RE: Charging battery with Honda 2000

Will my Honda 2000 charge the battery as fast on eco as it will fill throttle? Better question is; how aggressive is my on board converter / charger? Some folks put the gen in eco, and it putters along for 12+ hours because the on board converter never kicks into high gear.

RE: Getting an error

Must just be me and 2old being blocked. Tried accessing the site from Chicago, LA and Vancouver, same result - not working.

RE: The best camping spots are free.

Much harder to come by on the East Coast. From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Atlantic ocean. Places you can just stop and camp are few, and far between. Not much land that is not in use around here. X2 ... Michigan isn't part of "the East" but it's a very old state, almost all the land is privately owned. See a clearing off a road, 9 out of 10 it's private. Will you get caught? Maybe not especially in the UP.

RE: Paying for public campgrounds

Check...because I put a $20 bill in one once and never did give me any change back:) I booked a week long site for myself and some family, with an extra vehicle and the total was $86, so I put a $100 in the ranger having forgotten the checkbook at home. Next day the host came by, gave me $14 in change. I was very surprised.

RE: Paying for public campgrounds

Paying the iron ranger is the only thing I still use checks for. Not for any purpose, other than the amounts seldom total up to a convenient cash amount. Some may think, ah by paying check, if the ranger/manager claims to have not received payment I can void that check and write another one. Well, at least my bank charges quite a sum to void a check, and it's a process. Lost money either way.

RE: GM Colorado bent frame towing 2,100 lbs

Sh*t happens, that's why you buy insurance.

RE: Lights stay on

Marker lights aren't connected to the coach electric system unless someone did a modification. Possibly a short in the bargman cable or the junction box it disappears into. The marker lights are all grounded, so they just need 12v from somewhere to turn on. Leakage between two corroded wire nuts for example, is enough to light up LED lights.

RE: Just checking.....

Starting next weekend, taking off for nine or ten days. Hope to find a not too busy rustic campground or two to visit.

RAM uConnect Bluetooth

2017 Ram with the small screen uConnect system. Can't get it to "start" in Bluetooth. It'll come up with Radio or Sirius even if Bluetooth was the last source. 2013 Ram started with BT so did 2011 Charger, both with the uConnect system. Am I doing something wrong, is my radio malfunctioning, or did Ram remove that feature?

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

I applaud all these RVers who tow 400 to 500 miles without taking any breaks.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

The push to capitalize on going green is really driving technological progress on batteries, motors and control technology. Reduced and lithium free battery chemistries are making significant progress. High temperature silicon carbide semiconductors are handling massive amounts of energy more efficiently than ever. Multi phase DC brushless motors keep climbing in torque output. I don't think we'll have a problem replacing an $80,000+ F350 with an equally luxurious electric in a few years time.

RE: Pandora music Bluetooth iPhone 7

Don't have an iPhone or Jensen, but my phone does seem to lose sync with my radio display from time to time. The only fix I've found is restarting the phone. Don't know what causes it.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

What do the Europeans drive on farms or into the oil fields? As an arrogant selfish American, I don't really care if the Europeans loose their ability to haul campers around.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Wait, what? How many of us RV owners are towing with sedans and compact SUVs right now? That's the market electric vehicles are currently targeting. It'll be a long while before pickup trucks get "outlawed", but they'll quickly become more expensive to run.

RE: Solar panel lifespan...

So my question is two fold. Do solar panels age/degrade while in storage the same as if they are in constant use? We camp maybe 25-30 days/year and the rest of the time the panels would be inside my dark garage so will they loose the same .5-1%/year efficiency as panels in constant use? Secondly, I'm looking at the Renogy suitcase(Two 50 watt panels)with 20 amp charger controller and the alligator clips. Do any of you fellow campers have experience with this company or product good or bad? All I'm really hoping to do with this is assist with my two group 27 battery charging needs... Depends on the construction. The semiconductors won't degrade in storage, since they're not being bombarded with radiation. Some of the plasticy materials may yellow or fog, with or without sun. I have a 10w panel stored in my back shed, out of the sun, been there for years. I notice the plastic is yellowing already, and becoming less clear. I also have a much older mostly glass and metal panel, 5 watt, and it looks brand new.

RE: BBQ Baby Back Ribs using an Instant Pot questions

Can the instapot be used as a keep-warm and serve device? At my local grocer they sell pre-cooked ribs for the same cost as raw. Buy a few racks and toss em in your pressure cooker to reheat for a few minutes and serve?

RE: BBQ Baby Back Ribs using an Instant Pot questions

Skip the pressure cooker and use the Weber. Try the hot and fast method, works good for baby backs. Build a hot pile of coal on one side of the grill. Peel off the silver skin, rub down with oil, salt, pepper, no sugar or sugary rubs yet! Clean and oil the grill top, slap the rack of ribs down, cover, come back 20 minutes later, flip, cover again for 20 minutes. In the mean time, prepare a piece of HD al-foil large enough to wrap the rack with Make a boat with the foil, put the ribs in, add a bit of beer, cider, apple juice, whatever, and close up the boat Move boat to cooler side of grill, cover and let cook for at least an hour. Turn the boat 180 deg maybe 30 minutes later so the other side faces the coals. When you can't take it any more, open up the boat. Two choices, make your own sauce from the contents of the boat, or use a canned sauce. Enjoy!

RE: Amp Draw

DC amps. I don't have any gauges on my AC side yet.
