LOL. I have a buddy that does that.. they have one of those large tents that has the connectors that branch out to other smaller tents for the kids. Fans in the doorways actually does a pretty good job of cooling for everyone.

We tease him all the time but they love it.

I saw that too. I am pretty sure it's a metal sided RV... it has a dimpled finish on it. I also saw a couple of dents in there which would signify metal.

I am surprised we got out of the lot. The DW and I drove around it 4 times, because we decided we want a different pic or another. Like it was the Ark or something. Kinda funny

I just want this for a TV. Saw at a BBQ in Independence MO.Attachment 153769 I guess if you custom build a trailer you can custom build a truck to pull it.
I like this truck

I did that first one before we bought the trailer. Lots of moisture on the tent but much cooler inside.

I wish I had thought about that second one when I had no a.c. in the car growing up.

Funny....it's for those nights on the road. I cannot imagine why? Rest stops don't have electrical hook-ups. Generator? Mom's house? Tap into Walmart's outdoor plugs?

Initially it takes in 100, puts out 70. But in a few minutes, it's taking in 95 and putting out 65. A few minutes more, it's taking in 90 and putting out 60. Basically like any vehicle's AC. And it only has to cool a pretty small space, not like it's trying to cool an entire trailer.

So it will do the job. The question is: Why?

Correct. It is constantly pulling in fresh, hot, humid air rather than recirculating the previously cooled cabin air. Maybe Bubba is working on a version 2.0?

Simple. It's wired up to plug in to the electric car charging post in the Walmart parking lot, and keep the car cool while you're shopping!

Huh? AC units recirculate 100% of the air, maybe a bit less if they have a vent. Vents usually take in about 10% outside air. If they didn't, tell me why your AC has a filter on the hot air return (or even has a hot air return).

Look again. The make-up air is all ambient air. No conditioned air. He has supply only.

OK, gotcha. I thought we were talking about post 3467, not 3464.

Dixie, Idaho

We spent 7 days in Dixie, Idaho riding our RZR's and having a great time with two other couples. It was a tad cold, low of 18 and the highs only go to the low 50s. That made for a nice fire in the mornings and evenings. Think that will be the last of the four wheeling in the mountains around there till spring. In the higher country we were dragging our bellypans, next step would be high centered.

Folks that run the Dixie RV Park were super accommodating. One couple thought they needed chains to get out of town, fairly steep grade with packed snow and ice, they loaned him a set of chains and I run them back down the road to his place before I hooked up my trailer.. I followed him out to see how the road conditions were. Didn't have any problems even with our trailer weighing 12440#. I wasn't too enthused about pulling a bumper pull trailer with that weight on snow and ice but worked out well.

No phone or internet for all that time wasn't really missed!
