RE: FYI/ what say you

The warranty would be the only reason I would even consider a battery this $pendy. Not sure what the warranty is on some of the other premium batteries like Lifeline etc. I dry camp exclusively and for months at a time so my batteries are absolutely critical and need to be as bullet proof as humanly possible. That said a warranty is no good if they have a small dealer network aka few locations.

FYI/ what say you

Browsing today in a batteries + store in Miami . They had a battery brand name X2 with a five year free replacement warranty. It was a 90 amp hour battery and cost was $320 plus tax. Kinda $pendy but I must admit the five year warranty is enticing. I don't or hope I don't need a battery at this point but might be worth a second look when I do. I'm sure they aren't the best battery for the $$$ out there but that warranty will go a long way toward leveling the playing field.

RE: 3 stage charger?

IMHO a 3 stage charger is no more important for one than the other as i feel a 3 stage charger should be standard equipment on ALL campers regardless of battery type. it will maximize battery life and greatly simplify things. i have a PD 9200 series 3 stage charger and leave it plugged in 24/7/365 except when in use. they are not that $pendy and actually will pay for itself over time by extending the life of your battery. good luck with the new fridge,we love ours.

RE: solar panels

The problem with adding solar panels is they need to be almost exactly the same rating or you will need to buy a second charge controler. Constantly evolving solar technology makes adding on complicated. Might be possible to find some more of what you have or sell the older ones and replace with newer higher output panels. Will the existing charge controler handle more panels? Just for the record I would never consider paying just $29 to have a solar panel installed on my roof. after further research,sadly i agree on all points.

RE: Water pump

Good am all. Happy 2 report for whatever reason symptoms mysteriously disappeared overnight. Should they reappear I will try the adjustment on the pump as suggested,hopefully it was just an rv glitch. Thanks all for your help.

RE: Water pump

Thanks for the responses. I don't have an accumulator tank and never have. This issue just started today, it has worked perfectly for 3 years with no pulsating. Could there possibly be another cause?

Water pump

Anyone have an idea why my water pump pulsates when water is turned on instead of running constant. Thanks for any help.

RE: boondocking opportunities

Check the website for the St. John's River Water Management District and also Wildlife Management Areas in that vicinity. I know there is a WMA between St. Augustine and Ormand Beach that has dispersed camping. just can't remember the name of it. lizzie thanks for the tip but according to their website it is for tents only and rv's are not allowed....Sigh.

RE: Honda EU2000i or A/C issue. Help

i have a 12v dometic compressor fridge,9200 polar cub a/c and routinely use the 2000 honda gen set to power both simultaneously without issue. this is accomplished with the gen set on econo mode. however this is all the gen set will pull on econo but it will pull everything at once off econo. i know this offers little in the way of a solution to your problem but just offering the info for you to use as a reference point as you continue to troubleshoot. good luck.

RE: Dehumidifies for truck camper

just ordered a small dehumidifier from wally world ($59 plus tax). it works on 110/12v and is scheduled to arrive,on 9-20. i bought it to control humidity when parked at home,when using the wave 3 heater in the winter and when boondocking during hot/humid days in NC. i will post the results after i have used it for a while. received the dehumidifier today. unfortunately it came without the 12v adapter and on 110 was noisier than i expected. long story short,back to wally world you go. thinking about just using a fan to keep air moving those times with high humidity and see what happens.
