RE: Lithium-ion and solar panel life cycles?

I did a quick look on Amazon, There it seems prices are more like 1/2 of Lithium not 1/3 Still that is a big savings

RE: Water, water....not everywhere?

That $400 Dome is not omni directional It seeks finds and records which stations are coming from what direction And then you choose what you want to watch When you change locations you do a New antenna search before doing a channel search on the TV

RE: Running a residential fridge on 12 volt power?

Boy oh boy Replies all over the place All he wants to do is keep the fridge cool during one day of work, so he can leave after work and go directly to the campground, Answer is usually Yes One pair of deep cycle batteries can handle the load for the day, plug in at home overnight, start the day with a cold fridge and fully charged batteries, if possible park the RV So the afternoon soon is Not shining on the wall behind the fridge

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

a lot of talk and a lot of opinions along with the facts the simple truth is : "there is no perfectly 'electrically' balanced RV" if an RV has (3) A/Cs then one leg has (2) of them even if it has only (2) A/C's, one on each leg they will never be pulling exactly the same amount of power on each leg the converter/charger will be on adding to one leg, other appliances will be used or cycled, so yes its possible to trip the 50amp breaker IF load management is NOT engaged, manually by human brain or automatically by the RV systems iirc one member posted here about re-distributing his circuit breaker loads because it came from the factory with the most used items all on the same leg somebody at the factory blew it, not properly spreading the load, when they installed the breakers

RE: How to increase water flow AFTER the filters?

how can filters be parallel ? don't they have to be in series sediment > micron > charcoal taste filter in parallel sediment would clog the other two and sulfur taste in the water is not removed by a sediment filter the water has to go thru each stage sequentially each stage is going to add some restriction to flow rate

RE: inverter location

Tommy i put my inverter in the side compartment by the entry door right under the converter i replaced i also put a 4D 130# AGM battery there from the inverter i ran 10ga outside weather proof round extension cord, same stuff used in RV shore cords thru the compartment wall and along the frame back to the bay (passenger side) where the shore cord is and installed a 30amp female on the end of that cord, i drilled a hole thru the step well {same area as the steps magnetic switch}(becareful of the wires in the bay) for the inverter remote cable, and mounted the remote on the end of the counter next to the door, right there above the other switches for the step and lights for fridge only, you can run the 120vac wiring right thru the bay and up into the fridge compartment the GC's arent enough battery except for travel and the wire from the converter to the front is on the small side although it might be big enough do the job without the big 4D i have pulled 12 amps from only the (2) "OLD' GCs up front running fans , TV, PC, etc.. but those don't have the startup surge like the fridge compressor the fridge may only need 100watts running But 900watts momentary compressor surge startup maybe add a microAir for starting the fridge (BTW i replaced all 3 batteries just 3 weeks ago} i would not install and inverter behind the grill in the weather how about under the copilot seat, or the storage compartment above the LP tank my bounder is almost identical to yours funny thing, i have the optional larger side*side fridge and NO sliding pantry and if i'm level my ice dream is rock hard i did the 120v fridge in the Safari DP, my previous RV installed a Triplite 1200w powerverter a real beast weighting 22# , its perfect for running a fridge

RE: Class C

My coffee carafe travels on the floor My coffee maker travels on a dinette bench, boxed in by other things While a non slip mat, might keep some things from moving, Things like coffee pots, glassware etc Tend to go flying, on sudden stops or maneuvers

RE: How to increase water flow AFTER the filters?

You said 3 part system Each part is going to add restriction to the flow of water If I couldn't resolve the issue I would use the filter system with a fill hose and Fill my tank, and use my water pump It might not be ideal, but it eliminates the issue of the sulfur odor, which is why you bought that system
