RE: pure sine wave 1000 watts! but only 500 watts per plug

That is a good price for two 500 watt pure sine wave inverters.

RE: Solar panel

Another advantage with an MPPT controller is a higher harvest of amps from the panels vs a PWM controller.

RE: Hooking up trickle charger to golf cart batteries

how should I hook up a trickle charger to two golf cart batteries hooked up for 12 volts in my RV during storage? Positive to Negative on opposite batteries? Yes

RE: Fresh Water System Sanitizer

You can use household laundry bleach. Same amount, let it set, then flush out. Can use baking soda to kill taste and odor. That unit for $28 is just a container to hold your own household bleach.

RE: Harbor Freight Predator 3500 Generator On Sale!

The transfer switch that I use when powering my house with a generator is the main 200 amp breaker, I just click it off. Works just fine. How do you know the breaker is OFF.,,I may look off, but prove it. I have turned the main breaker off previously to work on the breaker panel, so I do know that it is off when I click it off.

RE: Boondocking --- Average AH consumption/day?

I have a 230 AH battery bank and 200 watts of solar. Never watch TV or listen to the entertainment center. Use an inverter sparingly to charge camera batteries and cell phone. Have LED lighting, absorption fridge on propane, use water pump throughout the day and the exhaust fan sparingly. On an average 24 hour day we use about 50 AH (a little over 25% of the battery bank). Batteries are back to 100% charge by early afternoon each day (as long as there is sunshine).

RE: Changing refrigerator cooling unit...New or Refurbished??

OP stated: "Recently it stopped cooling on either propane or electric" "The heating element is good (as I can feel the stack getting hot on either propane or electric)." So yes, it seems pretty obvious. Unless both heating element and propane system quit working properly at exactly the same time or the flue just suddenly is in need of cleaning. ;)

RE: Changing refrigerator cooling unit...New or Refurbished??

I think it is pretty straight forward. If the boiler is heating properly as the OP stated and no cooling, the cooling unit is shot.

RE: Changing refrigerator cooling unit...New or Refurbished??

When a thermistor goes bad it causes the fridge to become extremely cold. If the "heating element" was getting hot and the fridge not cooling then the cooling unit is shot. Time to replace it.

RE: Flying to the USA and shipping car

99.6% survival rate. Don't believe the hysteria. If you're afraid then stay home but the rest of us should be able to lead our lives, we'll even stay in your empty camping spots. Actually it is 97.5% survival rate in the US, using the US stats.

RE: How to winterize batteries on the TT?

Leave them where they are at. Check the water level, add distilled water if necessary. Fully charge the batteries then disconnect either the negative cable or the positive cable. Come back next spring and re-charge the 10% of charge the batteries will lose over the winter. I have been doing this with my existing batteries for 8 years and they are still going strong.

RE: I'm hooked!

Boondocking is what camping is all about. The peace and quiet of being out in the wilderness with no one else around is priceless. Yes it is. But, if possible, some people would try to park 10' from your rig. It's their nature. I see that all the time a short distance West of where I live. I make a point of going further West to secluded places where there is room for only 1 RV for at least a kilometer around.

RE: 1157 Style LED Interior Bulb Warm Lighting?

1141 LED is a common interior lamp Won't work in an 1157 socket. Exactly! The numbers describe the physical and electrical aspects of the lamp. You don't put gasoline in a diesel or shampoo in the dishwasher! Anybody ever seen a dual contact interior light socket? I've seen 1157 bulbs wedged into a 1141 socket for more light. The first indication is a melted lens, followed by a melted fixture. Not good. That would be interesting to see how that is done. Seeing as the sockets are not designed the same.

RE: Do RV Batteries Freeze in the Winter?

Ensure they are fully charged, then disconnect the terminals (mark first) and you will be fine. Also be sure to check the fluid levels in the cells before charging them up. My batteries are fully charged in the late fall then disconnected and left until early spring when they get recharged. They lose less than 10% charge outside in the 7 months of winter. They are now 8 years old and still going strong.

RE: How about a RGV update

The chance of you coming down with Covid19 and dying is lower than the chances of being killed in a vehicle accident on the way to an RV park. Do you wear a seatbelt? Yes, but a seat belt does not rule my life just the same as a virus is not going to. In a ‘typical’ year some 38,000 people are killed in car crashes and another 3 million or so are injured. This is NOT a typical year by any stretch of the imagination and it’s only 3/4 over. So far 214,000 people have died and 7.75 million people have been very sick. That 5.6 times the number of dead ....... so far........ and 2.5 times the number of ‘injured’ .... so far ......... You are unfortunately, I believe, correct with your assessment of coming bread lines and soup kitchens, but it will be solely because the virus was encouraged to spread by reckless behaviour and attitudes. How true. The US has approx 5% of the world population and close to 25% of the world wide fatal cases. I wonder why it's that way. :S

RE: Interstate 12volt golf cart battery

The max you get with a GR31 is 125 amp hr. Those GC12 are 150 amp hr. As others have said, your best choice is GC2 (6v golf cart batteries).
