Re: Medium Duty Pros/Cons..care to share?

.02 I drove single axle and tandem axle 15-25 tone commercial trucks in town blue boxing for many years. Medium duty would have a lot of advantages. Fuel economy would not be one of them. All other things being equal(ish) fuel economy will always go down with the size and weight of a rig. The bigger...

Re: 97 Crestline's Slow camper build

At home I see snow an average of 2-3 days per year. On a completely vertical surface not much snow is likely to stick... worse case it might need to be cleared occasionally. I’ll definitely not loose any sleep worrying about it. Headlights could be more of an issue because I’ve even seen snow build ...

Re: Fridge / Refrigerator WHERE install?

I’ve picked up a Dometic CR-50. It opens out and I plan to modify the Ambulance cabinets for it to fit above the wheel well on the drivers side with a 10” high microwave on top.

From Randy’s they’re less than $500 shipped (code NEW10 to save 10%). I’ll post pictures when I have it installed.

Re: 97 Crestline's Slow camper build

Can you guess which is the new LED and which is the Halogen?

5 W per LED vs 37.5 W per Bulb.

I switched to the whiter light to go better with the white rig... and save a ton of power.

Re: 97 Crestline's Slow camper build

I’ve also ordered these for the exterior lights. They’re not here yet. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07CJTZGHQ The LEDs arrived today. I only managed to get a pair installed today. They are a bright white that makes the Halogen Bulbs look yellow. I chose the bright white to better match the whi...
