    ^^^

    You guys ever had any issues at all with acid seeping out onto the tops of your CG batteries from vehicle vibrations causing the acid to slosh or mist?

    It's the quality of the light they put out.

    Unless you have other accessories running off the circuit, a 10A fuse is fine (a fridge's draw is usually between 3.5-5 amps when it running).
    Best is to make your connection right at the battery...

    I've had Fox 2.0 resi's on mine for almost two years now. No regrets on the shock purchase, though I think I may want to revalve the rears a bit stiffer (still smacks the bumpstops fairly easily in...

    There's a "range" above & below whatever setting it's set to.

    IIRC, the compressor turns on at 2 above whatever it's set at, and then it shuts off when it reaches 3 below it's setting (and the...

    The SunSaver MPPT is the one I use also. I chose the MPPT route mainly because mine is a portable setup, I wanted the most power I can get from two 85W panels without it being too big & heavy (which...

    With a standard PWM controller such as your SunSaver or the ProStar, power from the panel(s) is simply routed straight through the controller to your battery. This causes the panel(s) to operate at...

    I'm also not sold on AGM batteries for most uses. It's true some AGMs may do a little better under a prolonged extremely high current demand (winching, for example), but for pretty much any other...

    It really sounds to me like your batteries are not getting enough charge (IIRC, the voltage needs to get up to around 12.5 before it turns back on).
    If you're not charging the batteries from your...

    Nice rig :cool:

    That's something I'm gonna need to do with mine here pretty soon is paint... The California desert sun hasn't been so nice to it after almost 25 years. :(

    Yep, still drivin' it. It's been much too fun and practical of a rig to let go. :cool:

    Finding another one shouldn't be all that hard yet (and prices are usually more than reasonable on them).

    I seem to remember those from about 20 years ago (resembled the Firestik, but had four windings and a clear overwrap as you say).

    You said you wanted to hook the positive cable from your isolator to the "new bank of batteries". My answer was in response to that (the only thing that should be hooked to the charge controller is...

    I suspect the SWR at the antenna is probably OK (the meter is dropping to zero or close to it when set to "REF").

    That radio doesn't have a "Low" power setting, does it? (maybe it's set to "Low"?)...

    ^^

    Agreed, the meter should swing up to somewhere around 3-4 watts if both switches are up ("10W" and "PWR").

    Check that the patch cable you're using between the radio and the meter isn't bad.

    You had my curiosity as well, so I downloaded the manual for that radio... I don't seem to be seeing anything in there about it being able to compensate (tune) for a poor SWR, all I see is that it...

    Sounds like it's possible your SWR might be off the charts. Did you try the "REF" or "SWR" (whichever it's labeled) setting anyway? Was the needle just as high or higher than where it was calibrated...

    That's because essentially it's built into the radio, and on a basic level, it takes care of the mic gain automatically. CBs you pretty much just hook them up, turn them on, make sure your antenna is...
