It is a NEMA TT-30P to NEMA L14-30. The NEMA TT-30P is a 30 Amp, 3-prong RV male plug. The NEMA L14-30 is a 30 Amp, 125/250 Volt, 4-prong locking female connector and has two hots bridged.

RE: Using RV generator as backup for house?

I use a generator interlock https://www.interlockkit.com/ https://www.geninterlock.com/ it is manual, installed a 30A 240v plug, an adapter ties both lines together with a 30A TT plug witch can use an RV extension cord to 120v generator. This allows me to operate the gas furnace's fan and any 120v circuit that I flip ON. At a later time I can obtain a 240v generator big enough for the air conditioner/dryer/water heater!

RE: Math is Hard-- C Rate ?

CA clearly means charging current as seen in the charging graphs. Capacity is shown in % (% of C), makes graph generic. the math has never been correct since a % of ah is not equal to amps. these folks introduce CA = % of C in amps (charging current) Which means .2C (amps) = .2CA (amps) .2CA = 20% of C (capacity)in amps Nothing new here

RE: Floating vs Storage Voltage Question

JCI in this ole spreadsheet shows 12.9-13.1 float forever! the tab at the bottom "Marine Battery charging" https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1csYoEciHDwUL2wxRO65H3Vj8gGdA8Paiw_Y-HcIvBBE/edit?usp=sharing I've always thought of float as a voltage that neither charges nor discharges, Mex has talked of floating his 31AGM for years that maintains capacity.

Pulling the 3 wire pin on the alternator and it goes into 13.8v default mode, smart charging disabled.

RE: Ford F150 battery drain when towing Travel Trailer

I've used a cig lighter volt meter to monitor the regulated voltage control's wild swings (modes) in voltage of a GM S-10.

RE: LP gas Regulator... better brands?

can you disconnect a pigtail and determine if gas flows though it?

RE: Solar charging - can it be so?

For me the purpose of a controller is to limit power going to a battery (trailer storage), that and 'sleep' or night mode were it prevents batt drainage. 'Full by noon' means the controller was limiting power before noon and the rest of the day unless you have some other use of the excess power. In active use many things limit power, location, calendar, orientation, temperature, overcast, smog, shade, bird poop, dirt ...

RE: Furnace running requires hookup or engine running?

Battery drops down to 7 or 8 volts fairly quickly, in one night, even when we are trying to not use anything. with 10.5v = dead! :S

RE: Solar

you will be less than 100v VOC input you will be less the 520w of solar for 12v battery (system voltage). 32v is max battery voltage

RE: Solar

The panels are 255w each and the controller is set for 12v. Where does the 24v come from? and does it matter? The '24v' panels with 12v battery suggest the need for MPPT. With a 100v input limit you can hook 2 panels is series or parallel.
