    WFCO 8725 vs Parallax 6730

    I don't know much about the Parallax 6730 but I changed my converter out the the WFCO 8725 a few years ago and never looked back. I just used the breakers out of my old converter. My vote is for the WFCO 8725.

    Proper PSI?????

    Ray, The tires are small so they need more air to support the load. 75 psi sounds about right. You need that much pressure to support the max load of 910 lbs / tire. That will keep the side walls of the tire from flexing too much and will keep the tire from overheating. Soft side walls and...

    Dog Rant from Dog Owner

    I just got home from 4 weeks on boondocking in the Colorado mountains. I took my dog and we had a great time with him. He is young and he is a rescue puppy to boot so he has some issues.

    Please post pictures, lots of pictures. I am planning on doing the same thing this fall when it cools down some. Did you replace the main cable or just hook the main cable on the lift system to the winch?

    As long as the mold did not get in the foam rubber mattress you should be able to clean everything else and be OK.

    12 volt to 3 volt

    The devices that Twisty and aeisbren suggested should do the job if you do not need more than an amp of current when it sparks. Good luck!

When it broke that end of the axle swung back about 8" and the camper frame went down and settled on the tire. I was going up a dirt road looking for a place to camp when...
