    Internal fridge dividers

    Lately, I've been using a combo of 2+3L systema's. They stack well and it makes it far easier to remove ones down below rather a big ball of spaghetti for loose stuff thrown in there. I also use 4L goon cartons. They are great for cans and flat, vac packed meats. You can fit 4 cans in a 4L goon...

    Which dcdc charger

    I said, earlier I see no difference in the functionality of my idc25 and (admittedly - an older and larger 40A unit), the redarc in my camper. In fact the redarc was behind the 8 ball in that redarc did not have direct solar input. But things have changed and redarc has taken note of the...

    Cape York 1970

    Mate, that is an awesome recollection from yesteryear. Thanks so much for sharing. I only wish I could have come with you, but I would have been all of 3 years old at the time. I can only hope that in time I can have the same type of recollections to share.

    Travel Buddy Oven Trays

    I can put a tape on the marine one if you like.....however, the trays are sized to fit all the oven space. Length x width is identical to the internal dimensions (less a few mm for clearance and the "handle"). The height is also a tight clearance fit to the tray divider. You can fit two trays in...

    Which dcdc charger

    I have an idc25 in the car and a redarc bcdc1240 in the camper. I cant fault any of them. The older non d (dual) version of the redarc is a pita needing a solar change over relay, but that wont concern you with the 1225D. I have only recently heard some stories of the IDC25 having "solar"...

    Old 40L engel

    About 12 months ago, I defrosted the home freezer and put the engel into use inside as a freezer whilst I waited for the home one to melt its ice buildup. far out, I couldn't believe the condensation between the fridge and the bag - and it wasn't a time of high humidity inside.

    Solar blankets and soft style panels

    Check the specs of the 1225D. The original redarcs, std/ign/lv etc(non dual type) had a solar voltage switch on threshold of 17.5V. This worked fine with 21Voc panels, but you couldn't get 18Voc panels to turn the redarc's on. I had to problem solve quite a few peoples "why isnt my redarc taking...

    Cruizin' on 100

    Spending a lot of time in the car helps. Mind you, sleeping in a red hot swag isn't much chop. We had a few shocking nights.

    Solar blankets and soft style panels

    Well I have a "mid range" expensive projecta panel (120W @ $600) and it suffered this fate. Don't take the risk with cheap or poor blankets. It's not worth it, wack some cloth between them..

    Dobinson MRR shocks after c. 50K

    Answers to the above - Heavy: 32's: and lowered: crap and slow. You can safely assume that alright. http://sharkcaver.blogspot.com/2016/08/a-caning-on-canning-part-ii_17.html The stupid thing though is the MRR's ran so cool - up to half the temp of OME and Bilstein monotubes. That's why I...
