RE: Just a little road trip....

I wish I could join you! Even to Penticton would be nice! Think you are going to run into nasty weather? Have a good trip! Stay safe! The forecast shows sun for the next couple days, with cool temps. We could get some snow, no doubt but we can park whenever we need to. Don't HAVE to be be home till we get there, although the lady has a hair appointment on Friday and..you know..things could be tense. Gary

RE: Just a little road trip....

Have a good trip Gary - sounds like fun. Oh and make sure not to cross various lines on a map - according to politicians license plates begin shedding virus’s’z immediately upon leaving um town? or is it health region? Or is it province? Anyway it begins immediately... The gov't request is to not cross provincial boundaries, so we are within BC's lines. Gary

RE: Just a little road trip....

You could park overnight at the boat launch at Syringa Creek PP. during the day there are people walking dogs etc at the boat launch and at 1/2 km farther up the road at the campground, however by late afternoon, there won’t be a sole around. The boat launch is the first left after the big condo complex ( couple hundred yards) After you turn in, I suggest taking a right turn at the bottom of the little hill, as you enter the large parking area. After you enter the big parking area at the bottom of the little hill, the all season boat launch is to the boat left, and the summer season boat launch is to the right. Summer boat launch is a long ways from the water right now, so little if any traffic down that way. Have fun on your trip. Soup. Thank you...we rolled just a bit past, to Robson...the Lions Head pub...they okay'd parking in their lot..and here we are, deer trotting by this morning. Love their deep fried pickles.... Gary

Just a little road trip....

Leaving this morning..Sunday...for a 5 day drive. Off east on the Crowsnest, as far as Castlegar, turn north up the west side of the Rockies...into Revelstoke, on to Salmon Arm and hoe on Thursday. Just want to shake out the cobwebs a bit and I have a couple cftar brew places to investigate. Due to the pandemic, we follow very strict procedures..in the brix n stix home and the wheeled one. Masks on when in any public spaces, we have two washing stations, so upon entry, washy hands. We do not socialize..I can see the eye brows at mention of a craft house. I cannot speak for anywhere else, but in BC these are closely regulated. Names and number at the door, wait till assigned a cleaned space, staff are always masked. Customer is masked until seated...and before leaving the table. So...looking forward to just being on the road for a few days. Gary Haupt

RE: Charging Li-Ions batteries

"A way to keep the li from freezing or relying on a heating pad." and for me..there-in lies the weak spot. I live in BC and right now, as I type it is -3, feels like -10 and has a good bit of overnight snow. I prefer the KISS way of doing things and having to add a heating element, that must in turn be powered for "2 hours prior to beginning charging" is just trouble looking to happen. Thanks for your input folks. Gary

RE: Charging Li-Ions batteries

Ok if you have a rechargable battery.. ANY Type. what you need is the proper charger.. Not too fast, not too slow.. Proper voltages and so on. And they make chargers for the batteries Some the charge controller is part of the battery Package) https://bioennopower.com/ for example I believe (and I stress that word Believe) makes them that way.. Do not know about battle Born but I believe (Again stress that word) they have a deal with Progressive Dynamics. Okay..thanks for this.... Gary

RE: Charging Li-Ions batteries

Reading up some on the topic and charging a bank seems to be an issue. Is anyone familiar with this application in the RV world? and or sail boats? A bit of backstory...my S-I-L is planning to build a bank for his sailboat...to power his electric motor. He is offering to build me a bank for my RV and I have been 'encouraged' by one of our members, to do a bunch of research. So..doing that as well as asking here.I don't think there is any issue with charging a lithium battery to a set voltage to match the required specification. The real issue is the BMS to balance the cells, limit charging current, limit discharge current, limit high and low voltage, etc. All of which changes based on temperature. I think most RVers use drop in batteries although a few roll there own. Are you building a battery from individual cells and connecting your own BMS/controller? I don't have the foggiest idea....he is building his own..at least that is his plan..and offered to build me a bank as well. I was 'assuming' that I didn't have to understand anything more than I already do with 12v..which..things work or OMG the batteries are dead..now what? I posted my question hoping it was going to be an easily understood answer..now, I see that I must turn to a mind booster....will that be Makers Mark or Knob Creek... Just as an aside...they have bought a 30ft 45 year old CnC and the engine is rusted to rat s***. Now out..they are heading for an electric motor with a rack of solar and bank of batteries. I have the motor link if anyone is interested..the name is Thunderstruck. Gary

RE: Charging Li-Ions batteries

Mine charge just fine. Lithium in subject posts Thanks...can you tell me what kind of charging system you have? I am reading about them and there seems to be quite a bit of concern... https://community.particle.io/t/how-to-get-a-li-ion-battery-to-charge-faster/10178/3?fbclid=IwAR30RHR8Kb1lF-ff8jyIWBylQQUlypYasPgUzbPWBDl3NeZOugtvpjS5cFU Gary

RE: Border closure for land travel extended.

All of my US reservations have been cancelled. And Canada is on my list of places to again visit, most likely BC initially. Stop by in Penticton....say hello... Gary

RE: Why we head back south before November

And California, Arizona, Utah never get snow storms, no they don't. We won't talk about the 3 days we drove thru the north Sierra's from east to west...Reno to Susanville to Red Bluff this past March. I will say tho, many parts of Canada are remote and folks getting into trouble is not uncommon. Gary Haupt

RE: 12 volt blanket?

We camp in very low temps, often..minus 15. We have a very cheap, very warm man made fibre, sleeping bag that opens up to cover the bed..and we use that. I am a power miser and don't want to wake up to low batteries. Gary Haupt

RE: CDN Snowbirds getting their RV's across....

I really do not understand why people act this way. The selfishness just drives me 'round the bend. Gary
