RE: Amps Draw and Voltage Drop Question

Toast comes first!

RE: Anderson connectors: if too small, is that a bottleneck?

Pretty simple the way I see it. Anderson tells you what size per wire to use, if you're unsure, go up one size. There is no confusion.

RE: What causes soft floors

Bad design and use of interior low cost material.

RE: Need advice on 50 ft cable to portable solar panel

A gauge 10 cable with a length of 15 m, 50ft, has a maximum current of 5 Amps. This is for DC wiring. https://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/amps-wire-gauge-d_730.html This has a user chart you can put in your numbers. https://www.renogy.com/calculators#tab_solar-cable

RE: Aurora activity high -- and not much moon!

It seems like whenever the aurora is forecast, mother nature pulls the clouds over our heads. Cold midwestern winters gave us some awesome light shows.

RE: Newsom signs bill to ban the sell of gas powered generators

Why don't they include those stinking motorcycles. Motorcycles were indeed more fuel-efficient than cars and emitted less of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, but they emitted far more smog-forming hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen, as well as the toxic air pollutant carbon monoxide. For the most recent model year vehicles tested -- from the '00s -- the motorcycle used 28% less fuel than the comparable decade car and emitted 30% fewer carbon dioxide emissions, but it emitted 416% more hydrocarbons, 3,220% more oxides of nitrogen and 8,065% more carbon monoxide.

RE: Which inverter?

I've had one of these for about 10 years now to power the TV and satellite receiver. Simple install and no issues. https://gpelectric.com/products/300-watt-pure-sine-wave-inverter/

RE: High profile tires on off road packages on trailers. hmmm

2. Resembling a stork. In other words, ridiculously large sized tires that make an object look taller. Sometimes related to those of small body parts.

RE: Samsung Galaxy Phone...How to send photos?

If it's like other Androids, go to Pictures, put your finger on the one you want to send. At the bottom it should show "share" with a bunch of options like "message" press message, then go to your contacts and pick the one you want to receive it. You can add text and then send. Hit send.

RE: Australian Truck Campers are dramatically growing

:( Probably, but not any better than the American built quality RVs. ;) Well that definitely wouldn't be hard to beat.

RE: Keystone

What BarabooBob said, I found the similar receptacle on the front corner of my Coleman, a 14 ga wire pair zip tied to the main battery cables. There's no controller. The actual plug was a ridiculous price at the dealer, but you can get them here. You may still have to insert a controller at the batter(ies) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxYGaQX5GSQ

RE: Door Switch?

Fisherman - how do you adjust the time? Turtle n Peeps - what is a BCM? Thanks all. Like one of the others said, I can adjust mine with "setting" function on the radio display. yours may a bit different.

RE: Door Switch?

That switch also turns off the interior lights if it's in the door open mode. Are you sure that maybe you may have adjusted the turn off time. I know on mine, the radio off, interior lights off can be adjusted from 0 to about 2 minutes.

RE: Broke my hitch pin today

Key says "ccp" on one side. and "lb10" in the other side. Seems to indicate that it's a Reese product. It may be a designed product by Reese, but a quick look revealed Country of origin ?China Scroll down to the bottom. Hitch Pin Are you sure the pin actually broke or did the lock fall off and the pin rattled out?

RE: Remote/Built in Genny Question

Great thanks for the help, I'll pass the info on to my son.

RE: Remote/Built in Genny Question

I'm not sure of what importance the converter would be in this. You mean there's a slight delay in getting 12v? No, not so much in getting 12V DC, but stressing the system while the genny is in start up mode or shut down for a couple seconds as the 120 V AC ramps up. As others have noted there may be a "safety built" which will shut down the converter if the voltage is too low.

Remote/Built in Genny Question

When you have a 5th or trailer with a built in genny, is there a very short delay between start up and when you actually get power or does the converter not "kick in" until it gets the full 120V AC. Reason I'm asking is that some genny mfgr's recommend plugging into the genny after it's running and not try to start or stop with the main cord already plugged in. Same idea when adding a remote start to a smaller genny, more or less giving it a load before its fully up to speed. Seems one of my son's friends leaves his plugged in and the converter has decided to let the smoke genie escape. Thanks.

RE: Big Tires pulling Small tires.

When I was a cop, I stopped a guy for speeding. When he went to court, he said he was a rocket scientist (and I think he really was based on where I was a cop) and that my radar clocked his tires which were smaller than his car and the tires were going faster than the car which is larger. The judge at one point, may have been off the record, said in a joking manner that we were doing "radar" all wrong. I replied that is the reason we have stop signs and red lights--so the car can catch up to the tires. Well gotta admit, he tried and lost, but it's a good one.

RE: Load center wiring

What BB TX said, the black, - cable from the battery is also attached to the frame and any items like lights, etc may be grounded to the frame.
