  1. getting started on rewiring the trailer for a lithium battery and a new charger setup.
  2. Good insight. I think I understand the logic here and I think we are on the same page actually. I have chosen to allow the BMS to do all the cutoff functions (ie: I am not using relays) The BMS I went with has a "separate port". for the charger side. So if I experience a cutoff scenario the battery will indeed be isolated from the inverter via that main 12v line. BUT I should still have a path to my solar charger through the "separate port" on the BMS for recharging... In thinking about this more - I am not sure what would happen if the solar charger is causing an overvolt scenario?? I wonder if the BMS will cut the "Seperate Port " in that case. Here is a picture of a similar(not the same model ) BMS that im using. -The middle copper tab is going to be charger pass through. (ignore that it says "common port")
  3. Well - I ordered 4 x 271aH cells from Alibaba and a 200amp BMS w/balance and high and low volt cutoff. Now I will need to update my prehistoric converter/charger. Probably going to go with a inverter/charger in a 2000watt flavor. (I already have 1000watt inverter that powers about 40% of the plugs in the trailer) but this 2000watt inverter will power everything (except the ac - technically I can run the AC for about 1.2 hours of the batteries but thats just too harsh) Also still need a good Monitor w/ Shunt and a new solar controller that wont make my Lifepo4 cells mad at me.

    so is that socket welded in there or did they rely on the springs to hold it in and gamble?
  6. Any update on yore project? im getting ready to pull the trigger on some cells and make a DIY setup to replace my 2 x GC2 6volts. any issue with these lifoPo4 setups cranking up a generator?
  7. Im due to replace two 6v GC2 batteries. This sounds like a great update. How about temperature though?? Most toy haulers have battery compartments that are either outside on the tongue of the trailer OR inside of a compartment with no floor... so essentially this batteries will exposed to ambient temps. In the high desert that means COLD NIGHTS. Would hate for my heater to quite because the battery is too cold. I just found website I plan to read later that compares my exact setup. cool! https://battlebornbatteries.com/comparison-one-battle-born-lifepo4-battery-two-6v-gc2-batteries-series/
  8. it is agonizingly slow. 56k days. roughly 45 seconds for a click to register
  9. Go bigger with the cement. DG is great at first when compacted well and or even glued but don't count on walking on it like cement with out upkeep
  10. Mission control (wife) and I are talking about it hahah! I am right down the damn street from you too!
  11. I literally just spent 800 dollars on a 4 x 8 plastic shed 2 days ago! Its on the truck from chicago right now... dangit!!!

    He charged me 10 bucks a linear foot for wash, power polish, and wax seal.

    Gotta hit up Ormond Hendricks @ extremedetailing 760-900-8095 Found him on Desert Whips - had about 100 referrals.....so I had him do my 5th wheel. - can do everything all the way up to ceramic coating if you want.
  14. $900 for the kit + uncle sam - then you need charger and 2 batteries - now your at 1300 - then bigger shocks, new speed controller , and drive-train parts
  15. I drove a friends X-MAXX and decided it was time to get back into it... but i got shutdown and check out. $2k for a "toy" is ridiculous the wife says.
