  2. Wave 6 Catalytic Heater Review

    I've enjoyed my Wave 8 but found that it hasn't been enough to keep my 27ft 5W warm when it gets into the 40s
  3. Couple of Questions for Experienced Boondockers

    I boondock almost exclusively when traveling and have found my fridge (and water heater) run on a 30# propane tank for about 3 weeks for 1 person when showering every other day and cooking every other day on the stove top. For two people that would probably be closer to 2 weeks. For just lights (and fridge) I could easily run on 100W solar panel and a low AH battery

    Forgot about this topic but I'd be interested in buying a set of those too!!!
  5. Solar retailers in Las Vegas, south side

    Doesn't have to be Renogy brand...they just happen to be who I bought my panels and MC4 series/parallel connectors from...anywhere that carries MC4 extension cables would be fine. I've searched for solar retailers in Vegas but they are all geared to house set-ups and don't seem to sell components (at least not online) I don't have Prime so that isn't an option and I don't know anyone who does.
  6. I just added two more 100W solar panels to my roof and now need to get them hooked into the system...the problem: the wires don't reach. I know Renogy sells the MC4 Solar Extension Cables that I need but they won't ship quickly enough as I am moving locations on Thursday. I am passing Las Vegas on the south side (on my way to Pahrump and Death Valley NP) and was hoping there would be a place to buy them in LV instead, and one that is hopefully not too difficult to get to from the interstate. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get these things?
  7. Can I really full time on $2,000 a month

    As a young solo full-timer, but with two dogs) I work part of the year on much less than $2K a month and that includes paying rent and putting aside some for savings. I went the 5W and truck route since I already had the truck, and a 5W/TT made the most sense for my plans (similar to yours in staying in one location for a while). I boondock (my investment in a solar set-up has been invaluable for that) mostly when traveling and find private spots (not RV parks) to rent for cheap when working.
  8. WiFi and Cell Booster in combined unit

    This is the kind of info I was looking for. I guess I will look for two separate units instead. I will only be using one at a time as if I have wireless (where I am now) I am not needing to boost 4G, and vice versa. I am guessing the most recommended cell booster is the WeBoost as I seem to see it everywhere Any recommendations for a wifi booster?
  9. Is there such a product that does both? I am looking for something that can pick up and boost low 4G signal (or even 3G maybe) and WiFi (for private spot rentals). I really don't want to have to buy two products if there is something available that can do both.
  10. DW wants an oven

    What is she wanting to cook? I've heard of people making anything they can make in an oven in an InstaPot...including banana bread.
  11. back in the trailer again

    Ha ha, I'm one of them...not probably in Arizona yet since I just got here, but I am guilty. I have hauled trailers for years and years, including cattle and horses, which is actually where I started. There are some ridiculous-looking roads I have had to haul a loaded gooseneck trailer up and down so a 5W feels like a dream since it doesn't contain any moving bodies!!!

    A lot of it sounds like it is similar to the ranch work I have done for years so pretty used to working hard and getting dirty. Seems like a pretty good job for me...just waiting on the second phone call to go in and start paperwork, or I might just drop in and see them since I will be in town anyway later.

    Everyone's input has been great. Now that I just received a job offer for the winter I will look into picking up a set of the stabilizers. Thanks guys
  15. Jack Blocks

    The movement isn't fun when it's really blowing but my main concern is that the legs really shouldn't be extended so long...longer legs = more torque when things move = more stress on the tube and the pins I already have 8" under them and was hoping to at least increase that to 12-14" blocks. I will also look at the stabilizers.
