RE: LEDs for my Class A

And squint you will with LED'sYou must've bought some crappy LED's which is not hard to do IMO. There are good one's and lots of posts in the Tech Issues forum on where to get them. LEDTrailerlights.com and Commandelectronics.com are two.

RE: Solar Panels: Mono vs Poly

There are dip switches on the 20A Rogue. I'd skip the display and get the data converter. If you don't want the data converter now, just roll with the dip switches.

RE: A new potential buyer, looking for insight.

timmac, No that's not me, I'm new here, but what the F does it matter any way? What is your point? I'm looking for help on intelligent suggestions for what I want, guess your not much use for that. Really!A couple have mentioned it sort of but you won't find the modern look in a Class A unless you get a custom Prevost or Newell and those are a LOT more than $250k. New Horizons RV DOES makes custom 5th wheels. I would give them a call.

RE: PV solar system charging voltage low

Do you have the IQ4 module with your Iota? You need that for 3 stage charging.

RE: 12V Lithium Iron (LiFePo4)

I have one I use in my ATV (not Battery Tender can't remember the name). It seems to put up with my abuse of it more than my previous AGM's. By abuse I mean sitting in the yard without being charged up fully.

RE: Figuring Proper Fuse Size

I fail to see how a device designed to "accept" 30 amps can magically accept 10 times that but you guys seem to have this all figured out. Since I don't, I'm going to just do it my way.

RE: Have You Installed a Residential Fridge and Inverter in TT?

The OP could get away with a smaller Tripplite, even the 1000W should be able to start the fridge.Thanks for the correction on that. Good to know.

RE: Opinion on portable/fixed solar panel for our rv?

Places like http://www.onlinemetals.com/index.cfm?affiliate_id=604 will have aluminum angle in all sizes and will even cut it into short pieces for a nominal fee.Great info! Thanks much!

Great info! Thanks for the heads up.

RE: Have You Installed a Residential Fridge and Inverter in TT?

I would step down to the TL RV1012ULHW with just two batteries. Logistics of wiring are easier too and every post I read says 1000 watts is plenty. I thought 1500W was recommended?

RE: Have You Installed a Residential Fridge and Inverter in TT?

I would get 2 or 3 grp 27 12V batteries. That should be enough to keep the fridge running while traveling. BTW, I'd keep the converter as a backup if it's working good. You can just disconnect the 120V side. EDIT: GUYS!!!! He just needs this while driving (4-5 hrs) to his destination and that's full hookups. He doesn't need a huge battery bank. Hell, the fridge could probably stay cold for half that time without the inverter setup. To the OP, is the charge wire from the truck functioning?

RE: Figuring Proper Fuse Size

A while ago we had some threads about ISTR Xantrex saying in their manuals that you had to fuse to the battery shorting ?? I remember that sort of and someone explained very well why there should be a main battery fuse. My "inverter fuse" is actually near the batteries and is an ANL 60 amp. It was initially sized for the converter. If I get that 2000W inverter then I'll change the fuse to allow for that.

RE: Figuring Proper Fuse Size

Fuses protect the equipment and the wiring. Wiring can develop a short and you certainly want a fuse to protect it and the equipment.Fusing is for protecting wire. Regardless, this does not make any sense (at least not to me) if you have properly sized wire. In a 300W inverter, the max it draws is 30 amps from the batteries (maybe it can draw up to its surge rating IDK). If I have wiring that can accommodate 100-380 amps (this is my setup), how is a short going to do anything to the wire? If the equipment shorts internally, it has fuses and protection circuits to handle that. Not to mention, shorts ALWAYS lead to an open and usually in a short period (pun) of time because internal circuitry is not designed to run over its design parameters. I'd be more worried about the equipment catching fire than wiring melting.
