    Bunk end shelves, no holes

    [PUC] [TV] we just finished both bunks with this exact set-up. Wish we would have done it sooner. Awesome mod!

    [PUC] [TV] We built the bunk end shelves with some $8 wire frame shelving you see at walmart. just needed chain and some pop rivits and we were good to go.

    boondocking long and lat for Alleghenny NF

    we hope to get to that point by next year. We are both travelers in health care and want to do a bit of that. I think you could combine your idea along with a geo caching trip. could be fun.

    Perfect Tow Vehicle?

    One good question to ask is what will the fuel economy be like with a camper on the back. Our Xterra gets 21 MPG daily but takes a hit at 13 MPG towing our heavy Coleman E3. Consider your needs: Will this also be a daily driver? Will you have the extra power when needed (mountain driving)...

    Looks like a good place to mention generator use

    Running A/C in your camper and using a generator MUST be stratagized! I see too many people buying $3000 generators to run their coffee maker or A/C when they could buy a french press coffee maker for $15 totally eliminating the need for a geni. First things first: BUY A POWER SAVER...

    Pics of generator box

    A pretty rediculous reason to argue considering that "pitch" of the Honda is saving the owner $$ by adjusting the throttle for best economy. How much gas does that hog go through just to please your ears?

    Converted to Dual 6v Trojans (Pics)

    That is nearly $1000 of equipment not including the air conditioner itself. I think you might re-think your goal friend ;)

    Our E3 with new T.V.

    We picked up a new Tow Vehicle last month and added some finishing touches to our E3. We just replaced the crappy filon roof with a 2011 aluminum (1) piece roof from Beckleys. No other mods this year yet...

    Known Amp Ratings to Calculate Power needs

    Another useful tool: Volts = watts/amps Watts/Volts = amps There are more formulas but most people can do their own equipment with these. Great thread! Dom

    Battery Box Mods

    I like your mods Steve. At first it seems crazy that you only used a 1.5 watt solar panel but for your Fleetwood Neon you probably only have 1 light bulb and that is the only thing inside of that camper that requires power so it seems like a fair fit. nice job. dom

    New Yamaha 2000 watt Genny

    Wise is awesome!! I ordered my Honda Eu2000i at noon on Friday and had it 22 hours later! Those Yamaha's are sweet and equally compairable to the Honda for a better price. The ECO mode is sweet!

    Built my own portable solar panel - Picture heavy

    So you bought the panels and connected them together? You didn't tab each of the cells and build the frames and assemble them?

    So, what did you do for your camper, March 2012?

    Our camper got a new roof!!! One of only "2" roofs left for the E3 and this was the ONLY 2011 roof. I am replacing the crack and leaking filon roof with the aluminum offered in later models. Roof arrived today!!! [:D]
