RE: How many of you own an EV?

I don’t know why oil corporation’s are standing by and not perfecting hydrogen fuel refining and distribution. Every automobile manufacturer has hydrogen powered vehicles ready to go to market at considerably lower cost and pollution free. Only if they are fuel cell based.

RE: Inverter installation question.

Heat kills. The fans may help. Put them on a thermostat?

RE: Space Storms Destroy Elon Musk's Starlink Satellites

I pay $100/month for Bell internet. 25mbps down 5 mbps up I get up to 76 m/s down and about 7 up on my Sask tel account. On Bell it seems to depend on time of day. Tonight at 7:30 pm, I'm getting 15 down, and 27 up. Later this evening the down will be faster as folks head for bed.

RE: House battery size

Curious as to what size and type batteries class A owners use for house batteries. Our manual does not mention or explain how to calculate requirements. Doug This website has some suggestions on how to make that decision: https://freecampsites.net/adding-solar-part-four/

RE: How many of you own an EV?

I don't have grandchildren. But I'd like for the children of 2035 to have cleaner air that I do. I put my money where my mouth is and spent 17,000.00 to reduce my electrical use.

RE: Michelin vs Toyo tires

Hi, My tire dealer recommended Toyo. I've been using them since 2011

RE: Rock Collectors

The only down side is they are fairly noisy.

RE: Two blow outs in one day

Hi Gary, Sorry to hear of your problems I've had zero problems with my Toyo tires. I wanted more clearance and so replaced the rims and went to a taller tire with more weight capacity. The OEM Michelin tires were overloaded on the drivers rear. I got about 1.5 inches more ground clearance. The worst thing for tires is to sit unused. It is a big consideration now that I'm no longer full time.

RE: CC Magna Build (solar, res fridge, induction cooktop, etc)

Do you mind sharing the total cost of the solar?

RE: We got a new RV

swimmer, Usually on the supply side of the water pump. For winterizing in Saskatchewan: 1. drain all tanks including hot water and switch on the bypass 2. blow the lines with an air compressor (the toilet rinse too) 3. install pink antifreeze (safe to drink but tastes really bad) 4. blow the lines again and save the anti freeze 5. treat the drains with pink antifreeze. If you are not sure--then get the local RV dealer to do it for you--money well spent!

RE: Adding electric heat element to gas water heater

There is one kit that includes a magnesium rod to protect the aluminium.

RE: Routing/trip planning app ???

The best two ever are gone. . Both took some learning to make them fully capable, but they were both capable of planning to a lever that nothing current is even near. Matt What were they? I used streets and trips for multiple years.

RE: CARB smog testing motorhomes Every 4months by 2024

Plated BVWR is 14000.

RE: CARB smog testing motorhomes Every 4months by 2024

It only affects motorhomes that have a GVWR of over 14,000lbs. Which is 100% of class A's, and every class C over @ 24'. Gee whiz, I'll have to cut 4 feet 5 inches off my class c which fully loaded comes in at 13,750 lbs. I had at that time 7 group 29 batteries. All tanks were full--and the unit was ordered with two fresh water tanks.

RE: Cover for camper while in storage? Yes/no?

waste of money--unless it is a pole barn or better.

RE: Norcold on Inverter

My backyard experiment suggested 20 minutes on followed by 40 minutes off. I'm still on the oem alternator.

RE: Low power?

Consider an auto former at the RV end of the cords. Roll your own extension cord with thicker wire. Don't exceed 24 amps of demand.
