comment What are safe uses of non-potable water?
Agree with Rory. Tap water in most western countries is required to be acceptable for drinking, since it's also used for cooking. The bottled water they sell in supermarkets there is just a rip-off.

comment RV'ing in Canada - where can you stay to get facilities?
I'm sorry. Getting robbed at walmart is surely a more economic and interesting experience to recommend than staying at nice place... ಠ_ಠ

I have to disagree: Walmart car parks are possibly the worst places to stay overnight. link

comment What's a good way to generate solar electricity while driving?
@hippietrail: The engine might not "know" (and doesn't need to) via electronics how much energy is taken from the Alternator. However the more power you drain from the Alternator, the harder the engine has to work turning the Alternator, using more petrol. So yes, there is a (mechanical) feedback from the Alternator for the engine to work harder. I thought there was a physics.se to discus this very topic; no?

@Roy: this is plain wrong. The power from the Alternator is not "just there" but has to be generated by the engine first. The more power you take away, the harder the engine has to work. If your 90 Watts for a laptop power supply really make much difference at a 160kW Engine is another question :)
