Re: Dumb question, are these solar charger result normal?

I just realized I never came back and updated this thread with my findings. I finally (maybe a month ago) decided to have a good long look at all the wiring. I pulled the Zamp solar panel so I could...

Re: Hexomat Floor Mats?

I have some of these in my Honda S2000. These are the only rubber mats I could find that were made/factory cut to fit the car. It is a decent mat. The base rubber (the part you would be left with if...

Re: Thinking of changing Food cabinet

When we had our RB50 built we had them not install the slide out and just make it a cabinet with three adjustable/removable shelves and a swing door. My initial though on the slide out was that it...

Re: Dumb question, are these solar charger result normal?

Thank you both. Your explanations makes sense on why it will be more of a pain to try and eye ball both panels.

Re: is danhard AC louder than roof AC

Yes, my danhard is much louder than a rooftop AC. It is the exterior fans that run when the compressor is on that is loud. It isn't a sound that is so loud it is painfull but the sound carries...

Re: Dumb question, are these solar charger result normal?

I was thinking I should be able to look at both the solar controller panel and monitor panel to get an idea. If the solar panel reads +3 amps and the monitor show -5 amps then I know I have a net -2...

Re: Dumb question, are these solar charger result normal?

Re: Dumb question, are these solar charger result normal?

I can see where the shunt and battery monitor are mounted under my RB 50 bench. The problem is all the wiring coming in is not marked and I can't tell which wires come go back to the solar...

Re: Dumb question, are these solar charger result normal?

The monitor does indeed appear to be measuring amp out correctly and not measuring solar amp in at all. It only appears to be measuring amp in from the 30 amp inlet. I would not be surprised if SMB...

Re: Dumb question, are these solar charger result normal?

The monitor does have a ton of settings. I did sit down with the manual and go through them when I first got the van. I do remember it had a specific setting for Lifeline AGM and a specific setting...

Re: Dumb question, are these solar charger result normal?

Thanks for the response daveb.

So I have the battery monitor that SMB installed. I'm a bit naive of electrical workings, but I believe it uses a shunt for measurement. It has a panel where I can...

Re: Request for suggestions on Austin, TX <-> San Diego, CA

That sounds like a great run. A bit far north for this trip, but I'll have to file that information away for later. I think they need an app for that. A place to keep tip details on all the places...
