RE: Slabs and other sorrows

Is the water off for lack of resource or to discourage visitors?

RE: palm springs CA area

This might be a bit rustic for your description but we drop in a couple times each year. http://samsfamilyspa.com/ In Desert Hot Springs across the highway from PS. Hot pools with no chlorine is the best part.

RE: High Voltage DC Switch Source for Solar

I prefer the idea of disconnecting both wires. Any of the three are fine although with Midnight Solar I would install two breakers for full disconnect. I wish there was something more compact.

RE: Battery Charging

I do hope the GC2 were tip top 100% charged and disconnected for storage.

RE: Battery Charging

WFCO is notorious for not switching to boost mode when expected. You need to verify but I think you will be using the portable along with the WFCO. If spending money replace the WFCO. +1 for solar.

RE: Advice welcome for Newbie

Any advice on how to do all this would be greatl appreciate.Move to the LLC state and conduct your business. It is not a big deal if it is legit business not just for tax avoidance.

RE: quality gone down hill.

rv builders have one goal. profit. And consumers want lowest price at any cost. The cost is low quality. Builders build what consumers demand.

RE: Battery Charging

You need 40+ amps AND 14.4+ volts on the battery. Try each and see what you get. Or post model numbers for best answers.

RE: Charging Problem

IMO that fixed voltage converter is worth replacing even if working fine. http://www.bestconverter.com/assets/images/Progressive_Dynamics/pd4600.jpg width=400

RE: Running Hot

Did you check the core rows were the same number? Did all fan shrouds etc get properly reinstalled? Did you verify coolant level?

RE: Best Shocks?

I put Bills on my little truck at 100,000 and found no improvement over the OEM. So either OEM is very good or Bilstein is weak IMO. Next set will be KYB Monomax as I REALLY liked the KYB Gas Adjust on my old mustang.

RE: 12v inverter draw on batteries with microwave

Set the inverter up right or use propane. Sure the alternator will help but you are just skirting the rules. There was life before microwaves.

I also like my FF. One is more than adequate for me. Mine is in the bathroom and used to move air out only.

RE: 600 watt pure sine wave inverter

I chose GoPower for lowest idle draw and provision for a remote power switch.

RE: Furnace BTUs 18 vs 30

18 btu is probably output and 30 btu is probably input or burner rating. Get the model numbers and check the actual specs. Either should keep you comfortable down close to zero. I would far prefer direct heat pads on the tanks to the passive furnace heat. As it gets that cold you will be plugged in or running a generator near 24/7.

RE: credit card limit

It depends on the station. I use one card for fuel. Some pumps stop at $75 and some at $125. If I need more, I just run it again.If I am cut off that is all they get. I go down the road to swipe again.

RE: 12v inverter draw on batteries with microwave

160 amps to start and climb to 175 amps as the battery voltage drops. This is why you need four plus batteries. Small group 24 you should have six or more. Good luck running 15 minutes on the pair.

RE: Ford, GM and Chrysler cash in on posh pickups

RE: Difficult to find RV Bed Sheets

Google "custom bed sheets" They will make ANY size, shape and thread count.
