Solar related posts should be placed in Tech Issues. Avoid doing so in Technology Corner which will get moved to this forum. Thanks.


Maybe having two sub-forums with such similar names is part of the problem? I don't necessarily have a better naming schema off the top of my head, but I can see how it would be confusing for some.

Try this in Google. “Site[emoticon]V.net solar (battery etc)” and it will give you a list of every “solar, battery etc.” title in RV.net. Substitute full URL for confused face.

Use for any site search.

The confused smily makes me giggle.

Here's a link to the search that joshuajim suggested:

Hey Perry - I don't see any other "Yes" votes yet. That doesn't mean it's a "no", but I don't see enough support for the idea yet.

Did you check out Class A and browse through the categories yet? What did you think? Did the format make sense for you? Do you think the benefit is worth the extra work?

I'm eager to hear your feedback.

Solar, generator and BATTERY subforum.
Where do we post when it involves all three?

I meant a forum that covers all three. They are very inter-related and go together.

I like the idea of a Solar/Battery/Generator sub-forum. This could easily be created using 3 sub-forums:
All
General Topics
Solar/Battery/Generator/Electrical

I added electrical to cover 12V and 120V, surge protectors, converters, inverters

Other topics could be separated into sub-forums as needed.

Just out of curiosity... is there a way to get that search to return something other than the 'print' version of the site pages?

I, for one, have never found the sub-categories useful in any of the forums that have them. The Travel Trailer forum requires a category when posting, so I have to select one (always General Q&A), but I have never utilized the categories when reading. When reading, I don't want to limit myself to only Vintage, or only Small TT, or any other single category.

The technology and Tech forums are just fine. There is enough forums already so I vote NO for more forums or sub forums. Sorry about that and I know how to do proper quick search of the forums.

I also view other RV forums such as IRV2 for even more great information. Cheers

only because the other mods posts made it seam like it was such a extream effort to do that it was a non started from the get go. I would love to see solar and battery topics have there own section. I wouldnt even make it a subform of the tech, I would just add it as another forum under the resorses tab.
