RE: LIthium battery upgrade - Complete!

Hi 2old, Thanks for the depth of charge tidbit. I see that costco is selling double A and triple A LI cells now. The price was competitive with other small batteries. They are calling them Eneloop. They are claiming 2100 cycles. Enloops are Li? I've always thought they were typical 1.2V 2000 mah or thereabouts Ni MH? Li is usually 3.4 to 3.7V, of which nothing much in AAA or AA runs on, too high a voltage. Enloops

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

Yeah howdy.... The rain has blown through and replaced by wind. We had flowing water through the campsite for awhile. Had to switch from HD to SD because of the rain fades Sacreau bleu! What, only 480i? We got pounded again today with a bunch of rain and flooding in SFV and SCV.

RE: Fiat-Chrysler caught cheating on diesel emmissions

I wonder if the EPA still pursues this once the Trump admin takes over. The incoming EPA chief, Scott Pruitt, is not a big fan of the agency or their regulations. My thoughts exactly. The USA needs to get competitive again with the rest of the world, including manufacturing and pollution standards in 3rd world countries.

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

Yawn, this thread needs some input from some folks already in Q town.

RE: F 250 Tire load rating.

Larger diameter tires also slightly reduce your braking efficiency also. Leave your tires diameter and size stock, especially if you can't figure out all the effects it will have on the whole tow package and your safety, as well as others on the road.

RE: Sprinter radio and Navigation

Put a Magnadyne M1 radio back in. It's really futile to screw around with switching things around on german cars, period, from stock setups.

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

I know, we see a few groups down here, but I see all these group shots with 10-20 rigs in a circle. We've talked with some and they say they come every year, meet the same group and catch up. They do potlucks, central fire and do many things. Someone in the group has a toad or tow vehicle and help get everyone to shops, big tent or the stuff like the Quartzsite Yatch club and the senior center. I think there is a learning curve. I think this is a very accurate description, there is a learning curve.Theres a "center" for seniors ? Shucks, looking at the population out there it's gotta be the biggest one on the planet ... :) Jeez, Jeff, is it bed time for you, or are you actually getting up from a good nights rest? You have a few Q sunset pictures from last year that we can yawn about, worth posting up? My friend, Phil, of Phil's Mineral's, took this picture on Saturday evening, 40 miles East of the Q. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v374/grand_toots/IMG_0509_zpsjqp6wzyq.jpg

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

ah.. used to camp at Jumbo Rocks when I was a teenie-bopper What's going on up there? The crowds are all over the news National Parks had their 100 year Centennial in 2016. Whole lot of folks that come down here to snowbird to see Death Valley and Joshua Tree this time of year. Very busy when it's comfortable there, unlike the summer season when it's flat out blazing hot, no escape from the heat.

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

We always arrive at least a day early. If you have to drive through town on Friday afternoon/ sat morn it ain't no fun. The offramps look like the 405 at rush hour except it's all RV's. What's JT? Joshua Tree NP. That area you pass on your left when you get into Palm Desert. ;-)

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

Thanks SCVJeff. We are going to Rincon next week with retired co-workers. I hope to interest them in a trip to Quartzsite and Joshua Tree. The DW want to go if we go as a group this year.Record crowds at JT this week, should quiet down after New Years but suggest you arrive mid week, campsites might be limited. Will verify the record crowds at Joshua Tree. Went there Thursday to do a National Parks On The Air ham radio activation, and the line to leave the park at 3:30 pm was stupendously long.

RE: What has Trojan done ?

maybe you can NO longer appreciate satire, sarcasm, and metaphors we are not in a college lecture hall and battery chemistry and cost there of, can be a pretty dry subject Humor can go a long way in making it palpable to the audience and the teacher I guess you could say there is no "chemistry" between a few posters and MW. :)

RE: What has Trojan done ?

I believe my MegaWatt taps out at 15.6V. But my old manual 6 amp 12v Sears battery charger will do 16.3 if you let it. My observation on a Walmart group dc24 that I use with my 100w ham radio when portable, is that if the charger amp gauge drops from 6 amps down to 2 amps, the battery is fully charged, and I've probably hit 16.0 to 16.1V for a full equalization. I have confirmed this a few times now with the digital multi meter. When I wanted a top charge for storage of the batteries, the T-1275 was left to charge at 15.0V for an hour or so after it reached that voltage. Just to let things get stirred up inside. It would bubble very lightly, but water consumption was never an issue with my T-1275s. Amperage at that voltage for the 150 Ah battery was probably in the 3 to 4 amp range when finished.

Hmmm, refreshing this for 2017, maybe some folks will chime in on this winters activities.

RE: Where is everybody?

Meh, probably a pileup starting gradually to show up in Quartzsite, is my guess, if fuel stays cheap.
