RE: Solar power battery novice question

Your thinking is correct. The two 12v batteries wired in parallel act as one battery and are both being charged via the solar panels. The readout is displaying the voltage of the two batteries is if it were one battery.

RE: Battery

Trojan says to avoid freezing temps. If you cant avoid freezing temps keep them at a high state of charge. But trojan also says to avoid keeping the batteries at a constant high state of charge. Actually Trojan doesn't say the above about freezing temps. They do say: Freezing usually results in irreparable damage to the plates and containers. It is therefore imperative that batteries that are subjected to freezing temperatures be stored fully charged or at a high state of charge.

RE: Battery

Wet cell batteries full charged with no load are fine in the cold all winter. Been doing that for 40+ years with the batteries in my boat. In Ont Canada it does get cold. Never had a problem. They discharge very little in cold weather. I would fully charge it, then equalize, disconnect the negative cable and recharge again in April. A good battery that is fully charged will not freeze over the winter months. Self discharge is also less in cold weather ^^^^^^ That's all you need to do for the winter. My batteries discharge less than 10% doing it that way for 5-6 months in the winter.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

Rv'ers sure love our stereotypes. We try to frame everyone into some sort of box. Resort Rv'ers have their noses in the air! If your not touching a blade of grass you're not a real RV'er? For the record, I don't consider hunting a sport or a challenge until we find a way to arm the animals so they can shoot back. Shooting a defenseless animal for sport is not a sport or my idea of fun. I do have many friends that hunt and I don't have any animosity towards them or any hunters. But hunting is not my thing. X2

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

My trailer is on pavement just long enough to find a dirt/gravel road to head off to a secluded post in the boonies.

RE: How much SOLAR?

Furnace is about 7 amps. The best answer I can give is 400, or, all you can afford and have room for. I did ok on 360 for years, but, just ok. X2 I think you would get by just fine with 400 watts.

RE: Battery storage

My fully charged then disconnected GC-2's lose less than 10% over a six month period from November to April.

RE: Furnace Cycles

Yes, there is a safety feature called a high limit switch that shuts the burner down if the heat exchanger gets too hot. But cycling on and off continually is not a normal operation for the furnace. There are a variety of reasons for cycling, but the two most common reasons are restricted ducts and faulty limit switch.

RE: Dog Attack

3). I wish there would be a National law that if a dog is taken out (for any reason) it should be muzzled. Seriously? :S Look up the number of dog related deaths and injuries compared to the number of vehicular related deaths and injuries per year. What other laws are needed? All cars should be muzzled before leaving the driveway. Maybe there would be less injuries. :B
