    Small generator

    It comes with the connection hose that fits a 1lb disposable tank. You can buy a steel braided hose from ALP to connect the bulk tank for about $22 although any 1lb to bulk tank conversion hose on Amazon will work. A 1lb tank I believe is good for about 5 hours. We carried a 11lb shorty...

    Small generator

    It’s a great little generator. Small, lightweight and clean since no gas involved. Only ran it a couple of times before selling but started right up and was quiet. When Champion came out with a lightweight dual fuel 2500 watt that would run our a/c, the ALP became a spare so we sold it.

    Small generator

    ALP makes a 1000watt inverter generator that only runs on propane. You can run it for hours on a green disposable propane bottle of connect it to a bigger tank. Small and lightweight to handle and use. We sold our ALP because we wanted a generator that would run our a/c.

    Small generator

    We have a Champion Gen 2500 model #100899. Dual fuel and we always run it on propane as we carry that anyway for the trailer, grill and fire pit. No messy gas to haul around and go stale in the generator. This model is only 39lbs and compact enough to fit in the trunk of our truck. It...

    1500w inverter on TV - use/application ideas?

    We tried our Honda’s 100w while driving plug to power our 12v cooler. We plug our Jackery 500 into the truck and then the cooler into the Jackery. This setup gave us continuous power to the cooler whether the engine was running or not. Worked well until it got hot outside. The Jackery...

    2023 Aliner Evolution - A First Look

    We created a inside shower setup in our 2018 Classic and drain the water through a separate drain into a sealed 6 gal portable tank. Holds two showers of water. We store the unit, folding tub and curtain in the door side dinette compartment. It takes us about 5-10 minutes to setup and then...

    Sticker shock

    The dealer we bought our 2018 Aliner Classic from, Princesscraft in Austin, Texas is selling Aliner’s reduced 20-25% off MSRP. Not sure that helps as MSRP’s have gone up so much but at least the market seems to be softening. Good luck finding the right unit for your family.

    Inverter and small TV for 1640LTD

    We have a ac 24 inch Roku TV that we hang in our Aliner. When we don’t have shore power, we plug it into a Bestek 300w inverter. Draw is not significant for us to worry about. We tried 3 different 12v dc only tvs before this and either trashed or gave each to Goodwill. All 3 had horrible...

    We have done 4 week trips the last two post Covid summers and the only reason to end the trip was to take care of the bricks and sticks house. We have the Aliner Classic 12ft box. What helps us is the midsize truck we tow with. Covered bed and back seat are organized carefully. We take...

    Cell booster???

    We have had a Weboost RV for a couple of years. Unfortunately we don’t remote camp often so can’t vouch for it in the real boondocks. We find that if we have at least one bar of signal, turning on the Weboost will usually add at least another bar. It wouldn’t work at the bottom of Palo...

    Propane relocate

    You would probably need to reconfigure your loading to offset the heavier tongue weight. Can the frame handle the weight without more reinforcement? Most trailers use frames barely strong enough for designed purpose.

    Ford Bronco?

    The Bronco shares its underpinnings with the Ford Escape. We towed a 2,200 pound popup with our Escape Titanium also tow rated for 3,500 pounds. Felt good on flatter gulf coast state roads. No noticeable performance issues. However, we didn’t feel we had enough excess capacity for...

    Hot Water Tank vs Tankless Water Heater

    Water line in was a simple take off old Suburban an screw onto new heater. It is strongly recommended to install a pressure relief value on the outgoing connection. We had to buy a smaller size Camco relief valve from Amazon as the box stores only carry home size valves. To install the...

    Aliner leaking water heater

    If fittings aren’t leaking you may need to pull the tank. Before buying a new water heater maybe pull and set it on a outdoor table and hook it up to water under pressure and see if you can find a tank leak. If no leak you can reinstall and at least know the tank is good. Being a 2nd owner...

    Aliner leaking water heater

    How old is the water heater/trailer? Is it a Suburban water heater? If so is the anode rod good and had the water heater been drained and flushed? Suburban’s have tanks that can rust out if not maintained. That would be worst case. Hopefully just a loose fitting. There are several in...
