RE: Anyone with 12v Air Conditioning Experience?

Have you checked the RVIA electrical codes? I took a pass at trying to understand the relevant industry "codes / standards" and wire gauge x amperage tables, and my debrief WITH LINKS TO THOSE CODES is here. Many codes that are stereotyped as "housing" codes do cover low voltage DC systems, and in fact are what the boating and RV standards build off of! IMHO the boating industry with its ABYC standard is the most comprehensive, mature and utilized standard for low voltage DC systems, not only for boats, but for RVs. The RVIA standard is sparse in comparison, and I've seen multiple comments that utilization of the RVIA standard is voluntary and sparse. IMHO the biggest misunderstandings on various forums are: 1) confusing VOLTAGE DROP tables with THERMAL CURRENT-LIMIT tables and 2) arguing that you only fuse to protect the wire, which means all RVs with 10AWG DC wiring rated at 105C should be fused at 60A. I'm not an expert, but I am putting my work WITH CITATIONS out for critical inspection and feedback. --tg

RE: 18" tire question - ANOTHER UPDATE

Are the Oregun snow cops that ambitious for this actually to be a thing? I care about my and everyone else's safety when going over snowy passes, and that the M+S and SnowPeak ratings are helpful. To date I have pulled 3 vehicles out of snowy ditches in the Oregon Cascades, and none had even M+S rated tires. During extreme snow events, especially on I5's Siskiyou Pass, the snow cops often check because it's typically people without the right tires that cause the passes to close down for a few hours each season.

RE: 18" tire question - ANOTHER UPDATE

While the selection of available 19.5" tires is not as good as consumer sizes, there are a number of "MT+Snowflake" winter rated tires available. You caused me to look again, and finally found a 19.5" tire that is officially rated for snow. Thanks.
