No Not Gel cells they would probably rupture the gel and permanently be damaged

RE: INVERTER SELECTION HELP?

90w at 120v = 0.8amp thats 8 amps at 12v, and does not include conversion loss the cig plug did not have enough power capacity ? i run a box fan on high plus the PC tv etc using a 300w go power pure sine wave 600w surge, assuming this was in the RV, i really doubt the aux TV 12v outlet which is connected to the wiring for the lights, has enough capacity to fully power an inverter and run your fan ? what outlet did you use ? maybe the DASH cig plug would run the inverter and fan

RE: Other propane ceramic heaters

Must be that some of these little heaters don't have the propane connection but the one in the pic you posted does. The little brass circle inside the hole on the front of the heater base is where it connects. Way cheaper to run on propane than on those little butane cans. I think That is a screw on butane hose connection, a European standard They have adapters that go between the two standards The ultra tiny pocket size cooking burners use a hose to connect to a butane bottle that looks like the bottom of a Coleman lantern I suppose there is an adapter that goes from that to propane bottle

RE: Let's talk about Lifeline Batteries

20 percent of 675 is 135 amps which is C/5 I will need a bigger generator and larger charge/converter to do that

RE: POwer sharing with Honda EU2000i

No the point is there are no Correctly installed grid tie solar, that are 'Technically wrong' Correctly installed grid tie cannot back feed to the grid They do feed surplus to the grid while utility power is connected

RE: acceptance charging rate AGM batteries

Don c/5 on your bank, is 111 amps I don't think your in any danger of over charging Even if you got full solar and full output from the Magnum You would only exceed that by about 4 amps per battery 31 amps instead of 27 amps C/5 on my bank is 135, I could get close in capability if I hook up both Vedctors the 25 & 40 and the pd9270, and IF the batteries were at 50% instead of 80%

RE: POwer sharing with Honda EU2000i

NO YOU ARE WRONG Grid tie inverters will not turn on if grid power is off No grid power, the inverter disconnects from the solar The grid tie inverter is a mandated safety device A grid the system will not produce power and back feed and kill the linemen, during a power failure a grid tie house has no electricity, just like everybody else I'm not meaning to encourage this idea, but want to note that if backfeeding the utility power was illegal, there are millions of solar systems out there in violation.

RE: POwer sharing with Honda EU2000i

Simply put... It's illegal.. Against every electrical code NEC, state, and local municipal, And dangerous Also Any shore voltage so low that you can't start the A/C, will damage the compressor when you run it after disconnecting the generator We are all aware of campgrounds with low voltage that are able to start the a/c, then burned out running A/c units Voltage so low that you can't even start the a/c , is fool hardy to even run it, much less sync a generator to it Run the a/c from the Honda, or try using an auto transformer to boost voltage Switch Every thing you can to lp Fridge will not stay cold on low voltage power

RE: Woo Hoo..New AGM Batteries

yes..I;ll check out the DROK boosters i have a small one in my dash for voltage control on the instruments/gauges and another one as a 'chassis' battery maintainer, powered from the house solar wiring

Here is one I came across yesterday:-) http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f1/Dieselracer014/Mobile%20Uploads/E828EAE3-4504-42B9-AA9F-DAAFEB603EA7_zpsuuzs4hqn.jpg width=300 now that is ugly and i saw something truly UGLY today, but was driving and did not get a picture I think the OP is a remarkable job, excellent work, very well done

RE: Woo Hoo..New AGM Batteries

right now charging at 8.6amps, 1% is 6.75amps volts reading is 14.13v i need to connect the Vector 40amp to boost the voltage to 14.4 i'm considering a 'DC booster' project or maybe a megawatt project to do this more reliably than the the vector charger

RE: A Project Sitting On A Shelf? Unfinished?

RE: New 14.8V Progressive Dynanics Converters

i bought a new deck mount PD9270 in march don't think it does 14.8 i have never measured that 'at the batteries' i just went out to the electric bay and measured 14.32v at 26.94 amps at the wire terminals on the PD mine is Not the new 'C' model my power meter on the wall is reading 14.10v at the batteries charging at 12.1 amps, the other amps are loads, fans, pc, etc.. my inverters are right next to the PD, the batteries 8ft away on the other side of the RV. OEM wiring is 'One Aught' those few extra 'tenths of a volt' might be handy ? i'll just have to figure out another way like maybe one of those 900w 15amp DC boost converters

RE: Other propane ceramic heaters

Strange The one we have only use the butane cans Must be a new version BTW FYI The term ceramic is most often used with electric heaters And the buddies and little portable gas heaters are referred to as 'Blue Flame' heaters Yes they have ceramic cores, but almost nobody calls them a ceramic heater, not even mfg or retailer I think this is why some people suggested electric models
