    Re: Richtersveld Entrance and Exit points

    Timewise, I don't think you would have an issue making it from Port Nolloth to De Hoop.

    Best route out from Gannakouriep will be via the Helskloof pass, which comes out at the Helskloof gate. If I...

    Re: What are your non negotiables when buying a 4x4?

    Yes. Which is something that has always amused me. It's one of the normal arguments put forward by the appliance folk. Their other argument is that nothing breaks. I still don't get it.

    1: Size. I want myself and passengers to be comfortable. I also want to intimidate the taxis, and size is its own form of safety too.

    Mike - as we've already discussed, I don't think the MPPT charger will work at all. I'll test with a PWM straightoff alternator over the weekend. Will post an update when done.

  21. Re: Solar charge controller connected whilst alternator charging

    I doubt anything will pop or blow. But it will be a nice really-real world test. I've got everything needed.

    The only hiccup is possible vehicles with "smart" alternators. My truck is too old to...
  22. Re: Solar charge controller connected whilst alternator charging

    I've got a Victron MPPT in the camping setup and some other cheap PWM type thing at home. I think I'll give this a test. Maybe it works... :)
  23. Re: Solar charge controller connected whilst alternator charging

    Theoretically, it seems to make sense. But it will not work.

    Solar panel voltage is not 12V. For a 12V system (meaning 12V on the battery side - not on the solar input side), the voltage from the...
  24. Re: Solar charge controller connected whilst alternator charging

    No. You cannot connect your alternator to the PV inputs on your solar charge controller.

    I presume you have a setup for AC220V in, and PV (solar panel) in. What you could do is add a second Brad...
