RE: Hill Climbing

I agree with you, driving a gas rig, particularly one with a high RPM engine such as the very good Ford V10 is VERY, VERY different than a large displacement, turbo, inter-cooled diesel with Allison transmission.Actually, my F450 was a 7.3L PSD.

RE: Hill Climbing

Downshifting before the hill is easier on the tranny.Would like more information on that one-- this is an Allison 3000 series. When you're already on a hill and your tranny needs to shift, that's more stress than anticipating the hill and shifting sans load. Kinda like downshifting a bicycle derailleur before a hill, because once you're on it, it's pretty hard. That said, perhaps the Allison etal are really good at shifting under load and it doesn't really matter. I remember my F450s tranny was not a smooth shift under load.

RE: Getting Rid of a Residential Refrigerator

we just got in the habit of running the genny in the morning for heavy loads.Yah.. there's no way I'm going outside in my jammies to start a generator for coffee! :) (Unless my batteries are sitting at 24.4,or 12.2 to everyone else)

RE: Getting Rid of a Residential Refrigerator

We do run our generator every morning at breakfast during high load like toaster, coffee maker and microwave .. We actually have an 800 watt system on the roof but about half of that is for our other stuff.With 800w I'd think you'd be able to run those items on battery/inverter.

RE: Caller Locator Technology?

, I was able to pull into a rest stop when this happened. When I called from my IPhone, the person answering told me that they failed to obtain my location, and what was the closest cross street? .I don't suppose they'd be able to handle your voicing/texting your coordinates to them.

RE: Microwave that a Honda EU1000i will run

If there were low draw MW's they wouldn't heat very fast. You're geting dangerously close to "use the propane" territory, like when someone asks about making coffee.

RE: Getting Rid of a Residential Refrigerator

My impression is that the primary reason that the mfrs are going to residential fridges is COST. That, and the fact that the vast majority of Class A buyers are not going to be dry camping.
