  • New Front Closet Rod
    That looks great. You could probably do pull ups on that bar now! I also liked the cedar lined closet. It looks very nice!
  • Over charge batteries?
    I’ve heard good things about those Costco GC batteries. I think they give you the most bang for your buck.

    I am very happy with my Victron battery monitor. Here is my install video if you want to check it out.
  • Sanitize The Fresh Water System in your RV
    Very interesting stuff. I actually just sanitized my fresh water system with bleach.
  • Over charge batteries?
    as it was already mentioned, there a a lot of different set ups that work for a lot of different styles. If you are looking for suggestions, I’ll share my set up. I believe my set up is relatively cheap, works for extended boondocking, and does not require much input from the user. I would recommend against replacing your OEM charger/converter unless you change batteries to lithium or something like that.

    I use 2 deep cycle 6v batteries in series for a 12v output. I can run for about 3 days on on battery charge.

    I use a Victron battery monitor so I know when to recharge the battery, you will damage them if you discharge past 50%

    I use a small 2000 watt generator to recharge the batteries when I am dry camping. If I am plugged in, the only thing I do is top off the batteries once a month with distilled water.

    Here is a video about my off grid system

  • Rest stop
    I’m glad you caught that before it became a bigger problem.

    On the subject of driving with your propane tanks on, I think the pigtails coming off of the regulator can sense when a large volume of propane is coming out, like with a broken line, and they shut down.
  • Deep Cycle Batteries
    the logic is correct but in reality it’s not that simple. Using the 225ah example, it’s easy to find a 225 ah 6v battery and they are small, light, and cheap enough to work with. A 225 ah 12v battery, if you could find one, would be more expensive, bigger, and heavier.

    Another reason why the 6v batteries are popular is they have a greater capacity to be more deeply discharged and then recover. I believe this is due to the size and thickness of thier lead plates.

    All of the above is just what I have found while researching this and hearing from other people, I am not an expert.

    If you can find a 12v battery set up that gives you more amp hours for less money then that’s great. In my opinion, the 6v batteries give you more bang for your buck.
