well thats a load of BS. only no good if you camp in the winter and insist on leaving them on the tounge.


Charge an LiFePo4 at -40. Not recommended you say?

To run what I want I'd need 700 lbs of battery. Think I want to move that into the RV when it is -30?


by now we all know what you do and the fact you won't mount them in a conditioned space means there no good for you, that by no means is a short coming of the battery but rather your own unwillingness to do an alternative set up. which is fine, but quite trying to convince yourself and others that SIO2 is better. it isn't plain, and simple, except for one situation.

I think a lot of folks on this thread are talking about a dual purpose battery from places like Walmart and Oreily. (Starting and deep cell)

If you are looking for a true deep cell battery, Renogy has one on sale now from Amazon. Its a deep cell 100 amp hour AGM battery for 200
Link

For a little less money, this one is a highy rated true deep cell battery Link


That's a good price on a true RV group #27 battery..You get what you pay for in batteries for an RV...

Before spending a lot of money on fancy batteries, what are you using them for?

If you were otherwise happy with the old battery, there is no reason to move up to higher end batteries.

This would be common if you typically stay in campgrounds with electricity. Enough power to run the jacks, slideout, maybe a bit of water pump if you stop for lunch...you simply don't need the cost or weight of a big battery bank.

After such a lengthy post trail (over a time…) of what’s been repeatedly flushed out as ‘bogie issue’ silliness, my sense is that it has zero to do with cold weather, LFP’s OR of RV adaptability, and more of a ‘head-fake’ to gain sorely needed marketing exposure for SiO2’s…We’ve all been forced to suffer this nonsense, JMHO…

One nice thing about Costco vs WalMart is the lack of an eighteen year old pimple face expert sales "associate" armed with a cheese grater 100 amp load tester who is convinced despite your battery's dead cell his fifty dollar cheese grater load tester says the battery is fine. (Same with Wal Mart tires).
Even Wal Mart microwave ovens synchronize platter index return to 30 second intervals. A PITA for coffee mug handle orientation. A Walmart toaster pops toast one inch below the slot. It's really a hoot the Chinese junk they hawk.

And beware newest Wal Mart car batteries. If the case looks different avoid it. They are buying from someone else than Mexico LTH battery and that vendor is so bad the Mexicans sneer at it.

How do you guys turn someone’s simple question about the price of a deep cycle battery into your stupid p!swing match??


LOL, I was wondering the same. The OP is in Baltimore MD but I guess he could tow his trailer to Antartica.

Well if this thread was over on the dedicated Keystone forum the 3 overbearing members there would have turned it into a payload issue.[emoticon]


Just say no to the payload police ">

From the first post:

"We are ready to head to Montana next week, from Alberta and today I found out that my battery is pretty much toast, "
