Re: Do you drive with your fridge on propane?

Mine doesn't have a propane input. Only AC or DC. It's an Engel. And I love it! Backs up swell as a freezer too as needed. One-hundred-ninety watts of solar power to a deep cycle Walmart battery will...

Re: SOLAR Flexible Roof Panel 124 watt UniSolar

I agree with Mike (as I usually do). It takes 2 by 4 solid feet of monocrystal panels to make up 90 watts for me. I have two which keep the Engel 'fridge happy 24/7 and also allow a little 120 volt...

Re: roadtrek cable connection

Re: New Mexico, 7500' plus elevations

You make me love my 16 year old GMC van with its injection gasoline engine all the more. The higher I get it, the better its mileage becomes with no observable change in power. On a trip to New...

Re: house batteries not charging completely from vehicle battery

A slow cooker powered from an Inverter and batteries is going to draw an awful lot more current than you suspect. Roughly 10 times that of a 120 volt one on 120 volts.

Re: Fire from overfilled propane tank, need advice.

Sounds like too many things you don't have experince with and that could be safety issues. I'd pay for having it done right and chalk it up to learning what to watch for next time.

Re: Selling the C - mixed emotions

Priced appropriately, I think. I bought a similarly used Class C many years back for almost that amount. It was a Fleetwood 29 footer. Problem is likely going to be finding folks who can get...

Fuel economy is a matter of chemistry, physics and, most ammendable, skill. Work as hard on situational awareness, route, efficient trips (most stops per usage), mountain and curve driving and smooth...

Re: new to this

One thousand watts is too close in output to your various power draws. I believe you'd need at least the eu2000i (which I've had for almost 10 years and it runs flawlessly as well as quietly). New...
