RE: Solar wire/cable routing options on my 2005 Four Winds 29Q

There is a TV antenna... Can I go through it? That would be great. .That's where my mfr put a couple 'solar ready' wires. That would make it much easier if you had some there! Dunno if you can utilize that hole.. maybe.

RE: firestone tires

Maybe you should consider installing LT tires for a change.At least something that's not cheap junk faux Firestone.they are FREESTAR sold by the firestone store in Yuma AZ never again will I buy them. Made in china.Perhaps you should change your post title to say that. Lots of folks on here read only the subject line, or at best the first post. Yeah, I know.

RE: Solar wire/cable routing options on my 2005 Four Winds 29Q

Studs... maybe. You should be able to fasten to a plywood underlayment. From the looks of your roof, and the absence of a TV antenna, I can pretty well deduce there's no existing wires up there for you to use. I guess your drill plan is ok. You can get away with longer wire runs with higher voltage in your array... ie 2 panels in series.

RE: Primewell ST tires

Let me guess: they're cheap. Pay now or pay later.. your choice.

RE: Excess Genny use

Are you sure they know that there are generator hours?That's my favorite excuse.. "Oh.. I didn't know." Uh huh.

RE: How Often do You Empty and Clean Your Bays

Every year. I need to know where things are and be able to get to them. "Just in case" isn't in my plan.

RE: Excess Genny use

You're in a tough spot. I don't know if Ranger Rick will be there at 11pm when it's running... again. It's Memorial Day weekend, and all the brain-dead inconsiderate louts are among us. My Bose noise-cancelling headphones come in handy for times like these.

RE: AGM vs Lead Acid

Well, need some input: If two 100 amp hour lead acid batteries did the job for my usage in my old trailer, will one AGM 100 amp hour battery do the job in the new trailer.Depends on what you mean by 'did the job.' If you drew them down 25%, then the answer would be yes. Much more than that, no. AGM ah's are the same as LA ah's.

RE: I believe in LED lights now

I had no idea these little automotive type bulbs got so hot.Same thing happened to me.. I was shocked (no pun) at the melted plastic. Gads! What kinda surprises me is how hot the household 120v LEDs get.

RE: Solar Panel Size To Battery Bank Size

Fill the roof with solar, but the battery tray could still be too large if solar is to be the main/ only recharge source.How much power you consume is a pretty important factor in your battery bank size.

RE: Can I test my Wilson Sleek without leaving town?

You should find something nearby where the signal isn't so good. My Sleek degrades a good signal.

RE: Illegal GPS mounting

Secondly I see as many cops on cell phones while driving than I do any one else on the streets and highways.That's fine with me as long as it's not about what time they'll be home.

RE: Surge Guard Came In handy Today

Hopefully, the park will fix the problem when they are notified of the issue.Maybe.. they hate that. After all, what do silly RVers know about electricity? In this case it's very likely the next person in that site will not have a SP. I've been at exactly one park in 12 years with a power problem. My Prosine wouldn't pass the ac. Owner opened up the box and found a lot of burned wires. There was still power, but barely. He was actually pissed and tried to blame me for it.

RE: Illegal GPS mounting

.. in Arizona but it is not illegal to text while driving. Illegal in 46 states. It's just stupid in the other 4.

RE: Solar Panel Size To Battery Bank Size

Plan is fine. "Sizing" to me is "how many panels can I get on my roof?"

RE: Surge Guard Came In handy Today

Oh but it can cause a problem and can even be dangerous. Ok. Maybe it would be prudent to carry a dogbone with the wires crossed, since that's all that needs to be changed.

RE: Surge Guard Came In handy Today

Reversed polarity cannot cause an damage to any equipment. .., it really isn't a big deal. No need to avoid that site for the rest of all eternity.x2. Doesn't AC switch polarity 60x a second? It may have come in handy, but it did make you move when you really didn't need to.
