RE: Ford Starting /House Charging Question

Ford start relay has NOTHING TO DO WITH battery charging Chassis or house In your case, The charge relay is only wired to the "run" side of the ignition, and only active when the key is in the run position, it might even be tied to the fuel pump relay circuit and only active with engine running On the start mode of the ignition it does not engage/activate Or you would not have needed to use that long jumper cables

RE: 12 v to 12 v trickle charger

The one i posted was simply an example Posted because it showed the size dimensions And i assume his system DC is more than a Flat 12v which is only 50% SOC Between solar and alternator power when driving or shore power when parked, there should be no problem with a proper input voltage that is high enough, being available to drive the DC converter

RE: Need help replacing charging circuit solenoid.

Blf Where is the charge solenoid You don't need long jumper cables You just need to jump the heavy terminals together on the solenoid To connect the two systems I have done it numerous times on other RVs For people that didn't know You are right. I'll see if that works. It is a long run of #10 from the solenoid/starter to the house though. Solenoid is up front with the engine battery. With #10 wire i would connect the terminals and wait a few minutes before hitting the start switch Let it transfer a few amps forward to the weak chassis battery and mitigate the surge and the voltage drop from the house battery

RE: Need help replacing charging circuit solenoid.

What did I miss? Charge/jump start relay, should not keep alternator from powering vehicle, standard dash gauge is for vehicle battery Sounds like dirty connections for battery cable and stater cable etc.. At the relay

After market install ! If the battery is outside the generator anything is possible

RE: 12 v to 12 v trickle charger

DROCK dc to DC converter Many different sizes on Amazon I used one on the safari to keep the chassis batteries topped up Or maybe a Harbor freight trickle charger Plug into generator connect to battery Less than $10

RE: Solar charge current

Yeah, that's why it's there. So - here's a silly example. If I had a big array and one battery, the charge controller would limit the 50+ amps to perhaps 4 amps to the one battery? No..if it did, I would change controllers DOES your converter limit charge to 4 amps DOES YOUR ALTERNATOR LIMIT CHARGE TO 4 AMPS It would take days to recharge the batteries Charge rate is applied voltage versus battery resistance My converter can do 75 amps My previous RV I installed over 600+ ways of solar panels

I know the halogen bulbs can be replaced But Can the headlight be disassembled to clean the inside of the lenses I've done the exterior clean and restore, with the mguires plastic polish and UV protection spray They are clear not yellow, but there are spots on the inside of the lenses

RE: Generator 2000i problems

When you close the vent It is pulled closed and compresses a spring When you open it the spring pushes it open Possibly gummed up and stuck Clean it with alcohol or gasoline Allow it to dry out in the open position
