Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

I've switched to mule tape because it's cheap and the 3/4" has a 2500 pound breaking strength.

Made for tension!!! 8)

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

If I get the polarity switch on my fan, it just doesn't turn.

Doesn't hurt it at all.

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.

Re: cooling your tent or van

See, that's a BIG power investment for only 50 more CFM, but it wouldn't suck my pads dry.

The trickle is plenty to keep the pad wet.

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

Signs of surface rust only.

I think I would spray it rather than dunking.

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)

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.

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.

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.
