RE: Hot Water Heater Funny Issue

We have a bunch of unemployed comedians and we can see why they are unemployed. :B

RE: Forthcoming Closures In E Washington as of 7/23/21

Unfortunately climate change is going to make situations like this worse in the near future.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

Azdryheat. You can keep your papers private but do not expect to travel outside the USA. Or even enter many concerts,sports events,museums,restaurants and more. Your choice. That's good stay put, you will be happy and we will be happy.

RE: Canada opens land border and more airports to US visitors

Sounds like they don’t want us there. Keep your money in the states. You are welcome here in Canada, the Covid is not.

RE: Walmart selling LiFePo4 batteries $539

Gdetrailer, Yes, I thought it was being backed up by Walmart. GD is basically correct, they kind of operate like Amazon. But, every once in a while they have a great deal I can't pass up and I just have it shipped to the local store for free. Don't know what their return policy is but it's assume it's pretty liberal like their in store returns. Never had to return anything. I think you can do returns at the store but somebody should check me on that. They had a smoking deal on the Carlisle Radial Trailer tires I purchased for my old trailer a couple years ago. Discount Tire is right next door so they matched the price. Twice previous I have ordered from a third party vendor and Walmart excepted the return as if it was purchased in store.

RE: Should Be Simple But..

Turn on pump and leave it on so there is constant pressure just like being connected to "park water" for a few hours. If no leak then you know the leak is on the "park water" supply. That will help narrow it down a bit.

RE: black water tank treatments

Been using 1 cup Calgon, 1/2 cup laundry soap (about every third dump) for two decades and have had great success. Sensors have even worked great.

Nice to see that you have edited out all your sarcasm and name calling. Good for you. Cheers

RE: Griz kills women outside Glacier

The poor poor bear was disoriented, hungry, having a bad hair day and as always angry. They can easily run at least 35 mph and are top apex predators. Some folks including a federal judge wants to reestablish them in California, Colorado, etc so I heard a year ago. Kids are like yum yum candy to them I suspect. I never camp or fish or hike where I have to look over my shoulder constantly and always scanning 360 degrees. I am constantly in black bear country but not concerned as I carry spray and heavy duty iron for. Mountain lions and rattle snakes are more of a threat to my personal safety than black bears IMHO. Never encountered one in many years of outdoor activities in PNW states but prepared for the eventual happening. I enjoy being a bully to the bullies on another forum. Cheers I don't see the humor here. I'm I missing something? My heart goes out to her family.

RE: New battery no power

Good to hear that you found the problem.

RE: New battery no power

Check for a small circuit breaker within 3 feet of the battery. There should be a very small reset button, push to reset. If there is 12v power when plugged in the reverse polarity fuses are OK and the converter is working.

RE: Help please!

This is a State specific question. Did you answer if you had gone to DMV or not? For something this old they should just push it through with little concern. In my State they would just need the bill of sale with sellers signature (eh hmm, my forgery of it) on a scrap of paper to issue plates. My state does not require titles for something this old. This is a trailer or motor vehicle? I had a vehicle I got from a friend from out of state. I went to get plates and they said I just need to get a bill of sale from him since there was no title. I went out, found some paper, wrote up one, signed it for him, came back in and said, "I found it". She knew what I just did and kind of laughed it off because what are they going to do? I went out with plates and paperwork. Done. The success also depends on the person behind the DMV counter. They know tricks to push things through sometimes, and sometimes the worker be dont care. The clue is in the original post. :B

RE: Inverter Microwave - Current Draw vs. Power Setting

You're Welcome! Glad I could help.

RE: Inverter Microwave - Current Draw vs. Power Setting

You are right about the lower setting. Below 30% power the magnetron does cycle on and off according to the KILL A WATT meter.

RE: Solar panels vs shade cloth

"Has anyone measured roof temperatures in direct sunlight vs underneath a solar panel that is stood off the roof an inch or two on brackets?" I believe because of the air gap between the panels and the roof it would be a bit cooler at the roof under the panels that not under the panels.

RE: Inverter Microwave - Current Draw vs. Power Setting

One of the guys here posted about his Panasonic MW that pulls less power with lower settings. A "normal" MW draws full power when on, but at lower settings is not "on" as much. A MSW inverter will draw less from the battery bank than a PSW inverter with a MW as load, but it takes longer to "cook" something. Even so, I found the MSW draws fewer AH doing that because the Amps component is bigger than the Hours component. Also a potato is "ready" when you stick a knife in it, and how soft you want it is subjective, and it softens more after you take it out of the MW, so just when is a potato "done" anyway? Also with things you have to cool down before you can eat them. Why get them so hot? Some older MWs like the one in our 1991 C will not run on MSW so you need a PSW inverter anyway. MWs since at least 2003 (as in our 5er we had) run ok on MSW. You do need a MSW inverter that is rated to run motors though. They can do a MW. Standard MWs use a PWM method when you set the power level lower than 100% basically changing the duty cycle to control power level. Basically the average power is lower during the MW operation. They vary the time ON vs Time OFF and when ON, the magnetron is at full wattage. Example, 90% power level and the magnetron is ON 90% of the time and 10% OFF of the time. 50% setting magnetron is ON 50% and OFF 50%. Boondocker has said that they see half the current draw at 50% with their Inverter MW which means the inverter type are not using full on power, so they must be lowering the magntrons input voltage to lower the output. Interesting.. From what I understand this is the way it operates.

RE: Inverter Microwave - Current Draw vs. Power Setting

Just did a test on my inverter mic and at full power it draws 16 amps. At 50% power it draws 8 amps. Tested with a Kill A WATT meter.
