RE: Only thing getting power is the 220V Appliance!?

For the part going to the generator, I had to use a 30 Amp Generator 4 Prong to RV30 Amp Adapter cord I got from Home Depot. I'm perplexed here. According to the pic of the generator, there's a 120/240 socket. Is that not a 50a 4-prong connector that your plug should fit into directly?

RE: Chased Down The World's "Best" Solar Cells

I usually get 65-75%.

RE: Chased Down The World's "Best" Solar Cells

.., the charging efficiency can be up to 23.7%."can be up to" probably means at cold temperatures in noon sun. The wattage on panels is almost never reached either.

RE: Chased Down The World's "Best" Solar Cells

sunpower solar panels with Maxeon cells boast 25% efficiency and even Jackery portable solar panels advertise 23.7% efficiency...My research shows the best we have is about 22.7%

RE: Dry Camping - Heat with Propane, or electrically w/Inverter?

At night if youre watching a movie and dont want to hear the loud furnace use the catalytic heater..This is where I must be different from all others. My furnace is not loud.

RE: Dry Camping - Heat with Propane, or electrically w/Inverter?

I'm concerned about CO production and other combustion products. .And water vapor. A furnace is designed for this but a lot of peeps sure want to avoid that. I have a buddy heater but it sure doesn't heat anywhere near what my furnace can, and it really eats propane.

RE: Connecting Portable Solar Panels

how long of an extension cord should I consider? Is 20 ft sufficient, or is 30 ft a more practical length?The longer the cord the more loss. Consider a series hookup if much over 20'. A 300w panel will likely be 24v.

RE: Connecting Portable Solar Panels

can two - or more - portable panels be tied together so that only one lead goes to the batteries?To the controller.. sure. You don't need special connectors, just wire them up yourself.

RE: 2-way refrigerator operation without a battery

The gas mode has that reflector but you can't see it unless it is dark, which is not so useful either when you can't see if it lit or not except by going outside.I can hear mine.

RE: 2-way refrigerator operation without a battery

That is why it is important for the OP to state MODEL NUMBER. DougWe can hope.

RE: Dry Camping - Heat with Propane, or electrically w/Inverter?

my issue with the unvented heaters (buddy etc.) is that for every gallon of propane burned you release 3+ quarts of water into the trailer air. Good point. I wouldn't like that. And you're most certainly not going to have open windows.

RE: Dry Camping - Heat with Propane, or electrically w/Inverter?

I don't know what you mean by heat 'electrically', I guess that means a space heater? No, your batteries won't like that, but your furnace would be fine. A mattress heating pad will keep you nice and comfy all night on batteries. They use very little power.

RE: 2016 ITASCA TRIBUTE 31C Solar Upgrade

Arizona wind and sun is a good, reputable place. Don't hesitate to pay a bit more for service after the sale.

RE: 2016 ITASCA TRIBUTE 31C Solar Upgrade

Any reviews on MPPT controllers?Just make sure you get one that's configurable for Li batteries. ie.. correct voltage, no absorb..etc. And one that will handle the solar amps you expect to harvest. Outback makes top of the line. Just a friendly correction.. it's ah, not aph
