  1. Easy solar charge controller question

    far from being an expert but seem like what you have would be closer to the maintainer end of the spectrum with about 5.5 amp charging to the battery. that will definately help and keep the batteries up to charge, and my understanging is that the charge controller will prevent over charging. I went with 250 watts still no overcharging and a bit more for the usage during the camping days. so depends on if the sun is up and if 5.5 amp is enough to take care of the amount of draw used on the batterie during the day. Let see what the experts have to say.
  2. Electrical panel wiring question

    on my trailer I have progressive dynamics trailer electrical checker it will not run off the generator, I called the PD and they told me to make a plug with the neutral bonded to the ground and it worked. did not go to the url may be the same answer.
  3. Battery tester

    I have one but it cost more then twice yours, nice to know more info on the one you purchased thanks
  4. Rats crawling into my engne

    last year I finally found were the mice and rats where getting in. They would get in one cabinet where the electrical box is under the refrigerator not the interior space.I had no access behind the electrical box where the drain line and electrical lines exited the trailer. So this year I took out all the drawsers next to the cabinet and and cut out a large hole in the side to get behind the electrical box and I filled it with anti rodent expanding foam. and it was still hard to access. NO MICE this year. BUT this year we had a mouse problem in the house. turned out that the flapper on the dryer was no longer closing all the way and they crawled into the vent of the dryer and chewed a perfect square hole in the vent tubing and entered the house. Replaced the tubing and made a perforated cover for the vent exit. so far so good. My wife can now have a Merry Christmas and to to you all the same.
  5. Rats crawling into my engne

    I leave the hood up all the way, BUT be concerned about strong winds or do something to prevent the hood from getting damaged. On my old 80's dually as I was pulling the trailer down the drive it died looked under the hood with the whole family ready to go camping and found the rats had ate through the wires to the distributer, was able to do a quick fix and take off.
  6. Rats crawling into my engne

    I live in the high desert and I have had mice and nest in my truck that is a daily driver. What I do on my tow vehicle that get used less frequently is that I have to leave the hood up. I AM INTERESTED IN THE LIGHT THEORY THOUGH
  7. Well the two Amp meters are coming by the slow mail from china and when they come I look forward to mounting them. I do appreciate all the knowledgeable people that answered my question.
  8. I do have a 50 amp service and a 50 amp portable surge protector and was going outside to monitor the amps. I want to run 2 heater because the temps were going into the teens. and I would keep checking the progressive surge for amp on what leg. that is when I decided I wanted those reading at the panel that is below the refrigerator to simplify things
  9. I go to a lot of 30 amp. campgrounds and want to monitor the amps to keep them under the 30 amp max of the panel. I am going to put an AMP meter with a inductive coil https://www.ebay.com/itm/AC-Digital-Ammeter-Voltmeter-LCD-Panel-Amp-Volt-Meter-100A-300V-110V-220V-New/182728925264?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=690045695923&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 I order two of them one for L1 and L2 leg of the 120 volt. BUT my question is can you put one induction coil around both L1 and L2 wires to get the total amp draw of the trailer.
  10. Mr. Heater in MH

    I purchased one at a swapmeet in Bishop California it is the single canister one with hi and low and it worked good just a small test time at 7165 feet of the Sierras. not a good test but am following the topic.
  11. Help! We are stuck!

    not familiar with that vehicle but that looks like a fuel pressure regulator to me.
  12. Geezer-assist modification

    tried it works fine but seems to be a form or imgur this was a picture I put in and it came up with the imgur site in the url.
  13. Geezer-assist modification

  14. Fuel Treatment.. Stationary too long...

    I like Sea Foam has done some remarkable things for me at times. not a joke
  15. IT'S A MIRACLE! AC on one EU2000i

    let us know what you come up with, I would go with the board add a box and mount the Cap outside the box. the rest is just wire and connectors from what I see. a lot saved for a little work and they are kind enough to give the mounting dimensions. Then I see this as affordable.
