RE: DC power

I suspect a bad battery as well. Maybe you can find an electrical person with a meter that can help troubleshoot. How old is your battery or batteries? I would measure the battery voltage right at the posts where the cables are connected. Also verify that the circuit breaker that feeds the converter with 120 V is not tripped Let us know the battery voltage and we can go from there. Also, I might be able to help you over the phone so feel free to give me a call.

RE: Help: DC Power cuts out under load

I highly suspect bad battery causing low battery voltage. If I were you I would measure the battery voltage under load. You may call me if you wish and maybe I can help you over the phone. I am an experienced electrical troubleshooter.

RE: When on inverter power GFCI won't reset

GFCI‘’s trip because of a grounding issue. Please make sure nowhere in your RV that you’re neutral touches the ground. Within the RV Neutrals and grounds must be isolated from each other. You may call me if you wish. I am going to replace the inverter its definitely the culprit. Unfortunately, my electronics deserve a better inverter anyways so they shall receive it haha. I have had a modified sine wave 2000 W inverter for 16 years and everything plays very well with it. Never had any problems. I have been a professional high-tech troubleshooter all my life. I would rather find the real problem rather than throw money and parts without doing a proper diagnosis. I certainly wouldn’t let my doctor t Do such thing. There has been a lot of good suggestions about the grounding aspect. If it was me I would do all those suggestions first. Like I said before you may call me. I can help you over the phone. I’ve done it before with good results. Jerry Parr 602-321-8141 Arizona

RE: 12V heater run straight from solar panel

I have a 12 V 300 W heater in my rally compartment. It draws 25 A so figure yours accordingly. Electric heaters have a very simple formula. Watts Divided by volts equals amps. Did you buy it online? If so, could you share the link? It came with my motorHome. Sorry

RE: Installing an automatic transfer switch

My inverter contains it’s own transfer switch to operate the coach when the pedestal cannot supply power. That being so, My power cord and the generator are wired just like the transfer switch instructions that you have. You may call me if you wish.

RE: GFI tripping when plugging in to charge batteries

I could not disagree more with the above. Your trailer should not trip a GFCI and if you ignore it, you can easily end up with a hot-skin issue and someone could get hurt or worse. The problem is fixable. (Retired EE) X2. Another retired EE

RE: GFI tripping when plugging in to charge batteries

I agree that it needs to be fixed. I would trust a mobile tech before I trusted the dealer. I can help you over the phone if you will call me.

RE: tax writeoffs for full timers who work from road

Whether you have a home on wheels or a stick house the tax consequences would be the same.

RE: Weak Brakes

You might just jack up each wheel apply the brakes and see if you can turn the wheel by hand.

RE: New stereo in motorhome

When mine went out I did a Google search for that very brand and picked up one just like the one that was in there. I can’t remember if it was new or used or recently repaired but it works 100%.

RE: The Coronavirus

Life goes on as normal for me. I figure my risk is about the same no matter where I’m at because we don’t know who’s got it and who doesn’t so I don’t worry about it.

RE: GM said : Hummer EV 1000HP & 11,500 lb. ft. tq. !

I suspect they are using some sort of a servo motor or a hybrid DC motor and they can have maximum torque at zero RPM. Many factory automation machines have those types of motors.
