RE: 19.5s again ... new recommendations?

I went with Toyo M608 on my 2013 2500HD, they worked well except a little noisy with the open shoulder on the front . I run around 10,500lbs loaded and got almost 65,000 miles and still had tread left, I upgraded my truck to a 2019 otherwise they would still be on the truck. They were real good in the rain and had excellent traction in the snow and ice.

RE: First Aid Kit Contents

I always include a splint, tourniquet and blood clotting pads or Israeli bandage as well as extra large gauze and extra ace type bandages.

RE: Air bag question and suspension in general I guess

One of the main things with air bags is you don’t want to unload your springs, if you do you your sway and bounce will increase. I did air bags on my 2013 2500HD with a 3000+lb commercial work cap and the ride was too bouncy and I had more sway, I ended up going with a set of 3500lb helper springs and then the bags were just used to level side to side. The problem with upping the springs is unloaded ride suffers so that might be a deal breaker for you, my truck has a load 95% of the time so I can deal with the harsh ride with the small amount it is unloaded. I did have 19.5 tires so that did contribute Some to the harsh unloaded ride.

RE: State of charge

Resize this...... A flooded battery can irreversibly sulfate it's way to death but show resting voltage as being "normal" full charge. Read nothing more or nothing less in your replies thank you :) What causes this to happen? Not being fully charged, often from too low a charging voltage. Oh ok, my charger is charging at 14.75 Volts so that should not be an issue.

RE: State of charge

So this ARB 50 quart frig is pretty efficient, it ran for 96 hours in 70-80 degree temperatures set to 34 degrees and pulled the two Trojans T105s down to 12.68 volts. So less than 10%. I let them rest for about 24 hours before checking the voltage.

RE: State of charge

I am using a pair of Trojan T105s to power a ARB 50 quart frig, I leave for three days with them fully charged. They don’t seem to be being drawn down much, they started fully charged at12.86 volts and only went down to 12.68 volts.

State of charge

How accurate is using resting voltage as a indicator of state of charge?

RE: Myrtle Beach Problems

Just wait as more people get desperate it will get worse, I bet their income has gone down quite a bit.

RE: Airbags?

I used Firestone and they worked great on my 2013 2500HD, I just ran a air line from each bag to each side of the license plate. I never had a issue adjusting them, I just used a bicycle pump you don’t need a compressor.

RE: Used diesel, anyway to tell if it's been chipped?

If they installed a tuned ecm and then put the original ecm back in to sell it, the dealer can tell by looking at the regen history and comparing to the mileage of the truck. If it was tuned and then returned to stock for sale it will show in the ecm.

RE: How many Ah

I got the electrical enclosure built for the charger, inverter, battery switches and buss bars.

RE: How many Ah

Anyone have any recommendations for waterproof connectors, I want to be able to unhook the 12 volt 10gauge Wire going to the canopy for unloading.

RE: How many Ah

#10 wire would be fine for a 5 amp load @ 12 volts DC. Thanks.
S Davis 05/10/20 01:12pm Tech Issues
RE: How many Ah

S Davis, Are you running it on 12 volt DC or 120 volt AC? If 120 volts AC #16 wire would be just fine. It is running on 12 volts, so 5amps @ 12 volts I believe. This is where the battery bank is being installed in a box made of marine plywood between.

RE: How many Ah

So I received the frig, it draws .5 amps at 120 volts. I need to run from my fuse block about 8 feet to a outlet in the cab and about 6 feet to a outlet in my commercial cap, they suggest a 15 amp fuse what size wire should I use? Can I get away with 10 gauge?

RE: How many Ah

Should I use deox on the crimped connections?

RE: How many Ah

I am using 1/0 DLO rated at 260amps and it will be between 12” and 18” from the bus bar.

RE: How many Ah

Ok so I picked up 4 Trojan T-105s today, the battery boxes showed and I should have the 75amp Powermax charger tomorrow. I am planning on two banks each with a battery switch and then to a 650amp buss bar, the Powermax will connect to the buss bar. I am getting a 2000watt PSW inverter that will Also connect to the bus bar, should the inverter be fused? I am also installing a lift gate plug for connecting to a truck campers batteries, I was planning on a 120 amp breaker on this Incase of issues with the umbilical or the truck camper. Eventually I will be installing a charge line from the truck, this I was planning on a 120amp breaker as well on each end.

PSW inverter

I need a PSW inverter, probably 2000 watt. Any suggestions for a decent quality one?
