I have been told there are other dry camping site on the way to spring creek. if you or anyone else makes it up that way stop by and say hello. jim

    Battery condition?

    I have (2) 6 v 225 ah batteries with 280 watts of panels controlled by a trimetic sc2030 and with the rv 2030 battery monitor. My question is, or better ear yet I am asking for your opinion. i started with a 100% charged batteries which showed 12.8 v without charger on or sun providing any voltage. I started a 7 amp coffee maker and watched the voltage drop to 11.1-11.2 while brewing. After the brew cycle the voltages returned to 12.7v.. The percent of charge started at 100% and dropped to 98 % . I repeated this again with a kurg type coffee brew and again voltage drop was same with another 2% drop in charge left. I am thinking the voltage drop to be excessive.. Your thoughtS. I don't know the history of the batteries. Your thought opinions are appreciated jim

  7. I changed some time ago. Direct became to difficult to deal with. Much happier with Dish . I don't think you will regret the change, much easier to set up and address changes are painless. Find someone with Dish service and have them set you up for reveral ,. You both get $ off your bill for 10 mo and the rates for same service is much cheaper. I save about $40 + a month. If allowed I will give you my account number for the reveral. jim

    Dish EA or WA. Or both.

    I have both mainly because if your in a location where one will not work due to trees, mountains obstruction then the other usually will. Also for me to receive my loacal stations in HD I have to use the EA. Of course I still have to be within the spot beam area to receive local.s I think there are some limits to the WA LNB the further north and eat you may go. Jim
