RE: Auxiliary Tank Combo

It's still a Dodge, just like a Mustang is a Ford. The dealership says "Dodge", not "Dodge/R am" or "Dodge and Ram. Also, if you call national customer service, you get Dodge.

RE: Auxiliary Tank Combo

Talk to MFL. He's the one that told me my Dodge pickup was not a Dodge. He's the one that got off topic.

RE: Temp Reg. Question Buying from out of state in California

OP, I would look into meeting in Yuma, AZ and completing the transaction there. Maybe not possible, but it wouldn't hurt to look into it.

RE: Auxiliary Tank Combo

It may not say Dodge on the side of the truck, but it is purchased at a Dodge dealer. Out of curiosity, does a Mustang have the word Ford on it?

California will stick it to you if they can.

RE: Temp Reg. Question Buying from out of state in California

We bought 2 new motorhomes in Auburn, CA. The dealer drove said motorhomes to Nevada where the sale was completed using a Nevada Notary. Then drove motorhomes to Arizona without plates - never got stopped.

RE: Auxiliary Tank Combo

I went one step further and figured out how many gallons were in an inch of depth since my aux tank doesn't have a gauge. I can put a yardstick down in the tank and calculate the remaining gallons.

RE: Auxiliary Tank Combo

Why are you nitpicking? Dodge makes a pickup that they call Ram. That makes it a Dodge Ram. Is a Mustang a Ford? Is a Corvette a Chevy? And I don't care if my OEM tank is 32, 35, or 36 gallons. When both tanks are full I have over 80 gallons. And the fuel gauge will tell me when I need more.

RE: Auxiliary Tank Combo

We have a 50 gallon aux tank plus the OEM 36 gallon tank on our Dodge 3500 dually. One thing all that fuel capacity provides is the ability to bypass states with high gas/diesel taxes. Are you 100% sure your fuel tank is 35 gallons? I'm sure it's not 35 gallons. I typed 36 but it might be 32. It's one of those numbers that is not that important to me.

RE: Everybody must get stoned, rock on...

We're in Phoenix now for a couple Dr appointments. But we were at the Payson Elks for most of those rains. Sure did enjoy the rain.

DC, is that real grass? In Arizona? It sure is green.

RE: More on LFP Charging

My Victron solar controller defaults to auto absorption, but I chose to go with 15 minutes.

RE: More on LFP Charging

I'm happy with what I do but I'm not saying it is the correct thing to do. The charger part of my 3kw inverter/charger is turned off and the converter that came with my 5th wheel is unplugged. So battery charging (whether plugged in or not) is only done by the solar panels. I bulk charge to 14.2V, then absorb for 15 minutes, then float at 13.6V.

RE: Everybody must get stoned, rock on...

I'm wondering why you didn't back in putting the entry on the driveway side.

RE: Dish Tv help needed

No wiring to reconfigure in the house or RV. A single co-ax cable from the dish to the Hopper 3. That's it.

RE: AZ 260 between Payson and Heber... expect delays

I think - but don't hold me to it - that the plan is to make it 4 lane from Star Valley to Heber. BTW, Desert Cptn, we're sitting at the Payson Elks until Thursday. Then we have to go to the heat for a couple Dr appointments. Yuck.

RE: Dish Tv help needed

I'm not positive, but I think RF energy (satellite signal) will pass thru fiberglass but not glass due to the chemical composition of glass. For the OP, switch to a Hopper 3 with 2 wireless Joeys.

RE: Harbor Freight Predator 3500

We have the 3500 HF. It stays in the truck bed. Used it once when we had too much shade from tall pine trees for the solar to charge. With the genny running on one side of the 5th wheel, I could barely hear it from the other side of the RV. And it was VERY quiet in a tall pine forest - no traffic or wind noise.

RE: Series-parallel configurations for solar panels

Excellent answers and I appreciate the feedback.
