f...

    fridge power

    The only reason I was looking at the Redarc BCDC over the renogy, victron or others was that the Redarc is 1 sealed.. it can be mounted under the hood and be subjected to heat/water, dust... 2. it has options for solar charging with built in MPPT controller that i believe will handle up to 200w...

    fridge power

    This is my current setup (just got the new bed rack 2 weeks ago), I dont have anywhere to mount a solar panel at the moment, unless I am stationary (fold out type), or get the Cascadia VSS Panel (85w for tacoma hood).

    WELL... after a lot of conideration, and looking at my tax return NOT returning...(I E-filed on Feb 21st, and got my state return, & 1st &3rd stimulus payment, but still have $5500 in income tax refunds in a holding pattern... thanks stimulus payments!). I have decided to go with a slightly...

    fridge power

    @REDARC_Ryan oh, ok awesome, that was my next question reguarding the batteries such as the battelborn with an integrated heater.. I would assume that batteries such as the battle-born / Weize / Espertpower and a few other have temperature shutoffs in the BMS that wont accept a charging...

    fridge power

    I do have one question @REDARC_Ryan on the redarc website it says that the BCDC wont charge a LiPo/LiFePO4 battery in freezing conditions to avoid damaging the battery, but is this based off the battery's BMS? or is this a temperature probe on the BCDC 1225? I ask because i was looking at the...

    fridge power

    My gripe with the "solar generators" is that they have a limited capacity.. until you get into the 1000 series of jackery/goal zero, and at that point (over $1000) I could have an AUX battery setup that rivals in power available, and has a $200-300 component (battery) that needs to be replaced...

    fridge power

    Typically it would be sitting overnight say 6pm-10am soo 16hours typically, but I have some camping trips planned where it would be extended to 3-4 days no driving/motor charging. I would like to be able to sustain it for 4 days with minimal input. which is why i would idealy like to get a solar...

    fridge power

    Soo... I got myself a fridge I ordered myself an Iceco VL60DZ (45w draw)with insulated cover. It is roughly the same size as my previous ice cooler Lifetime 77Qt. I have so far only tested the fridge on 120v wall outlet power (love that there is no Ac/DC brick to lug around..). and it quietly...

    spice storage

    Specialty coffee setups (ultra coffee snobbery)

    I carry multiple ways to make coffee.. one is in my Jetboil flash (either boil water, add instant coffee crystals (quick coffee for trailside), I also have some coffee singles (theyre like a teabag, but filled with coffee you steep in your cup (bit weak, but ok when in a rush). other is the...

    Real Life review of Portable refrigerator....

    I have been looking to get a Auxillary battery, and the Iceco VL60D.. ($795 with the insulated cover), and possibly a slide out to fit in the bed of my Tacoma.. from looking at the pros and cons.. there seems to be less cons as I go.. no ice, no soggy food, I can make/keep ice in a baggie on...
