RE: Costco battery?

A group 27. Marine/RV Group 27 Sam's clubs do not exist here. As I stated before C-O-S-T-C-O ITS AN EXAMPLE OF A GROUP 27 BATTERY RV MARINE. MY GOD this is not all that difficult. Probably the most used size unless your RV or dealer was cheap cheap cheap then you got a 24.

RE: waste powering a generator!

Gives a whole new meaning to "piss on it".

RE: Watts Help Needed.

You also have to carry the load of the RV itself which can be an amp or so. My 2000 watt xantrax idles at .5 amp. I also don't think inverting to the coffee maker on one battery is good.

RE: Original Lino floor split

I used peel and stick tile because we wanted a stone look vs wood planks. I removed the carpet and linoleum. I then used a latex primer on the OSB floor to seal the wood. Tile doesn't like to stick to a porous wood surface vs something with a sealed more gloss like surface. https://i.imgur.com/ohvzV7Yl.jpg I had a few places with little triangle cuts etc that didn't stick well but used a little goop to glue them down. My slide did scratch a couple tiles but all I have to do is peel them up and replace with some spares I kept on hand

RE: Hauling a motorcycle behind a 5er.

Going over entrances and driveways may be a rough ride. $20K motorcycle, $150 Gizmo?

X2 on lifting. The steps may be too tall and the stabilizers too short. Welcome to the club

RE: Do extra batteries need ventilation?

You can place the batteries farther away but use large gauge cable. Balance the connections. It may seem like a waste of wire but it will even up discharge/charging.

RE: Craggy Wash B LM near Lake Havasu City AZ

Caysea Check out the Slabs sometime. That guy will look like a punk afterwards. Don't stay at the Slabs and don't eat the veggies grown in human waster at East Jesus. Lol. Just visit and get out before dark.

RE: Craggy Wash B LM near Lake Havasu City AZ

Iirc I stayed at one north of there last fall called lone tree . It's not huge but I was able to double tow down the hill on the left and circle around down there. With craggy being closer to town it may have more people that are called the mobile homeless. Not all that go there are of course but often times closer to towns has the worst of them. If you are broke then staying close to necessities is a must.

RE: Downsizing to smaller rig, battery capacity

I run 2 CPAPs with the built in humidifiers off of 2 6V batteries and will run the heat as needed, generally it doesn't get below 40 here most times. Are you counting AH down? What's your morning voltage? How are you recharging. Two 6's would hold up better than two group.

RE: WFCO converter causing generator to rev up and down

Thanks for the info., you folks are great. Anyone want to buy a boat anchor? ?? Joking aside we love to help people out. Wfco often times won't go to 14.4 unless the battery is very low or they don't hold that voltage as long as needed. If you are sitting on a cord after traveling 13.6 will bring the battery back up but it takes a good deal of time. People often times just move on and put the money into a PD or whatever. When running on a generator it's all about cutting run time so 14.4 is mandatory and many choose to buy a unit that does 14.8. For Trojan wet cells they suggest 14.8 daily charges, so people often like buying good quality Trojans but don't realize what Trojan suggests.

RE: WFCO converter causing generator to rev up and down

How many wfco's does it take to make a boat anchor? A LOT :)

RE: Low overpasses, etc.

Truckers Atlas never fails. Yes, GPS is great but it can also mess you up. It's done a few horrible things to me. I actually use my phone/google maps most of the time. I double tow so mistakes are out of the question. I pre plan by looking at Earth/street view and reading reviews. Even some places like Walmart can be a problem because they may have set them up with a tight small island like pattern. They are not intended for large vehicles.

RE: Downsizing to smaller rig, battery capacity

If you add in what the rig is using for the fridge etc you will most likely be pulling 13 amps. Mulitply that by say 10 hours equals 130 AH down. You need more like three group 27 or four GC2 6 volts. You also need to consider your draw between no sun and bedtime if on solar. If topping off 100% on generator at bedtime then go back to about 130 ah draw down. As mentioned, if you are drawing them down far it takes a considerable amount of time to completely charge so you go into the next night full. If not they will start dropping more and more. As you do this check the specific gravity at times to be sure you aren't walking them down by not fully charging. You don't need to dip them constantly, you just need to dip enough to be sure your energy management program is working.
