    FMTV - 24/12 Converter instead of the Niehoff dual-voltage alternator?

    Been looking at those 12v converters/ battery equalizers too. Haven’t looked at the electrical diagrams to see where all the voltages go. Seems how the alternator and voltage regulator are pricey and near non existent on the regulator side of things. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Man...

    Shelter identity

    I watch his build on a regular basis. Granted some of the stuff he does or the way he does it might make you shake your head. Why? Personally I would have never thought of using tie down chains instead of the military cable tie down system. My take on it is a few things. 1. Basically show...
