RE: What has Trojan done ?

Nobody's advocating new batteries, but these are major changes to a battery spec. that as Mex points out, who's chemistry hasn't changed.

What has Trojan done ?

Just printed the T-145 data sheet from the company website to verify my Magnum charge params and noticed a little change.. From my .pdf published in 2015: Bulk: 13.8 Float: 13.2 Eq: 15.5 And today.. This is straight from the Trojan website: Bulk: 14.82 Float: 13.5 Eq: 16.2 ! That's a +1.2V difference on Bulk, and +.7v boost on Eq ! I can't get there on the Magnum even if I wanted to. This HAS to be a misprint (right?). But why did they edit a document already published? Where's Mex ?

RE: ? TV Rodent Repellant LEDs?

I read somewhere that someone had put LED lights to light up under the hood for that purpose and they said it worked. 3rd hand info for what that's worth.Those were just courtesy lights...

RE: ARP Technical Presentation in Quartzsite

The ARP controller closely regulates boiler temperature-- something no OE absorption refrigerator maker does. And, overheated boilers is the #1 cause of absorption refrigerator performance reduction and failure.Its amazing that for the price of these things that they don't have a device like this or just install the ARP as OEM. I like Paul... He had a few failures, figured out why and engineered his way out of a problem

RE: neat way of adding more solar

Outstanding! Add a linear arm to that and done. The only nitpick I'd have with that install is that he needs to get the panel further out to avoid possible shadowing of the whole lower side of the lower panel

ARP Technical Presentation in Quartzsite

In talking to Paul Umack from ARP the other day, he mentioned that they are going to be in Quartzsite this year and will likely do at least one technical presentation/ lecture on the ARP device, what it does, what it can't do, and what happens to a fridge when it overheats (as opposed to catching fire, this is also a safety shutdown for that). This will be with one of the iRV2 groups and I'll post time and place here when it's all nailed down. Should be interesting. And for those below asking what it is, read THIS

RE: increased insulation for refrigerator

At least you had insulation to replace.. :) To the above post: it's always better to PULL air OUT than PUSH it IN. That creates turbulence and dead spots, sometimes where you don't want them. Best option: install them on top in the exhaust vent

RE: Winnebago RV house batteries

Always better to be dumb than have to spend another $500 needlessly. One wears off and the other smarts for awhile. Do yourself a favor and install an LED around that switch so you can see if it was bumped. Or go back to the shop for a 206 ignition switch shield :)

RE: Winnebago RV house batteries

Depends on how you define disconnect :)

RE: Winnebago RV house batteries

Wait! ... Are you SURE they are dead? You mention the on board volt meter, and the way you describe all this sounds like you have the house main disconnect Off. Have you looked AT the batteries with a DVM ? Also, that switch is located by the door IIRC. I have a persnickety switch in the same place because of the door being open when at the beach where it simply doesn't work until it's exercised several times. If the batteries really are dead they will never be "OK" after being 100% discharged.

RE: Your First Class A

You are starting to get into the early 2000's DP's at that price and ought to do pretty well. Diesels are just getting broken in when a gas is at end of life. You get a way more robust and likely stronger generator as well. Bus or truck chassis million mile chassis vs. whatever gas is on these days, and the list goes on. Once you get inside the interiors are close to the same Don't forget about weight capacity. A BIG DEAL when FT

RE: brighter lighting for my MH

Sure they do. If you're that sensitive to CRI, then you need to find LEDs that publish that spec. ALL TV production, and a large number of film crews are now ALL LED as allot of art museums. I can't imagine anything more critical on the CRI index than these two professions.

RE: Brighter porch light

I mentioned Greg being in Q after looking at your location (reasonably close). As mentioned, Greg will be out there with all his products I'm sure.

RE: $50 Christmas Gift

Newsflash: When it comes to funding and operating a full power, nationwide TV Broadcast network such as PBS, $8bil over 36 years is NOTHING. That's a shade over $200,000,000, hardly enough to finance the entire network, staff, and buy (commercial free) programming. He!!, the power bill alone on just one of my transmitter plants hovers around $36k/mo. If you think you deserve free and open access to anything that says PBS, you better start looking for more foundation grants because the government has been threatening to defund PBS for years. Now back to the Xmas presents...

RE: camper styling in america 2017

If you want to go CAMPING, buy a tent, toss it in the back of your truck, have a beer, and quit worrying about what others want or drive. Personally I like my condo on wheels

RE: $50 Christmas Gift

It's amazing that people will argue about anything around here... Just drop it.. Geeeze OP: THIS LITTLE GADGET is really handy for anyone with an RV and there's $$ left over for a friggin gift card. It's a good way to prep for Dutchmans idea in the fridge too.

RE: Brighter porch light

It's not the fixture it's the LED you install in it. The best and brightest LED I've seen for this service is the Starlights Revolution line. Install one of these with an Amber lens and you will have no more complaints. As much as I like my Starlights fixture, I would recommend you look at the RV LED Lites fixtures. Greg Wilson started Starlites many years ago and designed all their fixtures and most of the purpose built LEDs like the Revolution. He sold the company a few years ago and started RV LED Lites and has continued on with a whole new line of products including improved external fixtures. I'm sure he'll be in Quartzsite again this year if you want to go listen to him talk about his products. Greg is a design engineer not just a resale vendor. This is HIS stuff..

RE: What do you wish you bought sooner?

A complete change out of every lamp in the coach to LED. It does nothing but pay you back.
