RE: Lithium Ion Batteries...Yikes

Thanks for posting - glad you were able to extinguish the fire. Oh by the way - all DC batteries store an amount of electrical potential that can’t wait to find it’s way to “ground” ...

RE: Can't overcome the fear of buying a Truck and TC.......

My sister in law (****... what is the correct anak..nakran... internent rv forum abbreveratirrotrion..oh ya! SIL) worked in banks and credit unions for many moons. she says you would not believe the number of people who are >65 or >70 who have hundreds of thousands of net worths who wonder if they can afford some spending on themselves... She says I lean over quiet like and tell them you know your money isn't really here in the bank... its numbers on a statement... the feds let us lend it out five times over what we have on deposit.... go ahead ... go to the counter and ask them to bring it all out where you can look at it.... It might be different in the USA...

RE: How to avoid getting blown all over the road

RV "bumper tow trailers" have their wheels in the pivot mount for a weather vane position, crossed with a teeter totter fulcrum. Modern light duty trucks have fluffy suspensions. I used a (bought used) ProPride hitch on a won ton single wheeler towing a heavy 32ft travel trailer (12500lbs). It stopped the wig wag from traffic bow waves and cross wind. It had certain other pains in the keester but it did not "sway". The rig went down the road like it was on rails.

RE: Charge wizard with Lithium upgrade to Converter charger?

Why do litium batteries require a "float" mode? Doesn't the BMS accept charge until full then shut off? Then turn on again when charge can be accepted? Thanks

RE: Help Ram 2500 6.4 gas vs diesel

Why do we "hooray" more tran mission speeds in pickup trucks then complain when the truck shifts gears when we are towing? Are you 4x4ord's alter ego? No.

RE: Ugh wet wood in Bigfoot

Can you source Azdel panels to use in place of plywood?

RE: Charge wizard with Lithium upgrade to Converter charger?

Give Progressive Dynamics a call and see what's up. I'm interested in this conversion - following this thread. Thanks

RE: RV travel across Canada during these lockdown times

... edit: nothing to add to the vax argument ... but I’ve done commercial travel back and forth Quebec City to interior BC in the last 2-1/2 weeks with RV type units.

RE: Ford experts - rear turn signal output to trailer stopped

Fords of that year have separate fuses for trailer taillight, left and right brake/turn lights. Correct answer. Update - closest answer ^ - but not any of the 3 - 15 amp fuses for each turn signal circuit or the brake circuit... Not any of the 3 relays... Not any kind of “module”... There is also a 25 amp fuse in the under hood power center that fuses all three relays and all 3 fuses in the other fuse box / body module... it was blown. Simple enough system once you find the info. It’s in the owner manual the previous owner “lost” that I have been too lazy to replace... Young tech at the dealership walked me through it in 5 minutes. He recommended a owner manual cause Ford fuse boxes are numbered not labelled. Signed A bit less confused by Fords

RE: Nokian Rockproof tires?

Rock proof? Not buying that. Resistant maybe. Maybe just a glitch in the translation from Finnish... I ran Nokia’s Hakkanpallita’s and they were very sisu with the correct pressure...

RE: Test charging stop for large EV’s, busses, trucks, mohos.

Have a look at the research around the Remora on board carbon dioxide capture system for long haul trucks. It is possible to scrub diesel exhaust without a whole new infrastructure. See also Sweden - diesel submarine - Those of us who have been around combustion engines for many moons know a person doesn't own too many engines - we are owned by too many batteries.

RE: can a ford ranger tow trailer on steep mtns rds?

Put actuators on the solar panels that can stand them up facing forward on downgrades. More frontal are with light weight works wonders for downgrade braking.

RE: Truck camper on top of gooseneck hitch?

My Cirrus camper has removable service panels on the bottom. I found stall mats to be pretty dense vs the screws holding the panels on. I changed to anti fatigue matting with the round holes.

RE: Ford experts - rear turn signal output to trailer stopped

Update- Off to Ford dealer this week to connect to the Ford mother ship for diagnosis.

RE: Ford experts - rear turn signal output to trailer stopped

Fords of that year have separate fuses for trailer taillight, left and right brake/turn lights. Correct answer. As mentioned in my original post the trailer circuit 15 amp fuses did not blow. There are also relays in the trailer circuits in the truck power center. Testing of them is next order. More info: the trailer right turn circuit was tested direct to a battery. Does not work - tiny spark when jumping to the terminal on the 7 way suggests a short in the trailer. Consumer OBD scanner does not show any codes. I suspect Nv Guy is on the right track.
