    Which power supply for Riden RD6018

    Thanks for your help @Just John I ordered the RD6018 with the 1000 watt PS I had watched Jerry Walker videos but they pertained to the RD6012. I was unsure if the 1000 watt would fit in the case. We shall see.

    Bookmarking a post (not a thread)

    At times we may want to save a reference to a post on multi page thread. At the post number in the upper right corner there is a bookmark flag that changes colour when you click on it. Where do you go to recall these bookmarks. They are not part of the browser bookmarks that I can see.

    Shipping container design

    Have a look at Rapid Wall skirting material. It comes in 12' X 4' pieces. It is 2" foam bonded to a tough plastic layer. I have whaled on it with a carpenters hammer and hardly made a mark on it. It cuts easily with a saw.

    Xuba Electronics: DEAL - 280AH LiFePo4 cells. Purchase & Review

    Perhaps if people were more aware of the culture of other countries there would be less frustration when ordering. I knew of the holiday and the business shut downs.
