RE: Moving LiFePo4, Rewire or run Long Extensions?

Hello Adamis, I also have a Bigfoot Camper 25c 9.4 and am going through the process of gathering all the information I can regarding Lithium Batteries. On my camper the "Battery Box" enclosure is a plastic box with a vented metal door on the outside of the camper. The BB is located directly under and behind the sink cabinet with an open (at the top) partition separating the two. Here are my suggestions for your situations. 1. Insulate the access metal door with poly iso foam board - cheap at R 6.5-7/in. fit it very tight. Now it will be inside you conditioned space. 2. Keep cabinet doors open during the night to allow heat to circulate into the cabinet area. If your set up Is similar, remove the partition to allow more air to circulate around the BB. 3. Only use the inverter portion of the inverter/charger during times you need to warm baby bottles or make coffee, avoid using the converter for convince i.e., microwave, AC outlets, etc. Note: baby bottles have been warmed on the (propane) stove in water and tested on the wrist for decades, use an accurate digital thermometer if you want to go hi-tech. With the above low cost measures, you should be able to: have more usable Ah in the battery and keep the Battery warm for very little time and expense. Congrats on the baby girls. Enjoy and safe travels.

RE: TC Fitted Cover

Brought a top of the line Goldline, ripped second season, roof not water proof, for me only works to keep exterior clean and UV protection.

RE: Does anyone use an aftermarket Tire pressure system?

Two years ago, I purchased ORO Technology W410 TPMS off Amazon. It has worked great, a quick glance and I can see tire pressure. The sensors are inside the tire not external which I wanted. It is very accurate and programmable. I even used it to verify my other tire pressure gauges and throw defective ones away. If 3 gauges agree and 4th doesn't, 4th is trashed. Prior to that, I had one in each vehicle and trusted each. Very satisfied after 25000 miles of use and highly recommend it. Note: the sensors are tire specific so when you rotate your tires, the location isn't correct which for me is no big deal.

RE: Supporting camper with cinder blocks??

For our Bigfoot, I made a "pallet" consisting of (3) 4x4 supports topped with 3/4" PT plywood. The top of the pallet matches the bottom of the camper. The 4x4's are placed as per Bigfoots instructions. I have a 1" ploy iso foam board on top of the pallet to allow for some cushion. The 4x4's are supported on each end by aluminum jacks stands which are of top of 8"x16x4"solid cement blocks. I just lower the camper down, level it so that it is very close to the pallet. Then just raise each of the 6 jacks so the pallet is supporting the camper. Then I raise the camper jacks and then lower them to "assist" with taking some of the load. I've had no problems with this storage, the camper is 12-14" off the ground and is very stable.
