  Kites?

I figure the wind in the desert is enough to fly even the largest of kites.

  Housetrucker?
Posted by: tx2sturgis - 05-12-2018, 08:15 PM - Forum: Commercial - Replies (7)

It's not very often that a Wikipedia article could be described as a 'fun' read, but this one is:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Housetrucker

Not only does it seem (to me) to shed a positive light on the whole nomadic vehicle-dwelling lifestyle in New Zealand, but it reminds us that a vagabond lifestyle is fairly common and valued around the world, since ancient times. 

Well, except for maybe here in the USA, that is.

  Hot Springs, Arkansas Trip
Posted by: American Nomad Patriot - 05-12-2018, 07:58 PM - Forum: Travel Log - Replies (11)

While work camping here in Little Rock, AR I went to Hot Springs, AR today. It's was only about 45 minute drive. It was a good day. Hiked up a mountain to this look out tower. Darn near straight up. After basically climbing/hiking up about 1/2 mile I find a road where I could have just drove up to the top of the mountain. SMH. I decided to just keep going up. Wow..am I going to feel the pain in the morning !!  Anyways, The natural hot springs area holds lots of history. Enjoy the photos. 
Headed back there tomorrow to go on a 2 hour zip line tour. WEEEEEEEEEE !!!

  Interesting floor idea
Posted by: Motrukdriver - 05-12-2018, 03:09 PM - Forum: Builds,Modifications and Restorations - Replies (6)

We're gonna do this in the rental house kitchen and dining room we're remodeling and I got to thinking, I wonder if this would be a cool idea for the TT floor.  Would the trailer flex too much and cause cracking?  They are not using tile grout but another product I'm not familiar with. Seems light enough being solid pine.  Yes.. No ??  Opinions on this please.

  Problem with '02 7.3 diesel
Posted by: BradKW - 05-11-2018, 06:36 PM - Forum: Mechanical Problems - Replies (39)

Just limped out of the mountains into Asheville, NC with some engine problems I'm having. Looks like I'm going to wait till shops reopen on Monday and try to get it looked at. The one guy that does 24/7 repair has such horrible reviews on Google I'm afraid to try it. Any input welcome!

The problem exhibits primarily as engine stumbling on steep grades, making top speed of 25mph highway... seems to have improved to 40mph after adding cetane boost/injector cleaner.

When I pull over, engine idles perfectly, and revs smoothly to a point (guessing 3500 rpm?) where it stumbles and will belch white smoke from exhaust. Smells strongly of diesel and pretty confident that this isn't a water issue. Repeated engine revving will keep blowing smoke, gradually clearing until get full revs, nice and smooth like there was never a problem. Resuming driving and runs fine for varying periods, seemingly related to grade/engine strain. Rinse/wash/repeat at least got me out of the mountains and to Asheville NC.

After additive added, there was an improvment.

Check Engine light appears randomly, either resetting itself or will reset when vehicle turned off.

This problem first appeared in flat FL six months ago while on first long trip after spending better part of a year just sitting, idling, or moving parking spaces. It cleared up and never caused a stumble again...but after the truck sits overnight, it takes a few revs of engine to clean out and blow a little smoke...after that, not again until it sits.

On a strange sidenote, the Overdrive "off" light started flashing just before I parked for the day.

  Solar panel damage?
Posted by: Mr.LooRead - 05-11-2018, 06:34 AM - Forum: Solar - Replies (3)

If a poly or mono solar panel is left in full sun while disconnected from the solar controller and hooked to nothing can one damage the panel?
