RE: Battery disconnect - switch or fuse?

The 10A fuse could for the slide out if the trailer has one. Take your pick negative side or positive side for the switch. I would be inclined to use an inline circuit breaker on the side with a single wire.

RE: Battery disconnect - switch or fuse?

I use a 12 volt circuit breaker, works great. https://i.imgur.com/euVLZ2ul.jpg

RE: Charging 6v golf cart batteries?

So someone split my 12 volt battery in half. :E Must have been the previous owner.

RE: Charging 6v golf cart batteries?

My trailer must be an oddball, because I have (2) 6 volt batteries. Taking into account that there are not supposed to be any 6 volt batteries in trailers, very strange indeed.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

It was an accurate description. We always wear sidearms when in remote areas.. Would it have made you feel better if I had left that out? Why didn't you state what color t-shirt he was wearing? Because I don't know what color it was. I am not making stuff up.... I do not "know" what he was having for dinner either... Odds are it was a Porterhouse, but I am not sure,,, so I left it out. If you provide me with a list of things you want to know... I will call him and find out. Wow, that went way over you head. The point is the color shirt he was wearing, what he had for dinner or if he had a gun is irrelevant to your story...unless he was using the gun to threaten.Well it would have been stupid to disarm himself to go talk to him. They were in the middle of nowhere, with no phone service. For all he knew the fella could have been an escaped convict. Remaining armed in such a situation is the prudent thing to do.... If you feel that was threatening, you must be scared a LOT. One last time, then I'll drop it. The question wasn't if he felt really scared, so needed to have a gun on him. The point was if no threats were made, the gun is irrelevant to the story (diesel or gas truck...also irrelevant)...hence, the only reason to include it was if someone made a threat and there was no indication in your story that the new guy made a threat, so the logical conclusion was he didn't just have it on him but used it as a tacit threat. WTH!!! :h What happened to this thread?!!! Typical playground argument. :B

RE: black tank not venting?

It isn't clear to my why, even if the vent pipe is inserted 1/3 the way down into the black tank, why there would be pressure built up. It isn't a sealed system (because of the vent...even if the tube is submerged) so there shouldn't be pressure. Yes, the toilet might burp a bit, but not actual pressure. The liquid would rise up the vent tube as the tank fills. When the toilet is flushed the liquid would rush back down the vent tube. Causing a release of pressure through the toilet.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Be careful now, those threatening stabilizers can be scary. Be sure to always carry a big impact gun. :B

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Some just can't keep their weird politics out of the OPs simple non political question about drill motor for stabilizers. I like the yellow cordless drill motor. Its easy to spot when I leave it on the ground. But it's all relevant. We've had 11 maniac waving gun incidents in this one single state park during the last 2 days over drill motors, 16 over loud music, 5 over yapping chihuahuas, 7 over dogs pooping, and 4 over bucket lights in trees. The problem is looking at drill motor issues thu political glasses when politics (neocon or libs) has nothing to do with the OPs simple question. Yep, time the Mod's input. :S

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

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

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.

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

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

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