    Clearance around air compressor?

    Clearance around air compressor?

    Thanks all. I started mounting it last night. Since I won’t be needing the on/off switch that comes mounted on the 400P, I took that end cap off and it reduced the length by 2”, so now it will fit in that spot it it’s proper orientation. I had to take the airbox, headlight and inner fender well...

    Clearance around air compressor?

    Makes sense, I’m just trying to cut back on the amount of stuff I have to load/carry, so hard-mounting means it is always there, and always out of the way.

    Clearance around air compressor?

    I decided to hard-mount my Viair 400P compressor instead of leaving it portable. The question I have is, how much space do I need to leave around the compressor for heat? I asked Viair, and they just said “keep compressor away from anything that should not get hot”. Gee, thanks Viair! I want to...

    Front Runner Wolf Pack Legs

    This is great, way to think outside of the box! I'd be interested in taking it a step further and make the legs just under 2x the inside length of the box. Then hinge the legs in the middle, a simple barrel latch would keep them from folding on you. This would only cost a few bucks more and...

    Gear for the kids

    Also, I'd skip the mummy bag, and go for square bag for the kids, if they are anything like mine, they move around a lot in their sleep, and like to sprawl out. A good night's sleep means a happy kid the next day, and I'm all about that.
