RE: Moth Balls Melt Solo Cup

Styrofoam or plastic cups? Solo cups are made of polystyrene, kind of like plastic.

Here are a few photos. And posting the work order (blocked out left side because that's our personal info.

RE: 12 volt fridges

Wow, this thread sure went off the rail quickly. :S To the OP. The charge controller should indicate the charge going to the battery.

RE: Solar panel and battery noise

Always thought that 13.6v was the typical charging voltage for LA batteries

RE: Solar panel and battery noise

I went and found the manual for the power converter/charger. It is an Elixir ELX-45. In the specifications section it says DC output is 13.5Volts 45Amps. It also says "...designed to output a constant voltage of 13.5-13.6 volts at no load and 13.1 volts at full load to ensure trouble free service of all 12volt DC appliances." Does this mean when plugged into shore with everything turned off the batteries would only be receiving 13.5-13.6VDC max? Kinda sounds that way to me. yup, and your batteries will NEVER become fully charged and likely never get to the point where you see any bubbling. That also means since they never get fully charged, battery life will suffer. Therefore it is likely that the solar controller is trying to get the batteries fully charged. hence the bubbling and noise. Assuming they are connected correctly to the solar controller. Where did you get that information from?

RE: New battery time

No need for deep cycle batteries if the trailer is always on shore power.

RE: Tires- LT or ST

Carlisle Radial Trail HD have great reviews.

RE: Warm fridge / cold freezer (Norcold)

If it is an absorption fridge (propane) and not in a slide there should be no obstruction in the vent way.

RE: Strong urine smell in bathroom

"It was a hot three days with much peeing and very little flushing." That could be the problem.Indeed. Much less water conservation next time and we'll see. Have the male folk pee out behind the trailer. :B

RE: Champion 2500-Watt Dual Fuel Inverter Generator

We were boondocking recently next to a guy who had a Champion generator. Couldn't hear myself think when he had it running. Was this an open frame generator or an inverter. I have two 2000 watt inverter units and they are both very quiet. I combine them when I need to run high power stuff but most of the time we run one of them in eco mode. That is enough to charge my TT batteries after running the furnace all night. To tell you the truth, I didn't notice. All that I noticed was that they were Champion. Had to have been an open frame, Champion inverter genny's are not loud.

RE: Champion 2500-Watt Dual Fuel Inverter Generator

I bought a Champion generator from Costco and it leaked fuel all over the floor. I could not stop it from leaking, so I returned it and bought a used Honda 2000i for less than the cost of this one. You buy cheap you get cheap. "You buy cheap you get cheap." :B

RE: Black Tank Treatments - Yay or Nay?

No RV chemicals for me. Every few dumps I'll add some Calgon liquid and some blue Dawn detergent, but that's it for us. As far as flushing, I flush every time I dump unless I'm in a hurry and I'm staying someplace with full hookups the next night. Once the water flows clear, I'll close the black valve and keep the flush running for a moment to add a few gallons to the tank so there's something to swish around. Try not to overthink it. That is exactly the same thing I do, tank treatment is a waste of money.

RE: Charging batteries with a small generator

Until the batteries are fully charged. :B With that small genny and electric fridge plus other power usage, I would say the genny needs to run most of the day.

RE: When impatience hurts!

This thread is getting funnier as time goes on. I will add my 2 cents. That trucker should have got on his CB radio and asked the guy in front to pull over on the shoulder so he could pass. :B

RE: Hwys closed and wild fires in BC & Alberta

campgrounds are going to get a lot harder to find in Alberta now. They just shut down a large area of rec sites and back woods camping due to extreme fire risks. Have not heard of any closures. No fires or off highway vehicles allowed for now. Update: Just found a notice about some Provincial Parks being closed, but not boondocking areas.

RE: Generator dB rating

Heres one at Canadian Tire. That is close to Honda pricing.... No where near close. The Honda 3200 watt is $3200. The Champion 5500 watt is $1300.
