    60 day boat house build.

    Time, Quality or Price, pick any two! I choose time and quality because I don’t have years to wait on the price of things to go back to where they were because they never may. 50x34x16… 21 foot ridge with vaulted trusses. There are 10 pilings that at 24x48 under each truss foot and 40 yards...

    Lake Powell launch ramp spy photos

    I "borrowed" this off of another forum. I wonder how legit it is to copy pics out of another forum? Anyhoo, concrete is your friend in this case! This will probably suck up every yard of concrete out of the area for a while! This picture is full credited to @Gramps

    Anyone ever have a perko switch go bad?

    I think its the first time for me.... but I have a perko 2 battery switch failure. Is it a common enough failure to just replace it and forget about it or should I be looking for something that caused the failure. This is on a simple 350 chevy with 2 batteries. Is there a new modern upgrade...

    How many hours to break in a freshly rebuilt 350?

    1987 era Chevy 350 .030 over. Flat tappet cam a touch more aggressive than your typical Rv cam. I will run the start up 20 minutes at 2500 rpm but I need to know the lake time under 3500 with variable speed and on the break in oil with zinc.

    RV solar enthusiasts, Flex Solar Panels

    I watch way too many YouTube videos on solar stuff. But anywho, one of my favorite guys is Will Prowse and he recently did some testing on flexible solar panels. He hates 99% of them, because they fail or lose too much efficiency. Recently I noticed he put a flexible panel on his...

    LifePO4 batteries, anyone make the move yet?

    I am thinking about finally stopping to throw away money on lead acid and AGM. These are getting to my price point at $539. I would just isolate my load from stereo power amps and my fridge and charge off of shore power. I would leave a leadacid/agm on the starting circuit. They are not...
