RE: Guidance using Zamp Solar Controller

From Zamp Solar technical support this morning: " Zamp Solar Hi and thank you for contacting Zamp Solar. You can absolutely leave your Controller disconnected from your Batteries over the course of the Winter. You will see a B01 error code but that won't have any risk of harming your system. " I other words, you do NOT need to disconnect your solar panels.

RE: Guidance using Zamp Solar Controller

If you contacted Zamp already, why didn't you ask them? They have excellent customer service . Just a phone call away. Frankly, as I already said, never an issue for me in past years to leave Zamp as is. there is no off switch. Additional, with battery disconnect switch off, no need to remove batteries anyway . The Zamp controller bypasses that switch and will continue to keep batteries topped up, even with a cover over them.

RE: Guidance using Zamp Solar Controller

I have never seen the need to 'turn off' the Zamp solar charge controller in our RV for storage. Why would one want to?

RE: TV and Internet

Has anyone made frequent speed tests with a reputable tool such as Ookla in order to determine if slow or overloaded Internet is the problem or something else ....

RE: No battery power

Auto transfer switch has nothing to do with the 12v battery system; iit only switches 120VAC between shore power input and generator. Quite likely the problem is an inadvertently switched battery disconnect switch.

RE: Solar Install

I should have exempted rubber roof from my previous post. My concern is you having enough cross members in your roof to provide adequate mounting for solar panels.

RE: Solar Install

Avoid holes all-together by using Scotch 3M VHB double sided heavy duty tape - # 4950.

RE: Is changing to a quieter AC worth it?

Our AirXcel (Coleman) Mach 10 that came with our motorhome was atrociously loud... you couldn't hold a conversation with it running. Finally replaced it with a RecPro Houghton AC3501. Wow! What a difference. Very happy with it. AirXcel has come out with a new model Mach 10 Quiet model that is reported great by others but very hard to currently find one.

RE: Motor vehicle laws. Complicated jurisdiction question.

My opinion.... your license plate issue is near identical to a front license plate requirement.... some states don't require a front license plate...and don't issue the second plate. Would be awkward if law enforcement wrote you a ticket on that! Regarding you insurance issue.... sounds like the officer was really straining to write you the ticket... and as he said, you'll probablynget that thrown out.... nice to have the traffic court use Zoom, at least. But do consider.... you have no liability insurance and I am somewhat concerned where an out of state driver with no insurance can cause an accident and have no insurance policy to provide to the victim..... the court could hold that same view.... so be prepared.

RE: My new race car alternator for LiFePO4 batt bank

Simple. Install a DC/DC charger in the alternator charge line to your rv battery bank. Victron makes a top notch one. P

RE: Rec Pro ???

Purchased a Houghton air conditioner from RecPro last year. Everything from customer service to the ordering process and delivery was excellent. No complaints.

RE: New smartphone direct-to-Starlink satellite service

How the heck are they going to use 1/10 of a watt to transmit to low earth orbit?? Essentially, a new generation of satellites, bigger, more powerful. Read the link in my other post here.

RE: tow a rwd car on a tow dolly

If you Google search around on this issue, you'll probably find out that this is a Lawyer created issue, not a technical issue, and that many RVers are successfully flat towing the Scion.... the 2013 FRS included. PS: the 2014 Flat Tow guide shows it as flat towable.....

RE: Battery over charging.

If your battery is a wet cell, have you checked the electrolyte levels lately? Voltage will rise as the plates become exposed to air... and battery will get hot and hiss as more electrolyte is gassed off.

RE: Battery Problems

Whatever is supposed to charge your battery is not working correctly. Look in that direction....

RE: Tire pressures

To make it clear to the OP - tire pressure can easily and safely exceed maximum tire pressure ratings while driving. This is normal. Do not fret over it nor readjust!

RE: Tank cleaning wand - how much water does it leave?

Just stick the wand into a 5 gallon bucket and time how long it takes to fill to 2 gallons or maybe 3 gallons. Then do not exceed that time when cleaning the tank. It is a good idea to always leave a couple gallons in the black tank after draining ... if for no other reason it keeps the slide valve gasket lubricated.

RE: Fireworks

I'd highly recommend you get your dog a " Thunder-shirt ". They are available everywhere, including Amazon. Not a marketing gimmick .. dog owners all over the nation will attest to their benefits. Google it. And I suggest you order one quickly before the 4th arrives.
