RE: What should I have done?

if he wasn't following too closely, he could have done just that.I'll wait for OP's response.

AC ruins my sinus.What s swimming pool, creek or river is for.Man up.If AC ruined my sinuses I might man up, but for now I'll use AC.

RE: What should I have done?

Sounds to me like you were following the tractor trailer too closely (tailgating). Possible, but the OP didn't say that. Could have been over the crest of a hill too.

RE: What should I have done?

The trooper must have argued with his wife before work that day. I think you were in the right, and if possible you should fight this. I realize that may not be possible, but I don't think that law is appropriate in all situations. It sounds like you did the least dangerous thing.

RE: Pay with Gas Buddy

Never fear, Experian leaked it.It was Equifax this time.

RE: Pay with Gas Buddy

No one gets my bank account info. If I set up auto payment it is a push from my account not a pull from the creditor.If you ever write a check they do.

RE: Pay with Gas Buddy

Had a Pacific Pride fueling card for years (Diesel and gas) and finally got rid of it.Me too. They couldn't manage email billing.

RE: bad gas

4 mpg? That seems low.

RE: So hotttt

There is no reason why an RV AC can't cool to more than 25 degrees lower than the outside temp. I think what get cofused is the the temperature drop through the AC is about 16~21 degrees. The more the same air circulates through the AC the cooler it gets. The rest is up to the insulation and overall heat load of the RV. The AC has no idea what the outside temp is.Exactly. No air is drawn in from outside like a commercial unit.I've heard this before, even from an HVAC tech, but I sure had a hard time believing it since the air ducts fins feel very cold even in a hot trailer. The cooled air coming from my ducts is a constant 55°. If the cooled air were only 20° cooler than ambient, it would take all day to cool down a 90° coach. You don't have to believe me. Just get a couple thermometers and do it for yourself.

RE: Critique proposed solar battery upgrade

is there enough of a reason to switch from FLA to AGM given what I'm doing? Right now, my biggest worry is watching the inverter bottom out at 11.4 when running the coffee maker, and it bugs me... strange, I know, but different strokes for different.I've had both and I don't think AGMs handle large loads appreciably better. I've found 6 handles the big stuff better than 4, but boy does that get heavy.

RE: Generator questions!

It doesn't have to be argued to death if folks just stick to the question as asked. But here's a real war: 2017 generator argument: Honda vs everything else

RE: Generator questions!

19 page thread of HF generator My advice is if you want years and years of reliable use from a generator, get the Honda. If you want light use only a few times per year, get the Predator. In my opinion, after many decades on this planet buying things, you get what you pay for, and one of those things is longevity. There are specific instructions for carburetor settings for high altitude operation.

RE: Solar setup input?

4 of these in series would be approx 72 V at full load so a Victron Blue 150/35 would handle this with easeYes, I should have specifically said '12awg is too small for 400w @ 12 volts, which, in the absence of any other specifics from the OP, is usually what people do. Time2roll assumed the same.

RE: 31 Concorde Lifeline. Tax & Shipping. A Good Buy?

Not much less compared top a Lithium Iron Phosphate battery actually. The lithium battery weighs appreciably less too.Which specific brand of battery would that be?

RE: 31 Concorde Lifeline. Tax & Shipping. A Good Buy?

Reasonable. Definitely not a phony ad.
2oldman 09/21/17 11:37am Tech Issues
RE: Solar setup input?

Wire size depends on how things are connected. 12awg is too small to handle 400w.

RE: Critique proposed solar battery upgrade

Lithium is going to seem like a leap. However half your solar is going to be wasted on absorption time with the amps tapering off to nothing with the AGMs....lithium will absorb all the solar you can produce right up to the point of full. Also as you get into the 1 kW solar zone consider going 24 volts on the main battery and inverter. x2. Li's are great, but will dent your wallet something fierce. If you can handle the $1000/battery you won't look back. Zero maintenance and much less weight than lead batteries. And way less voltage drop on high-draw appliances. 24 volts or higher is a great idea. You don't need cables the size of your thumb. I'm running 48vdc. Small converter for the coach's 12v supply. Running higher voltage solar is what I also recommend. Again, smaller wire size and more efficiency. Of course you'll need a controller to handle the input voltage.

RE: Honda EU2000I On Groupon For $477

I'd like a definition of 'overpriced.' Not the one I can look up.

RE: An electric bus that drove 1,100 miles between charges...

We have Lithium Ion battery technology in our coach for our house batteries. Three batteries power the house vs. maybe 10-12 AGM batteries. We are saving a huge amount of weight and our batteries can be drawn down to 30% before the generator will come on to recharge. They are amazing. Just drew mine down to 10% soc without damage.
