RE: help with electrical question

Sure. The neighbor's friend just plugs into an outlet on your RV.

RE: Storing with gas in tank, for a year or more?

Another vote for seafoam here. Have never found premium gas to be any more stable than regular. Whether diluted in a gallon of gas or not, the seafoam will mix through diffusion in a day or 2. After a couple days idle the van or take a short drive.

RE: Replace PEX tubes with flexible hose?

I once tried vinyl tubing and hose clamp as a temporary fix when a PEX collar failed. The grooves on the PEX fitting were not deep enough to hold the tube with a hose clamp once pump pressure was applied. The only thing that worked was to replace with a PEX crimp ring. If you choose to use the shark bite fittings, remember that they only clamp to tubing and not PEX fittings. So cut the tubing as far enough away from the PEX fitting to allow installation of the sharkbite. Curious why not replace with pex tubing and collars?

RE: Traveling with a Fish

A bubbler isn't required, if you get a betta fish. They've adapted simple lungs and will gulp air from the surface of the water. It will travel just fine in a plastic bag that is half filled with air. Dealers send fish all over the world in this manner. If you get the fish from a mom and pop pet store, I'm sure they'll show you how to close the bag there is plenty of air without using a compressor or breathing into it. While you're there, they would probably give you a few bags and rubber bands if you ask. Then, travel with the bag in the bathroom sink so it doesn't roll around. Refresh the air in the bag when you stop for gas or to eat.

RE: 2 pin panel-mount electrical socket and plug?

Norther Tool lists the same sprayer that has a pump with an 8 amp draw. Anderson is good. Might be able to get away with SAE solar connectors such as: https://smile.amazon.com/CERRXIAN-Weatherproof-Sidewall-Disconnect-Harness/dp/B07TB7XH2H/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=sae+flush+mount&qid=1586789654&s=lawn-garden&sr=1-4

RE: turn on camera for video conferencing

When installing zoom last week, the speaker and camera had to be authorized for zoom usage. On the left most screen, (hands free screen) we had to select 'use device audio'. Once selected, then zoom asked for access to the microphone and camera.

RE: Question about having camper setup in near freezing temps.

If the drain is connected, leave the hose connected, leave the cold water trickling in a sink, and the gray water drain open letting the water trickle until morning.

RE: OTR Indoor Antenna

The necessary size of the antenna is directly related to the distance of the signal. Active amplification (separate 120V plug for power) always trumps passive amplification.

RE: How many amps does my inverter provide

Since the surge of the 600W model is 1200W, a 7Amp inline fuse to protect the 18 ga. wire is a hands off approach to not overloading the wire.

RE: Need batterys.

At 50% state of discharge, the 6V will have provided 50% more Ah (32 Ah more) than the 12v. If charge time matters that much and you don't need the extra capacity why consider the 6V in the first place? Where I camp, that energy is needed to run the furnace all night at a reasonable temperature. It is also nice not having to worry and monitor to be sure of not going past a 50% state of discharge. I like my 6es.

RE: Generator - A/C issue

When the generator is first started, the converter will be trying to charge the batteries. That can be a significant load in addition to the A/C. When turning things off, that should also include the breaker to the converter.

RE: Quality Question about Small Inverters

One other consideration is the power the inverter will consume to do its job. Some are more efficient at doing their job than others.

RE: 12v house battery replacement

If full timing connected to electric, go with an affordable sealed 12 V marine/rv battery. If not connected and there is room, go with 2 ea. 6V Gc2 batteries in series as long as they'll fit. Maintenance free (agm) are about $300 per battery. If OK adding distilled water once a month, floaded cell 6v batteries are about $100 each. If there isn't room, go with the biggest and baddest 12 v rv/marine that can be afforded. If there is a kidney distributer near by, lithiums are Cadillac but have limiting environmental conditions. That is as long as you still have a spare kidney.

RE: Route from NY to NM

Cannot help with routes. New Mexico has much to see. Not knowing available time wrt competition, consider Sandia tram, Sante fe, gran quivera, Carlsbad caverns, blue hole, Sandia cave, Carlito springs if open, and more hiking trails than you can imagine.

RE: Generator at High Altitude

Jets are cheap. Get one to have, but try the generator first before making the change. A little extra fuel smell in the exhaust may be the only difference.

RE: Toilet clog

I'm with the valve not opening when you pull the cable crowd. If you post the model of 5th wheel, someone may be able to point you to the valve location for a visual inspection.

RE: Taping down a solar panel on a PAINTED fiberglass roof?

Why not leave the panel on the ground. Parts to make you own system are now readily available online. You have a source for the panel. The rest can be spec'd by folks on here. It also gives the freedom to place the panel where the shade is not?
