RE: Oregon/California coast--best time of year?

In Astoria: Maritime Museum (all ages), waterfront trolly, Ft Stevens, Lewis & Clark fort, the Column and not to mention you are at the mouth of the Columbia River which is perhaps the most dangerous river entry in the world with about 300 large ship wrecks! Want a clue about the river? The cannon found at Cannon Beach sank at Astoria before being found at Cannon Beach years later.

RE: Oregon/California coast--best time of year?

South in OR is best for large rigs due to ocean side view pullouts. Anytime schools are in session is better due to fewer travelers.

RE: Boondock on Oregon coast and CA coast

What happened to George the vagabond?

RE: Boondock on Oregon coast and CA coast

On or rear beach sites will be difficult. You might find a site more inland or in January. :B

RE: How to remove a round tumbler lock on the basement door?

How about a locksmith? After some drilling an easy out (right or left) could turn the lock. You might be able to use a screwdriver and wrench to turn the entire lock even though it is not suppose to turn. Do you have another lock to pull and maybe get some ideas?

RE: MH wont start on chassis battery. Has 13V

Do you have a combined charger/inverter? What is the house battery voltage on shore power?

RE: MH wont start on chassis battery. Has 13V

The alternator should keep the chassis battery at 13.4V+. So the batteries aren't being charged and won't start the engine. Some rigs charge the chassis battery from shore power and some don't depending upon configuration.

RE: MH wont start on chassis battery. Has 13V

Wondering if you connected all cables when you replaced the batteries? BIG HINT: Always mark all cables and take pictures before you start. A club members friend replaced his batteries and the rig would not start. He was in total denial that they weren't connected correctly. After he finally calmed down and let me look I found a unconnected cable. The combiner or boost is a solenoid that connects the 2 battery banks. It should be reasonably close to both battery banks. OP Your unloaded voltage readings don't mean much. Connect your voltmeter to a good FRAME ground. Then when trying to start measure to the negative battery post (should be almost 0V) then the positive battery post (should be 12V+). Continue towards the starter until you find the problem. New batteries fail - have them load tested.

RE: A Solar update / review....

Cuz I'm just learning this stuff. the 700w coffeemaker brews in 2 min, that's 2800 watts a minute or 45 watt hours, correct?Amps are usually used. 700W/12V = 58A or about 1Ah for the battery discharge for each minute, 2Ah total. Don't know where you came up with 2800W as the coffee maker draws 700W a minute.

RE: Easiest route to the redwoods from the north with trailer

and are 64' overall. Don't want to get stuck on a real twisty road crossing over from the interstate. That should eliminate 199 and 299. Which leaves part of the OR coast. Starting from the north we've taken 30, 26, 6, 18, 126, 38 and 42. 101 is decent, scenic and slow but almost all view stop are on the ocean side. ie South bound is best.

RE: Stone Vos awning fabric

Self install or take it to a nearby shop. You'll probably need the awning model and size, pictures might help.

RE: Solar Storage Protocol?

Here's my battery monitor shunt and battery switch. http://i369.photobucket.com/albums/oo134/catraveler/Solar%20Installation/ControllerandShuntWiring_zpse138bec9.jpg
CA Traveler 06/25/16 09:26am Tech Issues
RE: Solar Storage Protocol?

Just disconnect the panels (no dummy load needed) and the battery, easy to install a switch on each. Battery self discharge is about 2% a month so not a problem for a few months.

RE: Calling Solar Gurus

Tilting is about maximum solar output not eliminating shade. I flat mounted 3 panels with the notion that it would be equivalent to 2+ tilted panels.

RE: Calling Solar Gurus

I saw a set up somewhere online either yesterday or the day before that used door hinges, it on my list of possibilities but I'm not sure if it'll work for all functions I am looking at. Besides tilting both ways and easily accessing the roof under the panels for maintenance and cleaning, I also want to be able to install some extensions if I need to get the panels out of any shadows. I'm going to mount the panels on either side of the cab over sky light. Depending on where, when and what direction we are facing you never know where the shadows are gonna fall.One of the members in the above link set his panels up so that they can be tilted 4 ways...

RE: Calling Solar Gurus

Edit: Apologies - I have very large 60 volt panels... smaller panels may not require anything nearly as heavy as a door hinge.Those panels will be large sails in the wind and IMHO the issue is not how to hinge but how to secure them to the roof. I would be thinking of long commercial solar roof struts or long 2x2" aluminum channel as the base securely anchored to the roof.

RE: Calling Solar Gurus

This thread Members Solar has a lot of solar install information. I don't recall anyone with the larger 60V panels but still a lot of good ideas.

RE: little surprise every time we dump the tanks

But I do have another concern. With the valves being inside the tank with a cable mechanism to open and close. If it ever breaks when it is closed how do you get it open.Very doubtful it's "in" the tank. It may however be an enclosed area making access more involved.
