RE: Use 24v Batteries to run 12v System... Possible?

Volta Power Systems uses higher voltage lithium packs, with dc-dc converters for 12 volt stuff. I thought they used 24 volt setup for the Sprinter system, but it looks like they may be running 48 volts, which is supposedly going to be a new automotive standard, but they have been saying that for years...

RE: Electric flush toilet suggestion to replace obsolete Dometic

Which electric are you talking about? Is it the recirculating model?

RE: Water Pump won’t Prime

If you just want to get it primed, use a wet dry vacuum on a faucet. Thats a good idea except thats what the pump should be doing and it's not. You can spend your time chasing a minuscule air leak or you can go camping- your choice. It can be any or all fittings on the suction side, it can be a bit of trash in the valve body, it can be the bypass valve with a bit of trash in it. Once it is primed, it won't matter.

RE: Dealer STILL can't fix slide out HELP

To be honest, that doesn't sound like enough to me, but if the gasket is real stiff, it might be. I would hose it down and look for leaks.

RE: Dealer STILL can't fix slide out HELP

I don't know, using your figures, if 3/8 is 50%, then the gasket first touches at 3/4", and 5/8" would be just 1/8" of compression.

RE: For any that need one, Motorola phone sale.

Thanks- just ordered one. I have been looking to replace my pitiful Windows Nokia.

RE: Upgrading my TV Antenna

I've had brand new antenna side by side to compare- the Winegard did a bit better, much better on the VHF station, but there wasn't a huge difference. My gauge was a Winegard tuner with signal strength meter.

RE: buying wire

In no particular order- many (most?) of these are distributors, so quantity orders are the norm- i.e. no cut lengths. Many will cut to order though. Waytek Wire Dell City Polar Wire Products Skycraft Surplus I should add that Skycraft has diesel locomotive cable (DLO), far better than welding cable- sizes from #10 to 646 AWG (6 sizes larger than 4/0 (!) ), with #4 being $1.28/ft, 60 foot min though :( Skycraft DLO Cable

RE: Can't locate CO detector

It will only have one if it was factory equipped for a genset- IOW, rigs with internal combustion engines are required to have CO detectors, those without don't.

RE: Is there such a thing as a vent filter?

Maxxair used to make a pop in filter for the fantastic vent, but it looks like it is out of production.

RE: Collapsable drinking water hose... yay or nay

Good for a spare, when you need more hose, but if you step on one of those on gravel, you have an expensive soaker hose. Caveat, this is experience with that type of hose, but not that particular one.

RE: Question about electrical box inside project RV

Yeah- those pushmatic breakers are really expensive, if you can even find them.

RE: 1500 watt heater. Enough?

Fwiw, if you are hard wiring it, you can go up to 1800 watts on that 20 amp circuit. Actually, I believe you can go even higher, like 1920 watts. 1800W is correct for a heater as it falls under continuous load so the circuit needs to be derated by 20%. I thought 1920 was 20% down- 20 amps times 120 volts equals 2400 watts, less 480 watts (20% of 2400) equals 1920 watts. Or is there an additional derating due to constant load? My NEC is still packed :)

Coolmom beet me to it- they are available, though not built in.

RE: Chevrolet dealer resurrected 1970s Cheyenne Super 10

Ours was blue and white, and the whole truck cost what this package costs. I do love it though, actually looks "normal".
