RE: Solar Controller Wiring Mystery

can you hook it back up wrong and test!!! with a pos ground the panel pos and batt pos are common so the panel is shorted with both leads connecting to pos, zero voltage max current (Isc). The batt is connected to 2 neg terminals that the controller switches, if closed would short the battery, try with no over current protection!!!

I let the BMS and CC do their thing.

Wow, what did we ever do before Photoshop? :) That is not Photoshop That is solid modeling design Concept modeling, prototype design the problem with analogies, there are not precise as intended!

RE: Solar panel extension wires

.2 volts drop with 10 amps would be a 2 watt loss in the extension wires which is insignificant. Also as the battery approaches full charge the current drops so the voltage drop steadily decreases. I have the controller at the panel and it is set to AGM mode which produces a max voltage of 14.4V. Measured, it is producing 14.47V at the panel and 14.4V at the battery with a 40’ 8 AWG cable set and 5-6 amps. most DVM are not fast enough to measure the ON/OFF of the CC in absorption. If ya switch a 5A load on and off 1/2 the time the current is still 5A when on and not 2.5A (current drop?). Less sun does = less current = less vd. remote voltage and temp probe are available with some CCs

RE: electrical problems

While electrician was counting breakers for my new panel with added TT30, he added 2 for the TT30! I piped up and show him the 125v markings etal. They see the big ole outlet/plug and assume wrong.

RE: Fridge won't cool below 50F on 120V

Shibre, the parts lists doc shows the 120vAC specs on page 2 RM4223 parts list Measure the temp as directed! taller chimneys work better than shorter. Check the install manual you posted, esp the minimum measurements on the back. Adding a baffle between the upper and lower vents may be need to help the convection move over the upper fins. Lots of folks have added baffling @ https://www.popupportal.com/forums/refrigerators-and-coolers.78/ , directing air to the upper fins and adding a 12v fan can help these fridges as they do not come with them generally in PUs.

RE: mono vs poly real life testing

RE: mono vs poly real life testing

red31, What Vintage465 is saying is that he was ripped off. Panels are often priced below $1 per watt and that has been so for many years now. Exactly, just making light of an ole adage/axiom/maxim!

RE: mono vs poly real life testing

surely I could have done my self better for the $1650.00 I have invested in the 3 panels and the wimpy 30a PWM charger. there is an old saying about get what ya pay for that comes to mind! :B

RE: mono vs poly real life testing

Red, they all rated 100 watts. Poly is supposed to be more efficient. Mono needs three more cells to “make” 100 watts. Test didn’t show more efficiency. then why were the poly 36 cell and mono 33 cell??? the fles was 32 cell! As a pwm user in hot weather, the Vmp is important.

RE: mono vs poly real life testing

I do not understand comparing 36 cell panels to 33 cell panels.

RE: harbor F replacement jack also recalled

here is the entire email! Admin, lock it up like ya did the other HF jack recall!!! For the same reason! previous sticky http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/30085615.cfm To the Harbor Freight Community: I'm writing to apologize. I often reach out to tell you about Harbor Freight's commitment to quality and all the investments we've made to deliver quality tools at the lowest prices. Your trust matters deeply to me and I'm proud of how far we've come. So when we have a product recall, it hurts. A few months ago, we recalled our Pittsburgh 3 ton and 6 ton steel jack stands (SKUs 56371, 61196 and 61197) due to a manufacturer's defect. We asked customers to return them and receive a gift card that could be used to purchase replacement jack stands. I felt terrible about that recall because you should never have a concern about the safety of any of our products. Today, I feel even worse. I'm disappointed and embarrassed because we've identified a welding defect in a small number of the Pittsburgh 3 ton steel jack stands (SKU 56373) that replaced the recalled jack stands. We're now adding these jack stands to our recall. Unfortunately, this defect wasn't discovered during the initial recall investigation. If you own these jack stands or any of the jack stands in our original recall, whether or not you have had an issue with them, please stop using them immediately and bring them back to your local Harbor Freight Store for a full cash refund or store credit (see details here). We have investigated all of our other Pittsburgh 3 ton steel jack stands (SKUs 56371, 56372 and 57308) as well as the Pittsburgh 6 ton steel jack stands (SKUs 56368, 56369 and 56370) and Pittsburgh 12 ton steel jack stands (SKUs 56374 and 56375) and did not find the defect. Although none of these other jack stands are being recalled, if you own any of them and have any concern whatsoever, please bring them back and we'll give you a full cash refund or store credit for those as well. I want to apologize to all of our customers. While we've dramatically grown our team of engineers and inspectors, and intensified our tests and inspections, I assure you that the lessons learned from this will drive further improvement. As the owner and founder of Harbor Freight, I want you to know that we stand behind every product we sell and that safety will always be our top priority. Sincerely, Eric Smidt Owner and Founder Harbor Freight Tools

RE: Trick the WFCO converter into not entering 14.4v?

red31, the OP is using the wfco without a battery. so! A dead battery (after wfco tried 14.4/max) would keep the wfco in bulk for 4 hrs, if no or good battery wfco goes to 13.6v since the load doesn't draw the voltage too low. wfco troubleshooting without a batt = 13.6v

RE: Trick the WFCO converter into not entering 14.4v?

Is there way to keep this converter from going into 14.4 charging mode? The general issue with WFCO is it won't go into 14.4v charging. Is there something happening to make you believe it is doing 14.4v

RE: Mach III plus 13.5 ac fan running backwards?

Wax, tell us how a capacitor is used to create torque in AC motor? In short, a capacitor creates a 2nd phase. Here's a pretty decent page to help explain this. Refer to the capacitor-start and capacitor-run motors: https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/textbook/alternating-current/chpt-13/single-phase-induction-motors/ that's it Capacitor-Start Induction Motor 'The result is that more starting torque is available for heavy loads like air conditioning compressors.'
