    The "What Did You Do To Your Pop-Up Truck Camper Today?" Thread!!!

    Ah, OK Many but not all the (hardside)campers I see pictured feature the quite common underbelly arrangement, which I can see would pretty sturdy, I know someone just toured some pretty sketchy roads in Europe and suffered fixings pulled through the bed, and not seen a UK camper fitted in any...

    The "What Did You Do To Your Pop-Up Truck Camper Today?" Thread!!!

    Can I ask out of interest, In terms of attaching the camper to vehicle, do you ALL use the same under chassis system where you chain down to essentially an outrigger in each corner, I ask because European campers seem to rely on fixings within the truck bed & so in turn they rely on the fix...

    10A controller capacity

    OK on a different tack, If i pair up the new panels to make 100W, tested their output with a multimeter and got 12V+ That would suggest the controller was either faulty/insufficent capacity, So either just buy a bigger one say 20A, Or, do i actually need a regulator for a 100W setup ?

    10A controller capacity

    Odd thing this I think, but yes tried variation of all three panels now, all work independently of one another, but not in any combination, switch only interrupts the positive cable and only there because somewhere I read you should never just 'plug in' a panel, they all came with their plugs...

    10A controller capacity

    Unable to find anyone on net experiencing this annoying problem with my solar set-up so thought I'd bother you guys instead of lurking here further: Been using a 40W panel which came complete with 10A controller, then added (as I happened to have) a smaller 20W panel...

    truck camper jacks...which type and how many?

    Neat idea that, In my case I have a slight incline on my drive and dare not risk it actually although I frequently see people making up wheeled dollies (together with legs installed for extra stability) whereas your idea seem a better and tidier job all round

    truck camper jacks...which type and how many?

    Like the scaffold wheels idea sounds possibly better than making a dolly to move

    RAW management

    Evidently you have a handle on this, The thing I keep thinking is, my pictures might be of some interest to someone beside myself, and I'd like the option to improve them the jurys still out on that one, Likely I might spring for an external HD and review this in a few months, Its catch 22...

    RAW management

    Bear with me just a bit more fella's If I want to store RAW for future editing then, can I store these files on picasa (as I do with JPEG) or must they stay on my hard drive, or can they be kept at Flikr or somewhere

    RAW management

    Oh dear, I don't suppose you could be a bit more specific My idea is: save a RAW of (mostly) everything for future tweaking as I get a better Mac, in the meantime have some smaller JPEG's for use posting and sharing am I on right track with this

    RAW management

    Forgive my newbie questions but RAW is a new world to me My Nikon also offers in 'format' the option to shoot in what it calls Raw: NEF+JPEG Basic which when I download to iphoto produces a pair of images side by side does this mean I have a RAW to meddle with beside a jpeg to mail? I bet I...
