RE: Lithium Batteries

I think my 2 100AH LiFePo4 batteries are ok. I have not used them yet other than on 2 day trips due to my health. My alternator has a max capacity of 117 amps. It connects via #8 wire through 2 40 amp mini breakers to a battery isolator and then to the house batteries. I am attaching the specs for those batteries including the BMS protection, not sure if it will come. I hope you guys can confirm I am OK. I do not know how to change this pdf file to a jpg I can attach. I could scan it into my pc then attach. file:///C:/Users/Steve/Downloads/12V100Ah%20with%20BMS%20specs.pdf It says max continuous charge current is 50 amps, and the max charge current is 60 amps or less.

I live close to the border Detroit to Windsor. I usually tow my boat into Ontario 6 times in July-August for fishing. This year that could not be done. I support the closure. Most Canadians seem to support it due to their very low covid numbers compared to ours. I think if we had a 3 week mandatory nation-wide shutdown, except for essential workers, the virus would be dramatically reduced. Then slowly reopen with strict control measures; masks, distancing, etc.

RE: lithium batteries and shore power

I checked with Power Dynamics re my PD4635 converter if it will be OK with my brand new 2 100AH LiFePo4 batteries. They said yes, but to charge them with the boost mode button pushed in. I have The Trimetric TM-2030 Battery-Monitor and it will work OK. Unfortunately my bad health, cancer & hip replacement, happened right after the batteries arrived and I have not been able to go on a trip with them. My RV is stored now until next spring when I hope to be able to go.

RE: RV Batteries - Lithium as Option

I gave the Chinese mfrs of my lithiums the size dimensions of my small battery box, 14"x8"x9.5", & they custom made 2 100AH batteries for it. https://www.amazon.com/3-2V100Ah-Lithium-Power-car-Radio-3-2V100AH/dp/B07LBFQGKX/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=3QDVAKORNTUG0&keywords=lithium%2Brv%2Bbattery%2B200ah&qid=1560184054&s=gateway&sprefix=lithium%2Brv%2Csporting%2C175&sr=8-1-spons&th=1 I ended up dealing direct with them and paying through Alibaba; Emily Cao | Sales manager Orient Power Group Limted Zhuhai OTE Electronic Technology Co., Ltd TEL:0086 756 8598 852 M/Whatsapp: +86 138 2306 3759 Email: emily2914@hotmail.com; emily2914@orientpower.asia Web: www.orientpower.asia Skype Chat: emily2914 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/orientpower.asia

RE: Dish Network receiver question

I have a 211k in the house and move it to my rv when traveling. I have a hard drive plugged into it for a dvr. I use a Tailgater automatic dish. I have used a Dish 500 before. There is no cost to do this.

RE: Muskegon, Manistee Salmon Runs

There are many campgrounds in the area and a State park. Google to find them.

RE: movable solar panels/built in system?

I have used a 120 watt portable suitcase for some time and am very happy with it. I have no problem moving it around every so often to chase the sun. That's better than having to park in the sun for roof mounted panels.

RE: RV Sales Push

I saw on the news that trailer sales are up, but motorhome sales are down. And that the under 40 age group has become the main new buyers vs the older folks as in the past.

RE: long term non-use/storage

A little different situation, but you may find some nuggets you can use: When we head for Texas each fall I put Stabil in our Durango and run it for awhile to get the treated fuel throughout the system. Then I connect a battery maintaner to the battery and leave it for 6-7 months. Now, it is garaged, and it's for a shorter term than you're intending, but I believe the packaging on Stabil indicates it's good for a year. Iowa allows me to remove the insurance with no penalty and I remove all but comprehensive coverage. At least then it's covered if a tree falls on the garage. I've been doing this with the same vehicle for the past 9 winters and it's always fired right up when we return in the spring. Hope this helps. That sounds exactly like what I've been doing for 20 years. This time it'll be a little longer.

RE: long term non-use/storage

UPDATE: I got the starter battery replaced and started it. The engine just purrs. I let it idle for 15-20 minutes.

RE: Stay on your own side....

In New Zealand, they have got new cases down to zero. The have returned to life. Italy, new cases are down 97% from their peak. And for this discussion Canada is down 80% from peak. Meanwhile in US the number of cases is increasing at a increasing rate. Why should a country risk all the work they have done to protect their country when have the people in US, instead of picking up their gun and fighting the invading army, we invite them in for supper, make sure they have a nice bed to spend the night. I usually fish in Ontario 6x a year. Not this year due to health & it being nonessential. Canada should not let we Americans in until we get under the curve. We need to shut it down and stay at home.

RE: Required signing waiver of responsibilty

I would think they would be liable if they were negligent, but not sure if that is intentional. A lawyer should know.

RE: Roadside Assistance Companies

I've used AAA for over 20 years with my Class B. They've towed me a few times due to various reasons. And changed a blown tire. Never had a problem. I've upgraded to their RV level to get increased free tow range. I do insure with AAA to get this. Satisfied for over 20 years.

RE: Happy birthday Canada.

I live in the only area of the US due North of Canada (a good trivia question) and go there at least 6 times a year for fishing. But not this year due to my health let alone the closure to nonessential traffic. I would not let Americans in as we are the most infected country in the world. The gov't really screwed up early on by not recognizing the emergency and getting enough testing done to quarantine the infected. It's going to be a long time until we get through this. But my state's governor, Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, has done a good job of closures and we are one of the least infected states now after being the 3rd worst early on. Ohhhh Canada!!!!
