RE: Connecting inverter to shore power cord

Sounds like it. They're usually on their own breaker, or share with something like the fridge, but it sounds like more rewiring is in your future.

RE: Raspberry Pi, AirPlay, and dry camping

Sounds like fun to me, but I'm different. Like reading on the RPi, and people's projects. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Generator Grounding

westend, Thanks for the link. If I read it right most portable generator powered RVs out there are running without the neutral/ground bond required by the NEC. Without this bond, a failed appliance can put line voltage to it's safety ground and that voltage will then be applied to the frame and skin of the RV without tripping the circuit breaker. In that case, anyone touching the RV while in electrical contact with the earth would be subject to electrical flow depending on their particular body resistance. Not a good idea. I think I'll make up one of the neutral/ground bonding plugs he shows in the article. Re-read the linked article. It has nothing to do with floating Neutral, NEC requirements, or the purpose of the N/G bonding jumper. Re-read.

RE: Pobrecitos Canadienses

100 watt panel for $500. Seems pretty close to Mexs' math.

RE: Roll Call 2015 On The Road

Can anyone report what the roads thru Banff and Icefields parkway is ? Few frost heaves, plenty of potholes. Consider it a warm-up for further North. It's a reduced speed stretch of road, so take your time, and enjoy the sights.

RE: Dealing with SAE roof connector in factory solar wiring

Goobered it over with self leveling sealant, and used heavier wire from the roof to the charge controller. The current rating of the SAE connector is pitiful, as was the wire size in the walls.

RE: Roll Call 2015 On The Road

I don't know about "breaking trail", we've been seeing Southern plates for over a month in Grande Prairie, AB.

RE: generac generators

Good units when they run, but a pain to source parts for. A few bits are common with Onan, a few with Honda, and even a few with Briggs & Stratton. It's all up to you to do the cross-referencing of part numbers, usually. Most of the time the parts guys won't take the time to cross sell.

RE: battery vent box

Contact your local battery store.

RE: Clearance lights regulation

Lighting requirements. Click on the unit most closely matching your unit to see a detailed list of lights.

RE: Solar Finally

I'm looking at this as well. Since I have no knowledge, do you run it directly to the battery compartment when using it? You can get them with or without a built in charge controller. If you have the controller all you have to do is put the clips on the battery. The leads will be about 15 feet long. I have 2 of them without controllers that feed into a 30 watt pwm. Waiting to take the rig out and give them a try. I riggged up a 50 foot cable out of some wire that I have had for a while. THis lets me park in the shade and put the solar panels in the sun. In direct sunlight I was getting 21.5 volts and 11.3 amps at the end of the cable. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y137/flamingcanvas/100_1514.jpg Please do us all a favour, and use the proper cable connectors. There's a reason the NEC has different specs for different voltages.

RE: Help!!! It's hot and have electrical issues :)

If they've been overloaded, either of them, they need to be shut off to clear the fault. Once stopped, restart.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Heads up to the early birds. It's been just above freezing today (May 05) in Grande Prairie, AB and predictions are for below freezing temps overnight for the next 4 or 5 nights. The provincial parks are still closed, for the most part. Time to look for space in a commercial park, to keep the furnace firing, or have the genny fueled and ready to go. That furnace can be a battery eater.

RE: Solar tilt/brackets

Not RJ, but I used Nutserts for a knob with male threads. I've also used a bolt, held in place with a nut, and used a knob with a female thread on it.

RE: Solar tilt/brackets

I've made similar ones to RJ, but used a stainless steel T hinge. Cut down the long arm to the length you want the panel off the roof, add in the hardware, and have panel tilt in any axis.
