RE: Good Sam or KOA

My preference would be passport america, or freecampsites.net

RE: Feedback on 12V water heater element as solar diversion load

ewarnerusa, Go for it! I originally intended to use the battery bank to run the fridge for 12 hours before taking a trip. I never got around to doing so--and the controller did not have a diversion load terminal.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

750 miles of range in a tesla real life. 600 miles claimed. https://one.ai/batteries/gemini?fbclid=IwAR2bZknL9pr7Bmeo_53ENcu5j_r2iL2o2cREXM-EC5QbszMty5lYTd3BbpI

RE: Inverter and battery sizing to power my camper microwave

2oldman, Price would be much cheaper for SOK

RE: Inverter and battery sizing to power my camper microwave

If you get the 40 amp there is a pin that can be pulled to limit it to 20 amps.

RE: No 110 Volts to Hot Water Heater Element

Hi, I thought my element had failed. I bought a new one. After replacement, the new one started to work. I guess the relay had frozen "open" and the act of replacing the element "fixed" it.

RE: 8 Gauge Wire

One possible solution is a dc to DC charger. But likely an inverter is a better choice. It can be MSW and about 400 watts.

RE: Inverter and battery sizing to power my camper microwave

I can tell you that inrush on a 1000 watt psw inverter is high enough to blow a 30 amp fuse. And that is with no load. DAMHIK

RE: Verizon Grandfathered Unlimited Plan

It is interesting to measure speeds. The local company that I'm connected to via wifi has a download speed of 300 mbps. However, they limit upload to only 10. A swindle, I'd say.

RE: Inverter and battery sizing to power my camper microwave

LaneW, Consider using a dedicated female plug--one for the generator, one for the inverter. OR Use an inverter/charger that allows for load support.

RE: Inverter and battery sizing to power my camper microwave

Hi, Inverter loses are about 12% 1350 x 1.12 = 1512 watts / 12v = 126 amps = no problem running microwave Just choose a battery monitoring system that allows 100 amps to be drawn from the battery bank. Do wire the batteries in a balanced manner.

Thanks for the heads up free radical

RE: yet another door look bites the dust

Hi, As we get to -40 I do not want an electric lock of any kind.

RE: Verizon Grandfathered Unlimited Plan

I do have an unlimited plan from Bell Canada that covers me in North America for data. It isn't cheap.

RE: yet another door look bites the dust

Since you are in a class C, it doesn't matter but you should be able to unscrew and remove the lock from inside the RV. When mine broke, I had no problem finding a replacement at an RV parts store. I never saw an all steel model. Mine has plastic parts on the inside. Thanks for the reply. Except that the screen door covers one of the screws. What a 'smart' design.

yet another door look bites the dust

Hi, Does anyone have a source for a trimark all steel lock? It's a good thing I'm in a class C. Being locked in is not much fun.

RE: Toad Battery Charger

Geobiker, Look into dc to DC chargers. Mine is from Renogy https://www.renogy.com/12v-20a-dc-to-dc-on-board-battery-charger/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAw8OeBhCeARIsAGxWtUzaPZqVInymb-g7Moqo_LmTN-8OouwaIYnCfvpbD1hVVJPXIhFVIwgaAitWEALw_wcB

RE: Fuel tank leaks when we fill it

If it is diesel there is little chance of ignition. You could fill the tank until the first click off happens.
