    Dometic Fridge Sale at Backcountry

    I don't think that they will be selling the CFX3 range at that price because some shops haven't even got the new CFX3 range in stock yet,

    What you look for in a portable power unit

    Nothing beats the Dometic PLB-40 for ease of use, Speed of Charging and it's Charging options, It can run a 150w inverter, I have plugged a 300w inverter in to it but that was only to use a small wattage Gizmo so I never got anywhere near the 150w recommended limit, And it has a DC to DC Charger...

    Favorite Multi-tool

    FM-62DZ Whynter Vs SnoMaster EX67D

    I think you misunderstood what I said, I am doing a 3 fridge test using 3 different power set ups at 3 different Temperatures. Not 3 way fridges, as in 12v, AC, and Gas power.

    FM-62DZ Whynter Vs SnoMaster EX67D

    No, As pointed out already, Engel or ARB are the way to go, I am just finishing a 3 way Fridge Shootout and you won't believe the power that the Snomaster Chews up, I have been testing them for about 3 or 4 weeks and I am trying to find the person I hate most so I can Give them this Snomaster...

    New Generator - Thoughts on size, make, model

    Well John I look at it this way, Using a battery as the primary power source is cheap insurance and it is a set and forget setup and when coupled with a good 20/30Ah Charger via a Generator even a cheap one will have the batteries topped up within 4 or 5 hours if the battery/s are down to about...

    New Generator - Thoughts on size, make, model

    My Point is that people should be aware of the pit falls of what Can, Does and might happen when connecting a fridge in to a Generator, It is a warning and nothing more, Those who choose to do so then more power to them and fingers crossed and I hope it all goes well, Just for peace of mind in...

    Yes that's right, Warrior Winches were previously Branded "Champion" back around 2012 but for some reason had to change there name, I like how they have an OTT build quality and are very robust. and the fact they were fitted to certain Military vehicles was why I bought them, But I only bought...

    Inexpensive vs. Expensive Winch

    Well like I said All brands have failures but even cheap brands can be good solid units, The Warn Evo is made in China but that does not make it any lesser Winch than the US made models, As Andy ( WARN ) pointed out they undergo the same QC rigorous testing, (y)
