RE: Brake buddy compressor power draw

There’s a separate adapter in the trunk (god knows why), it’s wired directly to the battery (also in trunk) and it does the same thing from there. BB got back to me saying it’s normally 7-9 amps but older units can spike up to 13-14. I think the load is just too much for the tiny U1R battery. I either need to replace the BB, draw power from the RV hitch plug or see if I can squeeze a higher capacity battery into the trunk.

Brake buddy compressor power draw

Hi, How much power should a brake buddy classic draw during the compressor cycle? With the engine running on the toad and the alternator putting out 14.1v the compressor cycle drops it down to 11v. Without the engine running the compressor takes it below the 9.5v shut off so it’s not usable. It’s a Miata with a fairly small (newish) battery but it’s hard to fathom the BB compressor taking more than the car starter. Tia

RE: Garmin 780 RV “sharp curves”

The old "garbage in garbage out". Not sure I entirely buy that theory. Maybe for clearances etc. but they literally have the gps coordinates of the road in front of me and know my direction of travel. A little Pythagorean math on the fly would work out the angle required for say the next 750yds.

Garmin 780 RV “sharp curves”

Any way to increase the threshold of what Garmin considers “sharp”? The gentlest bend generates a warning so as a true hazard alert it’s useless. Also I’ve disabled it in the driver alerts settings but it’s still displayed. Unit has the latest software. Thanks
