RE: Can1500w inverter or Honda 2k gen work 900w Microwave

Ok, out at the beach camping with my brother. Put the kill-a-watt on directly to inverter and turned on microwave. He was shocked to see 1500-1550 watts. We did a bunch of other testing, but bottom line is microwave exceeds power limits of inverter. He will get a 2000w.

RE: Can1500w inverter or Honda 2k gen work 900w Microwave

My brother now says he isn't sure if he has run the microwave off the generator now. He's been in full hookup CGs a few times. Not much dry camping since Covid. So the Honda 2200i must be able to handle the microwave. It's just the GoPower 1500w inverter. GoPower wants him to do some tests tomorrow and give them a call back. I will be able to check it out tomorrow afternoon at the CG. I have the devices to do so. I bet he has something drawing extra power from the inverter.

RE: Can1500w inverter or Honda 2k gen work 900w Microwave

MY brother travels alone and only uses the microwave to cook or defrost for s hort time. He only drains the 200amp bank about 50amps max and he has 400watts of solar which usually recharges the batteries. Again, I will see him tomorrow at the campground and give it a full checkout. I think his microwave has his inverte overloaded and cutting out because of it. He called GoPower today but hasn't returned my call yet.

RE: Can1500w inverter or Honda 2k gen work 900w Microwave

My brother says he has 2awg cable going from inverter to 2 BB Lithium batteries. He is calling GoPower today as he bought their inverter with their recommendation. He says all testing has been done directly with isolated circuits soley the microwave. If he can get the inverter to handle the load, then he can alway use it that way instead of using the microwave. I will be camping with him tomorrow and will bring all my test equipment like clamp-on ammeter, Kill-a-watt and short power cored with exposed wiring for clamp-on use.

Can1500w inverter or Honda 2k gen work 900w Microwave

My brother has a High Point microwave 900w with 1350w operating. He says the inverter won't run the microwave even on a totally isolated circuit. Starts then stops. Now he is worried that his Hoinda 2200i generator may not have enough power either. He has major trips coming up and wants to get the microwave working off shore power.

RE: Convict Lake, CA questions??

I just re-watched that video -- hilarious! You can't understand a word I'm saying other than "40 or 50 knots." Which is all that needs to be said, right? Dan do you have Convict Lake in your travel log? If so, what month and year?

RE: Convict Lake, CA questions??

Using jugs to supplement your onboard water is fine. Attaching the hose to the spigot to fill your tank is not. Yes I agree! Saw a camper run a 100' hose from the restroom across the road to his RV in Upper Pines in Yosemite to fill his tank. By the time a ranger showed up, he was full. Got just a warning. Anyone know if there is cell coverage at Convict Lake? I read it's 1 bar for Verizon. that meanslittle to nothiong from my experience. Their coverage map shows 4G up to the lake. But that doesn't mean anything.

RE: Convict Lake, CA questions??

With water spigots available nothing wrong with filling any fresh water tanks manually with 6 gallon water jugs. That's what I was hoping we could do if there was no potable water at dump station. It's only my brother and 3 nights. I could always spare 20 gallons for him if needed. I have 2 blue 2 1/2 gallon water jugs.

RE: Convict Lake, CA questions??

Are there spgots with potable water within the CG for dishwashinbg? These questions are mostly for my brother with a TT. I have a fully self contained MH with plenty of FW and I travel with it full, always.

RE: Convict Lake, CA questions??

Too old to mountain bike. DW has a trike, any where to ride flat ground or just from CG to lodge?

Convict Lake, CA questions??

Going to Convict Lake next week for the first time. Going over Google satellite photo I see the dump is on the main road going up between lodge and CG. Is there potable water to fill my tank so as not to haul that extra weight? I don't see where there is a kiosk or location for campsite check-in? Is this a good place for an inflatible kayak? And lastly, are there bike trails or should we leave them home?

RE: How much is too much voltage from chargers 14.6v?

Thanks

How much is too much voltage from chargers 14.6v?

Wondering if a converter charger or solar controller putting 14.6v into Lithium batteries is too much for the fridge, water heater, furnace and 2000w inverter?

RE: should Onan gen make noise when applying load and shut down?

Found "Yes" if the droop is incorrectly set. Making the adjustment cures it.

RE: should Onan gen make noise when applying load and shut down?

So after using Seafoam and 1 gallon of fresh gas treatment the generator has quieted down, for start of applying load and shut down. And new hearing aids work great!

RE: should Onan gen make noise when applying load and shut down?

Onan attempts to maintain the same RPM - so yeah it runs a bit louder when it's under load. NBD. You and I should get together and have Alzheimer drink. Getting new hearing aids on Wednesday or is it Thursday???

should Onan gen make noise when applying load and shut down?

My 6 year old Onan 4000 generator is making a more noticeable noise when applying load and when shutting down. Almost sounds like a muffler leak for a moment, otherwise it runs quieter. Is this normal, I don't recall.

RE: What to do about old gas in tank

Just got back from Yosemite. Old gas wasn't an issue. I did throw in a can of Seafoam before leaving. Actually got the best MPG ever at 9.2 for the trip home. It's usually 7.8-8.2 mpg. Probably stretches of construction with 55 mph and the Grapevine climb was a slow 40mph because of stalled trucks.

E-450 16" tire valve size?

Anyone know what size tire valve the 2015 Ford E450 16" rim takes? Going to order extended metal valves for duals. 4.53 or 6.25?

Looking for Conditions at Yosemite Upper Pines

Anyone recently been there? We have reservations for Upper Pines in the coming weeks and were wondeering what the conditions were. To be more specific, are the roads inside Upper Pines clear of snow? One year we went this time and had trouble getting into the campsite as they cleared the roads but pushed all the snow in the site to it's rear and it froze. When we arrived, the site length available was much shorter. They do an excellent job of clearing snow on the valley roads and those leading into the park. Yes, I have chains and have installed them once or twice. We try to avoid having to use them by waiting until later in the day when the roads have been plowed. Should be an interesting experience with no shuttles, 2 of the 3 CG's closed along with Curry Village and most shops. Main Village market is open, but we come fully stocked. Should be an adventure!
