I don't understand, let me try?
Your alternators are feeding into your smart charger while the vehicle is running. Do you get a better charge? vs alternator to 7622 then house batteries?

I have three charging systems:

Alternator - Bulk only
Xantrex Truecharge 2 - Bulk and Float (From Shore Power)
Bogart SC30 -Bulk and Float ( From Solar Panels)

So the idea is that the Alternator never truly finishes the battery and leaves you with a capacity deficit that can lead to early battery death of my AGM. So if I have a pretty good charge but not 100%, I can isolate the battery and solar charger with the RBS when cruising and give the house battery a proper charge.

I needed a switch to isolate the battery anyway, so this gives me a little more utility.

Testing out imgur.com. Seems to be working fine and they have a mobile app. Might be my new img host seeing as how photobucket hates the internet and ruined a lot of good threads on this board

Thanks B!

I figured if I stuck with greys and black, I would be OK. Seats are kind of shorter than the stock. Gonna have to put risers under them.

Definitely looking good all around. Those seats look comfy. Keep up the good work, I'm enjoying seeing all the progress.

When your gutter is completely filled up and your awning Z-Bracket won't grab......you chisel it.

Thank you arctic. There's nothing else I could thing of. The gutter was filled all the way up with the sealer. Just no way to get a bite on the flange so...... Chisel. I tried it twice and it slipped both times under not so much force.

I really want the awning to stay on there. The middle and front seem OK with a bit of a lip. But I might chisel them too just for good measure.

I had this experience coming home from the mountains one time. It was really windy and we are coming to this 4 lane overpass and a guy pulling a toy hauler is ahead of me and I said to myself "I am gonna let him go, it's gonna be windy and he's gonna swerve". as soon as he got to the top of the overpass his awning blew off and sent one of the support poles flying through the air like a javeline. I try to listen to the voice of reason in my head. So I want my awning locked down tight.
