RE: Hwy 89A in Northern Arizona

HorseDoc, we are coming south out of Utah going to The Paiute campground near Fredonia, AZ. Was thinking about Hwy89A over to Page. After reading these posts, I think we'll take Hwy89 across Utah down to Page. Thoughts on that? I noticed we both joined in September of 2002. I beat you by 12 days LOL...We've taken that section of 89A w/o any issues. Highly recommend you see North Rim.

RE: Solar charger

i'd guess the controller has a short or if no controller the panel is shorted. For a followup check the panels Voc and Isc to be sure it's OK. Then reconnect with new wires and check V and A on the battery wires.

RE: Honda 3000

That's 25A so you would need 2 smaller A/C units and startup surge could be a issue. I'd say it won't be reliable let alone other RV draws.

RE: Hwy 89A in Northern Arizona

IF you are referring to the section of 89A from Flagstaff to Prescott it's not a road for RVs except small ones. We've used 89A for the North Rim w/o issues. Update: 89A between Sedona and Cottonwood is fine for large RVs and there are many off road camping sites which can be reached from several roads off of I17. The Red Rock Ranger District Visitor Center has an excellent map. I would also not take the 89A out of Cottonwood through Jerome.

RE: Driver’s license for DPs

IMHO it's not law enforcement you need to be worried about, however it is the ambulance chasing attorneys if you're ever involved in an accident, at fault or not. *DING DING DING* Driving illegally would be fantasy level stuff for a lawyer.Absolutely agree! We don't expect the unexpected. But should one have a injury accident and not have the required license - well I wouldn't want to be explaining that to a judge.

RE: 12v? 24v? 36...48v????

StirCrazy Serial panels with bypass diodes which all large panels have is more shade tolerant than parallel panels and this is especially true when there is shade like a A/C involved. It's a factor but not necessarily hugh. I wanted a more efficient system but adding another panel may be a better price performance option. For me 1500W solar systems "require" the larger 60/72 cell panels and MPPT. 12V panels for 1500W is certainly possible but last time I looked more panel cost and more panel square footage.

RE: 12v? 24v? 36...48v????

The wide variety of responses has been so much better than I anticipated! The longest wire run should be from the pvs to charge controller(s). I still don't know how I'm going to accomplish that part. I'm hoping to keep all other components within just a few feet of each other. I'm leaning toward sticking with 12v just for simplicity, but will still weigh my options as I acquire stuff.I wired 3 panels in serial with the standard 10ga wire. 62' of wire 0.6% wiring loss. About 100Vmp, Consider a serial/parallel connection and be sure your controller can handle the panel Voc.

RE: 12v? 24v? 36...48v????

1500W is 125A @12V hence equipment layout is also a consideration as to much wiring voltage loss is a consideration. And the solar controller, inverter, charger and battery proximity is a factor. All of the equipment, your intended usage and expectations and cost are also factors. Look at the entire system and various tradeoffs for what is best for you as there are many considerations besides DC voltage.

RE: Water works in bathroom, but Kitchen sink is just a trickle

Is either water pipe hot or at least warm right at the HW tank? If so you most likely have a bypass problem. My next step would be to check for 120V on the AC input terminals.

RE: Water works in bathroom, but Kitchen sink is just a trickle

Clean the faucat screen, possible fillter for the sink. Check hot water heater bypass valves and outside water valves closed. Check that the heater is working and producing hot water.

RE: Overload built-in Onan gen. without popping a breaker?

Did it blink a fault code?

RE: Driver’s license for DPs

Check the DVM requirements for your home state for license requirements. DLs are recopical in all other states.

RE: Leaking walls

The leak source and also be windows, lights, seams etc.

RE: Electric and ICE forever together?

No one knows the future of batteries and fuel capability and related costs. What is known is that Detroit resists change until they are given no choice. Don't think that Californias leading edge requirements won't effect other states etc as California alone has a significant market share. Just my opinion.

RE: Leaking walls

The leak can be anywhere including the other side of the trailer as water can/does travel. Don't assume there is one leak or it's near where you see it inside. Resolve now as water can cause very extensive and expensive damage which may already be in progress.

RE: Residential Frig doors lock

Cut a piece of plywood to fit behind the handles to secure everything. Various other solutions have been posted, do a search.

RE: Which BIG RIG TRUCK atlas do you use?

My advice is to not trust anything you read or GPS information on clearances plus those overpasses that may not be printed or correct. Likely most major truck routes are OK but there are many roads that are not truck routes. Above all else accurately measure your height! Don't believe what you might read about your RV height. Most fuel stations are OK but not all, let alone other structures. Clearance signs should be accurate but could have changed due to road construction. There are periodic posts of trucks and RVs with an undesirable close relationship to the overpass.

RE: Question about double towing

Total length can also be a restriction because it's not reciprocal.

RE: Need a new toad-a sporty one

Our house is in the pine trees of So Oregon and we stay for six months in the M/H in a seniors park in Mesa, Az So I don't need a Jeep, I may buy back my Miata from the insurance company and repair it myself. The problem is getting it back to my shop in Or. BobShip it (likely $1000+), minimum repair so it's drivable, trailer tow it with the MH or other vehicle.
