RE: Charger / Inverter Control Panel.

I suppose that could work, but I'm too lazy to look up the manual for you.

RE: To those that have scratch built - would you do it again?

A couple concerns.. I don't know how you are about looks, but I've seen a few homemade ones that I wouldn't be driving in public.. if ya's know what I mean. That truck.. what kind of suspension does it have? Is it an old work truck that's going to beat you to death?

RE: Rand McNally In-Dash GPS

Reason I'm commenting is that I'm about ready to put a new Kenwood touchscreen unit in my truck and I would always want GPS voice on. Radio, no, that goes off (down) when navigating heavy traffic.

RE: How do I stay internet safe when travelling?

It doesn't matter whether it's happened or not. It's so freakin' rare it doesn't matter. But there's certainly a lot of fear about it. Kinda like 'I'm not buying 2 6v batteries because if one dies I'm sol'

RE: RV Fridge / Household Fridge

If this is a hypothetical question, maybe google knows. Maybe you can understand what Mex just wrote. If it's about saving kilowatts, it's likely moot. IOW, the difference is likely tiny.

RE: Rand McNally In-Dash GPS

stupid question: does the volume knob also turn off the GPS? If so, does that mean you have to listen to the radio AND the gps? IF so, that's really weird.

RE: Adding Solar Charger

You can add a trickle charger anywhere in any 12v circuit. It all ends up back at the battery.

RE: How do I stay internet safe when travelling?

If I lived my life according to what CAN happen, I'd probably never leave the house. OP is gone. Probably a troll watching this place explode.

RE: CampPark Resort in Niagara Falls

Actually it's Campark, but I can't find anything near Niagara posts.

RE: solar cells

Lots of variables. Let's begin with this: What kind (size) of batteries, with what kind of daily usage, and what is affordable?

RE: I Think I Just Bought Way Too Much Battery

I'm just wondering how bad it will be if I'm only charging them at .0825CA instead of the .25CA that the PDF indicates as a "standard" charge. I don't know how to assess the consequences of that, or whether it's enough to prevent sulfation..Good question. I'm not in possession of that kind of knowledge, perhaps google or someone here is. It's my contention that keeping them as charged as possible without letting them sit, at say, 50% for too long is fine. I think the problem you will have (depending on usage) is that a 99% charge is going to take a long time at .08.

RE: I Think I Just Bought Way Too Much Battery

That's a whopping amount of battery, and a lot of weight for such a small rig. I don't think you'll sulfate them as long as they stay reasonably charged. My 640ahs of 12v AGMs can handle much more than my solar or charger can pump into them, but they're still fine. Just takes longer. My max charge rate is around 50v x 17a= 900w. You say 33a charging.. that means you have a 33x13 ~ 400w charger? That might be a bit thin. They will be awesome for boondocking.. until you have to recharge them!

RE: Satellite dish aiming

I got rid of all of the all-thread stuff and replaced the hex nuts with wing nuts.tv4rv also sells a kit to modify the lnb arm to be hinged and folded to the dish. Very nice for getting in and out the door.

RE: Planning Solar Panels

What I meant was, is 400watts of solar worth all the trouble and money spent or will I barely get anything in return? 400w is usually pretty good for 2 batteries. of course it depends on your usage. Big inverters, running big appliances takes more. No, panel voltage don't have nothing to do with battery voltage.
