RE: Wierd Email

Check to see if in your email program communications preferences have been changed from 'see images' to 'plain text only' .

RE: Decal protection on fiberglass side

What product do you use to protect your decals from sun? Aerospace 303 ! Without any doubt, the best.

RE: How to increase laptop WIFI speed

I'm wondering if the problem is in your devices, or perhaps the router or the Internet Service Provider? I'd try hooking the laptop up directly to a router Ethernet port and measure your speed.... bypassing all WiFi potential issues.

RE: connect coach and house batteries?

What you need is called Trik-L-Start. What KD4UPL said. Works great on our coach too, letting our solar or shore power harge both house batteries and coach battery..

RE: Surge Protector Scorched

I would certainly NOT trust that surge protector with a scorched post. No telling what damage was done in the cable or inside the unit. I'd replace it. NOTE: If you had had a Progressive Industries EMS unit, it would be covered by their Lifetime warranty...... just saying....

RE: Clear2o RV Water Filter

I use the Clear2O filters and do not see any significant reduction in water flow. I appreciate knowing I am getting superior filtration with a solid carbon block filter.

RE: New Phone

Hi, As of July 2022 T-Mobile is dropping g3 voice service. That is going to mean you can't use them except for voip programs such as Whatsapp. I hate this forced obsolescence. I received a free Alcatel MyFlip A405DL Flip phone from Tracfone when they notified that 3G was going away. Nice little phone with all features but compact and works on 4G.

RE: 3M N95 masks

RE: Mystery Battery Draw While Parked UPDATE

It may be tedious but I'd start removing fuses, one at a time, check current draw after each fuse removed ... reinstall the removed fuse and move on.

RE: Malheur/Burns Oregon in May to see the birds

The Burns RV Park on the east end of Burns certainly has room for you.

RE: Sizing a battery bank. Ah VS wh?

You were making a big mistake in your AmpHour calculation -- assuming all your appliances run off 120VAC. Your Inverter will draw approximately 100 Amps from the battery in order to provide 10 Amps of 120 Volts AC. Rule of thumb is a ratio of 10 to 1.

RE: Advice on replacing my IOTA battery charger for boondocking

The Progressive Dynamics PD9245C is a fine unit that would easily service your needs. It does NOT come with a remote control unit unless you order that. I have this charger in my mini motor home and know literally hundreds of others with same unit ... and have never heard any complaints.

RE: which caulk

Winnebago recommends a Polyether sealant such as Manus 75-AM . It has better adhesion and more importantly, better flexibility for the front cap junction than self leveling types. I re-did mine with it .... and when dry I installed 4" Eternabond on top of the seam. I doubt I will ever have to address that seam seal again.

RE: The phone you always wanted

We recently upgraded from our old iphone6's to iphone11's primarily because the batteries were needing to be replaced. We intentionally did not go with the iphone12 as there is limited or no availability of 5G in our area, operating in 5G with no 5G service depletes the battery faster, and we do nothing on our phones that need 5G any way. Having the "latest and greatest" means nothing to us. It is very easy to just turn off 5G and its associated power drain in an iPhone 12.

RE: Loading generator

Any reason you can't just plug the little electric heater into an outside outlet?....or if no outside outlet, run an extension cord to inside?

RE: Laptop battery stored in a cold car...?

In my opinion, if a completely turned off laptop cannot go for 5 days without significant battery depletion, there's something wrong with it.

RE: Tire spray protection ... what do you prefer ?

Aerospace 303 does NOT contain any petroleum distillates. It is water based, and it is the ONLY Tire protective product you will find any tire manufacturers recommending.

RE: Class B that sleeps 4 adults?

Original Poster says he's looking for a Class B. A Class B is a complete van. I doubt one can find a B with 4 seats and sleeps 4 too. Better to look at small Class C unit on a cutaway chassis. ( some people call them B+ ).

RE: Anderson connectors: if too small, is that a bottleneck?

Ed, I am the OP, and I am again showing my ignorance here -- why would a 120 wat portable panel (like mine) be immune to a voltage drop? Is the drop worse for more powerful solar panels? The more I read the posts on this forum, the more I wish I had taken some electrical engineering courses in college, rather than a bunch of soft social sciences!! ;) Your 120 Watt panel can only output about 6 Amps max, ( under optimum conditions. ) voltage drop in the circuit is directly proportional to your current.... and to the resistance of your connecting circuit. You have not stated what your connectong circuit is. May I assume you are going to use 10 gage wire and it won't exceed 30 feet? The resistance of that wire and a single connector plug is so minimal for your 120 W panel that it isn't worth fretting over. Use the connector you want. You will be fine.

RE: Anderson connectors: if too small, is that a bottleneck?

The Original Poster made referral to his 'Portable Panel. I doubt all the concerns over voltage drop through a connector for a 100 or 200W panel is going to be significant loss under any circumstances. Further, I stand behind my recommendation for not using Anderson Power Pole connectors for this situation. They are simply not that physically robust or weatherproof. The Zamp 2 pin connectors would be the better choice.
