Todays project, I installed a pair of lug-ended cables to my 12v marine battery pos and neg posts, then bought a high output charger to attach to them. The battery charging circuit built into the Progressive Dynamics converter in my TT only puts out a few amps, and it take many hours just to get the batteries to 90% charge. My new charger gives you the option of starting out at 40, 20, or 2 amps. And it's a smart charger, so it gradually drops down the amperage as the battery charges. I hooked it up today, and the pair of batteries were fully charged in about 3 hours. My TT converter rarely gave my batteries a full charge.

I might find that I don't need the new T-105 batteries after all.

Tomorrow, I plan to crawl under the TT one more time and clean up the DC ground connections to the frame. They may be making good contact, but I want to be sure.

Bill

I went out and took a nice long nap in it. The afternoon sun had warmed it up nice inside. No phones, tv`s computers to bother me....

That's the spirit, Crabman ! Those ol' crabs can wait another day - maybe they'll get a little bigger while you're napping.

Today, checked the ground to frame connections, and bought and installed a pair of new Trojan T-105 batteries. I am very tired right now.

My left side kitchen sink has been slow to drain from day one, but it had finally become almost totally plugged. Soooooo, I just put a shallow throw away aluminum lasagna type pan under the sink plumbing and removed everything. I found the plug in the crossover pipe from the left to ride side sink. A quick shot outside with the garden hose and it wall all cleaned out. It all went back together in a snap.

I'm not sure what the plug started out to be, but I suspect some type of crud from manufacture that ended up in the sink. I should have cleaned this out two years ago, but we all know how that goes.

I removed old calck from a bunch of seams and corners using my rotery tool and a small wire brush.
Then re calked using some high speed silicone ( high speed as in good not fast )

All I did today was pull my TT from the La Posa South LTVA south of Quartzsite down to the Imperial Dam LTVA near Yuma. Got it all set up, went for a bicycle ride, and now eating some Top Ramen (with a bunch of added herbs and spices) for my dinner.
