RE: What month to avoid the massive bug hatch??

I go to the UP in Sept/Oct. Kids are back in school, less crowds and bugs gone.

RE: Basics of Lithium conversion... I'm lost!

do you use a tiny computer fan or anything to blow the heat around or are you just using the heat radiating off the alumium base? Steve If using a thermostat controller like mine it must be placed to measure the heat in the batteries, not the surrounding air which would heat up quickly and perhaps shut down the heater before the batteries reach a good temp. If you look at my diagram and read the text, I placed the temp sensor between the 2 batteries which are tight together and below the top.

RE: Basics of Lithium conversion... I'm lost!

https://diysolarforum.com/threads/lifepo4-battery-warmer-install.14485/ This thread shows how to install warming pads and a thermostat controller for LiFePo4 batteries. Mine is shown on page 5 for my Class B. Works great. thats interesting, a lot of them seam to wrap the batteries in insulation tight, then have the pad stuck to the side. wouldnt it make more sence to have that insulation an inch or two away from the battery so you could get a bit of air movment and use less pads to heat more batteries? just thinking here so if it has been done and didnt work I would be curious as to why. seams to me if you have the space to put say 2 or 3" of good insulation with sy a 2" air gap between the batteries and the inside of the insulated box and say a tiny ultra low draw fan to cirulate the air, you could probably heat several batteries with one heating pad and cut the amp draw for that purpose. of course this would depend on the space you have also I guess. Steve In my Class B there is no room for insulation. That's why I wrapped the 1/2" neoprene insulation around the outside of the box. My Ultra Heat pad only draws 2 amps from the batteries. And I do not use it unless it is below freezing and I need to charge the batteries. It takes less than 2 hours to warm the batteries up for charging.

RE: LFP on Shore Power with Inverter/charger?

I just returned from a 4 day turkey hunting camping trip. I had electric at night. My PD4635 convertor charger worked well. PD told me to press in the boost button to get them fully charged, but I did not do that on this trip. When driving the alternator would charge the 2 LiFePo4 batteries. I noticed when the Trimetric reached 14.4 volts the charging stopped. I think that must be from the BMS. The cable from the alternator goes through a battery isolator and then 2 40 amp breakers.

RE: forum

Yesterday I towed my boat with my Xplorer to the ramp and went fishing. Used the boat and motorhome for the 1st time in almost 2 years due to health. All worked OK including me, but we caught no fish. Next time.

RE: Waited on Canada long enough

In Michigan since Feb 20 the 7 day average of daily new cases has gone from 814 to over 5,000. Hospitalizations have doubled. Not good, yet some scream the stats are all lies and there is no need to wear a mask, etc. Sad.

RE: Question about window tinting

Many states have laws regarding window tinting. Check yours. I CANT BELIEVE THERE IS A LAW AGAINST TINTING THE WINDOWS OF A TRAILER?? THE IDEA OF THAT IS CRAZY.. I did not know he had a TT. Obviously tint laws would not apply to it, but I bet they do to MHs.

RE: DVD and Blu Ray being discontinued?

SInce I do not own a smart phone nor have a router I cannot stream. I have Dish with an external hard drive DVR with movies on it and I have a DVD library. When boondocking the DVD use takes half the power that using Dish does so I prefer that. And I suppose you refuse to use one of those new fangled internal combustion engines. Your trusty mules have always gotten your trailer where you wanted it. ;) I just gave away 80 VHS tapes, lol.

RE: Air Conditioner Recommendations

I got the Dometic High Efficiency model and it runs off a Honda 2000. I am surprised that it is not advertised.

RE: Want CD player for new truck

I have a 1997 Class B and it's Dodge radio had a cassette player that died. I had it fixed once and that didn't last long. My 2010 car has a cd player which may be on the blink. I too would like to replace the radio in the class B with one with a CD. But when I looked all of them had much smaller buttons and would make it harder for me to use while driving. I do take a portable sirius radio which is good, but I miss the CD player. It does not have any aux or USB inputs.

RE: 3rd Issue of RV Magazine

I really enjoyed the Motorhome mag. This new one I canceled after seeing the 1st issue. They should have left the 2 mags as they were and not try to cut costs by combining them.
