Forum Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

    • I’m wondering if you completed the project? I was recommended an acid etching spray on the stainless steel or aluminum followed by a 3M adhesives spray on top of the mat.  I Did not try that and honestly have not had good luck on the actual projects I did try in the long run.
    • And here I thought it was due to dumping Kung Flu patients in nursing homes... Thank you for enlightening  me.
    • Although not an electrician, I was an electronic technician a long time ago.  I’m taking my time on this and looking for a few different systems and designs people have done.  I also have not found a single off the shelf kit I would feel safe putting in my RV for what I plan on doing.   I do like your plan with the generator for the higher loads.  For me, I have a portable generator I will turn on to power high load stuff. Anything special about the batteries?  From what I saw I’m guessing you’ve got a couple of house batteries totaling between 150ah and 200 ah.  The batteries is what I’m spending the next couple of months deciding what I’m going to put in.  That’s the part that will make or brake the system, and the single deep cycle battery I have for the RV won’t power what I need.  
    • My system has worked flawlessly for 5 1/2 years. I have no idea how your RV is wired and I am not an electrician. I disconnected one AC circuit from the RV's 110v service box and power it with my inverter. Every other AC circuit (microwave, AC units, etc.) is as it was and I can power those up with shore power or my 6.5 Kw Onan generator. My inverter is 750 watts and it runs everything I want it to run.  All my solar power goes straight to the house battery bank. I have a trickle charger from my house batteries to the RV's starting battery so my solar power keeps that charged as well. 
    • Slim,   I’m putting together a system for my RV now, and am wondering how yours is holding out. I plan on plugging the inverter directly into the RV power jack.  There will be a contractor relay to shut the internal RV converter that would charge the RV batteries.  Without the contractor relay shutting the converter off, the batteries would try to charge themselves!!  This lets me plug anything into the walls I want, within the limits of the 1000 watt or 1500 watt inverter I will install.  I’ve got all the panels, combiner, wiring, I just need to figure the battery system out.  Even after all that work, I will be able to brew my electric coffe from a one cup pot, with TV, but not at the same time.  Air conditioning will be out of the question.  I’ll be able to run a normal amount of electricity though the day and night, but I can’t turn on any high wattage items.
