RE: Splicing 30A plug to 50 amp cord

Yes splice both the red and black from the 50 amp cable to the black wire on the 30 amp cutoff adapter White on white Green on green That's what the adapter does internally I would suggest fridge on l.p. And water heater off or l.p. Batteries should be charged so A/C should be only load

RE: Generator is not charging house batteries

120v from shore or generator to transfer switch From TS to breaker panel From panel to converter There are two possibilities that I can think of Somebody wired the converter in front of the TS directly on the shore input Or Your converter electronics do not like the generator output wave form, and is refusing to turn on This is the much more likely possibility

RE: Vintage British Rigs

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/10/08/1412761570796_wps_31_Pictured_1969_Shurland_Ca.jpg Look closely at the signs in the trailer behind the fruits Sign on far right is advertising 1982 model Sign on left had the price 16,531 British pounds? Those look like park models Another picture further down the page, is clearly a sales lot not a "caravan park" http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/10/08/1412762385531_wps_57_Pictured_1980_s_Caravan_p.jpg Signs adv new 4 berth aka 4 beds models , 16' ft? Can't be meters that would be 48 ft All lined up side by side on the gravel lot The person at the paper, writing the commentary doesn't know what he is Describing And that Couple escaping the wwi Look more like a pair of young ladies on a Holiday Or An adv brochure picture Not somebody fleeing in desperation The Daily Mail, is very good at messing up what would other wise be interesting articles

RE: More Solar for "Us"

The controller does everything The cell phone is merely a wireless remote for accessing the data and settings The phone does NOT control the solar I chose that 300 minutes, remember we full-time, I want to maintain voltage not have it drop off, my batteries are Never not being used If the controller went into float and the fridge is on and other things using power It would start discharging the batteries instead of maintaining voltage and amps for the longest possible time And I chose that 3mv for similar reasons regarding our use

RE: Adding a 220 volt panel question

Legal to have both , as long as the output circuits are separate and not cross wired Yes you can install a 220v box just for the washer dryer and any other 220 item you want Or you can replace the 30 amp box with a new 50 amp and feed all circuits from the new box Which ever way is easiest for you

RE: 2009 Safari Simba

We have a 1995 Safari Sahara from before they were bought out by Monaco I think everybody that has an original or a Monaco version is pretty happy with them

RE: Edison Batteries

My 675 amp hrs weight 525#, for a 50% DoD of 337.5 amp hrs used My avg nightly use is 20% aka 135 amp hrs A set of 30 Edison's cells providing a total of 336 amp hrs, 80% equal 268 amp hrs, 50% equal 168 amp hrs Might work, but weighs 540# and has total less energy if need arises And costs a lot more The only advantage is length of life, does the cost equal this for even the hard core of grid camper I think a fixed off grid home is the place for these I would like to see the price of Lth come down so I could reduce the weight and increase the life

RE: House batteries off gassing with Tripp Lite

disconnect the solar panels from the controller then disconnect the batteries you want to protect the controller and you want NO charging going to bad batteries in fact might be a good idea to separate the batteries extra precaution against internal short causing overheating

RE: Okay, discuss.

Must be the Man Cave / playroom / home theater with the 72" TV As far as the weight, it doesn't look over loaded, maybe he beefed up the suspension Just Bechtel on windy days

RE: Using NOCO G7200 to desulfate a pair of T-105's

I suspect that if the batteries are accepting charge current during this process It won't reach 16v until the end of the cycle

RE: Grape Solar 40 Amp PWM Solar Charge Controller

BFL13 wrote: "Solar controllers only show what the solar panels are doing, not what is going to the battery and how they are doing. Solar output goes to rig systems first, and anything left over goes to the batteries. Same with converters. A Trimetric monitor on the batteries only shows what is happening with the batteries, including whatever the solar can provide from upstream of the Tri's shunt. You have to subtract the Trimetric amps from the solar amps to see how many amps are going to other loads. There is a solar controller that has two shunts ISTR that does both jobs, forget its name." True thats why i have the remote amphr kw power meter thats tracks power into and out of the battery is programmable for battery bank size and shows me the status in both amphrs and percent of charge
