RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Got the wire bungs through the floor for the alternator charge circuit, 12volt 120amp feed to the truck bed as well as the 50 amp and 30 amp shore power inlet and outlet. I mounted the enclosure to the four hard points for the rear seats and seat belts, started installing the three 20 amp 120v outlets on the front and both sides of the enclosure. Batteries soon. Inverter install

RE: Battery Question

kenkorona, No one has mentioned the Achilles heel of all but one Li formulation. They unsuited to use in cool weather. So anyone north of say Nebraska may have heating issues. It's fine if you full time, but few folks do that in a Truck Camper. Fortunately there is a solution that is excellent. For more information on solar surf here: https://freecampsites.net/adding-solar/ It looks like Battleborn has a battery heater now that can be controlled with a thermostat or manually. I am looking at 900ah in lifeline GPL30HTs or 450ah usable for my inverter install because I work off grid here in the NW islands and Cascade’s and can get into pretty cold temperatures. I will have to look at Battleborn now.

RE: Inverter AGM questions

Made a little more progress, I received the 1/0 DLO cable and was able to run a 1/0 negative from under the center console, drilled the holes through the truck floor for the wiring for the 120v 50 amp shore power, 30 amp outlet from inverter, charge line from truck alternator and to lift gate plug mounted in the bed of the truck. I got the enclosure mounted in the back seat area, it bolts to the mounts for the rear seats and seat belts. Still have to finish covering the top of the enclosure, ordering batteries soon now that I have a spot to put them. Inverter enclosure install

RE: Inverter cooling fan

Thanks for the input I am going to go with two Noctua NF-A14 iPPC-2000s to start and will monitor temps and add more if needed, I have a four fan control with individual temperature settings so I can stage them based on the temperature in the enclosure.

RE: RV parts shortages

The other issue can be the OEM(or assembler of said RV, car)part has a different part number from the manufacturer and a lot of the time it is easier to go directly to the manufacturer part number. I just had a customer go five weeks with no heat or hot water because Bradford White didn’t have the parts to make the heater and it was a warranty replacement that had to use the exact same unit, I can get heat pump and A/C units but the line sets to connect them are weeks to months out.

Inverter cooling fan

I am getting ready to install a Outback VFXR2812 inverter, it is going in an enclosure and needs ventilation. Those of you with an enclosed inverter what are you using for a cooling fan? The inverter can support up to a .7 amp draw for the fan.

RE: DC to DC charger

I have a 50 amp on my 2019 Chevy with a 270 amp alternator charging four Trojan T-105s and have had no issues.

RE: Inverter AGM questions

My lift gate plugs came in for the charge circuit to the truck bed, now I have to wait to get the 1/0 DLO cable and lugs. Lift gate plug

RE: Inverter AGM questions

Well I wanted to get the enclosure installed in the truck but I needed some 1/0 DLO to run from under the middle console under the carpet for the charge circuit from the truck before installing it. I got the box of wire out it was supposed to be 40’ of 1/0 DLO cable, instead they sent 40’ of 4/0 DLO cable. So I got the battery box vent installed, and then sealed them before painting.

RE: Inverter AGM questions

That's going to be one heck of a system! Should be able to run everything I want including occasional A/C.

RE: Inverter AGM questions

I am getting ready to install the inverter system in the back of my CC pickup so thought I would bump this. I have removed the rear seats and am building the enclosure for the two 450ah battery banks the inverter and other associated electrical. Inverter box Inverter box in truck

RE: On line battery source

I am getting ready to purchase six lifeline batteries and can’t find anyone local to get them from. Anyone purchased batteries online recently, how did it go? Consider SiO2 instead. http://azimuthsolarproducts.com/product-category/batteries/sio2/ I could fit two of their 8D 270ah batteries and still be close to the charging spec of 135amps with my Outback FXR2812. What is the track record on these? Scratch that the 8Ds have a 27% duty into the states not including customs and shipping.

RE: On line battery source

I had had great success buying batteries for clients from Power Stride Battery. Matt EDIT: Fixed the link. Thanks, lowest shipped price so far.

RE: On line battery source

Lifeline Batteries Tell him you got his name from someone on the Prevost Community forum. Good prices and an excellent reputation. Thanks I will give them a call.

RE: Alternators - what are your thoughts?

https://imgur.com/gallery/EoSXEF7 I have a system with 50amp Redarc and four Trojan T-105s, I run a portable compressor fridge and battery charging for work tools. The Redarc is my only charge source at this point. This is installed on my truck not camper. I ran 1/0 DLO cable for the charging circuit, I am in the process of upgrading it to run a Outback 2800 inverter with six Lifeline GPL-30HTs. This will give me two 450ah battery banks. I plan on using it to power the a/c when needed.

Battery box vent size?

I am installing an inverter system on my truck, it has two separate battery boxes that will hold three Lifeline GPL-30HT each for a total of six, one box will vent to the other and then that box vents to the outside of the cab, What size vent should I run?
