RE: Class b generator needed

My 1997 Xplorer 230XL has a spot prewired and insulated for a genny. I use that for much needed storage. I do bring a Honda 2000 for the few times I need a genny. I have a closed bin for carrying it in the van and then set it all outside. Since I do not need a genny much the space is more valuable.

RE: Boondocking Water Question

I turn the water heater on for 18 minutes, which is what works to get the water just the right temp to use without the cold on. So I just turn the hot water handle on and off. I do not leave the water heater on.

RE: Question about solar and my LiFePo4 batteries

It is the controller connection. The last time I had it out I wiggled the wires going in and the amps jumped way up to normal then back down.

RE: Question about solar and my LiFePo4 batteries

I think the problem is in the hookups to the Solar 30 controller. I may not have the wires in correctly. I found one wire not in properly. It is weird how to use those screws.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

The hope is the booster would induce antibodies. Perhaps it won't, but it is worth a try when they come out. I do not think it is the same as the first 2 shots. They cannot test for the T cell immunity. The childhood vaccines are different than the RNMA (?) covid vaccines. I asked if those would not take and they said they would.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

I have multiple myeloma, in remission after chemo and a stem cell transplant (SCT) a year ago. I had pfizer's vaccine in Jan & Feb. My transplant doc had me join a clinical trial for SCT patients response to the covid vaccine. The blood test showed I had a nonreactive result, no antibodies. They said I may have T-cell immunity but they do not test that. So I have been told to wear a mask, socially distance, avoid crowds and isolate as much as possible. I cannot go into Michigan Stadium for football games, bummer as I own a house 1 block from the 50. The doc told me to get a booster ASAP. So I am hoping the US follows Israel's lead in promoting boosters for the immune compromised like me. They have started revaccinating me for all the vaccines I had which were wiped out by the SCT. I got 7 last month and will keep getting more for another year.

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

With my weakened immune system and no antibodies after being vaccinated my Doc told me not to go into Michigan stadium for the games! I have been to 311 games there. I own a house 1 block from the 50 yard line and park cars on the lawn. The house I rent out. I have multiple myeloma and had a stem cell transplant a year ago which wiped out my immune system. I wonder if these crowds with no masks and stronger variants (Delta) will become super spreader events. Sure hope not.

RE: On/Off switch on dash

I have a switch which allows the engine to start off the house batteries.

RE: Question about solar and my LiFePo4 batteries

I washed the panels and tested the LSC amps again, and got 6.3 amps, so the panels are good. I just bought another 60 watt panel and it's lsc is 3.3 amps. I am going to rig these up to use together with the one controller. It will be portable and collapsible.

RE: why i call Li fussy

Here's a thread on LI heater installs. I posted mine on there and it works well and I am pleased with it. Mine starts at the bottom of page 4. https://diysolarforum.com/threads/lifepo4-battery-warmer-install.14485/

RE: Question about solar and my LiFePo4 batteries

120 watts divided by 12 volts is 10 amps you hit six (60%) and that's after factoring in losses in the wire and the controller. I was always told figure half.. (50%) is good. It is rated at 6.67 amps. The VOC tested at 20 volts plus, it is rated at 21.6 volts.

RE: Question about solar and my LiFePo4 batteries

Maybe one of the panels is dying - 120W solar suitcase consists of 2*60W in parallel. Or there is a poor connection somewhere. Measure the current inline for either panel, directly on the panel lead, and then again on the output lead of the entire 120W array - before the controller. Easier to measure with clamp-on DC meter but with some care possible to do with a regular meter. I am thinking of taking apart the junction boxes, then checking each panel separately. But the voltage did check out as rated.

RE: Question about solar and my LiFePo4 batteries

I just hooked up my panels to a lead acid battery which had 12.4 volts. I am only getting 1.8 amps at 1 pm on a pretty bright day. I checked the Solar 30 controller setting and the PV off is set for 14.8 volts.

RE: shades ideas to keep the sun off Camper?

I've been looking at this for a time. There are many on youtube. Here's one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ulGTlmcffI Here's some other threads: https://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/f2/newbie-using-a-shade-sail-to-protect-rv-from-the-sun-147372.html Here's a parts supplier: https://www.a1tarps.com/low-peak-fittings.html

RE: Question about solar and my LiFePo4 batteries

Thanks all for the replies. The next time I get it out I will check the settings. BFL, in June I think the sun is more directly overhead here in Michigan than in FLA.

RE: Question about solar and my LiFePo4 batteries

That's kind of what I thought regarding the sky. There were no clouds but some sort of high thin haze.
