RE: Propane Tank Vacuum Purge

If they use the vent when filling does the air not come out? Worst case the lighter than propane air should come right out the top when first used.

RE: 2011 Thor 33A, With a WF600T inverter

Yes looks to be discontinued. If you want to use the existing remote and everything connect the same I would contact WFCO to see if the 5110R would be compatible. It is rated 1000 watts but assuming your loads are light and the 12v connection has a fuse all the existing connections should work. Need to verify you have the physical space including room for cooling air flow. https://wfcoelectronics.com/product/wf-5110r/

RE: Converter Question

I believe IOTA floats close to 13.7 so it might be a bit high for camping in the heat.

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

I'm with you on this. I was involved with power hungry cement manufacturing. Indeed, one enlightened factory uses cancer-causing wind turbine and energy cost drops down yuge whenever wind is blowing hard between the channels in that California mountain range.I have seen experimental projects that use concentrated solar to roast the materials. Is it the energy that causes the CO2 release or is it the materials release the CO2 when heated?

RE: Geocache of a mysterious nature in Utah

Art is in the eye of the beholder. This seems like low impact to me. Although there seems to be water there so if the place is frequented by visitors it could disrupt a wildlife watering hole.

I wish we had done that with nuclear waste....

I said tesla builds stuff fast.... Yes the Teslas are fast. Have you driven an EV yet? There is a big difference between book smart and actual experience. (sorry the quote is a bit out of context ;) )

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

Back to the actual topic of the Tesla Semi.... Looks like the 500 mile version will be rated at up to 621 miles. YMMV https://electrek.co/2020/11/24/tesla-semi-electric-truck-621-miles-range-elon-musk/

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

So if its the same , why bother?Because there is an incremental improvement in all areas at lower cost.

RE: Geocache of a mysterious nature in Utah

I expect this item to be found soon. I would mount an expedition myself if I had the time.

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

I think he has to atuall perfect something first. His solar roofs catch fire, and some of his cars are rated like dead last for imperfections. He does have a great outlook on stuff. But the cost to make it cheap and affordable is creating a inferior produt. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2019/11/05/tesla-and-walmart-settle-over-solar-rooftop-fires.html you can google for houses also. I can find the car Then you need batteries to hold the power, i know tesla has them in prodution. But what happens when they catch fire, or leak etc. Idk. I would need to resurch the last one more.As if the current system is impervious to attack, produces no waste, no fires and no pollution.

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

How about just hold him to his claim of having a Gigafactory off grid.Is it really about being independent from the grid? I think Elon wants the the entire grid to be zero carbon fuel. Real goal is for the whole grid to be off-grid. I do believe Tesla is ready to implement this as soon as the utilities are ready and land is made available for solar.

RE: Has anyone seen this Monolith?

Seems like minimal impact. Sort of cool project I think. I wonder how long it has been up before it was discovered. Probably get removed eventually just like the bus in AK. Would not want these popping up everywhere but I would be OK to let the one stand as long as it does not cause a hazard or disruption to wildlife.

RE: Do the Weight Police have jurisdiction off road?

.... Just watch the bridge ratings. I am more concerned about the fridge ratings... ...so I can carry more beer.This is a whiskey party. Those with beer can bury them in the snow.

I see no weight issues. Just watch the bridge ratings.

RE: Converter Question

OK post the model number of that electric panel. Usually they are interrelated. Maybe even post a picture. Good time to run out and get a portable battery charger to get you through while you sort this out. You need 5 amps minimum and 10+ amps is better. Put it direct on the house battery. Don't forget the extension cord if needed to reach your outdoor outlet or the pedestal.

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

I remember back when nukes were supposed to produce energy so cheap there would be no reason to meter the usage. Now it is the most expensive to develop and produces waste that has no secure method of storage or treatment. Solar panels collect fusion power just fine. Panels should last as long as the typical design of any power plant of 50 years. Waste of all things is an issue... at least the panels are not radio active. I do hope recycling of all these energy related items improves over time. Worst case it will be a noble try using the best science and technology that we currently have. Bring on the Tesla Semi.

RE: Very Frustrated

First thing I would do is get your voltmeter on the battery. Measure the resting voltage. And yes check both the house and the chassis batteries. Then observe the meter on the chassis battery while DW attempts to start. If it fails use the boost and continue to observe and record. Post the results. Otherwise next time it starts you need to roll to the shop and get it looked at. OPs first post did say they tried a new battery, they were not able to get the correct size but did try what they had bought with no joy. Then they returned the wrong size battery. Battery is ruled out. OP has a 2004, Ford Chassis, which would have 5.4 or 6.8 Modular aluminum engine.. Starter is in a bad place, gets very hot, gets very wet, gets very rusty, solenoid gets very crispy, terminals corrode and snap off.. Solenoid is located on the starter and it takes a beating there.. I HAVE been there with a 2003 Ford truck and a 2006 Ford truck, the starter when it is going south often will intermittently do a no crank a few times or even a yr or so before it totally dies.. This is a common symptom on these engines. OPs RV is within the age to have that starter just fail (lack of miles means nothing to rust and rot), it is giving warning signals that it needs changed. Next time may be at a rest stop or lonely road somewhere instead of at home. OP could try cleaning the solenoid terminal connections but I would bet that at least one will snap off when they try (been there, done that to) but you can't clean the one going into the starter the way it is designed.Yes I agree. In the end if the OP would quickly make the measurements it might show an aptitude to replace the starter. Or as I said... next time it does start get it into the shop. Possibly a couple mild smacks with a hammer direct on the starter may get him rolling.
