RE: 48v system

Same panel-battery voltage solar is more efficient than bucking so part of the advantage would be to use a 48v controller with the array done up as 48v too.That's what I thought. From what I read, 48v inverters are more efficient too. I don't know if it's significant, but some. My array is around 90vdc. Outback controller will handle it just fine.

RE: Turning onto 15 degree sideroad - Can it be done ?

..is going upward at 15 degrees, i.e. it's also nice and flat, but our entire road (about 600') intersects the main road at 15 degrees.Where did you get the 15° information?

RE: 48v system

I'm deciding between the Cotek and the Outback inverter. That Outback is a monster unit! Cotek looks a lot like Samlex, which I have now, and it occasionally will shut down at 28.6v, which it's not supposed to do. Some of the websites I find say that chargers can be seriesed. At this point not sure, but there are certainly plenty of 48v golf cart chargers.

48v system

Just for kicks I'm going to upgrade to a 48v system this winter. I love smaller wiring! It'll be 8- 12v AGMs in series-parallel. I'd rather go 8 -6v but these AGMs are still pretty new. I considered 36v, but 48 seems to have more products available. I may consider running 2 -24v IOTA chargers in series. I'll probably need a new DC-DC converter for the 12v stuff as I asked Victron about running two of the 24v models in series. They said no. Curious if I'll get any better performance over 24v.

RE: Walmart camping

When I see it, I can only think of the book "G****s Of Wrath," by John Steinbeck. Too funny what this board's cuss filter does.

RE: Hotspot Overage

.. but the internet is not free. You do have to pay your ISP (Internet Service Provider)That's why the word free is in a single quote.

RE: Hotspot Overage

Oh oh. I guess I'd better stop recording everything I watch so I can blast past the commercials :)When I use cm skip, it doesn't just go 30 seconds ahead, it shows the ad in high speed. Sometimes I actually will go back and view it as some are pretty entertaining. I think the advertisers are probably ok with that.

RE: fridge sensor up or down for colder?

Just for fun, look at the inside wall of the refer and see if there's a sticker that says which way to move it.

RE: Looking for No-Tell motel

I'd be interested in what the OP thinks a no-tell motel is. He asked about this in June also.

RE: Hot in the NW!

It's going to be HOT, and smoky in E WA. Evidently yet another fire near Chelan, and all the smoke comes here. It's nasty.

RE: That accident sway video ... question

It's a bit hard to see what the driver is doing, but it's possible he (or she) is 'correcting' by steering which is only making it worse.
