    12 amps at 120v - which will be 120a when sucked out of the battery at 12v by an inverter.

    watts = volts x amps

    120v x 12a = 1440w

    12v x 120a = 1440w

    When the winch fires up, the voltage of the entire bus will drop. Some power will flow into the bus from the rear batteries, some from the front battery, some from the alternator.

    The rear...

    Just another 12v lead-acid battery with fiberglass fabric between the plates. Pretty much all the same really. No worries.

    Yes, that is what he said:






    The blue line is continuity. Put the tester across the terminals of the solenoid - it won't matter if it is engaged or not - it will read continuity:

    A regular old multimeter will have a single ground (common) plugin, and two different places to plugin the hot. One is for normal readings, the other is for reading amps. So you have to move the hot...

    True, no consensus has emerged - but there was a vote, and the "ability to delete" won the vote.

    That's correct. Continuity runs through the wire from solenoid to Battery A, through Battery A to ground, through ground to Battery B, through Battery B and back to the other side of the solenoid.

    As was said, that will show you the open circuit voltage. No load. The voltage will be lower under load. If there's no load, then there won't be any amps because there is no power flowing (except a...

    The MPPT will load the array down so that it operates at whatever the "Vmp of the moment" is. That gets the most watts out of the array. That's the first advantage of an MPPT controller.

    The panel size doesn't matter, it's the array total that matters. He's talking about having a 400w array. MPPT would be worth it.

    You have to get to 140 to kill the pathogens (if you want to kill the pathogens quickly), but going up to 150 or 160 will also kill the bacteria you need.

    The way it's done is a transfer switch. There are manual and automatic. You run power from inverter and the generator both to the transfer switch, and out from the transfer switch to the AC panel.

    I don't accept that. Even if you only used filtering and not RO, you would get nearly 100% water recovery from recycling. How much water do you lose by filtering? None right?

    But not for a recycling system.
