Re: cooling your tent or van

SORRY!!!! :oops: I funked up the pump links above. Fixed now. :oops: Which should answer your pump question. In your case where you want to double stack the media I would go with the thinner pads. If only single stack, the thicker pad. The reason is the air flow restriction. Thicker pads means more ...

Re: Fuck!

I had the same FUCK last week TT! Mine was the transfer case in my truck. Luckily I can do it myself, but its needs to be dropped, dismantled, replace a couple bearings & bushings. At least hopefully that is all it needs. :| I was going to ask you about your tickets, sorry to hear they are still los...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Assuming I found the same links you are looking at, note the 3073 pd takes two months to ship , probably from China. Also note there is another size to select on the 3074 which is a bit cheaper. Also HomeDepot, Lowes and some Walmarts carry these too. What pump are you looking at? The one listed? If...

Re: cooling your tent or van

Don't plug into the 12VDC jacks on the gennys. They are not regulated and will smoke both pumps and fans. Ask me how I know this. :oops: You need something like this 120VAC to 12VDC converter. Then get one of these to connect to your pump/fan. 10 amps DC is more than enough for the fan & pump. and i...

Does this make it any more likely to survive? Unfortunately, no. Any plastic/PVC is susceptible to fatigue and breaking. In the heat they stretch, in the cold the get brittle.

Re: Does a FIGJAM cooler work for an East Coast regional?

It all depends on the humidity, dew point actually but close enough. If the conditions are to the left of the blue squares, it will do something. Now that something may not be worth it or be soo muggy it makes no difference. Out here in the SW I would run my home unit up to about 95'F/40%. Anything ...

I believe they have a filter for amazon, CL, etc.

The fans are the same, note model#.
The pump uses 1/2" ID tubing. Grab a 1/2" x 5/16" x 5/16" tee for your header.

I thought the north gets most of the sun, and that's where we usually direct a lot of our shade, As FJ stated. It does down under, but we are, and you will be, in the northern hemisphere so it flips..... 8) I'm guessing the PVC fittings have a spring clip of some sort to hold the poles in place. Th...

Don't forget the fan . An option to the PVC fitting is rigid dryer duct . Mount the fan 'on top' of the lid. Shape the duct to a square and work it onto the fan. Wrap with a towel or bubble wrap for some insulation. Search around on the Jungle as they do have a two pack for those pumps. Good to have...

Re: Soldering/forming guidance for copper pipe?

Token has the idea. He beat me to it. Cut a wedge. The key is to clean the shit out to the pipe before cutting. (makes it easier to clean then after the cut) Sand it shiny, make the cut, leave any burrs as it gives the solder something to grab onto. Then apply flux. You torch flame needs to be low a...

Re: Couple looking for 2 people to share RV with

I'll echo what you received on FB. Sharing an RV with strangers is a crap shoot at best. Harsh conditions, tight quarters, RV rules not followed. I understand trying to spread the costs around but think hard before doing this. Lots of horror stories if you look for them.

Yup! I use them for grey water evap. This Bin style holds 6 gals of water, evap at 2gals per hour in the heat of the day, 1-1.5 the other times.

I am building a larger trashcan style that hold 12gals. 24"tall x 15"dia media cartridge, 8" Radiator fan, dual pumps.
