RE: Refrigerator draw on LP mode

Duty cycle is 2:3 or on for 40 minutes each hour. My parasitic loads amount to 35 amp-hours per day. (not including inverter)

RE: Am I making a mistake going with a heavier, thicker bumper?

No one ever ended up with a failure from over building. The stronger the better.

RE: Quiet heater that doesn’t drain batteries ?

Don't forget that you might need to run your furnace to keeps your tanks under the trailer from freezing. (EDIT: I think you mean "don't" instead of "do forget". Replace the return air grill for the furnace with a twindow fan. In my case, that pressurizes the heating ducts and prevents freeze ups. On high fan speed it draws a scant 27 watts.

RE: Quiet heater that doesn’t drain batteries ?

There are many vented heaters that use no power. They cost more. Your money, or your life?

RE: RVing in the winter

Cmccain13, Below 27 F you need to start taking precautions. There is a wonderful thread in the full time forum on Winter camping. My personal 'best' is -34 F.

RE: Quiet heater that doesn’t drain batteries ?

Sjm9911, Many of us will not use unvented combustion heaters. My daughter is a CO survivor. Can you guess what I recommend?

RE: Quiet heater that doesn’t drain batteries ?

RE: Lake Louise trailer park or Icefield parking lot.

The Provincial Campgrounds I have stayed at in that area did not have power.

RE: pure sine wave 1000 watts! but only 500 watts per plug

Latest review says one outlet will deliver 1000W Hi Joe, That's not what the manual suggests.

RE: pure sine wave 1000 watts! but only 500 watts per plug

Here is what the manual says about the coleman. Manual states it is 500W continuous per plug so both plugs together gives you 1000W continuous. Not quite a swindle. BFL13, yes I did get the cdn tire one. It was able to run my induction cooker at 1/3 power (375 watts). It was quite useful when my Magnum caught on fire.

RE: Refridgerator is acting bizarre

Hi, Add a 60 watt light bulb controlled by a thermocube. For the bulb power outlet-->multiple outlet adapter-->thermocube-->female screw in light bulb holder-->60 watt light bulb. for the fridge power outlet-->multiple outlet adapter-->fridge plu See the thread under the full time forum for winter camping.

Hi BFL13, Did yours fry right away--or did it just slowly die?

pure sine wave 1000 watts! but only 500 watts per plug

Hi All, This is certainly a great price! https://www.costco.ca/coleman-1%2c000-w-pure-sine-wave-inverter--.product.100494326.html?fbclid=IwAR2x3u2pEBUhirvddEKBxitcW0B6niodkapNtS08bSDEDumbr0ffwBxaAJw

RE: Quiet heater that doesn’t drain batteries ?

Personally I would never trust any unvented heater, catalytic or not. This. cats can reduce O2 levels much lower than blue flame--but I will NOT use an unvented heater. There are many vented non electric units.

RE: Quiet heater that doesn’t drain batteries ?

there are heaters that use no power and vent through the wall of the RV.

RE: Lake Louise trailer park or Icefield parking lot.

TenOC, If you come in early June you will need your winter woollies. Expect snow and/or rain (and more rain). Fill your fuel to the gills before entering Canada. BC Provincial Campgrounds are wonderful--but do NOT have power. There is a Campground at Sparwood BC that I love (with power, and wifi iirc). The town has a display of the "worlds largest truck". Some areas will NOT have cell phone service. For example from Radium Hot Springs to Lake Louise. It is possible that roads may be closed due to an avalanche (snow) but the highway department is efficient at clearing such blockages. Buy fuel at the town of Crowsnest before you enter B.C. It may save you 30 cents per (US) gallon. The same is true of Lake Louise. There is very little in the way of boondocking locations on or near major highways. In B.C. there are some on logging roads--but I'd not dream of going to most in my class C. Things to see and do in no particular order: https://frankslide.ca/ https://tourismfernie.com/accommodations/camping-rv/mt-fernie-provincial-park https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/voyage-travel/promotion/sources-springs/miette/ https://www.scenic.ca/our-ships/our-space-ships/scenic-jasper---opal---amber https://northernlightswildlife.com/ https://headsmashedin.ca/ This is a World Heritage site. https://www.albertaparks.ca/parks/south/lundbreck-falls-pra/information-facilities/camping/lundbreck-falls/ https://www.hotsprings.ca/radium https://www.chateau-lake-louise.com/dine/afternoon-tea/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moraine_Lake It is a hike to get to the actual lake. There is a good restaurant in the resort area. Try the Monte Cristo sandwich if they still make it. Depending on your time frame (If you come in the fall) https://shuswaptourism.ca/festivals-and-events/adams-river-sockeye-salmon-run/ Towns to visit: Revelstoke Golden Cranbrook These are just a taste of what is on offer. I hope you will love your visit to the North.

RE: Floating vs Storage Voltage Question

BFL13, The best is to have the voltage vary with the temperature of the battery. That feature is available on most good solar charge controllers, and also on high quality inverter/chargers such as Victron.
