RE: 12V heater run straight from solar panel

There are a lot of 12v heaters on Amazon and Ebay. Those 12v heaters are real power hogs. You would need a minimum 400 watts of solar to run a 300 watt heater. Which would put out very little heat in a large space.

RE: Would solar be effective in the midwest?

Solar is just a way to extend the time between generator/charger recharging. I highly doubt that statement. I use just solar to charge my GC2's. I have never used a generator to charge my 8 year old batteries and they are still going strong. I boondock 99% of the time. Right, so your time with solar between gen/charger charging is long enough so you don't have to use the gen before getting to shore power again. That can be all summer or for several days in winter, whatever the scenario is. Including how many batteries in the bank, and your daily usage. The last time my batteries were on shore power was 4 summers ago for one week. That is a pretty long extended time. :)

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

“Especially those of us on fixed income, with no hope of annual raises.” Your Social Security isn’t fixed. Go back to work if you are in “dire straights.” Widdis you are consistent! We can ALWAYS count on you for a negative offensive post. Congrats, again you have not let us down. Unfortunately we have a few too many members like that on this forum.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

coronavirus: 298 so far Are you freaking nuts, Northern Italy doubled that number in one day. Reading comprehension? Daytrader said that was number as of Mar 21st in the USA.

RE: BATTERY WATER?????

RO water is comparable to distilled water, so go for it.

RE: Solar Questions

Sorry I made a typo....Boob Docker, you are correct, I read that you can get 30 AMP-Hours per day and not 30 Amps from a 100 Watt panel.....my bad. Is that a realistic assumption? Yes, 30 ah with a 100 watt panel on a good day is a realistic assumption.

RE: Solar Questions

Your average 8 cubic foot absorption fridge running on propane with out the freezer door heater operating will idle at approx 0.3 amps and approx 0.8 amps when cooling. So the average amp hours per day would be about 15 ah per 24 hours.

RE: Solar Questions

Hi RJsfishin, I get 17 amps from 256 watts of panels, if the battery bank is hungry enough. Mppt controller, and series/parallel wiring is what it takes to do so. Quote: I read that you can get approximately 30 amps from a 100 Watt solar panel, ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Dream on !! It has to be a very good day if I ever see 18 amps from my 3 100 watt panels. You will seldom if ever see 8amps per panel I do believe the OP meant 30 amp hours per day with a 100 watt panel , not 30 amps per panel.

RE: Anyone lose a set of keys

This reminds me of the petty arguments in grade school. :B

RE: Anyone lose a set of keys

Oh my goodness... A set of RV keys is a couple of dollars, they are universal. The OP did what he thought is right and the Cranks come out in force. Go camping already, sheesh... X2 Grouching on a forum is more fun than camping for some people on this site. :B

RE: Portable suitcase solar panels

Thanks guys! I'm also debating between 100 amp and 200 amp. Mainly used for LCD lights, ceiling fan, furnace, water pump; we dry camp up to 5-6 days at a time before moving on. I would go with 200 watts, that way you won't be disappointed.

RE: We were shocked to learn our newly purchased TT

Is it true that a 2020 keystone hideout 338lhs could only have a gas water heater?? That's what the lady who showed us the features of the trailer said, but I wasn't 100% sure she knew what she was talking about cause then in the same breath said 'but the outside is electric" You can turn on the water heater from inside via propane only. You can turn on the water heater via electric from the outside at the heater.
