Battery issues from RV Daily Issue
« on: January 16, 2019, 09:39:09 PM »
Gday All,
Just thought as there has been quite a few people with battery problems that the article in RV Daily News - a Pat Callinan online mag - may be of interest. Major battery flattening turned out to be inverter incorrectly installed and slowly shorting out.
Cheers

I read that too. An article for the sake of it like most of the crap in that magazine and a highly unlikely occurrence.

It was an interesting article.

The bit I liked most that their solution was seemed to be a complete rewire and upgrade of all components, when all they needed to do was fix the inverter.

I can't really say much though, if money wasn't an issue I would probably do the same  :)

I  must admit I was pretty amazed at how much money they threw at it too WIlliam. No idea what that would cost but it seemed pretty extreme!
And Gumb I reckon there are too many magazines and not enough things write about!
