RE: Solar Solution Adequate?

Hi obiwancanoli, I suggest an inexpensive ammeter, or amp-hour counter.

RE: Help me decide, take it or leave it

Hi Johnnybgood, Washing the roof, unless there is some significant reason, may simply shorten the life span.

RE: Help me decide, take it or leave it

I toured the triple E factory in 2004. It was a quality place. Does this one have metal studs in the walls or are they wood? If metal, I'd say "go for it".

RE: Solar experts....Matching solar panels help needed.

pirlbeck, Make sure the switch is DC rated. Looking for a DPST switch. Del City DPST switch Would something like this be robust enough to be safely used?

RE: Boon docking/Dry camping in N.E. Texas

Hi, This may help: https://freecampsites.net/#!Texas&query=region Looking for ideas where I can dry camp/boondock with my 32 ft fifth wheel. It seems like any state park sites without hookups are only large enough for a tent. My wife ok'd the purchase of a generator, so I would like some places to try it out. We definiely will be using it for some NASCAR races, and at a friend's deer lease, but I was thinking that there has got to be some places where we could go, especially during the holidays, when all the popular places fill up.

RE: Class C, OWNERS ONLY PLEASE American or Foreign Chasses

D.E.Bishop, I love lazydaze class c units. They are also factory direct. http://www.lazydaze.com/index.htm They have no slides. Perfect for my cold weather.

RE: Having trouble understanding GFCI problem

Hi, Tonight I'm having to use the generator as the GFCI is popping due to wet snow. What a pain!

RE: Use 24v Batteries to run 12v System... Possible?

There are attributes to both 6 and 12 volt. 6 volt wins on thicker plates and on cell count. 12 volt wins on ability to power a LARGE inverter, and on resistance. Six volt Golf cart jars are cheaper per amp-hour than deep cycle 12 volt units. The ultimate battery bank would be six two volt cells with an amp-hour capacity of 800. Any reasonable voltage battery can be made to work well in an RV.

RE: Having trouble understanding GFCI problem

My point is we need to always treat an electrical connection with respect. GFCI can and do fail. I never assume a circuit is not live. And yes, I've had a shock or two in my life. If it is raining I plug in wearing rubber boots and silicone gloves. As well I "shuffle" (drag your feet across the ground) as I'm moving to and from the pedestal. If there is water on the ground I prop up the cord to keep it from being submerged. I'm at a location at the moment where the GFCI prevents me from using the Magnum Inverter charger. So it is back to the OEM converter. It is a pain in the neck not having the load support feature. What is maddening is the Magnum works with some GFCI outlets, but NOT all.

RE: Having trouble understanding GFCI problem

Hmmmm, How about daisy chaining. Plug in just one RV then go from #1 to #2 and from #2 to #3 with the outside plugs?

RE: Having trouble understanding GFCI problem

50 + 90 + 325 is not going to overload a 20 amp circuit (2400 watts) We got along just fine for a hundred years without GFCI.

Phil, Well said on the costs of diesel and in particular the Sprinter.

RE: Beaver Patriot house batteries

dougrainer, There are several firms that produce a L-16 jar. For example Universal and Trojan.

RE: Solar experts....Matching solar panels help needed.

Make that at least 3 types: amorphous, poly, mono There are just two types, mono and poly.

He would be better off with the Grape controller, if he goes for PWM.

RE: Solar experts....Matching solar panels help needed.

Hi, In series match the amperage. In parallel match the voltage.
