RE: compact fridge

is this for a weekend, a week, or full time ? that 3 ampHrs be hour, will be 72ampHrs per 24hours 170w flat on the roof, might avg 8~10 amps in good sun it just might be a break even situation, on good sunny days and a loss on cloudy weather bad days necessitating the use of a generator for catch up and this does not include other power uses it really depends on the cycle time of the fridge and how much power is actually used everyday

RE: compact fridge

our apt sized residential uses roughly 90~100w BUT the start surge is 900w, that is compressor start up thats the thing about motors, especially induction motors like compressors or circular saws its not the running amps/watts, its that huge start surge

RE: Why don't RVs need an earth ground for AC circuits

it Real Simple the utility power is connected to earth ground therefore circuits connected to utility power need an earth ground as a safety if something shorts in an appliance or device, and earth ground completes the circuit and trios the breaker, rather than the device/appliance/tool being electrically HOT and you being the ground to complete the circuit the RV genset or portable genset, is NOT connected to earth ground, if something shorts in the RV there is NO electrical circuit between RV and earth or portable tool/appliance and earth so power cannot flow between RV or tool and you to the ground and back to the generator but it can with utility power RV genset or portable genset is "isolated power" if you want to drive a 10ft ground rod and ground your generator go ahead and do so, but you are safer with out it

RE: My Ac/dc converter caught fire last night

Looks like an old Magtec converter, but I might be wrong Unusual, converters are normally cool enough so they don't get That hot

RE: Ecoworthy MPPT + 6 volt batts

7.65v sounds more like "equalizing" voltage i would go 14.4~14.6 for absorption on GC batteries

RE: Verizon to up the cost of unlimited data plans

way back when i paid $49.99 for 5 gig then got the NEW unlimited on my then Motorola windows smartphone nobody likes paying more, but $20 more a month is not going to break me, and is a lot better than the present alternatives i already increased my total monthly costs by $47.75 a month i can handle another $20 to keep what i've got its cheaper than buying a new $600 smart phone on monthly Verizon payments i've only been out of contract, on month to month for the past year i reupped the contract in in the summer of 2012, so i only went off contract in fall of 2014 i don't even mine reupping to keep the data price, as long as i can reup with out buying a new phone i just recently bought my S4 New, and don't need an S6 or iPhone thanks to the OP for the Heads Up now i need to check on the contract status situation i'm NOT buying a new phone.. cheaper to pay the extra $20 than a new phone

RE: Wingman on Sensar...No Joy!!!

if you have the space just flip the complete head to the other side of the mount just remember that you will reverse back and front of the antenna (180*) as far as which way it is pointing when elevated and turned Unfortunately, the Winegard Sensar can only be mounted in one direction. There is no flip-flop option. flip the whole complete head no problem pulling the bolts and putting the head on the other side of the support tubes

i really don't understand all the hassle IF a dedicated inverter and circuit is used..a UPS in NOT NEEDED the UPS to prevent drop out is only needed when switching between power sources to prevent drop out from the time delay there is no drop out and time delay when using a dedicated inverter circuit that is NOT switching an external source
