    Lewster, My converter went out. I have an appointment at AM Solar in early July to have it replaced. They are suggesting the Progressive Dynamics PD 4655. Simple Question will it fit and is it good choice? I have a 2016 Classic. I stumbled across you profile and it seem you are very knowledgeable. I was also a jewelry designer and manufacture in my career. Thanks I would appreciate your input Robert

    Lewster,
    Sorry to bug you but I am looking to install a solar option on my 2015 27' Eddie Bauer. I live in Illinois and didn't know if you had any suggestions on installers to use?

    Hey Lewster

    You seem like the fridge expert, can I pick your brain? 72' Tradewind with a Dometic RM60
    Needs work, should I fix it and spent money getting it working or cut my losses and just get a new fridge? What would be your go to small fridge of choice?

    Thanks Very Much Dave

    Lewster,

    We had kept our '67 Safari plugged into shore power or TV until we stopped at a motel . Power cord to TV was unplugged. Next morning amp battery capacity was at 25%. The only appliance running was our Isotherm DR 65.

    Our DC system includes 2 12 Volt AGM Lifeline 125 amp hour batteries, Progressive Dynamics 9200 Power Converter (PD9245C) and Tri-Metric Battery Monitor 2030. All of this plus our refrigerator seemed to work hunkey-dorey until we "boon-docked".

    With refrigerator running on only DC power Tri-Metric registers -45 to 55 amps immediately. Plug in the AC and Tri-Metric shows + 70 to 80 amps. I pulled out the refrigerator to measure its amps on DC and it showed about 3 amps, about right for the Danfoss/SeCOP BD35.

    I also discovered that driving back with the power cord connected to the TV, trailer battery capacity remained as low as when first discovered. Should the truck have recharged the trailer batteries?

    What is going on???
