RE: Towing in the snow

Slow and steady. Leave tons of space to stop. Investigate local chain requirements.

RE: Lithium batteries

Thus the if you put a 100 amp load on the pair the 100 amp battery will not provide 50 amps but 33.33333333 and the 200 amp will provided 66.6666666d The current divided PRECISELY according to the capacity of the batteries.This is closer to true for lead-acid due to the high internal resistance. LFP will be initially closer to 50/50, but the truth is even if they are identical 200 amp batteries in parallel the current will not be equal due to variations in the cabling resistance etc. Even the slightest minutia of difference creates an imbalance. One will generally discharge faster initially and as the actual voltage slowly differentiates the batteries will be closer to proportional. The battery that provides proportionally less at the start will provide more toward the finish. Yes one of the batteries will inevitably work harder than the other at less than full cycling. And there are so many more cycles available it could be a decade before it is noticed. For reference I have 2x 600 ah batteries in parallel and it is very common to initially see 60 amps from one and 70 amps from the other running the microwave.

RE: Does have a policy forbidding the discussion of EVs?

I suggest users that cannot behave should be blocked from posting in individual threads where they make trouble. Block for 30 days. Each additional block would double the time. May not be an option. This would apply to all subjects not just EVs. Otherwise would need a EV sub forum in many categories.

RE: SPAM from a new “member”.

I got that one too. What surprised me was there was no way to report a PM - at least one that I could find.Quote the comment with user name and post a new thread. Then send message from the thread.

May as well add this one to the list :R In before the lock ;)

RE: Dometic microwave no START

OP here: guess what? - we bought a spare microwave for $70. Of course, today the built in OTR works! ARGHHHHHHHhhhhhI always say if you carry a spare the original will never break or fail but this is ridiculous. ;)

RE: Towing with lifted truck; need assistance

My three suggestions in no particular order: lower the truck trade the truck get a motorhome

RE: Roadtrek 170 boiling cabin battery

If the voltage is under 14.4 and excessively gassing there is probably a shorted cell in the battery. Time for a replacement battery.

RE: Truck starts on its own

I would open the manual and see if there is a way to disable the remote start.

RE: Headlights Went Out

I assume a bad ground and the power ended up going through the tail light to ground. Hard to know without poking at it.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

After high school I went to college and a guy I knew became a plumber. 4 years later I ran into that guy and he was making more money than me as a plumber. 22 years later he's probably STILL making more money than me.In college we are supposed to learn how to own the plumbing company more than become a plumber. If you are good there will be 25+ plumbers working for you and paying for your kids college.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

Housing prices are adjusting to the new and more realistic interest rates. When there is a housing price drop due to large increase in foreclosures and related bad loans.... that is time to call recession. Right now I don't see it. Don't see it unfolding next year either. Time will tell.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

There is a lot to be learned in college besides the course work. Choosing the right college and paying for it can be complicated. The easy money of going into debt lets many pick a path that is not well suited to their circumstances. Unfortunately personal finance is not a subject that has a strong focus. Parents need to guide these kids better but they often don't know the best either. And things have certainly changed since the old days. My first semester at state university was just under $100 (+books) for the semester. The state has curtailed the subsidies and that burden is now on the students. The student loans back then were zero interest until graduation.

RE: Can you name that sound (squeaking)?

Sounds more like drum brakes than disks. What is in the rear? My guess is the parking brake does not get used enough. Or maybe too much and the shoes are shot. Can you try lightly applying the parking brake while driving? See if the pitch changes. Disk wear indicators would change pitch as the service brakes were applied.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

I'm just sitting here waiting to capitalize on the upcoming recession...I am currently capitalizing on the continued growth in the economy. Best of luck for the long wait for a mild recession.

RE: Safety: Microwave Fire!

I wanted to run all the appliances in the RV to test my 30 amp outlet. I wanted to see if the new installed 30 amp would handle all the RV loads w/o tripping the breaker. Not sure what is in your TC but my 30 amp trailer will pop the breaker every single time if running everything. Never mind the hair drier and/or electric space heater. Glass of water 2/3rds full works for anything to do with testing a microwave. No towel needed.
