RE: Aqua Hot panel dead

Load check the batteries as discharged batteries may be compromised.

RE: Hemet, CA to Klamath River RV Park, CA

101 through SF is very narrow, a van type RV should be OK.

RE: Hemet, CA to Klamath River RV Park, CA

Looks this trip is back on sometime in July/August! Still not sure about going over the GG bridge towing a trailer. Trying to weigh the experience for my adult son and older teen and the traffic/stress. This is to be an enjoyable trip and most stress comes from towing. Better than driving through LA! Have any of you crossed towing a trailer? What was the experience like? Would you recommend it? YES I think the suggestions about staying overnight at an RV park near the GG and then driving over/back (without towing trailer) for the experience, might be the best option for us. Am I correct in thinking that if we stay at an RV park on the south side of the GG, this would mean driving over the GG (northbound) and then driving back (southbound) back to RV park? NO You could cross GG one time with the trailer, or several times w/o the trailer.Even better is to park and walk on the GG. With that said.....what would be the preferred places to stay (3 stop overs, with last one at/near GG with hook ups)? Suggestions indicate that the 5/20/101 is preferable routes from SoCal. If you want to bypass the bay area! There are several alternate E bay routes. Thanks!

RE: Hemet, CA to Klamath River RV Park, CA

San Francisco RV Resort in Pacifica is the best CG, $$$. Candlestick RV Park $$$$, overpriced but it has the location, adjacent to higher crime area so go directly on/off 101. There are several in Daly City plus further south. I’ve taken 280, 19ave, GG Bridge many times with the current rig and toad. Yes it’s 7 miles of city driving, 2/3 lanes stay center/right lane, mid day only, I don’t have the aversion to this route that many do. NEVER TAKE A RV ON 101 THROUGH SF. SF has a homeless/drug problem like many other cities. Stay in the tourist areas. Never park and put something in the trunk, never leave anything in the vehicle, they are watching.

RE: Water Pressure Regulator

I've used that regulator for several years, no problems.

RE: Boondocking on Oxygen Can it Be Done?

It sounds like you're set up pretty well. Maybe you could do a test run from home a few days before you hit the road. Good for you for pushing through your limitations and getting out there.X2 Plus test with one option failing like the 10 liter machine or the portable and have a backup plan to get home.

RE: Tripping solar panel breaker

how do u find out how many bypass diodes are in a panel? I don't think I have ever seen that listed?It should be in the specs or panel information. Opening the junction box will reveal the diodes. It's common for 1 diode per 2 rows. So a 60 cell panel is 10x6 cells with a diode for every 10x2 section, so 3 diodes.

RE: Tripping solar panel breaker

I don't know why you have to fuse panels.Serial and 2 parallel panels don't need a fuse. 3 or more panels can cause a fire in a shorted panel and hence each panel should be fused at the combiner box to prevent excessive amps to the defective panel.

RE: Is there an Air Conditioner using Inverter Compressor

If you mean one that runs on 12V DC inverted to 120V AC that would be rather inefficient vs a DC motor or just a AC motor. A 120V 10A AC draw for a air conditioner would draw about 110A DC which would among other things require very large wires to the roof.

RE: Tripping solar panel breaker

I am looking at changing the controler to a MPPT so I can put them in series. in parralel with a 8 ga wire you are looking at losing up to 0.38V over 10 feet, in series that would be a voltage drop of 0.19. doesnt sound like much but it adds up..Series also has greater shade tolerance/power with panels that have bypass diodes (most have them). My 3 series 30V panels have 3 bypass diodes, so 10V per panel section. I've seen charging at 20V increasing in 10V increments to 90V due to a leafy shade tree. ie The 20V can be from 2 different panels. Parallel would require sun on the entire panel and hence charging would occur with 1, 2 or 3 panels with sun.

RE: Removing Shower Doors

Maybe find out who made the door and someone who is familiar with that product. Pictures? Their might also be a way to partially disassembly the frame to remove the door. Or other cleaning methods including sprays, brushes like tooth brushes etc?

RE: Gas fridge on the move?

You could have other issues. Replace the regulator to eliminate it. Look up how to clean the nozzle and do so. Purchase or modify a second nozzle for high elevation and change as needed. Check the ignitor, etc. One main propane concern occurs with a crash causing a leak while driving. Current propane tanks detect excessive flow and shut down the supply. Many/most of us drive with the propane on.

RE: Yuma

We look for good power for the ACs. A 6' tree is considered a shade tree in AZ. Expect 100F+. :B

RE: Power drain

engine battery's will die without being disconnected or hooked to a trickle charger. the computer will run it down over a month. Computer drain should leave enough power to start the vehicle every 2-3 weeks. Get a master disconnect switch or a trickle charger. Chasing small power drains not be easily taught.X2

RE: Solar panel

Most panels don't have blocking diodes which would be undesirable for series connections. Instead the controller prevents back feeding at night. Plus without a battery there is no back feeding. :B
