  1. Thanks, folks. I already have a Clam. Like I said, I use it as a motorcycle garage. Even with the sides (which I also have) it would be too cold/drafty in the winter. Also, most of them are not big enough or are just barely big enough to fit around a table. After someone reminded me that Clam makes thermal hubs for ice fishing and so I went down the trail for a bit and I'm seriously considering an Eskimo Outbreak because of the large door which goes all the way to the ground: https://geteskimo.com/products/outbreak-650xd This Vortex would be another option except t
  2. About 130" to play with for clearance of the vent on the water heater if I move it right up against the trailer. I hardly every run the fridge on LP so no worries there.
  3. Oh, I totally forgot about their thermal huts. That's actually a great idea. Running outside with a tape measure right now to get the distance between the edge of the door and the vent for the water heater...
  4. I have one of those I use as a motorcycle garage. :) Barring something square, I'm thinking that might be another option. I know they are super easy to up/down.
  5. Various vendors seem to call them by various names. I'll check that user's history out. Thanks.
  6. I'm just happy that a thread I started has eventually evolved to the topic of Shower Beers. ;)
  7. Anybody bothered with an add-a-room/enclosure with their Elite II? Oddly enough, now that we are getting into colder weather I'm interested in enclosing the area just outside the door. You think it would make more sense to do so in the Summer but my daughter and I try to sit outside when we eat and it'd be nice to enclose that area and maybe even figure out a way to get some heat out there so we aren't forced inside completely. Thx
  8. Yes, that's right. This particular park was built back in the early 70s. I suspect the 50A circuits are quite a bit newer. The park is also sort of sorted into 30A and 50A sections and I suspect the 50A section got a bit more design consideration. I guess it'd be interesting to plug into 30A on the post in a 50A section and compare the voltage versus that coming from the 50A plug and through the dog bone. Over the last year or so I've noticed that the scenario I've described is pretty common at many other parks as well...if I'm plugged into 30A the AC kicks off so frequently that its basi
  9. The same here. I've only noticed that fan kicking on when the batteries are charging. It did *not* kick on when the temp was up above 100F. Now that the temp has dropped (thanks to clouds/smoke) I've not been noticing the smell. I will keep an eye on it though.
  10. Hey, folks. QQ about something I've noticed this weekend... If I run the overhead fan in exhaust mode (while cooking on the range top, for instance) with the AC running I notice a smell that I will call "hot electricals". Sort of ozone-y, I guess. If I turn the exhaust fan off the smell goes away. I started pulling panels and sticking my face in the cubbies to identify the source and it does seem to be coming from the compartment with the Progressive unit. I also have the AC quickstart option on my trailer. Now, its been ~110F here for the last few days so I expect the electrical sys
  11. This may be an option : https://dancarrphotography.com/blog/2017/08/04/how-to-wire-goal-zero-solar-panel-zamp-connector/ Another project on the pile of projects...
  12. Clarifying just in case anyone stumbles on this thread later... solar generator: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CRQX9KW charge controller: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076631RKH/ suitcase: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06Y3TC113/ That setup has two(?) issues with connecting to ZAMP system in Oliver: 1) Would require an 8mm-to-SAE adapter except ZAMP wires their SAE connectors backwards because "single vendor". 2) It's unclear that the external solar port on the Oliver passes through the on-board charge controller. Thanks, everyone.
  13. This reminds me of Apple hardware versus everyone else. Are there no standards? And where there are can you please follow them! 😉 Thanks for the info. I guess I'll likely have to give up on the idea of having a single suitcase for all use-cases.
  14. The controller is an add-on installed in the "generator". I was hoping to carry the panel back and forth between my Oliver and my overland rig. Sounds like that'll require some creative wiring at the least. Glad I asked! Thanks for the info!
  15. Howdy, folks. I did a quick forum search and didn't get any results so perhaps its time for a topic? Anybody hooked up a Goal Zero panel to the ZAMP controller using the 8mm-to-SAE adapter here: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1366342-REG/goal_zero_98063_8mm_to_sae_connector.html/DFF/d10-v21-t1-x851970/SID/EZ Is it safe/smart to assume the ZAMP controller is "downstream" of the external solar connector and will thus do its thing for this non-ZAMP panel?
