RE: Class C rear end sag and banging!

Hi, Next winter I'll be replacing my E450 springs with some from a wrecker--from an F 550. Check the welds on the air bags. Mine gave up the ghost.

RE: We Boost and 5 G?

My understanding is that in rural areas 5G may revert to LTE. If you get a booster, try to find one that uses Mimo (multiple antennas). Using a booster may sometimes slow the data rates down, even if there is an improvement in signal.

RE: Xantrex vs Magnum

Hi, Hybrid does not refer to charging from solar panels. Nor does it mean it is an inverter/charger--but all hybrids would be inverter chargers. I have one of the smaller hybrid Magnums and love it. Hybrid means it's a Charger/Inverter. they are designed to charge the batteries from solar panels or from the electrical grid.

RE: RV Tank Maintenance

No one successfully 100% is able to keep the sensors clean. Even external tank type appear to be unreliable.

RE: Switch to LIFePO4?

Hi Itinerant1, In the manual they say 30 watts for "no load". So that's about 2.34 amps x 24 hours =~ 56 amp-hours. It's good to know that "real life" is better! Hello pianotuna, I'm using the same inverter as you, Magnum 3012. With nothing on except the inverter there will be a fluctuating 2a draw. I just figure that in to having the luxury home off the beaten trail.

RE: Places to stay in BC

Hi, Welcome to the forums! There are a huge number of places to boondock in B.C.!British+Columbia&query=region Many are accessible only by logging roads. Hello. My wife and I are travelling from Victoria BC to Calgary AB. We’d like to boondock in areas that have beautiful lakes & mountains as backgrounds. Does anyone have any specific suggestions? Waiting to hear from you...

RE: Switch to LIFePO4?

Hi Itinerant1, That seems rather high for inverter "overhead". What inverter do you use? I don't turn the inverter off, that by itself 48ah daily.

RE: Dehumidifier ?

Most of us carry an electric heater. The OP, so long as voltage is monitored, can try the heater. I suspect it will work wonderfully.

RE: Dehumidifier ?

It depends on the ambient humidity and outside temperature. It is entirely possible to have a situation where the air in the rv is uncomfortably wet. The solution is to add some heat which basically turns the roof air into a huge dehumidifier.

RE: Dehumidifier ?

Hi, I use a heater which allows the air conditioner to run without the air becoming clammy and damp.

RE: Solar Charging

Hi, I'd suggest the Grape pwm controller from Home Depot. It is fully featured. They make an MPPT model as well.

RE: Solar Charging

Hi, The "load" is used when some one wishes to use a light at night (for example) but wish it to turn on at dusk and perhaps turn off at 1 a.m. Output Load Timer set to 1.00 Don't understand what the Output Load Timer is used for, I expected it to limit the daytime ON hours but the instructions shows the timer working during night time which makes no sense. Anyone familiar with what the timer is used for?

RE: Campspreading

Techwriter, That's why I'd love to have massive solar and camp off the grid whenever possible.

RE: Class C steering stabilizer

I found air tabs helped with trucks pushing and also lowered the noise level inside my class c.

RE: Solar Charging

X2 but it should be a dc rated switch. I recommend a switch between the PV Array and DC/DC to stop charging.

RE: Solar Charging

test voltage when batteries have been at rest for 24 hours @ 77 F.

RE: Disconnect load before stopping generator?

Since MrWizard has the Champion 3400, he does not need to disconnect loads for spin down. The Champion does it for him. The idea that load must be removed prior to starting/stopping a generator seems to fly in the face of AGS systems used to keep an RV cool (for pets, for example) while the owner is not there. doesn't ... think about it the ATS in the RV does not connect the RV to generator until after the the generator has started running, there is NO load on the RV generator until the ATS closes, then the A/C can come onAnd when the generator stops?
