RE: loosing old members

I stole this from someone else somewhere else. “The older I get the older old gets” So keep on posting and camping and having fun.

RE: RV Parks charging for water use?

Individual site water metering is a difficult proposition. Likely only warm winter camps could justify cost, as in colder locations meters would have to placed deep underground or heated. Ala Carte will become the normal for monthlys and seasonal. Site. Power. Water. Wifi basic or streaming. Pay for what you use. Its only right, and fair to savers and to wasters. Totally agree!!

RE: PSW Inverter - No Load Current

After reading some of the recent posts, my next thought was how do the new RV’s (most?) now coming with residential fridges handle it. I guess with a residential fridge RV’s it’s from full service to full service. Not exactly the way I want to travel or camp!

RE: PSW Inverter - No Load Current

The Sunforce PSW 1000w they sold a while ago had two receptacles , but they way it worked was each was rated for 500w so you could not get 1000w plugging in one thing. Many/most other inverters let you get the whole rated amount from one receptacle. On our sunforce 1000 watt inverter I can pull at least 800 watts on the single receptacle. Plugged in a coffee percolated to a kill a watt and brewed a pot of coffee. But I want to do more boondock camping this summer, and we have a small 3.5 cu. ft.? Residential Freezer we take with us, hence the question of standby inverter draw. Multiple inverters is not in my design!

RE: PSW Inverter - No Load Current

This post came at a very opportune time for me, I had the exact same question as the OP. Now I would like to know if the standby current (no load) is additive to the consumed current of a running appliance, I.e. a microwave? Also that standby current could be prohibitive if the inverter is left on 24/7 for a camping weekend to power a small residential freezer or fridge! I presently have a sunforce 1000 watt psw that has a no load draw of just slightly more than 2 amps measured with a trimetric. 2 - 6 volt Costco GC batteries. 300 watts roof mount solar plus 100 watts portable. Victron mppt 100/30 controller. Now shopping for that next inverter.

RE: 90% of the country will be below freezing in the next 5 days

I blame Canada. Nice neighbors but they are a bit cold at times. :) :B That statement made me laugh. Forecast for tonight. -39 C. As an FYI. -40 C equals -40 F. Stay warm out there.

I have two 12 volt batteries so that if one fails I can disconnect it and still be operational. With 2 6s you're out of luck. I’m curious to know how you monitor your batteries? Do you watch them constantly, how do you know if one is failing? Do you separate them if away from the RV for awhile? Because if one starts failiing internally and shorts out it’s taking the other one with it! You would have to be there at the exact moment it was happening to save the other one.:)

RE: Is it cheaper to heat my RV on propane or electric?

Prove it to yourself. Even if electricity was dirt cheap at ten cents a kilowatt hour just your two heaters would mean thirty cents per hour -- ten hours three dollars -- ninety dollars per month. But ten cents per kWh is like the days of the buck and a quarter breakfast special and grocery store Ten For A Dollar chicken pot pies. The actual cost is more like three times that. I remember my aunt in Seattle hooting "We pay three cents per kWh for power!" That was sixty years ago. Your propane furnace probably has 500% more heating power available. What? Electricity at 10 cents a kWh, I pay less than 8 cents a kilowatt all day long. Come on down, oh wait it’s minus 20 centigrade tonight, you might want to reconsider.:B. LOL
