RE: Ford recall

Everyone knows MOPAR stands for Makes Output Power Only Rarely.

RE: Honda 1000 + Extended Tank??

Probably not a good idea to run a Honda Eu1000i for extended lengths of time, it has an aluminum bore cylinder. Get a Honda EU2000i instead, it has a steel bore cylinder and will last much longer than 600 hours, the rated life of the aluminum bored EU1000i, if run hard.

RE: GEL versus AGM

I can set the voltage at 14.4V on my surplus acid Telecom 150 AH AGM battery, it weighs 105 pounds, with very, very thick heavy lead plates, and the max amount of amps I have ever seen it take was 21 amps. That's all she wrote. So I don't push it. Charges great and magnificently with a 150W solar panel and charge controller set at 14.4V at the terminals. Gets 20 amps in the morning every 5 or 6 days at 14.4, for a couple of hours on the generator, to top charge it. This is not the kind of battery you run a big inverter off of, keep the discharge rate low on this surplus Telecom battery.

RE: Voltage vs. PWM controller & wire size

I don't see any Sony 208W solar panels. I do see a Sharpe 208W solar panel, but they were phased out of 2007. So your used panels are at least 8 years old, maybe more. You might be getting 90% of the rated wattage at their advanced age, if they've been mounted that long 8-10 years. Good luck on getting 50c a watt for your used panels.

RE: Voltage vs. PWM controller & wire size

OP Run your microwave and AC unit off of a 120V generator capable of 3000 watts. Or a pair of Honda Eu2000i generators and a pairing cable. Run your battery recharging off of your solar panels. You can get full benefits amperage wise, off of your 24V existing panels if you buy a true MPPT charge controller. Otherwise, it sounds like getting 12V panels and any needs under 360 watts of solar panel can be easily handled on your roof by a PWM charge controller.

RE: Best way to charge batteries when Boondocking?

Place a good 3 stage charger adjacent to the batteries and plug it into 120V. This, and make sure the 3 stage charger puts out 14.8V in bulk mode, if you have a lead acid battery.

RE: Generac IQ2000 (Long winded report)

received my 2 honda's yesterday.Guy delivering them kept questioning why I needed 2 HAHA had to explain paralleling them to him. Ran them in the driveway for about 20 minutes on high then out to the trailer. Hooked them all up and turned on the AC. It was 82 in the trailer. AC came right on and I let them go for a couple of hours. Came back out and the trailer was down to 74!! Seems like they are working just fine to me huh?!?! Love my new Honda's Chris Once your AC is fired up, put both generators in Eco mode, and listen to them loaf along, nice and easy, no problem. Even with both in Eco mode, the AC will start right back up with the AC having full head pressure on the freon inside. Been there, done that, many a time with my pair.

RE: Mexico Wanderer Thread

That's It! The UPS Store #0250 Chula Vista, CA 91910 The UPS Store. 591 TELEGRAPH CANYON RD CHULA VISTA, CA 91910. (619) 482-0123; (619) 482-0345; store0250@theupsstore.com Just saying, if I wanted to send Mex something to the address, is there a name that should be used or will "Mexico Wanderer" work? Maybe this is better handled through a PM, I don't want to bust anyone's cover,lol. I think if you address it "Rough Diamond" Dave E... He'd get it. "Pinche gringo" Dave E might work, too. I know the customs guys feel that way about him, that he's dumping more electronic trash in Mexico. :B

RE: tips for 1st timer

Your refrig on propane and the CO alarm and radio will drain 24 amps out of that 75 amp battery in 24 hours. You should never go below 50% SOC on your battery So you will need to recharge the battery first thing in the morning, for an hour and in the evening, for an hour, Saturday night. Get yourself a real 14.8V capable manual battery charger that is 30 amp capable if you only want to run the gen for an hour. Run it again for a half hour before attaching to hitch. Also while running your jack at the tongue. Once jack tongue is on the hitch, shut off the generator and disconnect the 30 amp charger. Take 2 walks around your trailer, look at roof, antenna, everything inside and outside, that things are in place, can't move while driving, and that all lights and fans and heaters, propane, etc, are shut off. Battery needs to stay connected while driving to run the electric brakes on the trailer.

RE: Mexico Wanderer Thread

Bus is no longer cheap. Crossing the border standing hours in line, then n the other side, 2-1/2 hour three transfer bus ride or pay taxi another $20.00 Then I have to go many miles to pick up medicines. If Dr. refers me to a specialist or lab I'm screwed. $60/night cheapest hotel. Bus fare $200 round trip to border. And I need to buy clothes. No 1X or 2X down here. None. Ooooooooo thanks to SCVJeff I have dozens of hours of music to listen to. No more local radio narco ballads that remind me of a coyote ------- on an electric fence. I hope scv jeff sent you mp3 music files, not ACC apple files, he's an Apple type of guy.

RE: More confusion for Inverters?

I'd get one of two things, either a pig heavy Honda Eu3000i, or a pair of Honda Eu2000i's with pairing wires, to run your A/C unit.

RE: Mexico Wanderer Thread

I assume Sharps is a Navy military hospital in San Diego or suburbs? Anyone want to run down and drag his smart A$$ up here sooner from deep in Mexico, to that hospital in San Diego?

RE: Mexico Wanderer Thread

Just got an update: "The cheap-o-watt saved me and that's no BS. I stumbled into the kitchen toward the door and saw it sitting on the table connected. I sat in the chair flipped the power cord switch on. Lifted my right bare foot off the cement floor grabbed a hold of the formica table with my right hand. Stuck my 2nd finger into where it's marked "line", and got one hell of a jolt. Left hand left foot passes directly through the heart. Big thud from my chest hurt like hell. Sat in the chair and started to feel better. Returned to bedroom and found pulse at 49 and rising. At 5:30 it was at 62 and steady. Slept until 11AM. Pulse and BP normal. I am still in shock. No facilities for 200 miles. F*ck this. I am going to Sharps first thing on the fourth. Experiencing this was not fun."

RE: Generac IQ2000 (Long winded report)

Honda engineers in a lot of what is known as "overhead" for surge capacity. That's why it has almost 100cc's instead of 80. It's why it performs the way it does when you add a heavy load to the generator, no substitute for more cc's or cubic inches.
