RE: Mach 15 a/c not cooling well

Sorry that I wasn't more clear. My coach has a 15k Coleman up front and keeping the front living area at 81 deg. is about the best it can do when the RV is sitting out in the sun with an ambient temp in the 90's. It is not enough cooling power. I have to combine it with the rear AC (which I think is 13.5k), a fan, the bathroom vent fan, and thermal curtains in order to keep the RV habitable.

RE: Mach 15 a/c not cooling well

Under your conditions, 81 deg. actually seems about right for a 15k. What is the temp. of the air coming out of the vents? Open the bedroom door and let the two ACs work together. Turn on the vent fan in the bathroom.

RE: Please....

How does my going somewhere affect you? If your staying home you're safe. Wrong, How do you think all those people in nursing homes die? It affects every body because the infection is spread through chains and webs that can start with you and end up with someone far away that you don't even know. So many people fail to realize that this is a matter of caring for other people that you might spread the virus to which is collective responsibility. They can only think about themselves.

RE: Please....

I think that dispersed camping areas would be pretty safe, and that's where we intend to go. But you still have to buy groceries, get gas and propane, etc. that place you in contact with other people.

RE: heartworm meds in the mountain west

The vets we go to recommend heartworm tablets and we give them to our dog year round. There is some disagreement between different vets as to whether they are needed all year or if they should just be given in the summer. Because of the warming climate, our vet recommends that they take them all year.

Very impressive right from the start. Keep the pictures coming.

RE: MI extended stay at home

Every one just go outside and march together against restrictions, that will slow the spread of the virus and keep people safe. Many fewer people will die.

RE: Load test a bank of 6 AGM house batteries.

If your genset won't crank w/ 6 AGM batteries you may have more than one problem. test the charge as they sit. To load test batteries, I have a set-up with an inverter and a small electric heater. I test the batteries individually. The inverter and heater draw about 13 amps from the battery. I let them run until the battery is down to 50% or 12.06 volts. Then I add up the amp hours and check the result against 50% of the batteries rated capacity. I replace a battery if it falls under 80%. Not a throughly scientific test, but it gives me a good idea of the amp hours a battery will give me during actual camping conditions.

There are several good youtube videos that will help you get it done right.

RE: Passenger side convex tow mirror source

I went with a passenger side camera with a monitor on the dash. I get a great side view and don't have to turn my head so much.

RE: Solar Panel Charge Waveform

OK, I have noticed the same thing with my analog meter. Can you explain to me how the waveform on the oscilloscope shows why the analog meter won't work? (I have three kids who are engineers, so obviously the apples sometimes DO fall far from the tree.)

RE: cold temps/water lines

Are the water lines all inside the camper and accessible by cabinet doors, etc.? That is the design of my HR. On cold nights I turn up the furnace, leave the lower cabinet doors open and run a little electric heater into the water pump/water tank compartment. We have camped comfortably and used the water system in temps well below 20 deg.

RE: CDC and the government may be loosening the lockdown

Put a layer of a HEPA vacuum cleaner bag in the mask you make. Rated to 3 microns. Will give additional protection if you can get a good seal around the face.

RE: What's Opened?

I have read that rural areas don't have the medical resources to take care of outsiders who might contract the virus, so that is why they are closing campgrounds.

RE: Do you know a good mail-order compounding pharmacy?

Not sure where you are. In the Denver area my wife has used both Pencol and Belmar pharmacies and has had no complaints about either one. I believe that they both offer mailing service. She uses them for creams and pills that require special manufacture.

UPS Batteries

Are UPS batteries good for use in RV's? (AGM Batteries designed for use in Uninterrupted Power Systems.) What are the advantages and disadvantages? Thanks for your advice.

RE: Using RV in winter, including water

Also depends on where your water tank and water lines are. If the system is comfortably within the RV, you can open the cabinet doors at night to make sure the heat reaches the pipes. If the water lines run under the floor, you will have a hard time preventing things from freezing during cold weather.

RE: Two Questions in Colorado

I like "best and safest" and also "least stressful and most relaxing." Do you have a time crunch? I would double back to Fort Collins and enjoy the drive up 14. However, Thom definitely is the authority here.
