  1. NCEagle: Clearly what are are doing is useful and I too have been concerned about the system being configured for batteries 100% charged 100% of the time . . . not good! Trying to understand how your experience of "disable charging" matches the Xantrex description of this setting. Xantrex documentation seems to describe this parameter disabling the total system to eliminate battery drain (makes sense) , BUT if all of the Oliver AC panel (except microwave) is supplied by the Inverter then the inverter must stay operational. . . . . . Nice to think that future generations of Lithium-
  2. WRINKLE UIPDATE :: (1) We have similar wrinkles when rolling up after full awning extension in hot sun. Hot Sun and dark thin vinyl coated fabric >> wrinkles . . . . Who Knew ??? and so it seems I was wrong about it being an installation tensioning issue. (2) Fabric: The dark brown fairly thin seeming vinyl coated fabric used on our Girard GG750 is nothing like the Sunbrella by Raven Mills that I have been around constantly over many years of sailboat deliveries. I am encouraged to hear about more suitable/heavier fabrics and at some point we may upgrade to end up with a tru
  3. Awning Wrinkles: Suggest contact Girard :: " May I please speak to someone in technical support" No good reason to have such wrinkles . . . . fabric was not pulled tight when installed on/in the roller. To try and understand what's up . . . See excerpt below from pp43 of manual for our Girard GG750 , which is the cheaper of the 2021 Oliver awnings. Note that the fabric on the GG750 is apparently different from the fabric on the fancier model. Different Awning Issue: Our fabric is bagging and because of the water ponding it so far seems nearly unusable in
  4. Elite II #751, Lithium-Solar Setup of Xantrex: XC Pro 3000 ( probably same for 2000 ), - I am using the Xantrex Bluetooth app on iPhone. ( launch app and ?dbl/long press the top Botton 'ESC' till bars under L&R #'s on remote display flash, then iPhone Bluetooth pairs with Xantrex remote >> you are off to the races. ) - Owners Manual: pp71 'SETTINGS' ::: Numbers: 1-14, 20-24, 26-28, 99. ( can be changed either with the remote wall mount display or iPhone Xantrex app ) Of particular Interest me are: ( purpose is to limit the amount power the Xantrex draws from ext
  5. RV unsupported awnings . . . Trying to understand their strengths and weaknesses. . . . and next the proper adjustment. *********************** Elite II #751 - 2020 Girard Awning Model GG750 w/ 3 support arms. Oliver adjusted the angle of the street side awning at factory when we pointed out the angles did not match between street & curb. They decided the street side was the wrong/incorrect one . They ( Jason & assistant ) provided no advice or commentary about what was considered normal/proper. Recently , In a steady drizzle and with trailer level I extended the aw
  6. What am I missing ??? There is: (a) an Active Link to the document that describes the Firmware Update Process. (b) A Dead Link supposedly to the firmware but the link text just reads 'www.xantrex.com'. . . . That was where I was when I sent a query to Xantrex Support and got a slightly-helpful response. I was expecting a link to a page that would show me Firmware revision history and download links to the latest firmware versions. What I got: Hello George, They are there but I do find that it is taking longer to load than I would normally expect. I'm copying the files into th
  7. NEWER Bluetooth Xantrex Controller in our EII. Bluetooth app (iOS & android // we-r-ios) is rather handy/powerful. Allowed me check firmware versions of controller and inverter/charger ........... and to set max charging current to a low enough value that running on long small extension cord is possible w/o excessive voltage drop. Hull#751 , 2021
  8. XANTREX :: There is a very helpful app that talks to the Bluetooth control panel and is avail for IOS and Android. ( We are IOS) The app allows easy monitor and control AND CHECKING FIRMWARE REVISION # !!!! I used the app to check Firmware versions and to set the max charging current. We are living at the end of long extension cord and by dialing down the MAX CHARGE CURRENT using the APP , we easily live without big voltage drops. Voltage as seen by the Progressive Elec Monitor panel the shines ever so BRIGHT RED thru the attic window every night so that when we go to sleep we
  9. GREAT idea, having an option to use the 'space between the hulls' as an HVAC plenum and thereby assuring the TANKAGE/PIPES will not freeze ! . . . . . It is worth mentioning that as long a Oliver continues to take very little or no care to clean the interior spaces, the living beings in the heated space using the air that traveled thru the 'vast dustiness' will potentially be exposed to rather high levels of FG Dust which will end up being 'Breathed/Worn/Eaten'. Next week we will be emptying the trailer and using big air extraction equipment/ducts, HEPA vacuums and attempting to vacuum/b
  10. Statement in title appears in the 2021 & 2020 Owners Manual but NOT in 2019 and not in 2018 Owners Manuals and I would guess not in earlier manuals. Seems to conflict with the following statement which is in the same 2021 and 2020 Owners Manuals. " USE ANTIFREEZE SUITABLE FOR DRINKING WATER SYSTEMS. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH!!! " *********************************************************** In 2018 Manual the following statement appears . . . Note: Always fill the tank with clean drinkable water from a
  11. Still thinking about unused Black Tank: ( EII #751 w/ composting ) Motivated by dreams of extended stays at places with few or no facilities. URINE STORAGE ::: People generate LOTS of urine but 18 gallons of urine storage would last a while . . BLACK KITCHEN WATER STORAGE ::: We are trying to control the quality of the water in grey tank to make it less noxious/intrusive/nasty so as to facilitate disposal into the environment when necessary/possible. The water in kitchen is going into small dishpan in sink where fats/oils are broken down with soap and solids/particulates sett
