RE: To buy a generator or not...

Good plan. Sell the Onan and pocket the savings from not buying the Honda 2200 and see where you are at.

RE: RV Hot Skin (Exterior electrification)

But obviously you have never dealt with old homes or apartments in Cities..You may have underestimated me.

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

The V3 will make a bigger difference on the CT with larger battery. This is why I did not get the L3 connector on my original LEAF back in 2011... battery was too small to make enough difference. And besides very few L3 stations back then. I wonder if the V3 might be used on the Semi for overnight charging instead of the mega-charger.

RE: RV Hot Skin (Exterior electrification)

As you please. I would rip it all out. After 100 years if you can't renovate this stuff it might be time to sell the house and get something updated. I stand with your brother on this.

RE: RV Hot Skin (Exterior electrification)

Some grandfathered items are still worth updating. The electricity does not care about an exemption... it will still bite just as hard.

Let me help you out here. Quote: "when it's too hot to park in the sun, roof top solar panels are useless" :BIf the roof is getting sun.... you don't have enough solar panels.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

However, citing limited battery cell availability and ongoing supply chain challenges, Tesla said Monday it has shifted its Semi truck launch to 2022. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/tesla-reports-q2-earnings-results-2021-155131596.html

RE: Battery electric has competition

Retail price to fill a hydrogen vehicle is $12 to $15 per gallon equivalent. Electricity is often half the cost of gasoline per mile. That is a long road to be cost effective.

RE: RV Hot Skin (Exterior electrification)

If the utility cord is a two-wire, this would be a great time to replace that too.

RE: To buy a generator or not...

I would not even consider a second gasoline generator if you have an on-board generator. Adjust the bedtime, carry more propane, hookups only in the heat, ditch the on-board.

RE: RV Hot Skin (Exterior electrification)

It is plugged in now so dont want to take it apart just yet, but best I remember is it did look factory, not just wires going in odd places, the neutral looked like it was factory made to be grounded where it was, but I cant say for sure that it was not just grounded to the ground bar. Nonetheless, would it be wise to unground it? That would mean the neutral is only connected to the neutral of the extension cord, not the ground of the panel that connects to the ground of the extension cord. I can do electrical just fine, but am not an electrician that knows the codes.Yes the neutral bus and ground bus in an RV should be separated. RV panel is a sub-panel. Neutral-ground bond should only be made at the main power source panel supplied by the utility transformer.

RE: Breaks and 12V system

Consider adding a voltmeter if the indicator is inadequate. This will give fair warning long before you lose power depending a hill or anything else.

RE: TS-30 transfer switch failure.

Unplug and open the transfer switch box. Use two LARGE wire nuts and connect the cord input to the output. Hot to Hot, Neutral to Neutral, ground should already be connected straight through. This will remove the generator.

RE: TS-30 transfer switch failure.

This question is two-fold. My TS-30 transfer switch failed in my 1986 Beaver Marquis and need to know if I can replace it with an ATS-301 switch and if not can I bypass the switch altogether.YES on the ATS-301 YES on the bypass.

How about a production street legal Mach E? Not so much.

RE: Breaks and 12V system

Was there no warning light or gauge to indicate low voltage? Usually voltage will creep down from 13, 12, 11, 10 volts over a few hours if the alternator is failed. Something should indicate this condition allowing you to start the generator etc and avoid the issue.

RE: 2013 Ecoboost overheating

The thermostat would not know if you had a trailer or not.Some fail to open 100%. Towing can make a difference. For the OP... if you can tell if the engine takes longer to warm up it could be indicating thermostat is stuck partially open. Getting harder to tell with the dampened gauges and the warm summer.

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

Yes you can find some issues if you go looking for them. You can find even more boring success stories too but they don't make for exciting print. https://electrek.co/2020/06/30/tesla-model-3-police-cars-faster-roi-police-chief/ One thing I'm not sure of for police use is idle time sitting on the roadside running heat or AC. Either watching traffic, surveillance, or completing paperwork there is a lot of time spent in the vehicle, if the car is driven maybe 50% of the shift, and just sitting with the climate control running, will a single charge cover a full shift?This is so different from gasoline it is hard to get a handle on it. The climate control uses very little power when you are not idling a 400 hp gas engine to drive 5 hp of accessories. I believe it stated they run two shifts between charges and a depleted battery has never been an issue.

RE: Electric only TT

The bonus would be a compressor refrigerator !As opposed to an icebox? Yes that compressor would be a bonus. I would assume electric only is just to hop from pedestal to pedestal.
