  Day Night Shades
Posted by: GotSmart - 9 hours ago - Forum: Builds,Modifications and Restorations - No Replies

Our new motor home has the fancy day night shades   These are pricey. Up to $300 each. Two of them have problems. They are hanging lose. I did a little research and got a kit for about $16 that can rebuild five of them.   It is easy and does not take a lot of muscle. 

I might be able to make a little cash while in LaPosa. Too bad the doctors made me give up my bad habits.  Undecided

Posted by: GotSmart - Yesterday, 05:04 AM - Forum: YARC - Replies (4)

I am color blind. I can’t tell a red light from a yellow, or a green light from a street light. 

I have 5 fused vertebrae in my neck. I can’t turn my head without moving my body. 

My hands go numb to the point where I can’t hold a beer up. 

My 6 lower vertebrae are so degraded where I can’t walk on a straight line. 

I hobble and weave and stumble my way around. 

My ankles and knees make more noise than a box of Rice Krispies. 

I can’t remember what I went into a room for. 

My trips are planned around places where I can pee. 

I have veins growing all over the outside and inside of my body. 

I make noises every time I move.

I am starting to miss the crappy cars made in the 80’s

But I can still drive better than 99% of the bozo’s on the road!

I just wanted to put a little post up to vent.

Build plans and ideas

There yours and yours alone. If they work for you then great. If they don't work for others then so be it. If they don't earn you the victim card forget about it.

"I poop in sardine cans and reseal them because it's free and they stack nice, and also allow me at glance to see how regular I am." Great cheap pooping 

In designing a rig know what you need. Water, storage, power, capability. The last one is a bugger to figure the other three a pain but critical. What works for others doesn't or might not apply to you. 

It might be your dream or your quickly tied parachute. But make it yours, own it and look at the top four points.

Points for style and creativity are yours and yours alone. Only badges and awards for not right.

  2 TYPES OF TIRES ON 1 VEHICLE?
Posted by: Texjbird - 10-18-2019, 05:39 PM - Forum: Passenger - Replies (13)

IT LOOKS LIKE I AM GOING TO BECOME A UNPREPARED VAN DWELLER WITHIN THE NEXT 4 TO 6 WEEKS,

SINCE I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TYPE OF ROADS I MAY DRIVE ON I'M THINKING ABOUT PUTTING SOME OPEN COUNTRY AT ll's ON THE REAR OF THE SAFARI SINCE IT'S A REAR WHEEL DRIVE.

WHEN I HAD THE CURRENT DESTINATION ll's  <<<<< {I THINK THEY ARE II's} PUT ON I WENT UP TO 225/ R15s.  I WAS TOLD THAT WAS THE BIGGEST I COULD USE WITHOUT CHANGING RIM SIZE AND/OR CUTTING OUT SOME SHEET METAL SO THE TIRES WOULDN'T RUB.

IN THE "OLDEN DAYS" I OFTEN RAN DIFFERENT TIRES AND SOMETIMES DIFFERENT SIZES TOO.  MY '57 FORD FAIRLANE HAD SHACKLES ON THE REAR AND SOME KIND OF METAL DOO DADS THAT SCREWED INTO THE COIL SPRINGS?  MY DEARLY DEPARTED HUBBY DID THAT.  
I JUST THOUGHT IT LOOKED KOOL Cool

WE RAN WIDER TIRES WITH A MORE AGGRESSIVE TREAD ON THE BACK OF MY '78 CHEVY CARGO VAN.  THIS WAS BECAUSE EVERYTIME HE DROVE IT ON THE BEACH HE EITHER ACTED LIKE HE WAS ON A SLIP-N- SLIDE  OR HE'D GET THE DAMN THING STUCK.  ONE NIGHT I HAD TO SLEEP WITH MY FEET AGAINST THE REAR DOORS/WALLS TO KEEP FROM ENDING UP LOOKING LIKE A PRETZLE CUZ WE WERE STUCK AT SUCH A INCLINE.  LUCKILY A DUDE IN A JEEP PULLED US OUT BEFORE THE INCOMING TIDE DID Undecided

THE ALINER WILL GET SOME ATTENTION LATER THIS MONTH AND HOPEFULLY I'LL BE ABLE TO RAISE AND LOWER IT.  THEN IT AND THE SAFARI GET ALL WIRED TO TOW   Big Grin  WHOOPEE!! IT'S A GOOD THING TOO.  TODAY THE CHEAPEST RENTAL I FOUND WAS A MOBILE HOME FOR $350mo DOWN IN CHIPLY FL AND IT NEEDS WORK.

I WELCOME ANY INPUT ON THE TIRES.  I HAD MY RANGER 4X4 FOR 13ys.  EVERYTIME I BOUGHT TIRES IT SEEMED LIKE A BATTLE.  SINCE IT WAS RATED FOR PASSENGER TIRES. I WAS CONSTANTLY SAYING " NO I WANT TRUCK TIRES OR HD TIRES CUZ IT'S LIFTED AND I TOW TRAILERS WITH IT"  SHEESH!!    Rolleyes

NOW I NEED TO PICK AND CHOOSE MY BATTLES CUZ I'M JUST TIRED.  I'M OK THOUGH.

  100 watt panel, on windshield vs behind it.
Posted by: sternwake - 10-17-2019, 10:04 PM - Forum: Solar/Electrical - Replies (9)

No shadows on any cell from windshield wipers or tint.
Facing due south.
100 watt bendable Sunpower panel.plugged into main mppt.controller in parallel with roof mounted solar

 On windshield. 87 watts
Same angle behind windshield. 43watts.

Repeated  3 times near noon with some high thin cirrus clouds. 
Behind windshield always halved output.

I was hoping for 2/3.the output,  half was disappointing,  but 43 watts is still more than my fridge draws.

Flexpanel needs lots of support when located behind windshield. Mine  formed a crease in between some cells with some.support top and bottom only.

Ill not recommend a panel in such a location without much more support, that can also allow panel to change size with heat.

hi, new to forum here, but staying at YARC camp since Sept 27th. I previously stayed at camp last March for two weeks while Jimindenver installed our solar. I live in an RV fulltime with spouse, 2 little dogs and a very zen kitty. We are here in Quartzsite waiting for the rest of gang to arrive. Come on back, its hot here but so serene and peaceful.

Heart On my way back to Quartzsite
Posted by: Free Spirit - 10-15-2019, 04:14 PM - Forum: YARC - Replies (6)

Hi everyone!  I'm in Cottonwood for another week then probably heading back to Quartzsite.  Some of you may 
remember me from last year some will not.  I was only there for about a month while Jim worked on my solar.
You all made me a member and welcomed me so I am staying the season this time.  Can't wait to see my friends again.  
I haven't been on mostly because of internet but I know you all wished me a happy birthday back in July.  Thank you all.Heart
