RE: Solid State storage Disc ...

Depending on how photo happy you are, on the low end is a 2 disk raid 1, the high end a NAS on raid 5 or 6. raid 5 has more useable space (wastes 1 disk), and can take a single disk failure with all data intact, raid 6 (wastes 2 disks) and can take a double disk failure with all data intact. I run 2 4tb disks in raid 1 for my 7D, at work I run a 8 disk raid 6 for security of the data.

RE: 4800lbs trailer verse 3800lbs trailer

First, make sure the tires are all aired up, second slow down. There is nothing - short of a tent - that will pay for its self in a reasonable period.

RE: Generator gone!

I got a Costco inverter generator just for the trip to Pismo. I didn't want my Honda 3k sitting in the salt air, or someone else's pickup.

RE: Lowering 2 inches w/o lowering tow capacity

If the shackles are in tension, longer shackles will lower the van, effecting little else. If the axle is under the spring, and there is clearance in the wheel wells, moving the axle above the spring would lower the rear the height of the axle + the height of the spring pack. A third option would be pulling some leafs out and replacing them with airbags.

RE: Too much voltage from bedroom 12v cigarette lighter port??

Is the polarity backward? That would explain smoking things. Unless there is a second power supply, it is near impossible to have a higher voltage at this socket then the rest.

RE: Generators

Who not just parallel them with the Honda cables? You could run one, the other, or both depending on load - as in alternate them most of the time to even out the maintance or to refuel, fire up both for the AC.

RE: My weights.. (note steer axle)

You are fine, leave it alone. Passengers, carry on baggage, and whatever is in the bed in front of the axles will add to the front axle.

RE: What to you mount your inverter on?

Mine is mounted on the aluminum 2x2?'s in the basement. I have several inches on all sides, fyi they run HOT under full load.

RE: AGM batteries in my 5th wheel

My agm's are designed for 5c max charging VS c/10 to c/20 in most flooded batteries. In my case with 3 85 AH batteries, that is a max of ~1250 amps. My inverter charger tops out at 150-160 amps, not even closer to causing them to off gas. zero maintance, ever. Surge capacity to start an AC unit off the inverter, while running the other loads.

RE: 110psi tire question...

I run sidewall max, From my days as an OTR driver, everything gets set to sidewall max every PTI. The single biggest tire issue out there is underinflated tires - which causes them to be overloaded while under their rated load - leading to failures. I can't think of the last time a non recap tire failed without hitting something when aired up properly.

RE: Link For ONE HUNDRED AMPERE DC/DC Solid State Relay

I have used SSR's (usually crydom) for many projects, usually when I need minimal switching power IE a battery device switching something with it own power supply. Or optical isolation of the switch, or insanely high switch speed / durability. For general switching in rv's I tend to use relays. For example SSR's have a .5 to .75 volt drop across them, hence the need for a heatsink several times their size. At high loads, what you save on switching current, you loose on load voltage.

RE: My Rogue Wave install...

What antenna are you using? I got a 15 db onmi, but it is 3.5 feet long, far to big to mount to the tv antenna.. I am working on another way to tip it up and lay it down..For crank up TV antennas the Rogue can be flat when it's down by mounting on the arm. I was referring to the added weight and length making the antenna hard to crank up (leverage).

RE: Home Depot Credit Card Breach! Bigger Than Target? [UPDATE]

Sounds like it is time to "loose" the favorite credit card to the shredder, and have a new one issued... again...

RE: What do you carry for a jack?

I have a HF 20 ton Air Hydraulic Bottle Jack on the trailer. Both the truck and trailer have on board air. It is nice to flick a switch, shove the jack under the frame, attach the air line, squeeze the air valve and watch the jack do all the work.

RE: update surge tank installed..remember freeze out plugs

Can you access the hole from the inside? If you can fit your hand inside the tank, maybe a small SS screw with a rubber washer on the inside and a nut on the outside.
