RE: Tire chains needed?

Entire US coast has chain laws to carry and use when specified. Otherwise you can be cited and/or turned back.

RE: Insulating exposed tanks

I have fully exposed tanks. I added UltraHeat brand tank heaters. (120v) Been fine down below zero. I have no added insulation. Might be over thinking it for just a weekend. Don't forget the drain pipes and valves. Worst case you will need to dump after it thaws a bit after you get off the hill.

RE: Tire chains needed?

I recommend the diamond style. Cables are good too just to carry something lightweight. https://www.tirechain.com/Truck-Tire-Chains.HTM

RE: Electric Pickup?

This kinda went off the railsWould that be electric rails? Watched Top Gear tonight. They had a Nissan Leaf Peugeot electric car. They ran out of range in a town that did not have a recharge station. They ended up pushing the car to a university for a 13 hour charge trying to make it to a beach town. They were not favorable to electric cars.If they wanted to go to the beach they would have easily made it. Instead they feel they get higher ratings to intentionally make the vehicle fail. For some reason people actually buy into this fakery. Same old rerun from TG :R TG has been doing this charade since the first test of the original Tesla Roadster where the vehicle was intentionally sabotaged. Broder from the NY Times is a bit famous for the same non-sense.

RE: Microwaves on inverters.

The batteries are only half of the equation. What do you do so you can run the coffee maker and microwave the next day? And what about the times when the sun doesn't shine for 4 days? And what is the cost of that side of the equation? Just buy the generator and be done.I have a 700 watt Ryobi propane generator for circumstances of several days of no sun or some other near fatal situation. Only puts 40 amps into the battery, not going to run the MW direct. Inverter does run silent during quiet hours.

RE: Class A Fulltimer freeze concerns

How cold is cold? While in use most any RV is good to about 25. If yours is well made as said above you are probably fine to at least 20 and maybe lower.

RE: Inverter use.

Recommended brand?I have and recommend GoPower sine wave inverters. If spending money today I would use this transfer switch to wire it in to the branch circuit: https://www.donrowe.com/KISAE-TS15A-Automatic-Transfer-Switch-p/ts15a.htm 20a available too if needed.

RE: Propane Tank Gauge,recomendations please

Obviously not everyone thinks they are a PITN if there are lines of them being refilled - neither the customers who use them or the business that fills them.Was charged the same minimum as a 20# fill for each of the small cylinders. My 30# was just charged the straight gallon rate. Actions are motivated by local costs. You might do the same if your local charged as such. Be glad they do not.

RE: Propane Tank Gauge,recomendations please

I was merely stating that there are places that fill tanks that way. .I believe it's westernrvparkowner who tells the story of crawling under a Class A to "top off" the propane and it takes 75¢ worth. So I think he charges a minimum.Yes and I have seen a line of 2 or 5 lb cylinders getting filled. PITN compared to filling a single 30 lb. A certain amount of propane is vented off too for each connection.

RE: Microwaves on inverters.

I suck at math, and I’m no electrician, but real world experience is that I can microwave on my inverter but it takes a lot longer than normal.Is that a sine wave inverter? Very common for a MSW to cook slower as the peak wave voltage underdrives the megatron.

RE: Signing a power of attorney for bank when selling your RV

With a written bill of sale signed by buyer and seller of how the process will be completed I would move forward with all the finance requests. Bill of sale would state the RV is to stay with seller until check delivered. Sale 'as is, where is, no warranty'. Max 21 days to complete.

RE: How much SOLAR?

After you cart around panels for a year you may rethink putting them on the roof.And depending on results the OP will know if 200 is enough or need to cram 600+ up there. Best energy audit is one of actual usage vs collection.

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

Take it down to the hardware store and match it up. Fairly simple.

RE: Propane Tank Gauge,recomendations please

Around here also, many places charge by the fill, not the amount. Even our propane company charges a straight rate to fill a 20 or 30 pound tank. Amount is irrelevant.I'd find another propane place. I've =never= seen that and, if I did, I'd just say, "not interested", and go elsewhere. F'n ripoff!Yes. This is why we wait until a cylinder is empty. On the road or at home we wait until it is empty.

RE: Microwaves on inverters.

4x GC2 and 400 watts solar to go with that inverter will work fine. Lithium is great but not necessary. If you go lithium make sure the parallel capacity is 200+ amps.

RE: How much SOLAR?

200 will still go a long way to minimize generator run time. Maybe run the gen a bit in the morning to make coffee and then let the solar work the rest of the day. We look forward to a solar report.

RE: Electric Pickup?

Probably only 20 to 35 when towing and limited range as it would apply to the members of RV.net The real market is the people that do not tow long distance or haul a TC. So reality RV.net is the minority so it is OK to pass when they do not fit your needs.

RE: battery charging

Will not hurt to run overnight on battery power once every 30 to 90 days. IMO a few cycles now and then is fine and proves what is working.
