RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Turtle, here is the rest of the story to the image you posted...really got me interested how it could have crashed into an already turned on it's side truck Was wondering if it was or wasn't in auto pilot moce Tesla Model 3 Drives Straight Into Overturned Truck In What Seems To Be Autopilot Failure . . . . and this one from the opposite angle...brake lights didn't come on from what I can see https://twitter.com/jsin86524368/status/1267305509297758209Why are we still attributing every Tesla wreck to a feature that does not exist? There is no system that transfers driving responsibility away from the driver.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Trusting your numbers.... each car is 4 tones/yr and a launch is 400 tones. A launch would seem to be equivalent to 100 cars/yr vs 87 million. What is the additional multiplier? Sorry, that is actually 400 metric tons of kerosene based on the link below, not actual CO2. I was using two different calculators when doing the total math and typed the wrong thing. "Upon reaching orbit, the world’s heaviest operational rocket will have burned about 400 metric tons of kerosene and emitted more carbon dioxide in a few minutes than an average car would in more than two centuries. That kind of shock to the atmosphere is stoking concerns about the effect that launching into orbit has on Earth, and it’s about to get worse." Can we get to space without damaging the Earth through huge carbon emissions? Of course this also does not take into account the CO2 emitted to slow the rocket as it lands back on earth.I did not see the comparison to vehicles in that article. I think a typical 22mpg car would burn 3,272 pounds of fuel in a year to go 12,000 miles. That is about 1.5 metric Tonnes. So assuming the fuels emit the same CO2 it takes 2,666 cars to burn 4,000 metric tonnes in a year. OK maybe round up to 4,000 vehicles because rocket fuel is worse. I believe Tesla produces over 1,000 cars per day. Would it be better if some other company made and launched rockets? Or should these other companies produce more electric vehicles?

RE: Using batteries alone

Yes you can disconnect the converter and charge the battery direct with any portable charger as a temporary solution even if for a few weeks. If spending money get 5 to 10+ amps for that portable charger.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Sorry Time. I've lost count on the number of delays that Tesla has had. So is it going to be delayed forever? Well not forever but past my lifetime? I can say I have a flying car. And be just like Tusk and say "it's not quite done yet............it's not quite done yet..........it's not quite done yet................." I do remember I ask 2 years ago when the first Semi was going to roll and you said at the end of last year. If you want I can find it and quote it? You keep on moving the goal post just like this guy does. Look at the date of this article. "It's not quite done yet............."I may have posted it but the timeline and delay is from Tesla not me. I always said Semi would likely be delayed similar to the other vehicles when giving my personal opinion. Yes you may not live long enough to see the Roadster 1, Model S, Model X, Solar Roof, PowerWall, Model 3, Model Y but they are here right now for your immediate consumption. Maybe you will make it to see CyberTruck, Semi, and Roadster II. Stay healthy and sharp my friend. I thought the original Semi date was end of 2019 to get a few on the road.... so really the delay has been 6 months so far but could well be 2+ years from the original timeline. The flying car (Space X) actually connected with the space station yesterday... did you miss that too? How is that bankwupt going? Is Elon out of jail yet after the SEC got through with him?

RE: Best AGM batteries

+1 for Lifeline if you want AGM in deep cycle service.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Hell, I'm just wondering where the Semi is?Need to check in more often. Has been delayed for CyberTruck. Not at all surprising right? How is Nikola One coming along? I am not sure which will be first to market... Nikola expects to sell and deliver 12,000 class-8 trucks by 2024

RE: State of charge

I am using a pair of Trojan T105s to power a ARB 50 quart frig, I leave for three days with them fully charged. They don’t seem to be being drawn down much, they started fully charged at 12.86 volts and only went down to 12.68 volts.No harm at this measurement.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

The extra cost would be passed on to the federal government. Not reduce Space-X profit. Reusing the rocket boosters is a first and must save something in emissions vs producing them new for each launch.

RE: Help - Plumming

Is this pex over a barb? Use a hairdryer to soften the pex a bit.

RE: Converter making bad sound

Hard to imagine you would have to remove the oven to get access. Maybe post a picture. Here's a picture. Maybe you can see it lurking way back in there. (I hope my link works.) https://www.dropbox.com/preview/converter.jpg?role=personal Looks like it is behind a password. Need an open link.

Successfully docked with the space station today. First for USA in many years.

RE: State of charge

How accurate is using resting voltage as a indicator of state of charge?Close enough for RV use. I would speculate you are within 5% to 10%. Are you wondering when to start the generator? Or how long to run it?

RE: What's the Latest Solar Tech?

Lithium is now available with internal heaters that should have them working fine in the cold.

RE: Running norcild 1200 off the alternator

I assume "2nd alternator in 7 yr 50k" includes oem and two replacements. That does seem excessive. Only way I know to really check would be to get an ammeter on the alternator to monitor output while in transit. But really I would just let the fridge run on propane.

RE: Arizona and AC

Generally you need to park in the shade and/or add a second A/C unit. I would skip the portable except as a last resort. Although do check the evaporator for ice when it seems to be blowing warm air. If you have a wall thermostat you should see a freeze sensor... make sure it is placed right on the evaporator. These freeze sensors are notorious for being improperly installed or to fall away from the right position. Also check the lower plenum divider is properly positioned and sealed to separate the air in vs air out. This can all be checked by removing the lower trim pieces inside the RV. You should allow the air to run continuous 24/7 in these conditions. It is just a machine, it does not get tired or need a nap.
