RE: Champion 2k in storage for three years. Advice starting it?

I like RVPapas suggestion. On big engine restarts they turn on the lube oil pump for 5-minutes before cranking. My Kubota has a 24 volt gear pump that pressures up to 15 PSI to purge the Luberfiner lines.

RE: Estimated generator price

Horsepacking I saw a young lady carry a 5 gallon water jug away from where she dunked it into a lake. She washed her hair spread out an emergency space blanket then laid down on a granite slab hair splayed out on the shiny blanket and 15 minutes later she arose her waist length hair apparently dry.

RE: emergency start has been hardwired?

She needs to learn what ignition A and B means. If the alteenator was charging how to tell house batteries from vehicle battery. Then re-connect all of it correctly. Is the alternator functioning? Or is it connected to the house bank. Even for the most gifted of professionals this is a multi hour job AFTER they learn the depth of the error. A knothead can and will CONTINUE to switch wires until they are 100% buffalowed into exhaustion. Then they sell the rig after charging the batteries. Nice folks huh?

RE: emergency start has been hardwired?

Sorry but this may utterly overwhelm your ability to diagnose and correct. You need handheld meters and a 12 volt testlight. Doing a repair by guesswork and hit and miss is impossible. .

RE: WFCO WF-8725 - How Do I Add Another Circuit/Breaker

You need to take a photo of your breakrt to Id your breaker and match it.

RE: This charger/converter + this battery = ?

Yep and how about power post and home recovery ability? Most garbage can't acheive it connected for 1,000 hours

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

My point is this. Why blow 200 bucks possibly by letting a motorhome sit with empty tank when that is the worst thing you can do re condensation? The chance of fuel decreasing in price is a laugh. My comment was meant as a friendly heads up.I could not imagine some of the double-digit IQ insults that followed. Turn a win win situation into insults Here is my ending comment A comment by Mark Twain Never argue with an idiot They'll drag you doen to thier level And beat you with experience

Insist on a USA Made breaker. I threw out my inventory of chinese pretend breakers.

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

Therefore Sta-Bil is useless and no motorhome that sits for 6 months will start without extensive repairs? And a full tank gathers more condensation than an empty tank??

RE: Looking for Fridge Suggestions

Most minis are Chinese try and find Korean or Taiwanese. Leave the serene caterpillar junk for the wealthy who can afford it. A long warranty is not infallible but it's good benchmark. If your unit uses rear not side cooling simply pasting on a cut up heavy duty space blanket top and sides and pasting it to the reefer makes an improvement in efficiency. Look on Amazon for -Heavy Duty- Space Blanket.

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

Nothing, there is no room for complaints. They are saved for someone who suggests saving a few dollars. Then morphs right into the "Sky Is Falling" with no added comments. This is actually sad because these morphs detract substantially from anything you say, hyperbole is the correct description, here.

Pick up your telephone and dial the president of Mexico who just issued a statement "Due to the looming large price increase in fuel from the USA I regret to inform you of immediate liter price increases" And tell him he is badly misinformed. Tell him that "BS himself" says it's only a rumor. 70% of fuel in Mexico is imported from the U.S. This is not a one-stage affair. Saudi Arabia is going to drag us kicking and screaming into the middle of this. But I clearly stated this early on. Like a first grade teacher, I clearly must not append anything without recapping 100% of what was said 10 minutes ago. Take the advice or leave it. Ridicule it and I will have more fun in four months than you will ever believe. And I am finished with this "CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?" is a fitting finish. My son-in-law just paid sixteen hundred dollars this morning for a 400-gallon delivery of diesel. Five hours later comes Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's announcement. My God! what a freaking coincidence. https://www.unotv.com/noticias/portal/negocios/detalle/mexico-no-subira-el-precio-de-gasolinas-pese-a-alza-en-precio-del-petroleo-860497/

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

I do not sweat twenty-five cents either. I sweat the TWO DOLLARS per gallon increase. Different income levels decree different emphasis on different points of logistics. MUST it be pointed out that many countries have refined fuel prices far and away more expensive than the USA? Shale oil is premium stuff and if you believe anyone would suffer a huge loss of income because of "patriotism" I can only shake my head. The strategic oil storage would last perhaps three months and to jeopardize that cushion over a spike in oil prices is flat admitting no knowledge of how things work. Simple words to calm a jittery market and not one fluid ounce of petroleum reserves used or even threatened. Political word mastery at it's best. Some of you have what -- a tendency to speak before you read, my assertions specified long term. For the short attention deficit disordered it means four days. It is meant for 4 months. Wait and see. Or does every motorhome sit on the driveway 100% filled? Or empty? Quicksilver tries to remain filled. When pump prices were ascending rapidly down here and before the swamp was bypassed and outages occurred weekly, I saved eight hundred dollars hard cash by purchasing optimally. Remember my life is micro finances, not self-described bigwheel. In April 2020 we shall see "How's the cake doing?" "It's been in the oven ten minutes!" "Well we SHOULD know something more than only THAT! by now" Amazing. Simply amazing.

RE: This charger/converter + this battery = ?

If it actually initiates 14.4 regardless, that is a great option. I have read conflicting comments so I had to ask. Thank you, sir.

RE: This charger/converter + this battery = ?

Instead of blurbs and excerpts, I'll go into detail on the AGM charging matter. It's a lot easier to equalize a flooded battery correctly than it is to correctly CONDITION an absorbed glass mat batteryBOTH types of battery have absolutely no available device you can purchase to do the job correctly without modification Batteries that are fully cycled like BFL13's are much more sensitive than a weekend warrior'sA thousand hours connected to a power pole manages to restore some of the ampere-hour shortage caused by pretend chargersSo my advice is almost always directed at AGMS that see generator charging or heavy cycling for longer than a weekPermanent loss of capacity may be restored by conditioning which only can be corrected by following Lifeline's conditioning instructions to the letterNo pretend charger can even approach thisRecharging a slightly cycled AGM with 100 hours of light cycling followed by a thousand hours of power pole charging is a world apart from a regimen of 50% discharging followed by attempting to recover by running a generator (2nd attempt at trying to explain this)The more deep the discharge on ANY battery the more strict the 100% recovery becomesA simple fix for a smart chargers major malfuntion would be to push a button and automatically initiate a four hour 14.40 voltage limited chargeThe four hour charge would be very useful for wet battery recovery but California has legislated that this feature would be unlawful. Do you see any smart charger with this feature?No wayDoes the battery care what you think or California legislates?NoIt must follow the rules of chemistry and die an unnaturally early deathA 20% lack of battery capacity is almost impossible to confirm by guessworkYour generator run time knowsIf you don't mind paying for a 100 amp-hour battery and hauling around a 75 amp hour battery neither do IIt's when an AGM battery loses 35% or greater that most people realize something is not rightOnly a full recovery conditioning can attempt to restore -some- of the lost capacityThis is not a disadvantage verus a wet battery which continues to sulfateMy nine-year old -lightly used- Lifeline battery was just measured ending SaturdayIt retains 94% capacityThis is not phenomenalA heavily cycled Lifeline would do the same after a thousand 50% cyclesNow stop and figure out your days of average vacation divided into one thousandAll due to the fact that the battery was not refilled to 100% EVER None of this is important to people who don't mind purchasing new batteries every three years. In my case, eight hundred dollars means something to me -- a month's worth of pension needlessly lost. And again I mention the difference between how hard you use a battery and the length of time it is subject to the abuse. And this is qualified by the amount percentage of undercharging and length of time spent undercharged. People who scorn advice are the first to yell about how 200 amp hours runs out in the middle of the night. Shortages are correctable but the correction is not automatically resolved by any converter. The most one can discover is the least offensive to rectify.
