Re: HexaYurts

Pending on Location and Time of year permitting yes. Most of the time they raise the price to about $125 during the summer. Like now... Yes. You can find 5000 BTU air conditioners for under $100.00 at Home Depot. Would this AC fit the bill for what's being described here? (a unit that recirculates i...

Re: HexaYurts

Lol I dont understand how your saying portable ACs are less trouble.... There twice as heavy as window units. require twice as much setup and take down. And no one ever said they needed to be high off the ground mounted on the yurt... that would be impossible. Set them on a crate or some 2x4s. Cut a...

Re: cooling your tent or van

So fig I built my cooler which cost me about 47 bucks for everything and I'm seeing about a 15 degree difference with a thermometer. Will it work better in dry conditions when things are like 90% humidity like it is in florida lol. I know they work buy putting moisture into the air right?

Re: 12v Battery and 10v Pump

Its easy and cheap to drop the voltage from 12 volts. Silicon diodes have a 0.7 volt drop across the junction. Most 12 v batteries actually put out about 12.6 volts. So put three diodes in series (3 x 0.7v = 2.1 volts) with the power lead for a 2.1 volt drop. Easy peasy. For extra bonus points, thr...

12v Battery and 10v Pump

Using this combination in a swamp cooler. Are there any risks? I was planning on using ice in the cooler so that would maybe help the heat from the over voltage... I just wanted someone else 2cents. Thanks!
