You can partially close the Homer buckets snug without pushing them down so far that the lid locks on.

Re: The Bar 2017 Edition

Get a nap before heading north to the playa!!!

That last leg can be excruciating after a long drive.

I did it the first year and left before the Man Burn because entry made me unable to face a long exodus. :roll:

Re: cooling your tent or van

The tank was a fresh water travel trailer tank that goes under the bed. When Stood on end it has about the dimensions of the unicooler, once you cut it down to size. Use small nuts and bolts to secure the vent, then ziptie or wire the pad and dripline to that. Small L brackets can be used to mount t...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Very nice. :)

The only difference is I run my wires UNDER the pad, then up the side and out one of the holes.

The pics give a different impression because that was in test mode.

Re: Any tips for a very, very basic bar

Get a folding card table, the ones with the 4 fold down legs.

Get some 1" EMT to slide over those legs.

Cut them the length you like for the height you like.

Re: Air intake & filter issues for RV/van swamp cooler

QUESTION #2: The original design shows the fan on the intake side, and the foam on the output side. Is it just as good to reverse these (as I have seen on one image) - putting the fan on the output side so it sucks air through the foam, rather than pushing it through? If I put the cooler inside the ...

Re: Air intake & filter issues for RV/van swamp cooler

The only cooler designed to be inside is the unicooler. You just push the intake side against any opening in the space. With an RV, a shelf mounted by one of the sliding widows does the trick, as long as you get a good seal around the intake. With a van, you MAY be able to set something like that up...

Re: Best Battery to power Unicooler for the week

Walmart has a 100 AH "marine" deep cycle battery for around 80$.

If you run the fan on low or medium for 4-5 hours a day, that battery should last all week.
