RE: Changing a tire yourself

2. You might want to not have just a regular high-tonnage hydraulic jack along - the better high-tonnage jack is one that extends higher just in case. i.e. A jack with dual cylinder capability so as to extend more than normal. i.e. What if the road shoulder is slanted downwards from the roadway, and the flat is on the side away from the roadway and you have/want to get the RV axle with the flat somewhat level?!Also note when you are buying a hydraulic jack that it needs to get under the axle/frame when the tire is flat or completely gone. Clearance can get very tight. Many higher tonnage jacks with decent lift may not go low enough.

RE: How to build a LiFePo4 battery bank.

IIRC coldest was 37f, daytime was 50s, battery coldest 44f. Not exactly severe conditions.

RE: How to build a LiFePo4 battery bank.

After a week in chilly Yosemite.... LFP is really game over for lead-acid. For me anyway. Absolutely no issues. Could have completely ignored any battery or power related activity and just focus on everything else.

RE: Help!

Need a camera down the pipe to find what is stuck and what it is getting hung up on. I assume this is the first real use?

RE: Protection from freezing

The tank heaters will work fine. If they are 12v the converter will supply the power. Either way you will want to be plugged in. Or is this an off grid adventure?

RE: Charging Timer?

I would be worried switching 30 amps DC with that small relay. Maybe control a 15 amp charger. Otherwise I would expect more reliability switching the AC power.

RE: New, low cost 100Ah 12V LiFePO4 battery !

Time2 Which battery is that pictured? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002669232736.html? https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/H27c9a88cfbed426dbaa2c60394a0201dx.jpg_220x220q90.jpg_.webp width=300 I think it was measured at 75 AH. Stone blocks added so the shipping weight would seem correct.

Careful you don't end up with one of these batteries for low price and claimed high capacity: https://i.imgur.com/bgadEmpl.jpg

RE: Protection from freezing

How cold is cold? Should be good to 25f while in use.

RE: I want to run a microwave on an inverter

Set the frozen TV dinner out for an hour or two and the heating time is greatly reduced.

RE: Question about gray water...?

When we had a pop up trailer we used a regular tote to pull behind the truck to the dump station. The tote fit into the pop up doorway if there was no dump station. Was never dumped on the ground.

RE: Question on changing leaf springs on 5'er

I put my entire trailer up on jack stands and did one side at a time. Seemed easier since I was replacing the equalizers etc that connect to both axles. A day to lift, day for each side then down made for three weekends. Mine was out of alignment due to sagging springs so once replaced all was good.

RE: Cold weather, generators, and campgrounds

My water heater runs 24/7 at home, why not in the RV?

RE: I want to run a microwave on an inverter

I have 2 Group 27s deep cycle. Looking like this may be more than I thought just to run it for 5-7 minutes?As long as you realize the most likely path will be a significant battery upgrade that is fine. Some do seem to manage on two batteries. Don’t expect to cook dinner, run the furnace all night and wake up to make coffee on inverter also.

RE: Cold weather, generators, and campgrounds

I mostly see failure to offer assistance to those with less knowledge and experience. What happened to helping others? Today most want to be angry at something.

RE: Cold weather, generators, and campgrounds

I don’t know the individual situation of those campers but under the conditions I give them a pass for the night. Did you speak to your neighbor in the morning to see if they could use some help?

RE: Amps Draw and Voltage Drop Question 2

Yes the LFP does seem to move a bit more air at 13.4 volts. Amp draw is significantly lower with steady 13+ volts vs. 11.x with the old battery running the kitchen.

RV is not the only way to travel. Best wishes to your next adventures.

RE: Amps/voltage to trailer brakes

Put your DC clamp-on ammeter on the wire at each wheel while a buddy manually applies the brakes using the controller. You should see about three amps at each wheel.

RE: Generator start leads

First make sure that LFP battery is rated for 500 amps. I would use a 350 amp Class-T from the battery to the bus. Connect the generator direct to the bus. The fuse should pass 500 amps for at least a minute, while a direct short should open the fuse before the wire melts.
