RE: Firearms in RVs in California

I travel all over the US which is why I suggested purchasing the book in my first post. Here is a link and consider your RV a vehicle, which is what California will consider it: California Firearm laws I only travel inside California and occasionally Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. Those states are not as strict as California. Upthread someone suggested that when driving the vehicle laws are applicable but when camped the RV is treated as a domicile.

RE: Firearms in RVs in California

Arizona and Nevada are both pretty open with their gun laws and in most cases they allow weapon carry and recognize carry permits from other states. Like most states there are many locations where weapons are not allowed, such as schools, Federal buildings, bars, etc and in commercial nuclear & hydroelectric generating stations.The internet is your friend and a simple search will usually give you the answers. Just make sure that the answer you get about weapons is CURRENT. Of course I did a search first but I could find nothing specific to motorhomes in California. I figured there might be someone here who lives in California and carries firearms.

RE: Firearms in RVs in California

On a lighter note. My DW and I traveled to the Hoover dam for the tour. I moved my 9mm to the trunk of the car as we had to go through a check point, and I didn't want it to be within arms distance. Sure enough, they asked me if I had a weapon. I responded that I did, and it was in the trunk. They turned us away, and we had to store it at a gun range about 20 miles away before we could enter the Hoover dam area parking. My DW asked me why I just didn't tell the agents that I didn't have a weapon, to avoid the long drive back and forth for storage. I replied, " Honey, we have Texas plates on both ends of this auto. Do you really think they would have let us through without an inspection"? But, to the OP. I wouldn't go anywhere in our RV without a weapon. Especially CA. Happy Travels!! Skip I always carry a shotgun but I'm going to start carrying pistols.

RE: Firearms in RVs in California

on the road in California your firearm must be unloaded and in a locked container... unless you have a California CCW permit. In your campsite, you may treat your firearm as if in your own home. Ok thanks.

Firearms in RVs in California

Does anyone know what the law is for carrying firearms and your RV? Is it considered a vehicle or a domicile?

RE: Solar questions

Btw, what kind of screws did you use to afix the brackets to the panel frames?

I appreciate the advice. I will get this done before our trip later this month.

RE: Solar questions

Chris said extend the bracket from the roof vertically to the side on the panel. Insert a horizontal screw below the cells to secure the panel. Those brackets are tiny. The Z brackets are a bit less than 4" W and 1" D. Those were just an example. 4" wide L-brackets work great. You can find them at home depot. For some reason their search feature is not up so I can't send you the exact ones. The beauty is that you don't need to remove the panels to add more of these L-brackets. Good luck! Chris Yes I found 4" brackets on Amazon. I ordered them and barrel nuts. Thanks for the tip.

RE: Solar questions

Well I used 4 brackets with VHB tape and reading the more recent comments it seems less than ideal. Options are cabling the panels to a solid anchorage point like the roof AC frame. Prying the panels off and redoing them with 6 or 8 brackets. Or? I wouldnt take anything off now that there on, maybe just add a couple in stratigic locations to stiffen it up. if you have a diagram where you braced it, I could easily give you my opinion on where to add brackets. Steve SIMPLE! Get some L-Brackets similar to these but tall enough to get to your solar panel side framing: https://www.lowes.com/pd/ReliaBilt-RB-1-5-IN-BL-W-CORNER-BRACE-4-CT/5001634683 Then, if you want your panels to be more secure than they are now just add 1, 2, 4, etc to each panel (again with VHB tape) and the panels will be guaranteed to be held down better than they are now. I have 3 RVs and I am in the process of putting solar on the newest one (I've got solar on the other two already). I put 4 brackets bolted/screwed in (EPDM roof) as well as VHB tape. I felt good about them so I Dicor'ed everything. Then, my safety 1st brain told me, "Let's make them a little stronger" so I just added some L-brackets for bonus strength. The best part? You can add more brackets in less than 20 minutes. Good luck! Chris The problem is I have to remove the panels to do that. Ugh!

RE: Solar questions

I'm not planning on removing them but it's good to know how. How would you get the tape residue off the roof? dont use it in the first place haha.. seriously though the tape is not nessasary but if it makes you feel its more secure then what the heck. on my roof it wouldnt have done anything as I have a solid aluminium sheet roof that is hardly atatached to the wood underneith at all, and in some places there is no wood under it, so I hade to find studs to run screws into and such. Steve My roof is fiberglass so tape is the recommended method.

RE: Solar questions

I went up on the roof today to see how I could add brackets. The Z brackets I have require nuts and bolts on the bottom surface of the frame and there is almost no clearance to get to them. But frankly those panels are really on there! I pulled up on them pretty hard and they aren't budging. How would you remove them if you needed to? Painstakingly cut the VHB tape off the bracket with a razor blade?

Solar questions

I'm mounting three 210 watt Newpowa panels on my 30'Class A motorhome. I'm using Renogy Z brackets to mount them to my fiberglass roof. The panels are pre drilled to accept 8 of these brackets. Do you recommend 4 or 8 brackets per panel? Also I'm using the MPPT controller in my Redarc 40A DC to DC charger which has an input voltage of 9-32V. I need to run the panels in parallel to keep the voltage low enough but that means I need to use 6ga wire to run from the point of parallel conection. Do they make connectors that will fit 6ga wire? Or do I need to splice the cables? Thanks in advance.
