RE: WEN inverter generators on woot.com today only

There is decent stuff made in China, along with the drek. It's a matter of the spec they are required to build to..It is, or was, my understanding that it's just the final assembly that happens in China. The design and specs come from here, or in Honda's case, Japan, which is more important than simply putting the parts together. They MFG the parts they are assembling Like said China will MFG to the specs requested If the seller wants a better quality product He can have it

RE: 12 volt problems

Find your converter aka 120 to 14v charger Bad batteries might have blown the fuses or tripped the circuit breaker, check your 120v circuit breakers The breaker for the converter might be tripped Also up front under the hatch Look for the BCC aka battery control center Black box approx 6" by 10" lots of wires going in Cover pops off Has relays and dc circuit breakers and fuses Might have tripped the charge breaker Assuming you have 12v power inside the RV From the charged batteries for the things that need it It should be one of the things i listed

RE: Ford Starting /House Charging Question

Can't burn the points But you can drain the battery, by having power to circuits that would otherwise be turned off

RE: Ford Starting /House Charging Question UPDATE Test

Ford start relay has NOTHING TO DO WITH battery charging Chassis or house In your case, The charge relay is only wired to the "run" side of the ignition, and only active when the key is in the run position, it might even be tied to the fuel pump relay circuit and only active with engine running On the start mode of the ignition it does not engage/activate Or you would not have needed to use that long jumper cables

RE: 12 v to 12 v trickle charger

The one i posted was simply an example Posted because it showed the size dimensions And i assume his system DC is more than a Flat 12v which is only 50% SOC Between solar and alternator power when driving or shore power when parked, there should be no problem with a proper input voltage that is high enough, being available to drive the DC converter

RE: Need help replacing charging circuit solenoid.

Blf Where is the charge solenoid You don't need long jumper cables You just need to jump the heavy terminals together on the solenoid To connect the two systems I have done it numerous times on other RVs For people that didn't know You are right. I'll see if that works. It is a long run of #10 from the solenoid/starter to the house though. Solenoid is up front with the engine battery. With #10 wire i would connect the terminals and wait a few minutes before hitting the start switch Let it transfer a few amps forward to the weak chassis battery and mitigate the surge and the voltage drop from the house battery

RE: Need help replacing charging circuit solenoid.

What did I miss? Charge/jump start relay, should not keep alternator from powering vehicle, standard dash gauge is for vehicle battery Sounds like dirty connections for battery cable and stater cable etc.. At the relay
