RE: Lots of loud power, cheap

For that price it would be like living on a tarmac.

RE: Solar Expert Component Review Requested

What battery configuration? As to the inverter, 12v @ 3000w (should you ever need that much) is a whopping lot of amps.

RE: Tornado Warning

My experience is that they get so many tornado warnings they ignore them.

RE: LIthium battery upgrade - Complete!

I believe RELiON and Smart battery to be exactly the same thing, down to the rope handles.Throw Nexgen in there too.

RE: LIthium battery upgrade - Complete!

And 2ndly, why do it that way ?Because Li batteries don't seem to like being charged in a series string. I'm wondering if I can properly charge each 12v battery as I've described.

RE: There's no such thing as privacy anymore

toss the cell phone and pay cash and you can be as private as you wish, as long we can still use cash, which just may not be all that long now.I don't think that's a reasonable solution.

RE: LIthium battery upgrade - Complete!

Is it possible to have 8 wires coming from one solar controller, connecting 2 wires to each of 4 12v batteries?

RE: There's no such thing as privacy anymore

My Hotmail inbox often gets flooded with junk mail because of some inquiry I may have made with one company. All I can do is delete all the junk mail one by one.Gmail does a really good job of sending spam to a spam folder. All the solicitations I get have an 'unsubscribe' option. Use it.

RE: Battery Question: 6V vs 12V

Then 4 batteries is a good choice for dry camping. I just thought being able to lay the batteries down would be a good idea for you. Yeah, they cost more, but there's zero maintenance. Camp on!

RE: Wiser by ShowerMiser

I wait maybe 5 seconds to get HOT water. I guess it's a good idea if you wait until shower time to turn on your water heater. That's a joke.

RE: LIthium battery upgrade - Complete!

I was planning on 4 -12v in series, but after speaking with Relion, and others, that may not be a good move. Balancing is apparently a problem when charging across 4 batteries at 57v, which my solar is. I'm assuming charging 12v in parallel is fine. They said they're redesigning their 48v battery. I think I'll wait and see what comes of that. On a general note, I would think more RVs would be rethinking the 12v systems given that big inverters require that huge wire, which is a real pain. Here's something I didn't know (from Relion): " If you size your system to discharge 50% each cycle you will not see balancing issues. If your system is set to 100% DOD per cycle you will more than likely see an issue faster. "

RE: Battery Question: 6V vs 12V

No, I do not do a lot of dry camping. I hardly ever dry camp. .... I am trying to find true deep cycle batteries that will fit in there.You can get rid of the battery watering and the corrosion if you get just one AGM. That's all you need, and will 'save' you the money you're going to spend on 4, which you don't need. AGMs can be laid down on their sides...or any position which suits your height requirements. Cool huh?

It won't give you more capacity.

RE: pros & cons of waste pumps with macerators

I can use the macerator for that purpose as well by offloading macerated content into portable containers sitting in the back of the truck,In addition to this use, I'm currently in a FH site with the hookups on the opposite side. I don't have 50' of sewer hose, but I do have garden hose and a macerator.
