RE: Dish Travler 1000 had trouble aiming

If the Winegard control box is not showing an * next the sat number. It is NOT A DISH Satellite problem. If you are looking at signal level on your dish receiver, then do the "Test Installation" under Diagnostics, "DISH 3"

RE: Installing inverter w/charger and transfer switch

I would first - look at the manual for the layout/installation. Then draw in what your coach has as to where you want to connect to. Then sit back and clearly see what you want.

RE: Battle Born Charging

"If using IC I'll set incoming ac from generator so 100a will charge steady almost all the way to 100%, once it gets to 96-98% it will start dropin some current but not a lot" It would be the same constant amps with a 100a PowerMax or any other converter or charger that does constant max rated amps. What you didn't report there is what charging rate that 100 amp is. To do that you need the capacity of your battery bank in AH. With the charging rate you can then compare when Bulk ends in SOC with where it ought to, like that 1C gets you to 65% (or 60 in the other link) What confuses me is the notion that you can pick your capacity by choosing your absorption voltage. A lower Vabs gives you a lower capacity they say. That seems bizarre to me. To me the capacity is what it is and is not adjustable by changing your settings. You can get higher amp acceptance rates by increasing Vabs, but that will then make your Bulk end at a lower SOC by increasing the charging rate. With Li they like a lower Vabs to reduce stress, but that is not the issue here. If you are getting to 99% SOC at constant 100a, then to me that says you are using a low charging rate. The battery bank must be big in AH as its capacity I have similar setup MSH & PT, however I have De-Linked my PT & MSH for charging. MSH CC/CV set for Amps stop at 40 Amps. PT Custom Set for 14.4 VDc Absorption, and 13.1 Float. Absorption is set for time and 12 Hrs. My reason is simple on Shore Power or Generator - MSH Comes on and off based on the Lithium Battery needs. PT, I want it working and Producing Power all day long to power the Coach. The Lithium Batteries will stop accepting a charge when full, however if they are Linked, the PT will STOP producing power until the LB need to be re-charged. I have tested various setting since my First installation. I have continued testing in various condition Dry-Camping and Non Dry Camping.

Did he not say, 12 Vdc with Generator - No 12Vdc when Generator off OR does he mean NO 12Vdc on shore power. So how about the transfer switch

RE: Dish/winegard problem solved

Now, why not explain what stop, and exactly what you meant you bypass the PI. As I recall, you need the PI to supply power to the DBswitch

RE: Solar: Add Anything to Copper Crimps & Tilt Angle for Panels

Me, I finally ran out of real-estate. Will never again climb on roof to tilt. Possible fall due to age. Hate taking those "Smart Pills".

RE: Yamaha Generator question

MSW Vs PSW is the issue.

RE: Upgraded Solar

I use the Plug and Play methode. 1 in 2 connectors or 1 in 4 connectors. No longer need a combiner box. Resettable circuit breakers are located next o solar controller

RE: My generac diesel generator only runs with prime button

If it is a Quiet Pac 75D, No AC voltage from Alternator.

RE: Arizona State Trust Land, Foothills, Yuma, AZ.

The squeaky wheel. The ones who complained were the ONLY ONES who attended the meeting. The ones who used it NEVER WENT TO THE MEETING.

RE: Dish Channels

I am missing CBS and a local (AZ) 3. Well, it is a good thing that you EXPLAINED what you are missing. It is not Dish. you are missing a local channel out of PHOENIX. They are NOT having an issue. So it is whatever you are doing to your Favorites Channel Setup.

RE: Side mirror turn cameras

there are trigger wires for Left, right, reverse. Now can you guess what / where the trigger wires come from ???????? Of course, turn signals and if course the Reverse light. These wires are fed to the camera.

RE: new generator time

You sure that is not just a single phase system. Have not seen one that small with 2 phase. As stated find something close that has good shipping if possible. Husband sez he is sure it's a 2 phase. thanks And I am sure it is NOT 2 phase.
