Re: cooling your tent or van

Cut the bottom half off another bucket.

Drill a hole in the middle of the bottom.

Screw it to the playa with a lag screw and washer.

Set cooler in it .

Re: Re-bar or Lag Screws for a Monkee Hut ?

Your lags may get bent a little, but they won't bend like rebar.

Easy to straighten with a hammer and can still be screwed in and out.

Re: cooling your tent or van

It says it's only 42 CFM. That won't do. I was born in AZ. in 1953, so most houses here didn't have AC. I've lived with swamp coolers my whole life and just used my experience to build what I wanted. I didn't consider dwell time. As long as the pads are wet enough you can pull all the air you want t...

Re: cooling your tent or van

If I understand that "blower fan" means it has a squirrel cage on it, then yes they are very good for coolers. It was my first choice. I wanted to use a blower motor from a junkyard as I could get it cheap and local. When I found out how much power they used I searched the internet for day...

Re: cooling your tent or van

World joe: get some small L brackets and small nuts and bolts.

Mount them top and bottom of the fan, then anchor to the bin.

Re: Recommended tent fan

Then the cooler wasn't functioning properly. Should have easily put out 70 degree air.

Re: Re:

Last year people tried to make the bucket cooler do more than it was ment to do, with moderate success. The main problems seemed to be a powerful enough fan and how to duct the air into the space. My box cooler worked great and I never use anything but the low speed on the fan. NOW INTRODUCING THE ...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Well that calls for a RECAP then!!!!!!!!!! The basic idea for the bucket cooler is just a smaller version of Yellowdog's cooler made from a rubbermade garbage can. An evaporative cooler will reduce the tempature by 20 to 30 degrees. Keep in mind that there is more than one way to skin a cat. (WARNI...
