RE: Not a TriMetric, but for $20 might be worth trying out...

use with charger ... with out external power supply your converter is A charger it will be powered by your batteries, while reading discharge and the converter will supply power while charging i bought the 200a version because of my 1250w inverter i love this thing right now i'm reading 13.99v 4.7amp charge and full 100% charged don't forget to set AH capacity at 220~240 depending on your batteries charge them all the way up then set the AMP Hr count , then it will show 100% full and count down during discharge

RE: Does Furnace Run on DC Power??

Speak at 7amps from a 100w panel No way 14 amp hrs put your battery back at full charge voltage might have been close to normal, BUT Amp hrs from running the furnace blower, were not fully replaced battery not fully charged, no matter what you think try that for a week, in just a few more days, those batteries would not make it through the night maybe you got a majic blower that only draws 3 amps and only needs to run two hours total for the whole night what was the temp inside the RV ? maybe you do camp in a parallel universe, where the laws of energy use are different not trying to be ornery, but what your saying doesn't match my experience with furnace blowers and 100w of solar

RE: can verizon hotspot be used with tmobile service data plan.

picky picky all google phones are NON-branded, but carrier approved (with the correct technology) its part of the agreement to use Android which is from google i once owned a google nexus, the first one.. and guess where i got, at Verizon besides we are talking about wifi hotspot devices go ahead buy a Tmo hotspot from ebay and stick your verizon LTE SIM card in it, and let us know how that works out

RE: can verizon hotspot be used with tmobile service data plan.

Verizon Corp Is know for being very picky The device has to be recognized as being Verizon branded, before it can be activated on Verizon's network Just buying a vzw lte SIM card and sticking it in a Tho branded device will not work Never mind the fact that two of the lte bands are the same Then there is the problem of non matching 3G technology, for when lte is not available This is why, if you search Google and eBay for hotspots You will see some Sprint devices reprogrammed for Verizon But i have not seen any Tmo devices adv for Verizon Or Verizon devices adv for Tmobile I don't know how picky Tmo towers/Corp is about device branding But again is the same technology problem, if the Tmo SIM works only two LTE bands will be usable, and no 3G service, you could find yourself with no service for the hotspot, even where a phone has a strong Tmobile signal

RE: Class A house charging system issue help needed

not sure where is the circuit the disconnect is, but should be .. between the batteries and everything else also i'm 99% sure the converter wires goto the battery Not the distribution panel other wires run from the batteries to the panel any RV that has an inverter charger the distribution panel and charger are seperate units NOT combined NOW if you have converter only no inverter, and the breaker panel is down on the floor, thats different, thats old combined style yes it is still in use, but NOT where you have inverter/charger combo units only in some 30amp converter only RVs

RE: 98 34' Allegro - Chevrolet - Runs great and then just dies

Distributor ignition module, aka high voltage coil might be going bad

RE: Battery cables

Yes Slownsy Wiring really depends on how the batteries are spaced...aka..sitting Most diagrams create two 12v then parallel them My drawing creates two large 6v then series them together I think is more stable, but that's me

RE: Testing new inverter?

Very usual shipping I think who ever did the packing, messed up

RE: Class A house charging system issue help needed

50' foot, Do you you mean 50" inches Awful big RV to have a 50 ft wire run for the converter to batteries Check all connections on each end , disconnect and inspect Chances are dirty corroded connections or cable inside the terminals

RE: can verizon hotspot be used with tmobile service data plan.

IDK about ATT lte roaming but that was not the question roaming on a pardner network is not the same thing as activating a branded device on a different carrier technology

RE: ATT doing away with satellite TV

not gonna happen in my life time

RE: can verizon hotspot be used with tmobile service data plan.

NO.. Tmo and ATT uses GSM/GRS/HSPA ? VZW and Sprint use CDMA/EV/LTE some Sprint devices can be made to wprk on VZW by changing certain 'parameters' on their internal settings you might be able to use an ATT hotspot on Tmo once it was 'correctly' setup

RE: AT&T/Direct TV to discontinue satellite use

be obsolete in 3-5 yrs..20 years before streaming only NOT at the present rate of wireless data expansion they want to go streaming, they are going to have to provide unlimited video data or people won't migrate/change

RE: AT&T/Direct TV to discontinue satellite use

seems strange to me didn't they launch a new satellite just a few years ago good for ten yrs or more seems like they would be abandoning good equipment, unless they sell it to somebody else

shout out to PowerMax

i mentioned in several places that i had not had much luck with powermax, and sent one back in April under warranty after conversing with Errin at powermax via email seems it had arrived with no paperwork, or it got lost during the unpacking and login at reciving he sent me a replacement and even offered me an upgrade to the adjustable model, which i accepted i've been using it on off several times a week for about three weeks it has been performing very well, and i'm very happy with this one 'so far' i even did a kill a watt volt-amps reading on it (for another thread about converters and generators) i just wanted to let everyone know they will response to customers, and Errin was a pleasure to converse with he apologized for the delay
