RE: RV living and registering child for 1st grade.

I saw an area in Texas outside of Austin that allowed RV park address as valid for school enrollment. I wonder if there is a way to find out what other states allow this?

RV living and registering child for 1st grade.

I am wondering if this is possible and if so, how people do this? I am pretty sure I saw kids getting picked up and dropped off by the school bus at our last campground.. If you have a house with no wheels, you’re good. If you’re deemed homeless, you’re good. In between those two, you’re a non-resident and must be rejected! Lol

RE: In Quartzsite, thinking of Montanna.. don’t like mountains..

Now that you mention it, I was skiing in tahoe and saw Truckee. Some non-hospitable hills. Thats where all those people got stuck and ate each other.

In Quartzsite, thinking of Montanna.. don’t like mountains..

Going up California might be fun, but then, are the routes through the mountains fairly flat? Otherwise, it looks like I go back east to New Mexico and turn north towards Denver. Q: What are the flat routes?

RE: Best charge controllers..

Did I see a separate device you can buy that is a desulfator? Thought I saw something. Like it uses bursts of RF energy?

RE: Best charge controllers..

So.. PWM, with its switching the higher voltage on and off extends battery life and removes sulfation, while MPPT does not? MPPT results in shorter battery life? Is there an MPPT charge controller with a boost? Mode? Boost mode is for cleaning off sulfate?

Has anyone experience with either -Victron MPPT 100/30 -Eco-Worthy 40A MPPT Both seem to have impressive built in bluetooth displays. Victron may have a 5 year warranty.

RE: Best charge controllers..

Morningstar: I have used these on my boat for many years. When anything at all went wrong, I call the number, I get transferred to their ENGINEERS, located here in the US. They get my address, a unit gets sent to me in the mail. They want the bad one back, in the engineering department to take apart and figure what went wrong. They have a 5 year warranty and I have found it to be very solid. I have used the single PWM unit and now the Sunsaver Duo that charges two different batteries at the same time.

Please elaborate as I thought there was only one thing to do to batteries.

Best charge controllers..

What are the best charge controllers out there? Mostly looking at Mppt. Reading about some doing flaky things, or not charging properly (bad electrical design).

RE: Rivets.. suitable for the awning

I have some of the tri fold rivets in the form of Olympic rivets and the head diameter is way too small. It would fall through the fixture hole. Molly rivets. I have used these for household jobs. You pound them in and turn the supplied screw to expand the folds. Then remove the screw and use it to mount item.

Rivets.. suitable for the awning

Hi, I need to replace some rivets that secure the awning parts to the side of the RV. The existing rivets look different and stronger than standard pop rivets. Does anyone know what these rivets are? Thanks, gH
