  1. Thanks for coordinates guys, much appreciated. Someone mentioned I could join (pay) a boondocking site here on Escapees for more access to bboondock/Drycamping sites, anyone have any idea of what they might have been talking about? Thanks, Cee
  2. Hey guys, I'm looking for somewhere to Boondock / Dry Camp that's big rigable (36' toyhauler) around the Bridgeport, CA area. Any ideas?? Thanks guys, Cee
  3. Can I ask what you're planning on doing for the interior surface? ..... steel, alum, wood?... replacing the existing panels? Spray insulation (foam) would be a really good way to go. Make sure to use the polyurethane, Home Depot has a kit. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Touch-n-Foam-600-Board-ft-Polyurethane-2-Component-Spray-Foam-Kit-4006062600/204962775
  4. It looks like I'm going to roll with Max-Gain. Nice equipment, a little pricey but nice. Thanks guys for chiming in, much appreciated.
  5. Tom, thanks for the link but I don't need the burner to do Blu-Ray, just be able to read one if I ever have the chance to view one. All the ISO files I have have been compressed so there would be no need to try to burn one as the data is not there.
  6. That must be in your S&B right? ...... 65" in a RV? ..... LOL
  7. RV, thanks. As for the HDMI cable I have a right-angle one coming. As for the Turner if you look just down the the page there's a box you can click on for the dual turner one. The same for the speakers a box for the 10 watt version and one for the 20 watt version. This I did not notice this and ordered the 10 watt. I'm going to see if I can return (exchange) it for the 20 watt.
  8. Jack and Handy Bob are both excellent sources of information. I just wish someone would have pointed me towards a 24 VDC system back when I was doing my research. If at all possible think about a higher voltage battery system. Just my 2 cents....
  9. I'd have to agree with Yarome and Jack. One of the things to look at is the weight, weight equals Lead and Lead equals battery life and performance. As for charge I'm with Handy Bob and higher voltages. I run my bulk at 14.8 and absorption and 13.7, maybe 13.8 I water my batteries religiously, weekly when I'm living in the rig.
  10. I wanted to follow up with you guys to let you know where I’m at. I bought the Gigabyte Brix Core i3, a pretty awesome little machine. http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-i3-6100U-Barebone-Components-GB-BSi3H-6100/dp/B0196KJCPS/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 For the RAM we used the Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) supposed to run a little faster I guess. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005LDLVAO/ref=twister_B00H8JVIKM?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 We used the Transcend 128GB SSD for the programs to reside on. http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-128GB-MTS800-Solid-TS128GMTS800/dp/B00KLTPURI/ref=pd_sim_147_6/179-2162236-7568012?ie=UTF8&dpID=41-uwWXnXOL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=1ES15CRXH6MFNGPDH7X8 and a Seagate 1TB SSHD for general storage. http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Gaming-2-5-Inch-Internal-ST1000LM014/dp/B00B99JUBQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1464306753&sr=8-2&keywords=seagate+1tb+gaming I used Windows 7 software. We encountered a little problem installing the software. The Gigabyte Brix has all 3.0 USB Ports. Windows 7 only supports USB 2.0. We (my nephew) had to attach some sort of driver in with the Win7 software to get it installed. Anyway, he got it done and I’m up and running. http://www.amazon.com/Windows-Premium-Builder-Refurbished-Installation/dp/B00LG0K4MM/ref=sr_1_1?s=software&ie=UTF8&qid=1465154418&sr=1-1&keywords=Windows+7+Home+Premium+SP1+64bit%2C+System+Builder+OEM+DVD+1+Pack+%28For+Refurbished+PC+Installation%29 I mentioned above that the monitor was a Samsung but it’s not, it’s LG. I bought it at Costco for $130. No link to Costco but here’s to one at Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/LG-Electronics-24M47VQ-24-Inch-LED-lit/dp/B00W95RR32/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1465151017&sr=8-1&keywords=lg+24+led+monitor I bought this speaker system to install under the monitor. http://www.amazon.com/Soundbar-Powered-Subwoofer-Speaker-Earphone/dp/B01ARQMUE0/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1465154259&sr=1-1&keywords=ES+700A+Mini+TV+Soundbar+USB+Powered Here’s the wall mount I’m going to use. http://www.amazon.com/VideoSecu-Monitor-Screen-Maximum-Loading/dp/B000VKCIJU/ref=pd_sim_23_3?ie=UTF8&dpID=415LY37rzML&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=0YR78Y6QZD5XQ0H5YCEH On its way as I mentioned above is the Hauppauge Win TV-Dual HD Tuner http://www.amazon.com/Hauppauge-1191-WinTV-HVR-955Q-Tuner-Notebook/dp/B001DEYVXO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1465150018&sr=8-1&keywords=Hauppauge%27s+WinTV-HVR-955Q I need a few more USB ports. http://www.amazon.com/Anker-Ultra-Slim-4-Port-Data/dp/B00XMD7KPU/ref=sr_1_13?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1465153900&sr=1-13&keywords=usb+3.0+4+port+hub I’m splurging on a mouse pad http://www.amazon.com/Mouse-Pad-JETech%C3%82%C2%AE-Wrist-Black/dp/B0159S1O70/ref=sr_1_1?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1464646357&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=mouse+pad&psc=1&smid=A1RI0YHZ8J2HZU and on the list to get but not needed right now is a new Blu-Ray Player / Laptop Bruner. http://www.amazon.com/Blu-Ray-Player-External-Laptop-Burner/dp/B001TVAU0E/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1464647719&sr=8-5&keywords=blue+ray+burner+external When I get the installation going I’ll see if I can get a few pics posted here. FYI I’ve been updating my build thread over at SBR. http://www.southbayriders.com/forums/threads/119206/page-30
  11. Can you say 'Data Mining'. I'm with you guys, I prefer a little less technology...... No Facebook, No Twitter, No Smartphone, just a plain old computer and dumb phone....
  12. That's what I was looking for. All the parts are starting to arrive. I'll keep you posted on how the build goes and thanks for all the help. BTW, I'm looking forward to running into you guys somewhere along the line. Cee
