Adding some Li Ion batteries to my AGM in parallel

I figured BFL13 would be able to provide me with a "how to" mix battery chemistries.

RE: How long should a charge last?

Disconnect the ground wire from the trailer to the battery when not in use. End of parasitic drain. Always disconnect.

RE: Stealth Camping or Layovering

Incognito overnighting. Says it all. If you don't understand it, ask the local LEO the best way to go about it, while offending nobody's senses. Stay there, for the night, with owner's approval. I should note that public streets are just that, public. Your registration fees, at least in CA, and sales taxes and road taxes on fuel pay for their upkeep and maintenance. But they are for driving on, parking on them is one of those gray areas best avoided. Overall, to me, the term "Stealth Camping" has a feel to it like you are trying to get something of value, for nothing, no fee at all. That right there, is symptomatic and problematic at the same time... nothing is free, you gotta pay to play, to park, probably you should pay also to overnight, since the land you are on has some sort of value, there generally should be a usage fee for benefiting using that land for any length of time. If we eliminated 50% of the population on this planet, would property values drop in half also? Something to think about, as this planet gets over populated.

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

Hey guys....I just reminded myself that I know a couple who attend the Ham outing at mile 99. If you know Duanne or Bobbi (in a brown winnabago) say hello from Dave & Lila...Thanks There were hundreds of RV's at mile 99 this year... a brown Winnie was far too vague, you'd need GPS coordinates to find them. LOL!

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

Well, I attended the ARRL Ham Radio Annual QuartzFest. It's on the south side of town, at mile marker 99, on the West side of the highway. I had a tremendous amount of fun attending the event, the seminars, the Pot Luck dinners, and the people. Q this year was unseasonably cold and windy, by all other standards and years I have been here. But I had simply the best time while I was here. I ALWAYS meet great people and characters down in this area that LOVE the outdoors, LOVE to CAMP, and love to share their interests with you, no matter how big or small your budget. Drooled over some Prevosts at the show, some of them with new owners. Had a 3 o'clock social hour with some folks where we were staying, and a pot luck dinner. But mostly, I just had A LOT of fun. As always, the Q is what you make of it. Go out there and get some of it, while the getting is good.

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

Met with the legendary SCVJeff, this afternoon, and his lovely wife. Been a cold windy week, this week. Good to see you, Jeff. Enjoy, it's supposed to warm up to low 70s, soon.

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

I used to be able to manage rocking just a T shirt out here, but this year, it been highs of mid to high 50s , and a breeze. Has me sporting a shirt a little heavier than in past years. Sunsets have been worth the chill to view outdoors

RE: (Yawn) Another day in Quartzsite

SCV Jeff, I may try to head out there on Tuesday or Wednesday, for the Quartzfest ARRL Ham Radio GTG.

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
