RE: winching a trencher

Maybe I'll wear my hockey goalie outfit.

RE: Stay on your own side....

Good. You're not in the USA anymore.

RE: Charge across 2 6V batteries is 11.78. Is that right?

It doesn't sound right for two NEW batteries.

RE: Need some help with equipment to boost internet

As has been discussed here many times, CG wifi is not able to support streaming no matter what boosters you put on it. In fact, many cgs will specifically prohibit streaming. As for the phone, Weboost works ok. I use this: https://photos.imageevent.com/2oldman/rvnetlinks/small/wifibooster.jpg the CC Vector by CCrane, to grab signals from at least ½ mile away, perhaps more. Mind you, it doesn't increase bandwidth for streaming, it simply allows you use of that signal. Who knows, you may be able to pull in something usable from outside the RV park.

RE: winching a trencher

Not sure I stand under (sic) what you are trying to do with the winch. Pull the trencher to save my back. Don't want to pull faster than it can cut. I'm thinking the 120v model might be better so as not to suck over 100 amps and perhaps not have to cool down. I've been looking at an elastic rope too. Tie to car, stretch out. That would give me some help.

RE: winching a trencher

Elcheapo 12V winch from harbor freight mounted to a hitch on the truck So a winch can be mounted on a hitch? We chained a pickup to it left in drive just keep tension on it. Made the trench much straighter.Cool. Whereabouts on the trencher did you attach the chain? I'm leaning more toward a 120v model to be run by a portable generator. It's only rated at 1500lb, but the motor draws "less than" 10 amperes at full load. That's a whopping amount of juice, and a similar 12v unit would draw 100amps. That would kill a battery very quickly and I'm sure things would get hot. I'm wondering if some of these winches rated at say, 12,000 lb, are severely overrated.

RE: New Mexico 'Quarantine" Requirements

On a trip home to NM from CA in late March, early April, there were lots of closed gas stations in remote locations, closed RV parks, businesses, but, it really didn't matter because I knew where the open forest land is, and I could always find gas. It's difficult to close public forest land, and no cops were coming around rousting me out. There was very little traffic at that time because everyone was sorta scared to go, but it was fine. The luxury of not needing hookups. Unless I hear otherwise, I'm going to assume, and hope it's the same in October.

winching a trencher

I just bought a self-propelled (meaning me) Brave trencher. It does a good job, but it's heavy and really hard on my back. I was thinking of hooking it up to a winch to pull it. Anyone know anything about this sort of arrangement?

RE: Powermax 75 amp converter/charger

it just seems the amp output is low.It's my understanding the batteries themselves determine what amperage they will accept.

RE: New Mexico 'Quarantine" Requirements

NM is still pretty strict with masks, and stay home 'recommendations'. Casino has been closed for months, gyms too, and strict limits on number of customers in stores. To enter any medical facility you'll be masked, your temperature taken and seated at least 6' apart. The reservations had curfews months ago since they were getting hammered. Yeah, a big pita, but so far we're doing ok. The last map I saw showed the 4 corners region getting an uptick in cases, and I wonder if that's 'spillage' from NE AZ.

RE: Firman W02981- Any feedback?

Very few campers ever run air with a generator, although many talk about it.An interesting statement. I wonder on what facts you base this statement.Years of dry camping in hot weather. I'm usually the only one running air. I'm talking about portable gens, not Class A's et al, although it's not real common with them either. Takes a lot of gas and you have to be near a supply of gas, and/or carry a lot of gas.

RE: Powermax 75 amp converter/charger

The powermax is only putting out about 13 amps @ 12.68 volts, does this sound right for a 75 amp charger?The voltage will rise, slowly, as the batteries charge, until the absorb setting is reached.

These posts have Firman in them. As novices they're starting out by dry camping?

RE: Electrical problem

Check your shore power voltage. If it's hot and everyone's running air, that will kill your voltage.

RE: Adding Batteries / Refer Support

Compartment floor isn’t strung enough.2 Li batteries are about 60lb. It won't hold that?

RE: Onan Marquis 5500 put out too much voltage

Lots of hits on that on google. Perhaps it's running too fast.
