RE: One Great Big EV Thread

fj12ryder, The most successful battery in 1901 was the Edison battery. It has little in common with lead acid. It dwarfs the cycle life of LiFePo4. It is not cheap. It is not small. It is not light. They last 30 years.

RE: Is my inverter fried?

Campigloo, Sorry to hear the the dead inverter. Did you open the case and look for fuses?? What have you decided to replace it with?

Successful Solid State LI battery

Hi all, They are still just the size of a quarter--but hopefully they can be scaled up!

RE: 6 v GC batteries versus 12 v lithium deep cycle batteries

3tons, I've not blocked anyone for many years. But recently two members called me a liar, one directly and one indirectly. So with sadness, I did block them. It is too bad.

RE: gas shortages along Interstates

Since this is about camping how far does that tinker toy tow a trailer? 3400 miles way back in 2015 from coast to coast hauling a tear drop.

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Electric has a big lead on hydrogen because there is already a distribution network in place. Small (tiny) home generation is possible for electric. Natural gas may be more viable than hydrogen--but it is definitely a polluting fuel. However, many homes do have it--so there is a distribution system available.

Li are finicky. SiO2 are not. PM me if you want to know more. -30-

RE: Lifting my class C

BruceMc, that's my understanding, too (that for Class C's the length behind the wheels is the most important factor). It is more about the ratio of wheel base to length. Ideal is 55% which would be 178 inches and 26 feet. As one gets closer to 50% drivability drops off FAST. Below 50% and you will be correcting the steering more or less constantly. That makes it tiring to drive. I went from 27 feet to 28 feet 5 inches--there was a WORLD of difference and it took me over two years to get used to it.

RE: Lifting my class C

I solved most of my issues by getting taller tires. I did replace the rims, too. I still have a roller in place but scrapping is mostly a thing of the past. I did add a leaf (and replace some broken ones) on the rear wheels.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

next time you get it fixed use only premium fuel and treat it with seafoam. It would not hurt to try some seafoam right now.

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Electric Transportation? What are you paying per kWh? $0.145 about 40% coal. There is one carbon sequestration plant. It uses 1/3 of its output to try to removed co2. But the catalyst keeps getting contaminated with fly ash. My electrical use in Saskatchewan is between $14 and $15 (cdn) per month--but my bill is closer to $45 due to delivery charges and taxes.

RE: Lithium battery charging in FW of truck

Frank, Start an email with the makers to get the information you need?

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Bet if you did a little looking you would see "Big Oil" is investing in renewable energy. Shell Oil has been investing in renewables for some time. In Canada PetroCan has EV charging stations at many (most?) locations and covers the Transcanada highway.

Mex, You mean the oil industry is doing a "Hail Mary"?
