When I think of BlueBoy, I think of Big John Cannon's son from the High Chaparral. Getting one that is larger would require you to head over to the Ponderosa and get Ben Cartwright's son, Hoss.

Isn't that the whole point in getting out? If people would just learn to shut off their phones, and actually disconnect for a while, they would figure out that the world keeps on spinning, the sun keeps coming up and life goes on without them. Nobody needs to be online 24/7. I was 35-40 years old before I got my first cell phone. I shut it off every night and most weekends. It's never on when camping. It truly isn't a required for survival.

I use it for my internet connection to pay bills and check on the house. I don't really care for coffee shop hotspots most are very insecure..

Just finished mounting a second 12 volt battery/w box. Going to wire them parallel for extra capacity.

Is this the right place to ask if anyone else bought a 2017 Jayflight 212 Baja?

Thanks, Dave.

We're planning on hanging north until around the end of November then heading for the Yuma area for the winter.

Not sure as to how you wired them in parallel... but here is the correct way to wire them to better control the charging and discharging of the 2 batteries. Ignore the battery cutoff switch if you are not installing one.
