Kudos to Newmar
My project for last night was to test out the electrics for when we dry camp. Temps got down in the 50's so it was a great night to do this. Of course, I didn't sleep too well, getting up several times to monitor things. :-). These glass mats, combined with the LED's really do the trick. I went 10.5 hrs 'till the boss needed her coffee, so I let her plug in while watching the readout. Voltage dropped to 11.6 and still no generator coming on. We ended up doing two cups and now running her hair dryer and we're still at 12.2v! Wow! Never could do that with the other coach.
One thing I gotta run down, though. About 6AM the generator did kick on, telling me the CHASSIS batts were low (12.5). Not sure why they dropped from 13.1 to that level just overnight....nothing on them but phantom loads, I'd think. Wonder if there's another setting for chassis only?
I don't think the floor heat will work on batteries, but the Oasis did come on as designed. I'm amazed to see 4 heating zones in what amounts to a large open box where air can readily flow from location to location. But it appears Newmar did the job very well....extremely happy with their engineering design on this. Now if I can get this black tank issue solved, I'll be ready for some serious boon docking! (Vbg)
