RE: Single Rear Wheel vs Dually - Whats the Best for You

SRW for me. I would prefer to compromise with a smaller trailer than the wide truck. Now if there was a special model with a narrow axle to fit the dual without the flares that would be my ticket.

RE: Solar panels

How long is a rope? Otherwise most people with two batteries get on pretty good with 200 to 400 watts. More is always OK. If you are a real miser 100 watts might work.

RE: WFCO converter for lithium batteries

Get rid of the 55amp WFCO power center. POSPower center is fine. It is just the converter MBA that often fails to work as designed.

RE: WFCO converter for lithium batteries

Are newer WFCOs still junk? The one in my 2018 Coachmen seems to do fine. I leave it plugged in all summer and not only does it keep it charged, it has yet to boil the battery.Do you actually measure 14.4 volts charging when expected? Would love to see some positive reports on WFCO.

RE: WFCO converter for lithium batteries

WFCO lithium MBA manual So basically it just skips the float mode of 13.2 volts. I see no description on how long the 14.6 volts is held.

Might help to put 2,000 pounds payload in the bed of the truck.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Just curious does the semi have an air brake system to enable it to tow any trailer.Yes

I use Mobil 1 extended life oil and filters. Change on miles only, not the calendar. Works for me.

RE: Fuel problems

... then it is probably fuel. I assume you have inspected all the fuel lines. When I read the OP's post, my very first thought was "Bad Fuel".I have seen a carb filled with water and that does cause issues ;) Fairly rare these days with the amount of alcohol in the fuel. Seen bad right out of the box rebuilt carbs too. I would only get new if I had a vehicle with a carb (if available).

RE: Fuel problems

You need a pressure gauge to quantify the issue. Seems unlikely that it is the fuel pump itself. Is the bowl of the carb empty as it dies? Does the engine recover immediately to restart or you let off the throttle? Did you keep the old pump? If so post the number you need to cross. When did this RV last run well? Was the transfer to failure and shutting down immediate or gradual? Any other work done near the time of failure? Hard to get a feel for this old school stuff without a test drive. I am not convinced it is not an ignition problem. But if it just falls flat as you get in the throttle and then recovers and continues if you back off then it is probably fuel. I assume you have inspected all the fuel lines.

RE: No Warranty on your RV? Don't buy new?

If you know what you need and want for long term then new is fine assuming you are not stretched financially. First RV I would go preowned to buy something at a steep discount vs new. Good chance you may want to trade in a few years and would really take a hit on the trade in. I believe a proper inspection is more important than a warranty for a used unit.

RE: Roof: Not leaking, but 20 yrs old

I would inspect and caulk as needed with Dicor self leveling and not worry one wit. Are you planning to keep it another 20 years? Same as at home I wait for an actual leak then replace.

RE: All battery/electric bus fleet

Indianapolis just did this, and when weather got cold, they failed. Good luck! Edit: I just checked, the article is till out there. Click here. Another... Good luck! Theres that Chinese quality again Buy Canadian next time https://www.nationalobserver.com/2019/03/21/news/many-canadian-transit-agencies-are-missing-made-canada-electric-buses-says-newFailure seems a bit strong by what is written in the link.

RE: Recs for Solar Cut Off Switch?

What is the voltage? All parallel panels can be about any DC switch rated for the Isc total. Panels in series sending 50+ volts to the controller needs to be properly rated for the DC voltage.

RE: Voltage drop to 1200 watt inverter

Yes put your voltmeter right on the battery terminals, then the inverter input terminals, then back on the battery. Compare and post the results.

RE: Portable Generator Insurance?

I just insure the big stuff. 1,000 to 5,000 deductible would be no help on a used Honda that walked away.

RE: Why Tesla's are bad at towing!

Just get us out already. Let them fight their own battles. EVs help with US energy independence.

RE: All battery/electric bus fleet

Best way to gain knowledge is to get out there are do the impossible. Fear of failure and setbacks holds too many people down in life.Reply of the year.......on the taxpayers nickel.Good chance it will be a nickel saved for the public. Do you have comprehensive information otherwise? More fear factor and FUD.

RE: Why Tesla's are bad at towing!

Obama didn't put troops in Syria to protect oil. Trump flat out said he was protecting the oil. Obama put them there to protect people.And you are never skeptical on what is told to the public? Probably a bit of a mix. I voted for Obama because he promised we would end the war started during Bush. Obama failed and I voted against at second term. The withdrawal or escalation as the next election draws near will be a primary decision once again. IMO we need to just get out and stay out. For that matter 50% of troops at ALL bases could come home.

RE: All battery/electric bus fleet

Inductive is closer to 80% to 90% efficient depending on how well the target can line up. Yes conductive can be used. I have read a reverse pantograph has been successful. These would generally be deployed at one or two stops on route where the driver takes a break. Guessing close to 200+ kW for 15-20 minutes. Not to fully charge but to extend the range.
