RE: Yamaha 2400 generator's on-board 12V charger

Accept the fact, that you did it correctly, exactly for what it is intended for an Emg charge to start the vehicle It is not intended to be a stand alone battery charger, or to be left alone unattended, or to be a 12v power supply for other devices

RE: L-16 AGM

PT.. i don't think their going to fit, not unless you plan on stacking the batteries on top of each other, something i would advise against you have not given us the compartment dimensions, but your current layout is basically 14"deep by 28~30" wide, that is the foot print of your three grp 29 i see no way to stick (2) batteries laying down, needing a minimum 12"*17" each, that either 24"*17" or 12*34 now if your compartment is tall, maybe you mean stand them on end then the foot print would be 7*17 each, two batteries on end, one in back one in front 14 deep 17 wide 12 tall

RE: Windows 7 ? Which One To Buy ?

32 bit will run on 32 or 64 bit CPU's 64 bit runs more operations & faster, than a 32 bit, it about the number of instructions that can be performed at the same time and the amount of data that can be processed, the 64 bit cpu has a larger front side BUSS and on board memory cache idk if 64 bit will install and operate on a 32bit CPU pc

RE: Electrical questions, alternator? amps? generator?

Do not use that drawing for electrical layout The converter charger connects to a circuit breaker in the panel NOT the transfer switch The inverter does not connect directly to the breaker panel there MUST BE a transfer switch between inverter and panel, do as not to have a direct short connecting different power sources There are much better wiring diagrams on this forum and the web

RE: What do I need

I put the phone in the sleek cradle and turn on speaker phone For whole RV coverage using the cell phone, the only option is going to cost hundreds of dollars Uses one antenna outside and one antenna inside, which must be mounted on opposite ends off the RV

RE: L-16 AGM

It's not the height he's wondering about, It's the total volume, aka the foot print Assuming his 3 grp 29, are noise in and side by side The L16s would be turned 90° and placed one in front of the other Are two L16s placed together, thicker than the length of a group 29 ?

RE: Whirring noise from inverter

After reading a bit, I flipped a couple of breakers and it seems to go away when I turn off electric water heater breaker If you are not on shore power, why would the wh be on electric from inverter sucking your batteries dry Are you dry camping with the shore cord plugged into the inverter? Then all appliances should be on manual and on propane And if you are on shore power, the water heater should not be wired to the inverter anyway

RE: Dish VIP211Z + hard drive question

Dual/two tuners, will let you watch two channels that are on the same satellite But if the second Channel is on a different satellite, then you need a dish with two lnbs, that is were "skew" comes into play one lnb is pointed at one satellite, the other lnb is pointing at the second satellite, like your home dish

RE: 30 amp cord

You have 50 amp service ? You should not need more power for the griddle and coffee pot Do you mean the griddle and coffee pot are outside on the picnic table ? Doesn't your RV have an outside outlet for things like ? Please clarify the problem

RE: 12 volt electrical

The only time a control board ( fridge furnace water heater ) , does not use power is when the battery is disconnected The on/off switches for these devices do not control input power are not in the input power fused line, they connect to the board to supply a yes/no ..on/off signal So there is always some power draw unless disconnected It is usually in milliamps..but several devices over days or weeks ..yes it can drain the batteries.. this parasitic drain is always there when batteries are connected

RE: Samsung Galaxy S 6 vs Apple iPhone 6?

Assuming you mean more high tech with the phone Goto the VZW store Not a retailer selling multiple brands Goto VZW and look at all the models on display, try them out pick the phone you want.. Assuming you want to keep your grandfathered unlimited plan for your mifi You need to avoid getting any of the new Bundled all in one plans You might very well HAVE to buy your phones out right, Unless you can do a phone only upgrade Getting new smart phones will mean getting new data plans for the phones, which could mean the end of your unlimited data on your mifi Be VERY careful My suggested is to get TEXTING phones, they have keyboards for texting but are not smart phones using data If you want smart features, goto best buy and buy tablets, they can use the Wi-Fi connection on your mifi. And you don't have to get new phones and mess with the chance of losing your unlimited data plan Adding smart phones is going to raise your total monthly cost, and possibly loose your unlimited mifi data

RE: Dish VIP211Z + hard drive question

Is there any way to be able to record a program on satellite and watch another on satellite? One LNB one satellite, even with two tuners you can only record or watch what is on one satellite, If the second Channel is on a different satellite..You can't watch it For multiple satellites, you need a dish with more LNBs

RE: USB All Files Not Being Read??? PROBLEM SOLVED..

Great news..nice to hear you got it working All songs/files in one folder is what it needed BTW FYI ... using a USB memory stick aka thumb drive Is Not burning....It's a file transfer aka.copy Burning is when you put them on a CD or DVD, because the disc is burned by the laser in the write head of the drive, this data can not be deleted or changed

RE: battery charging> which is best

Yes, temperature correction enters the equation. 14.8 volts is not appropriate when camping at Point Barrow on Valentine's Day, Too cold need higher voltage nor Death Valley Junction on the 4th of July. Too hot need lower voltage It's chemistry.. The reactions between the electrolyte and the plates, change , Cold equals slower recharge, need more voltage to compensate and speed up recharge,
