RE: SiO2 Charging Profile

More usable capacity. Full amps to 90%

RE: Fuel Availability

My thoughts are that some of the smaller stations may stop filling there diesel tanks simply because they don't have the capitol to pay for thousands of gallons at that price. This makes 0 sense in time of rising prices. You buy 10,000 gallons, expecting to sell for $4.00 a gallon. But the price goes up, and you sell that fuel for average price of $5, you have $10,000.00 extra to pay for the next tank full. Dropping price is more likely to hurt a station that pays for fuel up front.Never underestimate the will and resources of a fuel station owner.

RE: SiO2 Charging Profile

Seems fine although not exactly impressed. Seems more limited than what some have previously expressed. Good to know the SiO2 is working for you.

RE: Sumo Springs to replace air bags

I would first attempt to fix the OEM bags. Are they actually Ford bags? Or added as part of the MH build?

RE: Fuel Rants & Raves

If you "leave the country" you're far more likely to see HIGHER fuel prices, not lower.+1 I would not want to visit the places with low fuel cost let alone move there.

RE: Transferring Propane?

A liquid feed from the bottom of the tank is easy. Just attach and open the bleeder valve on the empty cylinder. Same as any propane fill without the pump to make it go faster. Yes wear proper gloves, eye protection and no smoking, sparks or flames within 30'.

RE: how to replace the charger inverter in a four winds

Inverter-charger should charge the AGM just fine with a change of settings. If instead there is a far more common converter-charger it would be best to post the model number. Some are great, some adequate, some miserable. Some just need a plug in controller. No the entire power distribution center does not need to be replaced.

RE: Transferring Propane?

Does it have a fitting on the bottom to get liquid propane?

RE: Trans coolers

I call normal and ordinary. Leave the engineered system in place. Cutting into the lines and adding a bunch of hoses and cooler from Pep Boys just adds additional fail points.

RE: Tires? Balance or Alignment

In an open safe place have a driver and spotter drive next to you while the issue persists. Note if the tires are wobbling side to side or up and down. Check both sides. If nothing is seen trade spots with the spotter. How many miles on the vehicle? Could be a worn ball joint, tie rod or knuckle. In the old days these were inspected as part of an alignment but today they just connect the computer and adjust the toe. Lifting the car may have lodged it from its happy place and it may settle back in after a few hundred miles. Get under the car and try to move things. All should be tight. Observe all linkage and steering gear while a buddy turns the wheel lock to lock and back and forth. Also observe for worn or noisy CV joints if equipped.

RE: SiO2 Batteries and High Amp Draws

Seems to hold voltage about the same as my old set of four GC2. Has charging performance been measured? Such as how fast does the SiO2 get charged and when does it start to taper the current? What is the temperature compensation below freezing?

RE: Question about Furnace Short Cycling..

This issue has come up numerous times in the past. Some members believe that cycling of the heat with the blower running constantly indicates some sort of blockage or defect. I am in the group of those who don't see a problem. My furnace did this 17 years ago when the unit was new and has continued to the present time. My furnace heats up a cold camper pretty quickly so I suspect the furnace was just oversized for the size of the camper and ductwork. The cycling doesn't seem to cause any issues.Yes mine did since new and for ten years before I added 2x 4" additional ducts. Now the burner runs continuous until the thermostat is happy and the whole unit cycles off. Tons more heat too.

RE: Question about Furnace Short Cycling..

RV furnaces have a high limit switch that will cycle the burner. Usually overheat is from lack of air flow. Probably minimal ducting with restrictions due to poor installation.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

The next person I hear using an impact on their stabilizers im throwing their impact in the garbage or in a lake! :B Please use a cordless drill!I have a hand held impact cordless drill. Ryobi. Has 3 settings. Clutch for torque limit on a screw, locked for wood/metal drilling, and impact for drilling in concrete. Never seemed that load actually. Now if you are talking a half-in drive 300+ ft-lb impact only gun to remove wheel lugs those are a bit louder. I have a Craftsman model. I would not bring this heavy tool camping. Yes it is a bit louder but would probably lift the RV off the ground before the noise was noticed. I still prefer the hand crank for the stabilizers and the drill stays at home.

RE: Lance TC - lithium - DC-DC charger question

This stuff has gotten so complicated in the last ten years or so. In the olden days, we just put a 90amp self-resetting marine breaker on the firewall on the line coming back to our 100amp rated Lift Gate Plugs for our charging umbilical between the truck and camper with 4 or 2 gauge wire all the way back and connected to our big banks of batteries.I use the existing system. Works fine. No complications.

RE: Catastrophic Fuse

The fuse was apparently installed at the wrong end of the battery cable. Swap that fuse and cable end to end. The risk is a short to ground at some point along that 5' connection.

RE: Lance TC - lithium - DC-DC charger question

60a fuse is 20% higher than the maximum draw to avoid nuisance disconnect. Still plenty of protection if there is a short. A 30 amp DC-DC charger can easily pull 45 amps if the input voltage is sagging. 10 volts in 14 volts out = 40% more amps needed + efficiency losses. Although #8 would seem to be fine for the input side, #10 for the output. Best to mount the DC-DC charger close to the battery that is charging. No issues with 270 or 240 amp alternator.

RE: how long can one store a gas engined motorhome?

Drive moderately and use up the gas on the way to the destination. No issues. Checking the tires and other equipment should be the routine for every trip.
