RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

The next person I hear using an impact on their stabilizers im throwing their impact in the garbage or in a lake! :B Please use a cordless drill! Just tell them to use their open air generator to power the impact. That will drown out the sound of the noisy impact. :B

There is no 'perfect' vaccine available anywhere. The problem with the death rate in the US, IMO, is the large number of people refusing to get vaccinated. Totally agree.

The grim milestone of this endless pandemic was just hit a few days ago. Over 1 million people have perished in the US because of it. Hopefully they will get the perfect vaccine developed that will crush this disease and will only be a once a year jab like the flu shot. The US really is need of a perfect vaccine. Sadly their death rate is 3X that of Canada per capita.

RE: Tripping solar panel breaker

IMO a thirty amp fuse would not be excessive. X2

RE: Solar panel

If the controller does require a battery, you also will need a timer. If you put a battery in and the fan runs when there is voltage from the battery, the battery will tend to run down at night. Might last a few weeks but constantly running the battery to 0% charge will kill the battery very quickly. This 12V timer would work for your application.

RE: Solar panel

Sounds like a nice controller, but now you'll need a battery. In fact, many controllers will be damaged if you hook solar input to them without having it hooked to a battery. I'm not sure why someone said it needed to be an MPPT, we're talking a single 100 W 12V panel here. I'm not saying MPPT can't provide more than PWM, but on a small scale like this it is not something worth paying for. Some controllers do have a "load" output which would do what you're trying with the fan. But I think would still need a battery. The difference between PWM and MPPT would be at least 1.5 amps more using an MPPT controller with that panel.

RE: Solar panel

A controller will not work without a battery connected. That panel will not put out the amps needed for the fan.

RE: Member Blocking is a Blessing

Hey I'm an old man in a young spirited body and I do know for a fact that I am right about the young spirit. I try to do things that a young man would do, but usually don't achieve them and that is plain wrong. Go easy on me. :p :B

RE: 80 amp charge controller

I have used their 40A controller for 12 years and have had zero problems.

RE: Silver Bullet Hose

Don’t know, ain’t worth my time looking it up to see what your talking about; if you’d have provided a link, maybe. Here You Go

RE: Sodium Ion battery

Interesting!…Would be a good thing - no doubt there’s waaaay more salt on the earth than Lithium!!…Makes me wonder if it has similar characteristics as SiO2?. FWIW (on a lighter note!), when my boy was just a young’ien we once made a battery out of a Lemon, a nickel and a copper penny…We never evaluated it in cold weather (or for it’s Peukert), but as I recall, it’s voltage curve faded fairly fast, and shortly thereafter it succumbed to a Low voltage disconnect - lol…:) 3 tons The LBMS kicked in and shut it down. :B

RE: Snow on solar panels clean off or not?

Squeegee or push broom, either one will work just fine.

RE: What is happening with our members?

Some people get grouchy and intolerant as they get older. :B And other people become more helpful as they age.

RE: Keystone Springdale - Very Low Drain Pipes

I would cut the end as close as possible and still be able to get a coupling on it. A 22.5 or something would bring the tip of the pipe up a bit. x2 X3

RE: No gas to cook top

Kids are camped at Canyonlands NP at 5400 feet. New Escape RV. Gas to all other appliances except Dometic two burner cook top. It was working just a day ago at lower elevation. Is altitude really the issue or can there be something else. Do piezo wires have to be connected (I assume they are) for gas to flow? Propane tanks are full. No, the piezo assembly will not stop the gas flow.

RE: Water fill connection fitting

1/2" plastic hose barb. (1/2 male pipe thread by 1/2" hose barb ) common, easy to obtain fitting. No need for 3d printing or anything more. Any home depot or hardware store will have it 1/2 barb x 1/2 pipe thread is common. barb x spigot that the OP is looking for is not so common.

RE: Water fill connection fitting

Google hose barb to pipe thread adapter. It is not pipe thread x barb, it is a spigot x barb.

RE: Water fill connection fitting

Here is another link for the spigot x barb fitting. Doesn't look like they make a 1 3/8. I bet your fitting is a 1 1/2.

RE: Water fill connection fitting

Found these spigot x barb fittings, but no 1 3/8.
