I would say "that was a beer or 2 well spent"! And maybe the other 4 or 10 enjoyed.... just for the accomplishment.

I have a buddy that welds. I'll definitely need to keep this in mind. TY.

I have a 2011 Mini Light, my battery keeps going dead. We had an electrician look at it and he said the gas detector is what is draining the battery. Anyone else with this problem? If so, what did you find out about it? Thank you

If not in use for awhile, battery can go weak. I would have a load test done to check battery strength. I would not think a gas detector uses much voltage. You can also install kill switch to isolate the battery from any drainage

Our 2002 Lexus RX300 v6 does very well with our 2011 MiniLite etc as it only weights 2750 lbs dry. I've had it over 10,000 ft Sonora Pass (CA Hwy 108), a road with an attitude and several very tight switchback turns requiring down shifting to low and losing RPM/torque. I don't think it would do as well with any more weight back there.

Mini-lite etc survival

I pull mine with an 06 jeep lj to close camp spots. Lj has 3500 tow. Tows good. But the V8 Hemi does the hard stuff. Went to ozarks few months ago
