    Connecting a 300W Inverter

    I was given a 300W inverter and I’m not entirely certain how to wire it up. The DC side has an earth ground terminal that that is bonded to the chassis of the inverter. The AC side has only 2 terminals, no ground. My plan is to use a GFCI receptacle to charge laptops and camera batteries. Does...

    Solar build and I’m a little unsure if I have everything...

    The batteries I purchased have a maximum recommended charging current of 27 amps. I assume all batteries have this. Previously, there was a Blue Sea Automatic Charging Relay that allowed 120 amps of current to pass from the alternator to the battery to charge while the truck was on. Wouldn’t...

    This is one reason why I’m going with 260 ah of battery. Renogy is having a sale right now and I ordered 2-6v AGM batteries. Between the extra ah and having the DC to DC charger I think we’ll be good.

    I’m going to instal a 100 watt and a 160 watt in parallel unless I can convince the wife to take the cargo box off the roof. If so, I’ll be installing 2- 160 watt panels wired in parallel. Thank you for the response.

    We just did almost 6 weeks in version 2.x. Drove across country and I gutted that build in favor for this one. The left side is bunks. The right is storage with a countertop. Straight ahead is more storage and our bed. Today we just about finished it up. This pic is when we were still laying it...

    I was just reading up on this. They would be a FLA vs an AGM then. I’d need to make sure all my parts were good to use with FLA and make sure there’s good ventilation for the, since they’ll be housed under the kids beds. What about ambient air temperature when charging and how fast can they be...

    Lol. No cats, but I did forget to add the dog in there. Let’s call it 4.5. I was wondering if there would be an issue with panels of different sizes.

    What’s the advantage of using 2 gc batteries vs 2 12v batteries? I can’t tell from the link you posted what their ah rating is, but I saw that with Renogy batteries I can squeeze a few extra ah into a 6v system vs a 12v. I’m just not sure if there are other benefits.

    Disclaimer: Longish post about something I know very little about. This will be installed in a FWC Grandby where 4 of us are traveling full time. After some quick calculations I believe my average daily power usage to be about 50ah. This doesn’t include a 20a max draw air compressor that will...

    On Board Air Compressor Installation Questions

    I ordered the 450H. I wanted the ARB twin, but funds don’t really allow it. I’m worried without the tank that it’ll take a long a$$ time to fill the tires back up, but for this trip we’ll have a lot of time on our hands. We’ll see how it goes. It should be here this week and I’ll give it a time...

    On Board Air Compressor Installation Questions

    I’m getting ready to purchase and install a Viair 450c air compressor to the frame of my F-250 to fill tires back up to 70 psi and top off airbags as needed. I’m planning on using uplifter switch in the cab to turn it on and off. If I understand this correctly, I’ll need to run power to my...

    Airbags, Ride Rite or Air Lift 5000

    Ended up getting the Firestone’s. Have about 3 broken hrs into the installation, 2 were just removing the old bumpers. When installed, they don’t look to be perfectly plumb. I jacked up the hitch to droop the suspension to make it fit easier and I’m hoping that’s the issue. Also, I don’t have a...

    Airbags, Ride Rite or Air Lift 5000

    I’m about to grab some airbags for my F-250. It’s a dedicated rig with a Grandby in it FT. Any recommendations on which bag is better? Comparison seems to be that both are good companies with FS being an easier product to instal and possibly slightly better build quality while AL has outstanding...

    FS New 72”x56” Pioneer Rack

    Sorry for the late response. Email must’ve went to spam. I have the HD brackets, but no screws or square nuts for them. Besides that, it’s just the rack.
