RE: Roadtrip by car vs RV, a couple of thoughts...

Five days and 1,000 miles? I'm in an airplane.

RE: Got forced into MS 365

I had to buy Microsoft 365 for $99.99/year. $99 per year will about buy a new Apple with the software included. I had no idea MS was moving to subscriptions when I recently switched to Apple. I am happy every day knowing I avoided this. Although the Apple/MAC world is certainly not everyone's cup of tea. Best of luck.

RE: Frame Stiffing to reduce Porpoising?

I am curious if the weight rating is primarily given for a load low in the bed with less front to rear rotational mass. I mean to say a load 4000# of gravel vs 4000# gooseneck vs 4000# truck camper are very different on the dynamic frame stress even if the static downward pressure is the same.

RE: Frame Stiffing to reduce Porpoising?

F450-F550 would be the method to strengthen the frame. Otherwise post the scale weights, door sticker and a video of the frame in motion.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

Ahh, the good old days.Yes at less than 10 cents people complained about the gas back then too. Good pay was $5 for a 12 hour shift.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

Next there are almost 1.5 billion motor vehicles in the world, Tesla made 1.37 million last year. So, just over 1,000 years to go. So, if dropping carbon dioxide is your goal, then you will not achieve it by producing cars, that front load the carbon dioxide. Numbers range from 5 to 8 years to pay out an EV on carbon dioxide. Not to mention the greenhouse gas production from the infrastructure. Just an engineer playing with the numbers. You must look at the entire system, not just one part (car). Better to make a fuel from atmospheric or industrial waste carbon dioxide, with renewable energy, than build a billion cars/trucks, plus powerlines and power plants and charging stations. Just an estimated opinion. Replacing the existing thing is really a monumental job, underestimated by most who discuss the subject.Replacement is in progress no matter the fuel. And besides how on earth did we build that 1.5 billion in only the past 120 years? Surely we are better at it today than even 50 years ago.

RE: Effect of no absorption on LiFePo4?

Time2roll, I have seen articles that suggest every 30 cycles or days that the bank be balanced. https://s2.solacity.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/xLiFePO4-charging.gif.pagespeed.ic.yG7HJ5J6K3.png width=395 https://www.solacity.com/how-to-keep-lifepo4-lithium-ion-batteries-happy/ I scanned it. Not sure what you are reading that would indicate the 30 day cycle. And the article is flat wrong about the battery will only be at 90% charged at 14.4 volts and zero absorption time.

RE: Effect of no absorption on LiFePo4?

Charging to 14.4 on any regular basis as described by the OP is sufficient to keep the cells balanced. There is no recommendation to periodically change the charging cycle for balancing. Yes if the battery is short charged to 13.6 or less it may or may not get any balancing from the BMS. Could go years like that without issue. The primary time balance can be a critical process is when the battery is first assembled to verify the cells are at the same level to start with.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

Nikola decided to go with just a battery for the first truck. Hydrogen still in development. 330 miles range. https://promotions.nikolamotor.com/tre Interesting the hydrogen TRE is described as 500 mile range.

RE: Effect of no absorption on LiFePo4?

At 14.0 to 14.4 bulk volts there is no need for absorption time. Worst case the battery might be 2% or 3% undercharged which will not hurt anything ever.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

[email protected], now my Cheetos are going to be late!! What is going on here? Been out a month and they are already breaking down. Musk said that the drivetrain is guaranteed to last 1 million miles and it happens to share many components with Tesla’s passenger vehicles. Well hell. That didn't age well!!!Yes I understand the Semi has now stopped production due to these two incidents for which Tesla is being sued and will soon be bankwupt and Elon is going to jail. Déjà vu all over again

RE: PayPal Money Request Scam

Not a reflection on PayPal. This junk is all around. Nothing looks legit. Maybe drop the AOL.

RE: Help - jacks are draining my batteries

Slow battery charging is probably the voltage. Post the converter model number for best answers. Better yet measure the charging voltage and post it also. s/b 14.4 to 14.6 while charging.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

Actually I've been thinking it's time for me to go. I wouldn't have these conversations with folks like y'all in real life so why bother on the internet? I do wish I could send you some of our deranged politicos.:BDon't post in a thread more than the OP and the issue goes away.

RE: Are the new WFCO's as crappy as the old ones?

I have a "crappy" WFCO 68100. It's 11 years old. I have no idea if it goes into bulk mode. Is that bad?Have you ever pushed the button?

RE: Unable to identify model of trailer

Everything you need will either be standard across most trailers or custom made. Not sure knowing the year, make and model is going help much. Best of luck. Going to be a fun project. Is it going to be road worthy or just a guest house?

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

APS in Phoenix pays less than retail for excess solar. So customers have to pay more per kWh at night than they receive per kWh when the solar is generating.Yes and this is drawing more people to zero export inverters. Instead a battery is charged with any excess solar and utilized overnight. Allows direct consumption of all or most generated power. Stops the sell back at a discount.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

That's OK, just read that Montana plans to BAN EV sales by 2035I think you mean "Wyoming" to placate the oil and other FF energy business leaders there. Maybe they should ban all vehicles that get over 15 mpg? I mean at least an EV can run on Wyoming coal fired electricity. Lots of wind power in WY too... how does that fit into this? https://www.msn.com/wyoming-lawmakers-push-for-electric-car-ban-and-to-limit-sales-by-2035
