RE: Beginning RVer: Is this Scenario Doable?

Hi Brad, Welcome to the forums. How about setting up a line of credit loan?

RE: SiO2 Batteries and High Amp Draws

High draw on LiFePo4 is limited by the battery management system. It depends on what the maker sets it at. Anyone know what is most common? 100 amps (1c)??? Seeing as my goal is a battery bank of at least 400 and possibly 700 amp-hours, the speed of charging of Li is not useful to me--as my fastest charger maxes out at 127 amps @ nominal 12 volts. Efficiency also does not concern me as I want to float the batteries between trips. SiO2 float nicely. Li, not so much. For me, the most important factor is full charging not required on each cycle. My understanding is that both Li and SiO2 are quite happy, if they are fully recharged once every 30 days.

RE: how to replace the charger inverter in a four winds

I'm having good success with reconditioned telcom agm batteries. What make and model is the current inverter/charger?

RE: SiO2 Batteries and High Amp Draws

If price is the only parameter, along with no maintenance, then it is hard to beat reconditioned telcom jars. Mine are 4 years old. They will support the microwave at 170 amps. I just did bacon and egg in the micro at a fairly new campground (4 years old). On a 30 amp service the load support cut in and drew 95 amps. The toaster did not trigger load support. BFL13's test is not when the batteries are at 100%--and that's good because that's a real life scenario.

RE: SiO2 Batteries and High Amp Draws

604 times to dead on SiO2 will reduce capacity to 80% of new.

Thanks for the research.

RE: Renogy Battery Monitor vs Trimetric UPDATE- Camping Test

Hi BFL13, Thanks! That is the answer I hoped to hear.

RE: Renogy Battery Monitor vs Trimetric UPDATE- Camping Test

Hi BFL13, 200 amp-hours of what type of battery?

RE: HELP: Fridge issues and trip tmw!

Sometimes taking the fridge out and rolling it end for end and side for side may free the blockage. Wives tail. The blockage is as hard as a Weld slag. What you stated is called "burping". WILL NEVER FIX A REFER BLOCKED COOLING UNIT. But, what is can do is "rearrange" the Ammonium liquid to temporarily bypass the blockage but will only work partially for a few days to a week. Once the blockage stops the liquid again the refer stops cooling. Doug Hi doug, Pray tell us why it worked for BobsyourUncle?

Unfortunately, there may be a blocked tube.

RE: Catastrophic Fuse

Catastrophic failure fuse always at the battery post (I chose positive). Why? Because they used to use batteries to weld. 1200 watts of energy being dumped in a second is enough for a quite nice fire and just for good measure the battery may explode. A fine thing to have hot acid all over. This is an IMPORTANT and easy fix. I would make the change asap.

RE: Lifepo4 float setting?

Hi, I found this of interest. Note the voltage drop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dmWqHR7b9w

RE: Boondocking on Oxygen Can it Be Done?

The only caution may be carbon monoxide from a generator. On one occasion the ten liter unit flashed a warning light on and off. I turned on the inverter and shut down the generator. All was well, and after an hour I restarted the generator.

Sonora108, I've run a 10 liter unit from a generator.

RE: AGM Deep Cycle batteries

Hi, I'm having excellent results from telecom batteries. I got them at the Interstate store. When one battery in a string in the tower goes bad, they replace them all. They are tested and "reconditioned" and have a warranty. I do have an upscale charger, and solar, too. So I got 556 amp-hours of batteries for $395 (usd). I'll replace them with SiO2 when the time comes.

RE: Is there an Air Conditioner using Inverter Compressor

This appears to be an inverter unit: https://www.amazon.com/Midea-Inverter-Conditioner-Flexibility-Installation/dp/B08677DCKN/ref=asc_df_B08677DCKN/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=459702673131&hvpos=undefined&hvnetw=g&hvrand=18335739938616379956&hvpone=undefined&hvptwo=undefined&hvqmt=undefined&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=undefined&hvlocint=undefined&hvlocphy=9033433&hvtargid=pla-942766582302&fbclid=IwAR2rmQ9sGgE58wVka4PbWzOrBaQH2D2ygUjT0uLsXEAwuQ5ufbPtqs8yyw4&th=1

DiploStrat, Which 12 volt air conditioner are you using?
