Used the same ones for 6 yrs without doing more than knocking them together to remove excess playa.

Signs of surface rust only.

Re: In Tent Fans

I think I would spray it rather than dunking.

And not at all if there is significant dust. Could get nasty.

I wonder if the price will go up due to tariffs, or demand, or both.

Re: What is your floor?

Grommets every 6 feet was plenty for mine and never had a fraying problem. Clear Channel leases most billboards, so maybe find a warehouse in your area. mine was $30 for a 15'x45' piece. The weird thing was it was a misprint so it was brand new and never posted. 8)

Re: cooling your tent or van

fresh: That box isn't big enough for an intake for that fan.

I had to go to a 20"x20" intake register in order to run my fan on high.

A wall wart that changes 120 volt AC to 12 volt DC and provides at least 3 amps.
About $6 at best buy.

Re: Decommodification Starts With You

The big issue was that somehow the 10 principles were my idea and how dare I tell people what to do and not do on the playa.

I thought we agree to the principles went we buy our ticket.

Silly me. :lol:

Re: cooling your tent or van

Turn the fan on then lift the lid.

If you can detect a change in fan speed, make your intake holes bigger till the fan can breathe freely.

Re: cooling your tent or van

The basics are perfect.

It's a "unicooler" without the box.

It would work even better if air couldn't get around the edge of the pad.

If he had left the pad full size and tucked the excess in around the fan, it would help a little. :lol:
