RE: Want to add solar battery charger for storage use

Save your money, charge the batteries fully and disconnect the ground battery cable. Batteries will not lose their charge.

RE: Power gear hyd levelers low power

Bearings on the leveling motor go bad. If your reservoir and motor are behind the front grill water can get to the motor bearings. Mine started squealing, replaced the motor.

RE: Modified Sine wave inverter for seldom used microwave

Many still use a modified sine wave inverter, no problem there. Just know the microwave will be producing less heat.

RE: Battery charge

Your charger should supply a float voltage of around 13.2 -13.4 volts for a lead acid battery. If that 12.5 voltage was measured with the charger on and the battery connected the float voltage is to low from your charger.

RE: honeywell thermostat

You will need two thermostats. Wire the heat controls to just one.

RE: Dash AC

The F53 chassis has no vacuum system. the chassis makers have to add one to operate the heating/ac dash vent system. This system consists of a small 12v vacuum pump and a small vacuum tank and associated vacuum hoses that go to the dash controls. If there is no vacuum the default vent path is through the defrosters. Check all these vacuum lines around the pump and tank, usually under the hood in front.

Just disconnect the batteries, no need for shore power. Disconnect by removing the ground cable.

RE: Is A New 2018 Still New?

Lead acid batteries that have sit for a long time fully discharged might able to be charged up again but they will never have full capacity or be fully charged. Make sure they didn't come from the floods in south Texas.

The bounder may have had two 6v batteries and a 12 volt chassis battery. 6v will be series wired to the 12v house system.

RE: Xantrex Freedom 458 issues

Which remote controller do you have? Basic controller setup you can set amp hours of your battery bank, power share and equalize. I have a Link 1000 controller which can do much more than this but it is out of production, same thing for the Link 2000. May just need a new basic controller, around $150

RE: Why do my emails disappear?

Most phones have an email setting similar to ' days of email to sync'. This means these are the only emails brought to your phone. They are still online, just not brought to the phone, change the sync time if you wish. Not sure about iphones but for Microsoft accounts, if you delete them using the phone they are deleted online. MS accounts, if they are past the sync days go to https://outlook.live.com/mail to see old emails.

RE: wiring a 30 Amp Power Outlet 30A Circuit Breaker {{UPDATE}}

With the garage being 100 feet away you should be using wire greater than the normal 10 gauge for 30 amps. The wire will probably be in conduit so go to a 8 or 6 gauge wire run from the garage. This is not considering the length of wire from your new box to the RV. Voltage drop 100 feet, 10 AGW wire at 20 amp load is 4.1 volts 100 feet, 10 AGW wire at 30 amp load is 6.1 volts 100 feet, 8 AGW wire at 20 amp load is 2.6 volts 100 feet, 6 AGW wire at 20 amp load is 1.6 volts Use a local ground pole. wiring it up, select 30 amp service on the left. http://www.myrv.us/electric/
