Tim

So with the SOA, what size tires are you planning to run? Since the put the kaybosh on my offroad trailer buy idea it would seem that SOA on the popup might have to be my Option B plan

Well for now I'm running the same tires that were on it. actually doesn't look that bad, was really low before so now it's a more respectable height... I could probably go bigger but I think for now it's tall enough, not sure I'd benefit from bigger. we'll see how this trip goes.

And shoot, I just remembered I forgot to take pictures of my hillbilly dual battery setup. Guess you'll have to wait until Moab for that one.

Roger...Can't remember what size tires you have but if you're looking for slightly bigger, I got a set of lightly used tires I'd make you a great deal on trailer tires 4 sale

Bet you my dual battery setup is going to be more hillbilly than yours...One battery hooked up and when it goes dead, install the second in its place

Looks good Nakman. Jawbreaker on the stereo, the old punk band or have you started listening to Judas Priest? The mystery mod, am I supposed to guess? Antennas.

The camper is already taken down, Tom, sorry man.. not sure if it'll be up again next weekend. So for now, imagine a group 31 under one of the bench seats inside, actually behind the axle. Then two wires running under the camper to the front battery. The + connection is disconnected from the spare battery currently at the battery, and the + and - connections are not connected at the front battery, but they have some small bolts & nuts going through them in the front battery box, with some rubber boots around them for added protection.

When/if the front one goes down, I'll decide then to either join them at the front battery terminals, or just join the connections with the bolts and skip the front battery altogether. The front one is a group 27 marine battery (not a fancy dry cell) that was a blem from Hensley, $39? The backup is the big group 31 Deka Intimidator blem from the big group buy last fall.

If both of those go down, then 3rd in line is an Exide Orbital from the 80's second battery tray- I can then put the 27 marine in the 80 to charge while wheeling that day. And battery 4 would be the 80's red top, followed by a set of jumper cables.
