RE: Solar and Charger into one?

The proper place for the existing converter is a dust bin--or recycling center.

RE: Make a "Smart" RV ?

The more complex the system the more likely to fail and may be much harder to diagnose. I am not anti hi tech. But I want to be able to go to an ordinary hardware store for replacement parts.

RE: Solar and Charger into one?

ajriding, The acceptance rate of charge on a lead acid battery drops to about 12.5 amps per 100 amp-hours of capacity at 85% of full. As the battery becomes more and more charged that number drops a heck of a lot. Increasing the charge voltage simply causes the battery to gas. It is possible to fully charge at 12.8 volts--but it would take about 176 hours.

RE: Who can help me pick out a 600 watt solar sytem?

Do you plan to Diy the solar?

RE: Dual Fuel Generators

I would stick to gasoline. The five portable tanks would not last for a week, unless you start and stop for every use. I think the budget is on the low side. If the well pump is 120 volts, my choice would be either Harbor freight 3000 watt electric start, or Champion 3400 watt with remote electric start.

RE: agm battery life

Midnightsadie, If you wish to save money consider getting reconditioned telecom jars from an Interstate battery store. They come with a 90 day warranty. Do measure them to see if they will fit.

RE: agm battery life

If they had been maintained by a solar charging system, I'd be interested. But back and forth? Nope, not for me.

RE: Solar and Charger into one?

Hi, I'd want to "see" the output on that old power supply. I'll bet you dollars to donuts it has lots of "ripple". I would certain NOT use it.

Mex did not say how he was.

RE: MIA - Mexico

Hi, I heard from Mex about a week ago.

RE: timbrens

Hi, I am pleased with the timbrens. But the air bags I had from the OEM were an incorrect size.

RE: Cellular Hotspot

Hi Phil, What you are seeing is that Mimo has multiple antennas. When you add a booster or single antenna range may increase but throughput may be slower.

RE: lino cracked after cold spell

Mine cracked some years ago at the entrance door. I'm contemplating using the new plastic plank flooring. There is a thick version and a thin one.

RE: What is the coldest temp you've started your Honda 2000 in?

Trackrig, I've started my Yamaha 3000 using the electric starter at -32 C (-25.6 F). It was not happy. I did have sea foam in the tank. The gas was three months old and it was cold soaked for at least a week. I did have to keep the choke pulled out a bit to keep it running for the first few moments. I'd suggest a "magnetic" block heater. I have one--but since it started--I did not resort to using it.

RE: Cellular Hotspot

Hi Dutch, How does one find out this information?

RE: Ford Starting /House Charging Question UPDATE Test

Hi BFL13, My 1987 Ford E-350 Diesel had only one solenoid but it did have a Diode for isolating and charging the "house" battery bank.

RE: melting plug

Why is this "new" plug better than the current standard for RV's? Does it have greater surface area on the female contacts?

RE: Ford Starting /House Charging Question UPDATE Test

BFL13, What chassis is it? Ford? GM? or other? What motor?

RE: Cellular Hotspot

Why does it look like a scam?
