RE: 12v to 6v review?

If automotive batteries were sufficient, golf cars, electric forklifts and submarines would have been powered by car batteries. I'll repeat it. A group 27 battery was fitted with GC220 plates. It had 220 CCA and died from acid starvation. Designer: Me. Vendor ABC BATTERY Los Angeles. and remember when it's too hot to park in the sun, roof top solar panels are useless. Ummm, umm, I'll repeat, ummm.. You lost me there. Too hot? I don't think so, solar works in the sun. And, the battery "you" designed failed? That tells me more than I need to know... Let me help you out here. Quote: "when it's too hot to park in the sun, roof top solar panels are useless" :B

RE: checking exterior lights

I could not be bothered to waste my time making a tester box to do a simple and easy one time test of my running lights. For people that like to make gadgets, go for it. :B

RE: checking exterior lights

Easy way to not mess up (shorting ground to 12v) is to use an RV blade type fuse as a jumper between pin 3 and 4.

RE: 12v to 6v review?

No reason to even consider NOT using two 6's. Use two 6's! As stated, you obviously lack research ability as this has been discussed and a search will turn up lots of answers, most all in favor of the 6's. GC batts (any true deep cycle batt), never, never, never Marine batteries unless you are on a boat using one battery for engine and trolling. You could get three 4 volt too. Thank you for your feedback... Interesting how you completely missed answering my question regarding "any real world reviews" and my comments about "I already understand the concept" to respond with spouted data from the 1000's of posts that me and you have both already read. Then took the time to call me out for MY lack of research to a topic that is not only asking for but also named "review" in the subject line. I truly hope in the future you can see the forest for the trees and that someone somewhere out there gives you a nice big warm bear hug to make you feel better. I will look into the 4v battery suggestion... LOL. A post calling you out is not removed, but my post "More sarcasm, just what we need" after you were called out gets deleted. Go figure.

RE: RV travel across Canada during these lockdown times

https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/prs/orders/index.html and scroll down. I am all for restrictions, but there are some rules in that PDF that are beyond ridiculous. Such as: You are prohibited to socialize with friends in your backyard. But you can all meet and socialize down at the tavern. It makes total sense, no different than air travel versus land crossings. The tavern owners & staff are trained and have a LOT to lose if they allow violations or stupidity, drunks in the backyard? ......... Not so much. Sorry, but I disagree. That does not make sense either, that you can fly to a destination, but not allowed to drive across the border to that destination. If that country does not want foreigners in their country why allow air travel.

RE: 12v to 6v review?

Or don't waste your time, since you arent' really into researching it anyway. Pros - everything Cons - Nothing, except you cant pull one to run your trolling motor or jump start your car. Why even bother replying if you can't do it without sarcasm. :S

RE: Rain X on Solar panel

I don't know what the top of solar panels is made of, but it's not glass. RainX is for glass and can damage some plastics. It'll fog headlights for instance. Maybe there's some kind of car wax that might work. I just use a long handled brush/squeegee. To clean mine periodically. Solar panels are covered with tempered glass.

RE: RV travel across Canada during these lockdown times

Well that’s completely over stepping bounds to restrict outdoor, rural activities. Even the lib parts of the US have just recently figured out that masks don’t do squat outdoors. (Or indoors for that fact except to catch the spray from a sneeze or cough) That’s too bad. Feel soorry for you folks up there. Thankfully, the phrases, "Those who trade liberty for safety end up with neither" or "My freedom is much more important than your safety" are rarely heard in Canada. For that, we are truly grateful!

RE: RV travel across Canada during these lockdown times

Yes, Canada is way behind the US in vaccinations. US sits at about 26% fully vaccinated. Canada sits at about 2.5% fully vaccinated.

RE: RV travel across Canada during these lockdown times

I feel sorry for the people that think restrictions do not help to slow this pandemic down, sad state of affairs among some people.

RE: Not a good thing, at all....

And I don’t appreciate the insult. You missed the point of my comment completely. Please elaborate more on this hidden agenda, curious minds would like to know.

RE: Water tanks

Some caution is advised. I've been told the drain plug melts as a last ditch safety feature. Only if the water goes above 275 degrees. :B

RE: Water tanks

You can unscrew the fitting that goes into the tank and use PVC fittings and pipe to extend and place a valve on the end. That is what I did with my tank, extended it to the edge of the trailer frame.

RE: Multimeter Question

Have you tried to just pull the shoreline cord out a tiny bit and touch those lugs? That wouldn't work and would be dangerous if it did... You might be able to buy longer probes or similar - they are typically universal. There are other plug in meters but not sure if for 50Amp plug. The best bet is as everyone has suggested, get a surge protector. Why would that not work?
