    We are trying, without much succes' to find working links and planning information for the Hungry Mother fiberglass rally.

    What are we doing wrong?

    Hey Walt.
    It's Brad Kay. I was lurking around and came across a post you made to someone and thought I would butt in. Been wondering how you have been doing through all this Covid mess. Hope you are well and continue to stay that way. Rosalind and I have been hunkered down in Marietta for a while. Hope to become mobile again soon. No issues with Covid thus far and do not anticipate any. we are well. Was suppose to be at the Townsend rally this week but decided it may be best to not go on the road quite yet.
    Hang tuff and play safe.

    noticed you had both a Bigfoot and a Escape. My wife and I are debating between those 2 and an Oliver for traveling to Texas from Northern Virginia a couple times a year to avoid the cold. We originally were looking at a Casita Independence 17' but it seemed a bit small.

    We have also read that the Bigfoot, Escape and Oliver are warmer. Have you everwritten a comparative (camparative?) evaluation from your personal point of view that we could read.

    We noticed that your signature says SW Virginia. I went to Virgnia Tech in the 60's thru 72 to get my now retired civil engineering degree.

    Walk in His Peace,

    I've had the 21 since August 17th. Been hanging around the northwest until Arizona cools off. I'm slowly heading that way now...

    I believe the SAE connector that Zamp uses is rated at 15 amps. I used it with a 160 watt panel that hits 8.5 amps on a good day, and it held up OK. I had more of a problem with it loosening up after many plug & unplugging. I crimped it with a pair of pliers, and it was still going when I sold the trailer.

    I'd love to find a 25 - 30 amp, high quality waterproof 12V connector that includes a panel mount version, but as yet, haven't found one.

    Thanks for reaching out here !
    I think mods can be a very good thing to improve the comfort and quality of the trailer !
    I feel like the trailer does need some '' up dating '' will likely get a solar panel at some point.
    For the now we are not wasting time and just camping with it ! Did a partial clean yesterday and though we want to improve or update we don't know what to tackle.
    Wheels have been greased, today I will look at the batteries.
    Wondering what the 24 things you have tackled ?
