RE: Norcold Fridge on Propane Question

Really? What is an RM8,there is virtually no info on the net.And,seems you do not understand logic,when the thermostat calls for more cooling, the flame gets higher, and the increased flame makes the ammonia heater work harder, producing more potential to remove heat from the inside of the refrigerator.AND,as it appears you do nothave/own a fully electronic refrig. your symptoms are perfectly normal.same as if you do not take your foot off the gas pedal, when rushing downhill. :h So when the fridge is running on 120V instead of propane does the heating element receive more power to make it hotter. It seems someone here does not understand how an absorption fridge controls the temperature in the N306. :) BYPASS Refers have a BYPASS tstat that regulates the flame height. These refers have an additional mechanical 120 volt point Tstat. You do not understand how it controls. This particular refer does NOT have a Bypass tstat. It has a mechanical GAS tstat. The instructions clearly state that it has LOW-MED-HI for Gas control. YOU have to manually go from the 3 settings to change the temp if it gets too cold. It does NOT change the flame height like a bypass gas control. Doug I guess I am the one that does not understand the operation of the N306. :S My apologies to MT BOB

RE: RV Ferry cost to Vancouver Island?

It is not a bad thing. Just kind of funny how often that saying is brought up in this forum. It's all good. :)

RE: Solar Battery Charge Issue

The two lead acid Duralast batteries that I charge with the Renogy 100W solar suitcase are rated at 65 amp hours each. 100W "suitcase is not "rated 65Ahr", more like 6.5A hr and that would be in full sun at noon during the summer solstice with the panel pointed directly at the sun with no clouds in the sky. That max only lasts at best 4hr-5hrs a day. If it was 65Ahr, that would be on the order of 57.1A! To get the 65Ahr you would need 10 of those panels. I think you misunderstood what KenS999 was saying. his batteries are 65 AH each.

RE: RV Ferry cost to Vancouver Island?

You assume I might know where to search for that! Google is your friend. Search “BC Ferries rates”. Helpful group this afternoon. Give a man a fish, feed him for a day, teach a man to fish, feed him for life...... Maybe this forum should just be closed and a message put on the website: Goggle Is Your Friend. ;) :B

RE: Running a generator to exercise it when there's shore power?

If we need to "exercise" a generator to make sure it is still working, what other RV appliances should we exercise? Do we need to operate the stove, refrigerator, microwave, furnace, water heater and/or AC monthly? Didn't the dealer tell you to do that at least once a week. Shame on them! I do mine daily when I'm camping. Keeps them in top shape.

RE: Battery Question..

Temps 50-90F three to four months 30-60 six months 0-40 eight months A generator is neat for maintenance, turning lights on, vacuuming and dusting. If the batteries somehow are low a 1,000 watt may be too small and stall out. X2

RE: Furnace/water heater

Both run off 12 volt. Is the battery charged and the battery cut-off switch turned on? This^^^^ Propane is common but stove OK then DC Voltage is the other common component ***first time trying furnace/water in awhile......then could be propane flow Might have to try each appliances several times to establish full flow/pressure at each one ^^^^ That was more than likely the problem.

RE: Honda 2000i Runs but no Power

IDman, I should have bought a Champion 3400 with remote electric start instead of the Yamaha. You would have been sorry. He already is sorry that he bought a Yamaha instead of a good ole Champion. :B

RE: Will a 100 watt solar panel be enough

100 watts is a little shy of what is needed. 200 watts would be good and leave some excess power too. This is assuming no inverter use, or high wattage items. This would be the best idea, 200 watts.

RE: Charger and Solar controller not meshing well?

You should have the controller's pos and neg to the battery independent of the WFCO charger's pos and neg to the battery. (WFCO neg might include some frame which is ok) I'm curious, why would that make a difference? Is it because of voltage loss between WFCO and battery? I was not very clear. The two need to be in parallel to the battery, which could allow them to share their output wires. what is not allowed is for one's output wires or even one wire to go to the input of the other. Thanks for the clarification.

RE: Do you sanitize your black tank?

Sanitize the black tank??? What are you planning to do, haul drinking water in it? That's like asking people who are on their own septic tanks is they sanitize them. Bill For sure, you can never have enough drinking water. What, you never sanitize you septic tank, shame on you.

RE: Battery charging question.

OP- Now to answer your original question. I would recommend a pair of GC2 batteries.
