RE: Watch out MS10 is still trying to force itself on you!

There are issues with recording sound in win 10. Ty for "digital rights management".

RE: Watch out MS10 is still trying to force itself on you!

It did happen to a friend of mine. However, I admit I did not see it and he is a bit of a computer klutz.

Try to enable notepad on win 10. It is a free, but requires you to enter your credit card number. I agree it is better than 8 or 8.1. But I'm still happy with win 7

RE: Stupid battery and solar questions

Hi Naio, Agm jars sometimes want to be "woken up" with a high charge rate. It is not that you can't run a 20 amp charger--it is that 20 amps may not enough to service the Agm's and make them "rise and shine (it's sunlight in the swamps?)". As always, solar starts with a really really energy audit. Kill-a-watt is the best tool with the very best "bang for the buck" for that purpose. Thank you SO much, everyone! I do have a charger that can do 20amps Why would it not run on my ex650? I have used them together, though more of a top charge and maybe not maxed out on amps. Hmm... sounds like I would need a lot of solar to run both freezers. Another option would be to stick with the one freezer, and have someone back home send me frozen stuff from the other periodically. Much less convenient.

RE: Stupid battery and solar questions

Hi, I have 4 similar jars and have done some high current testing. Running the microwave and toaster at the same time via the Magnum 3012 hybrid inverter present a load of 276 amps. They seem able to support that much of a load. Running the fridge for 2 hours standing still (say 70 amp-hours used) 1 makes them want to draw their maximum safe charging rate.

Photobucket does not play well with rvnet servers. You could make them clickable links http://s1048.photobucket.com/user/mexbungalows/media/S4%20034_zpsxm6nr0ki.jpg.html

I would use high temperature permalock.

RE: Cooling Issues in my stealth camper

Since you are so insistent on using a material that will be substandard, I hope you will at least use water resistant drywall, the type intended for use in bathrooms. I can find no information on using sheet rock as a thermal (or cool) sink. RV's are generally hotter than Hades in the summer, and just the opposite in the winter. I have a so called four season unit. During winter time it takes up to 7000 watts to keep it warm. That works out to 23884 btu's. My RV is highly modified using insulbright on all windows, vents, sky lights, and entry door. I've also where ever possible added additional insulation.

RE: questions,,,newbie,,,,confused ,,engine issues ?

Keep on looking. Spark plugs are not an issue until 1999 and were mostly solved by 2001 and all solved by 2005 on the Ford V-10.

RE: Cooling Issues in my stealth camper

Hi, It bothers people because there are far superior materials that could be used for insulating. You already see a problem with lack of heat rejection on the roof with the unit only 1/4 in the sun. Look into change of phase materials. I'm not suggesting they are suitable because I do not know. But I'm certain they are better than 300 lbs of drywall. 300 lbs in drywall (which will act a a cool sink and reduce AC cycling) isn't a deal breaker. I can't figure out why this bothers people so much. If it cracks, I'll throw luan over it.

RE: Stupid battery and solar questions

Naio, All MPPT controllers switch to PWM when the battery start approaching fully charged. Input voltage doesn't matter--but higher is, in my opinion, better. All input voltages need to be the same, and identical panels are better. My own system has an input voltage of 33 to an MPPT controller, with adjustable set points for voltage and a temperature sensor. At 256 watts it was enough to keep my battery bank quite happy--and all trips started with a 100% state of charge for the bank. When the battery bank is "hungry" I do see 17 amps of charging happening at solar noon.

RE: Stupid battery and solar questions

2old, They are 12 volt jars. Naio, There are no stupid questions--except the ones you are afraid to ask. I'm using similar used 12 volt telecom and so far I love them. I got them the summer of 2015 at the local interstate store. They were $524 including tax for 556 amp-hours @ the 20 hour rate and are a surplus acid design. They came with a six month warranty.

RE: Diesel Aux Tank wiring

Hi, I think he means fueling with the engine running. I have no idea what "hot fueling" means, explain please?

RE: RV Fridge / Household Fridge

Hi RV Sam, It depends on the duty cycle. My RV fridge is 2:3 so it is 'on' 40 minutes per hour. A residential may have a much lower duty cycle. My RV absorption fridge uses 5.7 kwh per day. Can anyone comment on this please. RV unit says 2.7amps... House unit same size says 2.9amps. I have a "feeling", going to bring my meter and check this weekend, that the House unit will burn less power than the RV unit because of the difference in the way they make things cold. Has anyone done any test on this ?

RE: Whom Of Us Boondocks 14-days Or More At A Stretch?

Hi Jeff, Break even for a modern air to air heat pump is about -4 C (28 f). Hi Jeff, Because it is moving heat from outdoors to indoors. So 1200 watts to run the compressor moves about 3000 watts of heat. (That is an example--not actual figures). How can you be more efficient than a resistor? 100w in, 100w out of heat How can a heat pump possibly beat that?but that's a moving target depending on outside tempo and what can be harvested, no? Obviously 65 is way more efficient than 55. So where's the break-even point?
