RE: Flip Phone

Tracfone shows two flip phones on their website. The Alcatel runs on ATT and I believe the ZTE flip phone runs on Verizon.

RE: How much water to ad to black tank when starting out.?

I usually use the tank sprayer after dumping so after a few minutes of rinsing, I close the black tank valve but leave the sprayer going long enough add at least a gallon or two.

RE: Need Good Sources for Quality Bulk Solar Cable

Recommend this place for high quality solar materials: AM Solar x2. Thanks. Nice looking wire, but two problems with it -- that is 10 gauge -- I'm looking for 8 gauge as mentioned in my last post. And even at that, this 10 gauge roof wire is pricey at $3 a foot plus shipping! OK, but in your original post you said you were looking for 10 ga.UV protected wire, which is what my link took you to.

RE: 15 Amp Service

We are going to visit family this Christmas & will be parking in their yard & they said we can plug into their house system...but it is only 15 amp...what do we need to NOT turn on with this low amp service? You can get by on 15A if you adhere to what others have suggested.....but you may want to take a look at their house breaker for the garage wall outlets. Often garages are wired for 20A.....it can make a difference. Also suggest using 12gage extension cord instead of lesser 14 or worse 16 gage cord.

RE: Thinking a Battery Monitor.............

1) the shunt is the sensor that measures all current into and out of the battery. It should be installed in the negative battery cable going to chassis ground. It does not need to be readily accessible. The best quality battery monitors do NOT use bluetooth....the sensor connects to the display monitor by wire cable. 2) a battery monitor will work with any charge controller. 3)no comment....I prefer hard wired display - no bluetooth. 5) shunt type sensors are extremely accurate .....Not sure how accurate Hall sensor types are in comparison. Bluetooth is bad? That's a bold assertion. My Victron with Bluetooth works great. For the record, I did NOT say Bluetooth was bad; I merely stated my preference. I will grant, perhaps my comment is out of date now, with the proliferation of Bluetooth in everything.....

RE: Anyone gone on a Cruise?

Original Poster - suggest you find and spend some time reading posts on the forum, " Cruise Critic ". It is a wealth of inside information from those who cruise frequently. https://www.cruisecritic.com/reviews/

RE: Anyone gone on a Cruise?

More importantly in my opinion, you should also be asking what is the best cruise line for you two. ....some are pretty wild.....some with lots of kids.....some more staid for an older crowd. Food can be excellent or lousy depending on cruiseline. Size of the ship is important too. Some of these floating cities are like living in a crowded city. My wife and I like outstanding service outstanding food, nice clean room, good entertainment,a moderate size ship and not a lot of children running about. Celebrity Cruise lines are at the top of our list. PS: I'd vote for the eastern Caribbean cruise. Over the western route.

RE: What is an RV Resort??

Resorts are in the eye of the builder. Its term is usually used to catch travellers as an 'exclusive' clientele, not because it has any exclusive amenity except probably those parks with unit type , clothing option , or age restrictions. Ignore the naming. A resort, park, campground, find your place with your wishes with your fingers, friends and google earth. Review sites such as campgroundreviews.com, campsitephotos.com, tripadvisor.com, are useful, not dependable. you choose what is what is right for you. And don't forget Google Earth / Google Maps - Satellite View are also a good tool to evaluate an RV park and its surroundings.

RE: Large dog

German Shepards are usually on the list of dog breeds banned from many RV parks. Food for thought.

If the OP's Jeep can handle the hitch weight, a mini golf cart on a carrier on back of jeep might work. Mini Golf Carts

RE: TV Antenna Question-Update

It works! :) I have not figured out how to use this with my RV exactly so it does not blow away going down the road at 60 mph. That was one reason to ask about the "net" windage. It looks like there are a couple of ways--worry about that later. Don't overlook the fact that 60mph into a 30mph headwind is 90mph, or more! That cheap thing may work well, but was not designed to hold up in that kind of sustained winds....nor motion vibration when mounted on an RV roof.

RE: TV Antenna Question-Update

Since most digital TV stations have been moved to the UHF spectrum, and assuming you are not too distant from stations, that antenna should work well. Yes, but can I do without the "net"? BTW this antenna has a neat feature, which is why I got it. It rotates with the power for that also coming up the coax along with the usual amplification power. Pardon my misunderstanding....I have been in the industry many decades and did not know to what you were referring when you said "net". That is apparently a reflector for mainly the UHF part of the antenna.....and yes, removing it will degrade the gain of the antenna. The long element is for VHF.....and likely not needed for almost everywhere. I would not drive an RV with any of this antenna up, so don't understand why you want to remove part of it.

RE: battery charging

Float charge at that voltage should be fine......but if a wet cell just check the water level occasionally.

RE: Is a fuse a fuse?

Has anyone heard of a solar panel short circuiting in its internal power connections? I have not.... just seems like a lit of work for nothing.

RE: Is a fuse a fuse?

Not sure I understand why one would fuse a solar panel. What rating fuse would you use? ...the solar panel is simply incapable of sourcing higher current than its maximum output.....a fuse could never blow. The other end is not a current source assuming it is a charge controller, so nothing that could provide current to blow a fuse there, either..... am I missing something?
