RE: How cold should the air conditioning get the RV?

Analog meters have their place and work quite well actually. We fought WW2 and went to the moon with analog equipment and slide rule measurements. Digital just makes us lazy, not smarter. Why learn to navigate by the stars when you have GPS? Never underestimate how smart our ancestors were.

RE: 50 AMP Tents

Took a stroll around my loop in a state park campground and observed some strange behaviour. The loop is less than 30% full with a mix of tent sites, 30 AMP and a much smaller selection of 50 AMP sites. 100% of the 50 AMP contained tents. I’ll walk the other loop this weekend to see what happens when the campground is booked nearly solid.So there are no rules of distribution based upon available electricity? All are same price? Either way I don't see why it matters. Of course you could post the park name and location so we could read the rules.

RE: Li recycling 2% old fashioned lead acid 98%

OK so we dig a big hole to get the battery minerals and metals we need and then refill the hole with them when we are done. This almost like mining oil and using it except we vaporize the oil (burn it) and leave that in the atmosphere to breathe forever and cause the earth to warm. Which is worse again? How many actual Tesla batteries have been put in a land fill? Quite frankly I am more concerned about that 2% of lead-acid battery lead.

RE: Max heat to leave propane canisters inside of trailer?

Best to never have these in the enclosed trailer even if legal.

RE: Full Timer's A/C Question

It is just a machine. It does not get tired or need a day of rest.

RE: How cold should the air conditioning get the RV?

Check the plenum divider in the lower section that it is well placed and sealed to separate air in from air out. Access by removing the interior trim. Get a couple a/c thermometer for next trip. Look for ice buildup on the evaporator when testing. Again remove the interior trim. If you see ice check that the freeze sensor is right in the ice. Could have been additional humidity on the last trip.

RE: full time solar, maybe?

am i correct in understanding that in a solar set up, everythin runs off a DC battery(yeah, like there is an AC battery) thru an inverter. and the goal of the solar array is to supply a DC charge to resupply the batteries at a rate, equal to and well above the recharge rate of the batteries, so as to power the required devices while recharging the batteries?basically yes. Consider that for high power systems you are better to design around higher voltage such as 24, 48 for increased efficiency and reasonable sized wires.

RE: More water needed....

"Some areas allow gray water on the ground" I have never been to a campground that permitted gray water to be dumped on the ground but...Even if you are somewhere that it is not outright prohibited, please DONT! It stinks to high heaven and everyone knows it. The garbage scraps in there will attract critters and not in a good way. Come on now folks, a little common sense here pleeeeese! :SPrimary issue I see is the shower. Can we use the outside shower?

RE: Think your're good at backing? Think again.......

Flat paved surface, full visibility, no overhead hazards, cones no trees, no utilities to line up, no slide spacing to get correct, and no coach giving bad signals, give me a break that looks easy.

RE: Lithium-ion and solar panel life cycles?

Follow the manufacturer specifications and you should get 20+ years from both.

RE: Totaled vehicles...sometimes surprising.

I think some is problems after the fact. Doors don’t close right, a/c or some accessory is not right. Maybe paint issues. I’ve never got a car back when fixed and it was same as new. Also seems more is often found once the repairs begin. Once totaled all the escalation risk just stops.

RE: full time solar, maybe?

I have looked at slide trays to mount on the roof. This could give 3 or 4 across when deployed. If you really want air conditioning for extended periods you may need to remove the existing unit to add more panels and go with a more efficient mini split air conditioner. Probably need a large lithium battery too.

RE: Mystery leak.

Do you have a reverse osmosis water filter? I believe RO will put water down the waste pipe. Seems like a lot but maybe it is leaking or uses a lot to fill the reservoir tank.

RE: Back fire and power loss

Backfire through the exhaust is too rich, through the carburetor is too lean. Although if the firing order was messed up or a plug wire was damaged that could be the issue.

RE: Battery Replacement?

Post the model number of the existing converter to get best suggestions. There are more advantages to AGM than just that they are sealed.

RE: Solar fusing question

No fuse needed on the panel side. Nothing will happen if these short. On the battery side you should have a fuse close to the battery and within 18” rated 125% of the controller max.

RE: electrician question: voltage drop at outlet to TT

Dedicated or shared 20 amp circuit? Otherwise tighten all connections at the outlet and main panel and enjoy the cool air.
