RE: freon charge in a Dometic

I use info published by a different a/c maker. https://www.airxcel.com/docs/default-source/coleman-mach/mach-15/evaluating_ac_performance.pdf?sfvrsn=8f50e6b_5

RE: Ford F150 battery drain when towing Travel Trailer

I've used a cig lighter volt meter to monitor the regulated voltage control's wild swings (modes) in voltage of a GM S-10.

RE: LP gas Regulator... better brands?

can you disconnect a pigtail and determine if gas flows though it?

RE: Solar charging - can it be so?

For me the purpose of a controller is to limit power going to a battery (trailer storage), that and 'sleep' or night mode were it prevents batt drainage. 'Full by noon' means the controller was limiting power before noon and the rest of the day unless you have some other use of the excess power. In active use many things limit power, location, calendar, orientation, temperature, overcast, smog, shade, bird poop, dirt ...

RE: Furnace running requires hookup or engine running?

Battery drops down to 7 or 8 volts fairly quickly, in one night, even when we are trying to not use anything. with 10.5v = dead! :S

RE: Solar

you will be less than 100v VOC input you will be less the 520w of solar for 12v battery (system voltage). 32v is max battery voltage

RE: Solar

The panels are 255w each and the controller is set for 12v. Where does the 24v come from? and does it matter? The '24v' panels with 12v battery suggest the need for MPPT. With a 100v input limit you can hook 2 panels is series or parallel.

RE: Solar

try MS string calculator string calc my attempt with your panels and a MS MPPT 40A calculator results

RE: Wet and dry bulb comfort measurements

I read 88, 92, 95, 76, 89... Am I supposed to see words? I only see multiples of 10 but read 32C and 18C :p

RE: Propane Pigtails

No flow from not screwed in all the way, defective flow limiter or defective back flow. Here is my pigtail attached to cylinder and no regulator, note back flow check at the regulator connection. need volume to hear propane flow. RV pigtail

RE: A/C Condenser Evaporative Cooling Assist

These coolers only work when you have a continued fresh supply of outside air. and big A fan, w tx bbq slamming screen door comes to mind, with roof top evap the front door was screened with a heavy duty spring

RE: A/C Condenser Evaporative Cooling Assist

Your calcium filter work pretty good for you. Which one did you use? Not sure it did much as the misters clogged regularly, cleaned with striped bread twist tie wire or replace w/ new or vinegar soaked, inline calcuim inhibitor for outside misting Calcium inhibitor

RE: A/C Condenser Evaporative Cooling Assist

I decided to not pursue the misting approach partially due to the issues you mentioned as well as mineral buildup on the condenser coils. I would however be interested in any test data you can share with/without misters vs temp. I used 1/2" PVC coupler with brass mister, 24v irrigation valve powered via outside compressor unit, wall mounted thermostat to come on over 90F, inline calcium filter. Final config (Mr. Mister) was PVC on the ground ~12" from unit with 2 misters per 3 sides. Measured rotation of electric meter with mist was 10% longer for one revolution. Misters clogged often, 20+y/o freon unit, replaced that winter. IIRC, 10F drop in exit air temp.

RE: A/C Condenser Evaporative Cooling Assist

The 1A per 5 deg seemed higher than I would have expected but there it was in Airxcel's website. What's the a/c specs show. mine shows 345 more running watts cooling in standard 95F and desert 115F
