RE: Minnie Winnie or Fuse/View?

What these previous guys' posts said....plus the Fuse is definitely more comfortable to drive than the E350 chassis.

RE: Voltage or Ground

The battery boost feature that ties both house battery and chassis batteries together, Has a switch on my panel,When I push that switch does it send voltage to solenoid? or does it make a ground for that solenoid ? Locate your battery boost solenoid. If it has a single control terminal, then it is almost certain to require a voltage applied to that terminal to activate. If it has two terminals, then one would be grounded by a wire and the other would be hot.....which one would be switched by the boost switch should be determined with a voltmeter.

RE: SimpliSafe bypassed by $2 device

433.92 mHZ.. He mentioned Ham Radio.. I have two radios in front of me one transmit at between 100mW (0.10 watt) and 5 watts. the other 5 and 50 watts. One of the memorized frequencies is 433.560 less than 1/2 MHz away.. Yup. I have no doubt the Simple Safe device would be wiped out by either of 'em. I'm licensed for 1000 watts (but do not go there) The smaller radio also has a ZERO option that I use during the day.. but that's a long story. I saw an add or a "Solar powered Tire Pressure Monitor" Same 433.92 Not buying You're licensed for 1600 watts, not 1000. 1000W for the FM radios to which WA8YXM was referring.

RE: Toilet replacement

You're really shorting yourself by not considering the Dometic toilets, 310, 320 models. .....porcelain models or not.....

RE: Battery Monitor choices

I have been extremely pleased with the Clipper BM-1 compact battery monitor. High quality and very aesthetic, too. ....or the BM-2 with larger display unit. Clipper battery monitor by NASA Marine

RE: Electrical Management Systems questions

Hi Bobbo, > I do have a way to limit my demand to 80% of what is available, so on 15 I limit to 12, 30 to 24, and 50 to 30. . I would be interested to learn how you limit current consumption as outlined above....

RE: Electrical Management Systems questions

In my 40 years of RVing, I have NEVER heard of a generator failing in a way that could harm the electronics in an RV. On the other hand, I have personally heard of hundreds of RVers who experienced damage from flawed shore power. EMS protection is aimed primarily at the statistically high chance that you may encounter bad shore power in your travels. If one is paranoid about the extremely unlikely chance a generator could somehow fail in a damaging way, have at it and wire your EMS to include it, as outline in the many responses above.

RE: Solar question

Zamp solar panels use a two pin (trailer hitch type) connector wired with a non standard polarity. Other vendors that use this connector wire their panels the opposite. Did you check for proper polarity on the new panel before hooking it up to your existing system?

RE: Fitted sheets for corner bed

May need to make them. This place does a great job, albeit a bit pricey..... Mattress Insider

RE: Renting out your RV nightmares.

Probably a bit late, but my recommendation is to stop renting out your expensive vehicle......to people who don't know how to properly operate it.....

RE: How To Charge 5 Apple Products

What do people do to charge 5 apple products will in your TT? I would like info on both when working off battery power and when I am hooked up to shore power. Picking up new trailer next week and I believe there are 2 USB ports in the trailer. I will have 2 Golf Cart Batteries while in the boonies. I did Google and found some info but I value the opinions of those that have used whatever product, so I look forward to your comments. Thanks Ed Something like one of these? Amazon results from searching - 12V multi USB charger

RE: Can you get a decent browser on Windows XP?

You might try Opera Mini, if you're bent on doing this....but XP is simply very outsated. Another option might be to reformat and install Linux OS instead.

RE: Satelite Internet

I am not aware of any satellite service for Internet that would work well for streaming video..... perhaps some even more expensive commercial services may be available. I suspect your only recourse would be to pre-record a bunch of videos and take them with you.

RE: Dangerous?

A battery under charge vents hydrogen gas. Hydrogen is not really harmful to you in small quantities, although I suppose one could suffocate if the concentration is high. It is, however, extremely flammable/explosive.

RE: Is this what a bidge does?

I cannot know if your external wifi device can do as you want, but I do this all the time with my Pepwave Surf-On-The-Go WiFi device. Pepwave WiFi router

RE: No power from new solar panel

Did you check polarity as 'twodownzero' suggested above? And are you certain you connected the panel to the proper input terminals on your controller?

RE: Solar Panel Mounting Advice Needed

No professional installer I have ever heard of that tried to hit trusses.....just screw into wood substrate. Thousands upon thousands of RVs have it installed this way with no problem. Personally I would rather not screw into roof at all so I installed my panel mounts with 3M VHS doubleside tape.This seems to be the way more and more installers are doing it. I sure agree with the guy who suggested not using the common Z mounts.....they make it very difficult to remove panels ifneed be.

RE: Best low profile A/C

Looks to me like the Mach 8 would do the job for you. ....but check out the new Mach 10. Although it is 10" tall, reports from new owners say it is remarkably more quiet and efficient than the one probably in your RV.
