Re: The future of MHome ‘house’ batteries is very bright!

Yep, if the battery is flattened by excessive ‘house’ use (or distance) then being towed (or Toad) uses your tow vehicle as a generator too. Now the Toad could become/replace the house batteries AND the generator too :TU Bonus for those with solar is the potential to use their inverter to ‘trickle c...

Re: The future of MHome ‘house’ batteries is very bright!

We’re loving our $11,600 (affordable) Gen1 model X Nissanleaf, and when looking to go away this year I think it will definitely be coming with... not necessarily as a true ‘toad’ since I’ve yet to get a tow at fitted to the bus, but since it travels essentially for free, as a ‘hop along too’ FROG?

Re: Dumbed down battery questions

Are they 24v? I have a spare 24v smart charger if you’re looking to buy one, or if you’re close enough to Pukekohe I’ll happilky lend it to you to get you running again.

Re: Self contained tanks questions

The flexible hose should work fine if you have the clearance to connect it at either end. The 40mm loop required doesn’t need to be above the height of the tank, but essentially just creates a water block to prevent air (smells) coming back from the grey tank. The water in the sink is higher than th...
