RE: Need advice on 50 ft cable to portable solar panel

I don't think you will notice any difference,the way there aimed is far more important for incoming amps/watts... Two 100 watt portable panels laying flat on my truck camper roof.. https://i.imgur.com/uNuJFPg.png height=640 width=340 Minutes later,standing on the roof aimed at the sun.. https://i.imgur.com/hfBSYZl.png height=640 width=340

RE: Lithium cost keep dropping!

If watch that Chin's $359 video I posted the link to,It shows Will drawing down the 100ah Chins battery to zero and 104 amp hours through his tester..He also did one on the Zoom battery with the very same results..104 amp hours to zero/dead dark 30......LOL

RE: Lithium cost keep dropping!

If you look on the back of a Chin's battery,it says made by Enjoybot which is advertised as having cold temp cut off and for $349..Very good price and battery for $349 with ot without cold temp cut off.. I bought one and am very happy with it so far..

RE: Good or bad battery parameters?

I guess it is the first two parameters that I don't understand at 15 and 16 volts compared to: Battleborn suggest the following settings, Over Voltage Disconnect 14.7 V Charging Limit Voltage 14.6 V Over Voltage Reconnect 14.6 V Equalize Charging Voltage shut off or 14.4 V Boost Charging Voltage 14.6 V Float Charging Voltage 13.6 V Boost Reconnect 13.3 V Low Voltage Reconnect 10 Under Voltage Warning Reconnect Voltage 11.5 Under Voltage Warning 11.5 Low Voltage Disconnect 11.0 Discharging Limit Voltage 10.5 Equalize Duration 0 or set as low as possible Boost Duration 180 minutes I have been running my AGM(sealed) off of the solar through the controller and will be using Lifepo4 here shortly and don't want to fry it not knowing much about co0ntroller settings..I have the USER numbers but just can't get them to take yet even though "read" and "set" show successful it changes back to default....LOL

Good or bad battery parameters?

These are the default Renogy Wanderer pre-set numbers..Are any of them harmful to, especially a sealed or Lithium battery as I am having issues trying to get user mode to take..Everytime I "read" and "set" the parameters it does not change but says successful.. https://i.imgur.com/sru2Zs9.jpg height=640 width=440

RE: new topic

Since there portable,I can space them apart so they don't shade each other..There kinda a pain on the roof but harder to steal..lol

RE: new topic

How about portable solar rather than permanent? :B Less panels/more watts...Chase the sun for rewards..LOL Two 100 watt portable panels with one running a compressor refer in refer mode and the other running a compressor refer/freezer(Engel uses less watts than Iceco) in freezer mode..Accessible through top hatch above bed.. https://i.imgur.com/4fzLeQ7.jpg height=640 width=440

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Testing out my portable solar panels on the roof through the escape hatch above the bed for anti-theft temporarily parked..I am very hesitant to drill into my roof for a normal 100 watt solar panel.. https://i.imgur.com/Cozr9J8.jpg height=640 width=440 :B

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

RE: Dometic portable fridge/freezer

Dometic CFX coolers are the Cadillac of portable compressor refer/freezers with all the bells and whistles..Dometic/Engel and ARB are the choices of the overlanders and off grid users that need a tough reliable refer/freezer that doesn't use to much power.. The compressor is the key as well as insulation for them to use less power and last longer..Dometic used to use Danfoss compressors and Engels use a Sawafuji Swing Motor which is made in Japan...Dometic now uses their own VMSO3 compressor which there engineers say there goal is 1 amp hour per hour or 24 amp hours a day.. I have two portable compressor single zone cooler,an Engel and a Iceco 3-1 icooler(Danfoss compressor) that looks like a Yetti with a danfoss compressor..lol..The Engel is by far the better for power usage..I am testing the Danfoss model now.. Enjoy your new Dometic 75DZ and remember,freeze mode uses almost double the power as refer mode..Tons of video's on youtube showing the actual consumption of most compressor fridges..

RE: What is your overall length with TC?

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

I tried an 8k AC in the window but it's too big for my non-slide so I put the tiny 5k unit back in....Less than 40lb so there easy to move around....Redneck City..:B https://i.imgur.com/g3L1fxE.jpg height=640 width=440
