RE: How To Charge 5 Apple Products

What do people do to charge 5 apple products will in your TT? I would like info on both when working off battery power and when I am hooked up to shore power. Picking up new trailer next week and I believe there are 2 USB ports in the trailer. I will have 2 Golf Cart Batteries while in the boonies. I did Google and found some info but I value the opinions of those that have used whatever product, so I look forward to your comments. Thanks Ed Something like one of these? Amazon results from searching - 12V multi USB charger

RE: Can you get a decent browser on Windows XP?

You might try Opera Mini, if you're bent on doing this....but XP is simply very outsated. Another option might be to reformat and install Linux OS instead.

RE: Satelite Internet

I am not aware of any satellite service for Internet that would work well for streaming video..... perhaps some even more expensive commercial services may be available. I suspect your only recourse would be to pre-record a bunch of videos and take them with you.

RE: Dangerous?

A battery under charge vents hydrogen gas. Hydrogen is not really harmful to you in small quantities, although I suppose one could suffocate if the concentration is high. It is, however, extremely flammable/explosive.

RE: Is this what a bidge does?

I cannot know if your external wifi device can do as you want, but I do this all the time with my Pepwave Surf-On-The-Go WiFi device. Pepwave WiFi router

RE: No power from new solar panel

Did you check polarity as 'twodownzero' suggested above? And are you certain you connected the panel to the proper input terminals on your controller?

RE: Solar Panel Mounting Advice Needed

No professional installer I have ever heard of that tried to hit trusses.....just screw into wood substrate. Thousands upon thousands of RVs have it installed this way with no problem. Personally I would rather not screw into roof at all so I installed my panel mounts with 3M VHS doubleside tape.This seems to be the way more and more installers are doing it. I sure agree with the guy who suggested not using the common Z mounts.....they make it very difficult to remove panels ifneed be.

RE: Best low profile A/C

Looks to me like the Mach 8 would do the job for you. ....but check out the new Mach 10. Although it is 10" tall, reports from new owners say it is remarkably more quiet and efficient than the one probably in your RV.

RE: "303" Survey

I know 303 IS good stuff with lots of RV usages but what things have you found it works really great on? Most important, to me, 303 is the ONLY thing major tire manufacturers authorize for tire protection.

RE: solar disconnect switch

I want to install a switch to disconnect my 155w panel from the controller. The regular battery disconnects are so big. Any harm using a small toggle? Or maybe there are smaller disconnects? I looked around amazon and e bay. Seems like im seeing the same 3 products under different names. Why? Trailer is on shore power mostly. No need to float fully charged batteries every single day. I think thats what killed my agm batteries in under 2 years. A proper float charge helps promote long battery life....not shorten it. But if you still want a switch, I'd suggest a nice quality Blue Sea product such as this: Blue Sea 187 series

RE: Understanding solar

He posted 20V at the controller output and 13V at the batteries. If he's measuring the same set of wires on both ends then the wiring is faulty. Miswiring could also produce strange results. I agree! The output of the controller should be wired directly to the batteries. If the OP is seeing 20volts at the solar charger output and normal battery voltage at the batteries, then his wiring is definitely screwed up.

RE: Has anybody here installed solar panels on the roof?

Yeah, my first thought as well. The only thing that I could imaging is screws holding the panels down at highway speeds. Could that be the problem? . Thousands and thousands of RVs are running the highways with screwed down solar panels. I have never heard of one coming off.

RE: Google maps iPad mini vs. iPhone

Works just fine on ipad mini.....absolutely no different than any other ipad. Google Maps....put a pin on one of your points.....then in upper left where it says " your location " click the 3 dots to the right and then choose " choose your locaton on map". Drag your map to the new location and you now have two points for Google to provide directions between.

RE: Internet or Computer Problem

I'd like more info.....and perhaps more samples. What does the Google home page look like? You refer to web pages......but what about email....(assuming you are using a Client for email). Have you done a cold reboot? Do you have a different Browser to try, other than Chrome? Frankly, if you are only using Chrome I would be a bit suspicious of the Chrome browser.....to start with.

RE: ? Quartzsite Auto Parking and/or RV Park Recommendations

As Chum Lee asks, just what is it she expects to ' experience'? The real Quartzsite experience is boon-docking in the desert. Fill your water and propane tanks and Drive about 6 miles south of Quartzsite to the RoadRunner BLM area where you can camp in the desert for up to two weeks for free. Pick out a nice secluded spot and just enjoy the desert.

RE: Class c under 25 feet w/ rear bed slide

The Winnebago Fuse 23T should fit your requirements. Its on the Ford Transit cut-a-way chassis withe nice Turbo Diesel . Drives like a dream and cheaper to operate than similar rigs on the Dodge Sprinter chassis. I have seen a number of used ones offered for sale on the Winnebago Fuse Owners Facebook group.

RE: SERIOUSLY? CW takes DAYS to change my Class C's oil?

I find the quickest and easiest way to get a class C oil change service is at one of the pit stop type places.....Oil Can Henry, Valvoline Quick change, etc.

RE: 20W solar...need controller?

No, a 1amp charge is barely a trickle.....likely won't maintain your batteries in storage unless battery disconnect is on....
