RE: What is the best way to deal with snail mail?

Not a direct answer to your question, but something that might help. If you still plan on getting mail at home (with someone picking it up, etc) one thing that might be helpful is to subscribe to Informed Delivery through the USPS. While they don't show you what is in the envelope, you can see when you receive a bill or other piece of mail & use the phone to find the amount, letting you pay it on line.

RE: Bay Of Fundy / Nova Scotia

While not in Nova Scotia, Hopewell Rocks is a great place to view the tide change. My Visit to Hopewell Rocks

RE: Bay Of Fundy / Nova Scotia

“Ingonish Beach Campground was awesome.” X2 Have any of you gone up to Meat Cove on Cape Breton? It looks amazing too. Been there, even got the "T" shirt. The campground overlooks the bay - width=640

RE: California Sierras - Yosemite etc - July 2021

If you are willing to stay in Lee Vining & drive in over Tioga Pass (and that is a great way to avoid the crowds) check out some of the campgrounds around June Lake. Everything from Forest Service to Resorts and great for visiting Mono Lake & the Bodie Ghost Town.

RE: AGM and golf carts vs. Lithium Battery Test

A simpler comparison between AGM & lithium at different loads & temperatures performed by Battleborn. Of course Battleborn did the testing, but similar results. Battleborn You Tube AGM to lithium test

RE: All in one solar / shore converter charger

While I prefer to keep my solar controller & converter as separate devices, there are products that combine them. One example is the REDARC TVMSKIT05-NA RedVision & Manager30 Kit. This in now available in a 120V version for the US market, although at over $2000.00, far more expensive than separate devices.

RE: Order placed on Web Site

No bad experiences with other manufacturers, however if you were ordering a Dometic part, there may be long backorders. I waited 6 months for an awning part, and just had an order for a thermostat cancelled because it was discontinued after a 4 month wait. Both cases were charged to my credit card the day of the order. I did get a refund for the thermostat...

RE: Anybody in Quartzsite?

Our gang will be there sometime the week before and during the show. Don't necessarily plan on going thru the crowds in the tent etc. but outside and A-Z are always good for some walking and of course ice cream.Don't forget a bag of kettle corn from Dorthy and Toto's Ice Cream Shop (across from Silly Al's.)

RE: Charging Li-Ions batteries

DAMHIK that Li can't withstand freezing. Where I live, leaving them disconnected may not work.According to Battleborn the considerations for my lithium batteries are: Don't charge under 32°F, don't draw power from them under -4°F, and there is the possibility of damage to the battery case if there are vibrations when temperatures are under -15°F. The BMS prevents the first two conditions from being exceeded. Right now my pair of Battleborn lithium batteries are sitting at 82% with the battery disconnect switch open. They have been there since mid November, dropping .2V over that time. While if I had a full sized RV I probably would have considered SiO2 batteries, in my 21' trailer weight savings is a big consideration. Switching from a pair of 6V lead acid to the pair of 12V lithium almost doubled my capacity & halved the weight. I love being able to still run my microwave with the batteries at 50%...

RE: GFIC tripping

simply plug into a non-gfi circuit. You are not plugged into a gfi circuit when on shore power in a campground. Evidently you have not camped in Trail of Tears State Park, MO. ALL receptacles, 15, 30, and 50 amp are GFCIs. I've stayed in one other Missouri state park that also had GFCIs on all the receptacles - maybe it is all of the state parks... It is worth taking the time to find what is causing the trip & fixing it. Bobbo's description of finding the fault is a good one, although I'd start with checking the adapters first.

RE: SUMMO SPRINGS added...Your Experiences

I had them on my Tacoma Off Road & was pleased with them. I don't need them for my current combination.

RE: Remembrances of vacuum tube days

I remember an interesting part of the shift from tubes to transistors. The radio controlled model airplane receivers were vacuum tube models when I started. Miniature tubes, but still the receivers were pretty big. The president of our model airplane club owned a hearing aid company. He arrived at one meeting with a hand launched glider that he flew around the meeting room that had rudder control. He had his engineers build a transistorized 27Mhz receiver that was about the same size as the rubber band actuator. Impressed the hell out of all of us.

RE: Smallest RV anyone has full timed in?

I know an individual that full times in a Scamp 13 (10' trailer). I do solo in an Escape 21 (18' box) for 6-8 months of the year without problems. Since there are unfortunate folks living full time in their cars, I suspect anything is possible (although maybe not much fun!)

RE: Tow vehicle charging RV batteries

Some have used a DC to DC converter in the trailer charge line to increase the voltage high enough so that charging is better. If you do, be sure to include a way to power the trailer breakaway switch - DC to DC converters are one way devices...

RE: Harbor Freight Predator 3500 Generator On Sale!

I agree with Gdetrailer. I have a small house with a 100 amp service & a 15K stand by generator wirth an automatic whole house transfer switch. Since it runs on natural gas, it produces less than 15K. 50 amp 2 pole breaker on the generator that has never tripped, even running an electric range along with the rest of the house. Longest run was 5 days during an ice storm...
