RE: Trailer battery charging while towing

If using the stock 6 or 7 pin connector 24 hours of towing might work. The charging wire needs to be beefed up considerably. Even better is to add a 2nd external diode to the oem alternator.

How many amp-hours is the battery bank?

RE: RV Battery charging

Hi, Probably the battery is toast. You can try connecting it in parallel with a good battery and applying the charger. Wear eye protection and woolen clothing as the "bad" battery can explode (rare). Consider adding a modest solar system for storage charging.

RE: SunStalker

A cute product. For something smaller that would work, get a toy arrow with a suction cup. Stick it on the panel and adjust for zero shade.

RE: How bad is Verizon 3G?

Hi Jim, Be aware that all the cell companies are moving away from 3G in their towers. Other than that I found 3G adequate for all my needs. Congestion is an issue with all cell networks.

RE: inverter

Why have 1000 watts if 300 will do the deed? Overhead from running the 1000 watt may be higher. Morningstar is the "go to" inverter in the 300 watt size.

RE: iPad Air Battery

Hi, There is some evidence that LI batteries prefer to not be charged to 100%. Discharging below 20% may reduce cycle life.

RE: Converter Questions - Replacement and want to charge faster

Solar and either an Iota or a PD converter. Any reports on the new PD?

RE: How to stop automatic win 10 upgrade

No, the software is heavily encrypted and will not run in compatibility mode.

RE: Solar charge controller coupled to power converter question

Nice post Grizzman. I'd love to know the amp rate of a battery that is 94% charged. Anyone have a graph or table?

RE: The Equator and internet service??

Who do you pay for using the dongle? (i.e. what you called a usb plug) It's a USB plug, like small thumb drive. I plug it into my laptop and voila I have internet. There is no phone connection, no antenna, no cable hook up nada nothing just my providers USB plugged into the laptop. I used it Full timing for over 6 years and had access everywhere I traveled. Even in the rain!! Except now in north central Florida. Sooo you are saying my internet IS satellite and considered radio?

RE: Small Class A or Class C

Hi, How much cargo carrying capacity is there? You may be in for a rude awakening. Class A may be a better form factor than Class C.

RE: Charging & Managing battery

As SMK suggests add some solar. Use two dog bone adapters. 15 to 30, and 30 to 50.

RE: How to stop automatic win 10 upgrade

Hi elivi8, I have some legacy software that will only work on xp and win 7. I need it for my work.

RE: The Equator and internet service??

Hi Chris, Iqaluit Nunavet has no land line access of any kind. All internet back bone is via Satellite. This leads to some interesting problems, because twice per year (around the equinox) the geosynchronous satellite, ground dish and sun all are in a straight line. The sun "drowns out" the signal, so there is a 2 hour gap where only locally based internet is available. There is also (very expensive) satellite phone internet with birds in low earth orbit. And- no part of the Internet is via satellite, unless you have a sat internet provider. It's all fiber optics- satellites have far too much latency.

RE: Inverter question about 12v draw

Quick and dirty divide the wattage by 10. So 50 watts may cost you 5 amps @ 12 volts dc.

RE: Another two battery question

I agree with smk. Leave them connected together in parallel when using them and charging them. This is what is balanced and best for twin twelve volt batteries. http://www.rubyorchid.com/RV/images/Pianotuna12V.png

RE: How to stop automatic win 10 upgrade

Tom, I meant the upgrade to win 10 is 6 gigs.
