RE: GM HD Trucks Many with AWD instead of 4WD

If it applies the brakes to any wheel to transfer the torque then it is weak and is for moderate conditions at best. JMHO I have TrueTrac limited slip front and rear along with the locked low range as needed. Works great for what I need.

RE: Paid Caravans to Alaska Worth it?

I can see a caravan for traveling through Alaska, some roads get pretty rough, and having buddies along in case of a breakdown is a plus, but $10,000? That seems pretty steep. Buddies? I mean, yeah I'll help someone if they breakdown, but having a pack of people who are afraid of the dark and me being the only guy with air tools, I'm not spending my $10k to fix people's RVs fr a month!Yea I can hear the uproar now when you tell the repair can be done in 45 minutes for $200 or the whole caravan can wait for 6 hours for mobile service.

RE: Switching from 12 volt to 6 volt batteries

+1 for just a voltmeter. That monitor money can be spent on more battery capacity or solar charging to make life off-grid easier.

RE: Switching from 12 volt to 6 volt batteries

These fridges make charging voltage and capacity critical during off-grid camping. These features are really designed to be used when you have utility power. Think four batteries, new converter and 500+ watts solar.

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

300 for us is good, 400 is long, 500 is about max. Either way I like to leave early enough to be in camp for dinner. Breakfast and lunch on the road is fine.

RE: trailer bearings leak - castle nut stuck (why?)

Put your impact gun on it and move along with your day.

What are your thoughts?Get the proper drivetrain based upon your needs. Do some research to know exactly what the options include.

RE: Leaving antifreeze in all summer

OK to just blow the anti freeze out with air.

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

OK now I read when Elon was fined $20M by the SEC that Elon had Tesla issue new shares that Elon bought for $20M to cover the fine imposed on Tesla. For all that pain Elon has now made $50M+ on the increased stock price. I still think SEC should apologize and return those fines.

RE: need help with electrical

quick question... the trailer batteries were charging while driving.. I'm not sure how it could charge while driving, but not while plugged into 110? Does the 12 volt from the tow vehicle not go through the converter before charging the batteries?Not through the converter. Alternator power is 12v DC and goes direct to the RV battery to give some charge same as your vehicle battery.

RE: Constant Convertor?

Could be a WFCO stuck in boost mode. BTDT. Check your battery voltage.

Had to get these short shorts out for those always short on Tesla. https://shop.tesla.com/product/tesla-short-shorts?sku=8529140-00-A Sorry.... all sold out, same as the rest of the vehicle production.

RE: I need new Tires

The big problem is finding a 15" trailer wheel that up to 110 psi and carry 3500 lbs. Highest 15" I know is Tow-Master SS TD15225F 95 psi and 3150 load rating. Otherwise I like my GY Endurance.

RE: Stay on your own side....

I'm super confused?? What happen to all of the open border people? I thought all borders were bad and evil? Maybe that left in 2015? Or maybe that was just coming into the US? So there're good now? I'm behind times and I need to catch up on this stuff! ;) Are you still trusting this expert? Epidemiologist

RE: Charge across 2 6V batteries is 11.78. Is that right?

Oh MEX smart chargers are not for daily charging for long term service. Smart chargers are just to get your car started when you leave the lights or radio on too long. Then the normal charging system takes over.

RE: breaker keeps blowing

The extension cord I used was very heavy duty.S/B #10 wire minimum.

RE: breaker keeps blowing

Yes a 30 amp RV will have limits. If running the air conditioner I recommend setting the water heater and fridge to propane only. The two small fridges probably are a small draw but start up surge each time it cycles on can be significant. Don't run your heater and air conditioner at the same time. Probably can't. Furnace runs on 12 volt power and propane. The converter will supply plenty of 12v power when plugged in. Off grid the furnace 12v draw on the battery can be significant. No reason your 12 volt battery should get low when you are plugged in. Some have a storage switch that must be in the "on" or "in-use" position or you will not get power to the battery for charging. Yes the converter can draw significant 120 volt power if charging a low battery. At 1 or 2 hours the battery will generally be charged enough that the converter will be operating at minimal power.

RE: 30amp Y Splitter for 2 RV's

Thanks all. You helped confirmed what I thought. The 30amp on the barn is great for my travel trailer, but looks like we will have to borrow or buy a gennie for the second one this weekend. Better safe than sorry. Happy camping.I would give it a go as is before spending money on a generator. Possibly even pull a temporary second 30 amp circuit. If the conduit has space you just need to pull one hot for 30 amp split phase to feed both RVs with full power.

RE: 30amp Y Splitter for 2 RV's

Have not used one. However for best results running two air conditioners set the water and fridge on propane for both RVs. No microwave, hair drier or coffee pot if the air is running.
