RE: Lithium Ion Submarine Batteries

Yes it would seem like local defense could be easier with a multitude of these vs possibly no nuke powered due to cost. I wonder if they will plug in at the dock vs burn diesel to charge. Can only be better than flooded lead acid.

RE: Charging battery with Honda 2000

Using the 12v battery cord or are you plugging in the main RV cord to the generator? 12v needs eco off 120v eco does not matter If you have a WFCO converter plugging in will be a trickle charge either way.

RE: Mind the Batteries

Why not just plug in the RV and use the on board charging system? If that does not charge the chassis battery you can get him a Trik-L-Start combiner. https://www.lslproducts.net/TLSPage.html Otherwise you want the 12v minder. Probably one for each battery (house + chassis).

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

I am still waiting for a tenant request for a charging station. They all know I drive an EV... since 2011.

RE: AC and DC voltmeter installation using a 3d printed bezel

I may need to get one of these printers sometime

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

What happened to the electric semis? Are they going to be the new norm and/ or RV?Thread is still active but the Tesla version is 18 months out. Unless it is delayed again.

RE: Is a converter upgrade necessary anymore?

With my two new 6v batteries drained down to 11.2 volts, the charger didn’t go above 13.5v. Time for a converter - is the PD4655 still the one to buy or is there something new that I don’t know about? I will probably order from bestconverter.com again unless I find a deal somewhere.PD is among the best for off-grid camping. Consider the PD9260-14.8 if you do a lot of charging with the generator. The PD4655 MBA is probably the most direct replacement for the WFCO.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Mind you, she also has 4 kids that go to school for free, I have no children, but I pay more than 10 times the school taxes she does........You are part of a community that benefits from educated children. Sometimes we all need to just pitch in.

RE: AC and DC voltmeter installation using a 3d printed bezel

Very nice. What is the price of 'ink' to make a panel like this?

RE: What can I do with/expect from a generator?

Camping in sub-freezing temperatures presents many challenges. You will need to review your charging and battery system. You will need to review both your fresh and waste water systems. Also an absorption fridge may have poor performance as temps continue to drop. A 3000 watt generator will keep your battery charged and run the microwave when needed. Fridge and water heat will need to be on propane. You may need to run the generator 3 to 12+ hours a day depending on other systems and conditions.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Free updates, handy, losing your car for a day to reboot it? Not so handy.OK and without the OTA updates you get to spend the day at the dealer EVERY SINGLE TIME. I will take my chances. Tesla (and most EVs) are really about avoiding the dealer. Just drive.

RE: Flowjet Waste Pump Blessing or Curse...?

Criticism always seems to come from those who've not owned one or have never used one. :SI am not the only one. Primary reason to post was to provide a link to the comparison. Best to go in with your eyes open. Not here to bag on macerators. If you need one make the best of it. Have a great day.

RE: Flowjet Waste Pump Blessing or Curse...?

https://www.rvweb.net/best-rv-macerator-pumps-reviewed/ I don't have one as the need has not presented for me. Seems like the biggest complaint is longevity and overheating. I recommend connecting with oversize 12v cable to minimize voltage drop. Too bad these portable macerators are not 120vac powered. That is unless you want to go $600. https://www.hodgesmarine.com/Jabsco-Macerator-Pump-115v-p/jab18690

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

I say let income taxes pay for the roads. Petrol tax should be used to clean the environment.

RE: AC 20amp breaker trips mid day

107 is the low side of normal. A voltage booster such as Hughes Autoformer might help. Really need to check the specs on the 15.1 amps as it may indicate your compressor is failing.

I really like the mini split idea.

RE: Terrible factory splices in brake wiring

I have a preference to crimp over solder. Either way it can't be worse than what you found.

RE: mild rant, contractors and repair folks

Correct and this is why contractors don't waste their time even trying to appease/satisfy some customers. There are good and bad contractors and there are reasonable and unreasonable customers.That about sums it up right there. Just as a customer never really knows how the work will turn out... the contractor never knows what they are stepping into. Walk a mile in the contractors boots before you are too hard on them.
