RE: Chromebook

I googled 'excel on Chromebook' and got some info. Yeah, I know, nobody wants that answer. I use a thumb drive for my documents, but I don't use the programs you mentioned.

RE: How to go about fixing skylight leak

I had the same problem, and nothing, not Eternabond or Dicor would stop it. What did finally stop it was Heng's Rubber roof coating. It's thin.. more like paint, and gets into places other stuff doesn't. Apply with a paint brush. I never could find the exact spot where it was leaking, but I guessed at one corner where water tended to pool and got lucky. I slathered on the Heng's generously, even up over onto the top of the plastic bubble to where it meets the frame. I do have a few ceiling stains from the leakage, but we did get it stopped. About every 2 years I inspect and recoat it, as any sealant will develop cracks from drying out and vibration.

RE: Costco 100W 18V solar blanket: which controller to use?

I can't find specific specs like with 'normal' solar panels. Open circuit voltage is normally 18v or higher, but when hooked to a load like a battery that voltage comes down. But, I can't say for sure if 18v is open circuit.

RE: battery to inverter wiring

I recommend higher voltage, like at least 24 for high draw stuff, but too late for that. Your inverter manual may specify 4/0 for that load. #2 may be a bit small for the interconnects.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

I assume the trailer needs to be pretty level to work slide without damage.Thanks.. that's one possibility.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

No, I'm not kidding, and nobody's answered. What does unhitching have to do with opening slides? If I get lucky maybe the poster will actually answer.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Yes, I wish I could access our bed and salon without slides. I'm not sure what that has to do with unhitching.

RE: Solar panel ratings

I've never seen that with my system, but congratulations!

Easy toilet fix

I may have mentioned this somewhere else, but I will again. My Dometic 310 toilet was leaking, so I decided to try to replace the seal. I'd done all the cleaning, vinegar.. whatever.. but nothing worked. As per the youtube instructions I tried pushing down on it but it just would not come loose. I stopped after several minutes because I feared it would break and drop into the tank. I wondered if what I did would make a difference, so I put water in it and, lo and behold, it held! Weeks later it's still not leaking a drop. So.. if your toilet leaks and nothing works, just try pushing down on the seal.

RE: HELP: Fridge issues and trip tmw!

I appreciate the help guys! Yes an IR thermometer is not the most accurate but was enough to confirm I have a problem. .I don't know what accuracy these folks are expecting. Did you pull the back and check for leakage in the coils?

RE: Catastrophic Fuse

Since DC travels from - to +, I would think the fuse should be on the battery -

RE: Lifepo4 float setting?

You didn’t mention your stats, but it’s entirely possible with my 400a/hr LFP and 660w of solar - with 400a/hr LFP concurrent with harvest, and 2/3rds duty cycle835w solar, [email protected] li battery. If I ran air with that during the day I may not have much left over for evening use!

RE: Lifepo4 float setting?

Yep, only air con for my 2 2200s. 99% solar. Best investment ever. I can do maybe an hour of air on battery.. that's about it.

RE: Tripping solar panel breaker

So partial shading impacts the total power available more... So I opted for parallel wiring. Am I wrong about that?.Depends on the panel. Bypass diodes allow for shading by shutting down that part of the panel. If no diodes are in the panel, then yes, a series setup will shut it all down. I have 6 panels in series and I don't really notice that much of a degradation of power with partial shade. YMMV
