Re: cooling your tent or van

Most vans are 5x5x8 which is 200 cb ft. And I thought you said your yurt was 579 cb ft? There are lots of people getting variable temps from the cooler do to some small mistake or "change" they made.

Re: Shake-down on the Rezs?

The number of LEO assigned for this task is not purportional to the population, or normal traffic on that road which would normally only require a few more officers. I don't think the size of that force was coincidental.

Re: cooling your tent or van

The bucket as designed will replace all the air in that space every 2 minutes.

If the pad stays wet and ALL the air has to pass through that pad. it should be fine with a single cooler.

Re: cooling your tent or van

The outer pad needs to be tall enough that the drip halo seals between the pad and lid.

This forces ALL incoming air to go THROUGH the wet pad.

Just tuck some extra pad under your tube till it's tall enough.

That way you won't have to redo the tube. 8)

Re: cooling your tent or van

Trim the outer pad to the size of the bottom of the bucket (30"s I think) and anything will work to seam it into a tube. Silicone, Staple, or loose stitch with fishing line or thread. Doesn't matter on the inner pad as that is mainly to rest slightly higher than the outer pad to holed the dripline i...

My yurt has a 24x12” window.

Can I use that space as both an intake for the ducting connected to my cooler AND a separate exhaust duct running from the roof to outside, solar chimney style? I’m trying to minimize cuts in the structure.
Yes

Re: cooling your tent or van

Not that way. That wall wart would supply up to 1/2 amp, but the fan will only draw what it needs.

And if you fan only draws .25 amps it's way too small for a cooler.
