RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Hi, I had the misfortune to run out of fuel twice on my 1987 class c diesel. Why? Mechanical failure of a fuel transfer switch. Was that my fault? I don't think so. However the knuckle heads in this video deliberately sabotaged their trip. Nor did they slow down to increase range. I am surprised nobody commented on this.

RE: Winterizing

Hi, There are thousands of RV's that don't have PEX tubing. 35 psi is adequate to the needs. Why? PEX tubing and valves are rated for 160PSI of water @73F, I use 90 PSI of air which is much gentler and it works just fine.

I do disagree with some of the statements in the link--such as the rare earths in wind turbines. It is quite possible to have a generator without them.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Hi MnGeeks, I believe it was a tear drop? But if it is a pop up then it is just another example of early adopters.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

It looks as if Mex is correct: "Oil soars after Saudi supply shock, stocks slide: Oil prices climbed to four-month highs on Monday and world stocks slid after weekend attacks on crude facilities in Saudi Arabia shut about 5 per cent of the world’s supply and fuelled worries over the impact of an oil shock on economic growth. Tokyo’s Nikkei was closed, but Hong Kong’s Hang Seng lost 0.8 per cent, and the Shanghai Composite dipped slightly. In Europe, London’s FTSE 100, Germany’s DAX and the Paris CAC 40 were down by between 0.1 and 0.6 per cent by about 4:30 a.m. ET. New York futures were down."

thomas201, What frightens me is your figures show huge growth of demand year over year.

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

Hi Mex, I took your advice.

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

One that doesn't use oil. What is a good air compressor to blow out lines?

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Hi, I believe I specified "from the cradle to the grave". That obviously includes mining, and transporting the raw materials. Solar can be used at the local level so there are fewer power lines not more. My "agenda", if I have one, is to lower green house gas emissions. Happily, solar may help to do that while keeping money in my pocket. I was talking about the mining to produce the materials used in solar panels, wind turbines and the considerable power lines required. This is usually not considered by those with an agenda.

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

Since Eastern Canada gets a lot of oil from the middle east, I would expect prices to rise in that area. Current price in Regina, SK works out to about 2.81 usd for a us gallon.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Hi, Solar, cradle to the grave is much less polluting than coal mining, oil drilling, or shale gas. The plants to produce electricity from fossil fuels are extremely energy intensive to build, maintain and operate. Generating electricity is a filthy business, nothing green about it. Don't start with solar and wind, start with the mining to produce the components.

RE: Hard wired surge protector

horsedoc, They use mov technology. Over time there is cumulative damage. The mov's eventually fail and have to be replaced.

RE: Do flooded batteries prefer 10 percent or higher discharge?

Hi Mex, Thanks for two more wisdom gems.

RE: Is flooded equalization charge always timed?

Charge for 168 hours at 13.6. Now set the charging voltage for 14.4 for the future. Darn this charger wont begin charging if no battery is detected.

RE: Do flooded batteries prefer 10 percent or higher discharge?

wopachop, Self discharge in an old aged battery may be 30% per month (less at cold temperatures, more at high temperatures). For a brand spanking new unit that may only be 5%. Each and every time the batteries are cycled there is positive plate shaling. There is no way to reverse that.

RE: This charger/converter + this battery = ?

Hi lenr, That "fame" is 15 minutes every 20 hours. That can be more or less ignored. Don't know if it is true for all AGMs, but Trojan T-105 AGM says do not equalize. I believe that periodic equalization is Progressive Dynamics big claim to fame with the charge wizard. I would choose a converter that allows setting the maximum voltage.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Hi, The simple answer is wrong. The Nissan Leaf makes money, and has since 2014. Are any electric vehicles currently profitable for the manufacturer? Simple answer..... NO.

RE: Hard wired surge protector

I use a patch panel approach to all my power devices. That way in 20 seconds I can wire around them.
