RE: Those with portable surge protector

My home is fairly new and good wiring. I do not use it at home. P

RE: House Batteries are fully charged but acts like they are not

If connections are good, then it sounds to me like batteries are worn out ... no capacity to hold a good charge for more than a couple minutes. I assume if wet cells that water levels are good? Wonder how old those batteries are. I agree with previous poster... you need to have a decent load test made.

RE: Move to Motorhome

I find it interesting that no one has pointed out any Class C shorter RVs on the Sprinter or Ford Transit chassis with diesel engines that get twice the mileage of the E350 and E450 Ford gas engines..... albeit they have less GCWR ratings though.

RE: 12V electrical questions

If you don't need 120V power except for battery charging, you don't need an inverter/charger, but you will need a converter designed for lithium batteries. See ***Link Removed***. Thanks! Thats exactly the information I was looking for! I agree! Sounds like Sailon was about the only one to understand what you have and what you want.

RE: Pet Health Insurance - Which One?

Maybe you can contact your Vet and see what policies they accept or if they have any problems with certain plans? I do not believe vets play any part in Pet Health Insurance least not for the insurance policy we have. After paying the vet bill, We simply send the insurance a copy of the vets bill invoice and they reimburse.

RE: How to add bleach to fresh water tank

1/4 cup of bleach per 15 gallons of fresh water capacity. That would be one cup of bleach for a 60 gallon tank. Pour the bleach into a gallon container of fresh water and use that to put into the tank. Not good to pour straight bleach into the system.

RE: Pet Health Insurance - Which One?

Just got a new dog and want to get her Pet health insurance. Which One?? We are looking at Nationwide, Trupanion and Petplan. Does anyone have any experiences with any of these. After much research my wife chose Healthy Paws Pet Insurance for our new terrier. We have used it twice so far and has proved to be well worth it for our 2+ year old terrier.

RE: How to add bleach to fresh water tank

The above two responses are good examples of people not carefully reading the original poster's statement! He has no fresh water fill port so cannot use that method.....and his city fill port has a screen in it so he cannot stick any kind of funnel in it. Given his problem, all I can come up with at the moment is for him to fabricate a short hose a couple feet long, screw it onto his city water inlet and then insert a funnel into other end and pour his gallon mixture of bleach solution .....( NOT STRAIGHT BLEACH )! Others have simply poured the gallon of bleach solution into their empty city water hose and then connected to water supply and let the bleach solution get forced in that way.

RE: Laptop battery difference Metal hydride vs Lith ion

Assume you received a Nickel Metal .hydride ( NiMh ) battery.....older technology.....reliable but less capacity than a LiOn battery and perhaps a different charging profile. Personally I'd be a bit perturbed to receive them in place of the OEM Lithium-ion battery.

RE: Privacy Awning Pros, Cons

I see a lot of them in Arizona......they fasten easily to most awning tubes......the zipper is about a foot os so from the top so you unzip them and the remaining foot just rolls up into the awning when its retracted. You do need to stake the bottom down....if there is any wind....and of course remive entirely if serious wind....but they certainly do help to keep sun off the outside living area under an awning...

RE: Danger from charging golf cart inside toy hauler??

We leave out golf cart in Arizona for at least 7 months through Summer Fall. Top them up and disconnect a cable to prevent parasitic draws. Seems to work for us...they remain reasonably charged when we return.

RE: incandescent bulb works correctly LED does not

Since we had a thread on incandescent bulbs and LED. My problem is that the incandescent bulb works correctly, switches on and off just like it is suppose to. The LED is on no matter what position the switch is in, on or off the LED stays lit. LEDs do not light up without power. Either your DC lighting switch is leaking....or something screwy about your DC lighting wiring system.....

RE: Which Oregon Highway?

Sisters is NOT on the Oregon coast. It is located on the east side of the Cascade mountains, about 30 minutes at most from Bend Oregon. A wonderful RV stop to make would be the Bend-Sisters Garden RV Park just a couple miles east of Sisters.

RE: MultiSeal ( Flat-Out ) and TPMS

I have used a similar product in my mower tires. Obviously, I don't have TPMS on my mower, but it gummed up one of the valve stems so badly that I had to replace the valve stem completely as you couldn't get air in or out even with the valve core removed. And yes, it's a nasty mess when it comes time to replace the tire. Thank you! This is the thpe of personal experience comment I was seeking.

RE: MultiSeal ( Flat-Out ) and TPMS

The guys at the tire store will hate you. If these products work as advertised, I probably would not be seeing those guys at the tire store. I am surprised that I have not received any responses from users of these products. I am hoping for more than opinions or anecdotes...... I'm hoping to hear from those with actual experience..... anyone out there?

MultiSeal ( Flat-Out ) and TPMS

Does anyone using MultiSeal in their tires also have TPMS sensors on their tire stems? If so, has the MultiSeal liquid in the tires had any adverse effects on the TPMS sensors?

RE: Factory Solar Question

Please, O please, someone point me to an 80 Watt solar panel that has a specification of 6 Amp output, as posted above. The best mono crystalline 80 Watt panel I can find can only output 4 Amps..... My Zamp 100W monocrystaline panels are only rated at 5.5 Amps.

RE: Questions for RVers with DISH

I thought those portable satellite dishes were powered up the coax by the receiver, which means they are not even on until the receiver is on......??

RE: Factory Solar Question

. An 80 watt panel getting 6 hours of sun should make 30 amps or so of power a day. The vampire draw is probably in the 24 amp/day range or less.. No way an 80 Watt panel will provide 30Ah in a six hour sun day.....even under ideal conditions. Between clouds, sun angle, etc. he will be lucky to get 10 or 12 Ah......which a measly 1 Ah vampire draw will exceed over night.....and I would bet his vampire draw exceeds that. Yes, 160 Watts would probably be minimum he needs.
