Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

good install of the A\C, I think it would take a lot for it to fall out, it sits on a bit of shelf between the inner and outer shell so it takes the grunt of the weight. On a side note , I was at a rv dealer and I notice that they are putting in regular window A|C s in the walls, I guess so much cheaper then roof ones.

How are you making out with your generator? have you got it installed?

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

The labels are a bit blurry, but I think I can read 6v @ 230Ah. Is that right? If so, 4x 6v @ 230Ah batteries equals a 12v @ 460Ah battery bank... Nice. Or are you doing a 24v set up?
I installed a 12v @ 455Ah battery bank and so far, between charges, it has been providing me with days of electricity for running ceiling lights, 12v refrigerator and the drill battery charger. Solar panels will be arriving soon so I won't have to worry about manually charging the batteries.

Hi Jazty,

it definitely going to be a 12v setup. ill take a better photo of the labels for the batteries and put it on here for you guys so you can ready the details easier. i just hope they work out.
