RE: Front hitch

Clarification, I am considering getting a winch in a cradle, for front and rear fitting if getting bogged and traveling solo, yes it happens from time to time, also les money than replacing hole of front bumper and can be used in rear hitch for going backwards. Also less weight on front as can be carry in back of truck. Prefer to get of the shelf, but as in Australia delivery cost also a major consideration thanks. Frank.

RE: Batteries

Ok thanks all as I suspected it appears that we will be in for some new batteries shortly before any major travel any way. Have a short one week trip in the next few weeks at a park, but may try not to hook op to se how it goes. Will probably go with another lot of Crowns or Trojans if they will fit, I kind of shoehorned my Crowns in to my homemade battery box. If one drops dead I can always use the 2 best.
Slownsy 10/16/20 05:13pm Tech Issues

I have 4 6V 260A Crown batteries. They are 5 years old and don’t like to charge op to good. After charging and disconnected only 12.69V, day after at 12.57v . Gravity of cells from 1275 to loves tat 1240. From my estimated at about 80% off the 520A from new ? Newer discharged to less than60% mostly less, but when out last had to use our generator for charging true my Magnum inverter charger, they were accepting a bit over 100A for a period before tapping down slowly. My wife do like to run microwave with inverter which draws about 150A, the most I have ever seen on the display was a bit below 200A draw. We have 600W of solar on roof charging tru a Tri-Metric 30A charger. Normally discharge 1.3-1.4A so about 30A in 24 hours. Also when away running a inverter fridge etc use 75-100A in 24hours. So my question is can I still expect reasonable use out of the batteries or do I have to replace fairly soon. Thanks Frank. I am in Australia by the way.

RE: Question/help with pin box

I do not believe the rotating pin box is recommended with the Super glide hitch. Frank.

RE: Lithium Batteries

Can they be linked in parallel etc, as apparently some LI batteries can’t, and what about discharge rate for high inverter loads. Thanks Frank.

Tri-metric TM 2030

I believe my tri-metric solar charger is not charging probably as I don’t hardly ever se anything much going in to batteries I have 4/6V 260A and they are 5 years old, solar is 4/150W Renogi panel’s. The display shows how much A is going in and out but only ———— instead of battery % or full, I have a Inteli Power PD9245 charger for when on grid as well as my Magnum MSH 3012M inverter charger when on generator. We run a Inverter house hold fridge of a Victron inverter and are on the road for the next week so can’t shut everything of to test batteries. But before leaving on this trip they only showed 12.7 V after disconnecting power cord so not great. Checking with hydrometer 2 shows just in green and 2 in white. I know I probably will have to get new batteries shortly but is this why the trimetric display don’t show % or is this something else. Any thoughts and recommendations . Frank.

RE: CDC and the government may be loosening the lockdown

It is better to be alive and broke than to be dead so stay in isolation as much as possible to protect yourself your family and everyone else. And good luck to you all. My wife and son presently returned from the states, she did not get it but my son did, we have all bean in isolation for 14 days and my son now is good again and seeing his kids for the first time in 5 weeks. We in Australia are still not allowed to travel interstate or from one area to the next if not for shopping or in transport or emergency services. Ve don’t particularly like it but it is for the best. Frank

RE: Raising my 5th wheel

By placing axles under springs you gain debt off axles and springs normally around 5-6” Frank

RE: Best way to bring shine back to fiberglass body.

I have read about peaple using floor polish, but also about it flaking off so probably not a great idea, I would not think that as it is a indoor product that it has much in the way of UV protection. I personally also use Polly Products as made for fibre glass boats. Frank

RE: Difference between Yamaha & Honda Inverters

I don’t think that most peaple here are taking there sticks and bricks on holidays but whatever takes your fancy. Frank.

RE: How does GCVWR affect stopping if you have trailer brakes?

And that is why all trailers over 4500kg has to have approved air brakes in Australia so when things go wrong those brakes pulls you op. Frank.

RE: I expect a 10 cent price increase in diesel

You poor guys in OZ we pay $1.44 per liter of diesel. If you’re president and your economy is so great what are you complaining about. Frank.
