RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Finished the aux bed tank install, got three more holes through the cab floor with water tight connectors, one for the 14/2 to the fuel pump and two extra for 10 gauge so cord for 120 volt 30 amp in and out for the 2800 watt inverter. Wired the pump timer to the pump and to the low voltage fuse panel in the cab, twist the timer for 30 minutes and it will transfer about 15 gallons and shut off. https://i.imgur.com/Mau4wi6l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/nAZ2gkcl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/zJwp5eDl.jpg

RE: More on LFP Charging

My EVE LF280N cells are rated at 3500 cycles from full charge to 2.5 volt cut off and that is at 1.C in a compression fixture. I am not to worried about charging them up to 100% SOC and using the full capacity. From what I understand if you draw your battery down 20% and then charge it back to 100% that is only 20% of a battery cycle. At 3500 cycles I think for most users they will age out before cycling out, I think there are many more factors that will affect cell life more than using the manufacturer stated capacity. https://i.imgur.com/QOUDoyyl.jpg

RE: Fuel cost in your area

80 gallons diesel last fill up, $495.20

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

Part of the issue is some one new posts and it turns into a 12 page argument, seems like people can’t agree to disagree anymore. Facebook, other forums and grumpy old men would be my answer.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Installed a 51 Gallon aux tank for a total of 87 gallons. https://i.imgur.com/swwIVJjl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/om7gbSjl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/APcxKj8l.jpg Nice clean install! But why all the extra parts and filter? Not down with gravity fill? What’s the top line off the tank for? I wanted a filter to catch the condensation from the metal aux tank before going into the main tank, and while I was at it decided to add a pump. It is on a 15 minute timer and will pump a little over 7 gallons before shutting off. The pipe on top is a vent with roll over valve.

RE: Anyone Cancelling Truck Camper Trips Due to Fuel Prices?

No ,added a extra 51 gallon tank. Instead of using my commercial supplier I am shopping around. https://i.imgur.com/ejl4yu0l.jpg 87 [email protected] $5.85 last fill up, contractor I work with just paid $6.40 in Bellinham WA.

RE: Will a 3/4 ton do

Well you don’t have to be real bright to know when you are over tire capacities, but I guess that doesn’t mean much to some.

RE: Will a 3/4 ton do

If you like messing with your vehicles go 3/4 ton, I towed a 14,000lb gooseneck with a 2013 2500HD and had to add helper springs, upgraded shocks and upgraded tires. My pin weight was over 3000lbs. And yet aside from spring rate, the trucks are the same. Hence the helper springs. The other 2 items you’re claiming are just for effect, since 1 ton srw trucks are available with the same wheels and tires as 3/4 tons and shocks, well, 90% of factory shocks are less than stellar and they have no bearing on load carrying capacity. Nice try though. I’ll give you the shocks even though they can make the difference between a good towing experience and not. I have an issue overloading tires I guess you don’t? My factory tires were 6400lbs and hooked up the rear axle was about 7000lbs.

RE: LiFePo4 voltage under load

BFL says: “IMO the real LFP figures in the OP graph should only go to the "knee" and use about 12.5v as the "end voltage". That would make the times approx” Fair enough, but consider too that in actual practice 12.5v occurs somewhere below the chart’s stated 10% SOC - in my case this works out to around 97ish % DOD… 3 tons I run mine down to about 12.4 on each charge cycle and just let my Redarc re-charge until it goes into float.

RE: Lance TC - lithium - DC-DC charger question

I have pulled 50 amps at idle with my 220 amp alternator every day now for almost a year with no issues.

RE: Seeking Airbag Advice for Lifted F150/TC650

Air bags will not do much if your springs are maxed out, one thing you do not want to do is unload your overload springs it will make it feel like driving on a beach ball. If you are slightly over loaded they can level the load and provide a little support and work fairly well, if too overloaded they will make things worse. I would look at helper springs.

RE: Lance TC - lithium - DC-DC charger question

I use a 50 amp Redarc dc/dc charger on my 2019 Chevy (this system is in the rear of the crew cab) charging a pair of 280ah LifeP04, I ran a set of 1/0 DLO cables from the fuse block on the secondary truck battery to a set of 600amp buss bars in the cab and from the buss bars to a lift gate plug in the bed. I can either power the plug from the truck alternator( I plan on another dc/dc charger in the camper) or the 560ah battery bank. My truck has a high output alternator, it has the snowplow prep option with a 220amp alternator.

RE: AC Quits Blowing Cold after a few minutes

Be careful venting refrigerant, you can get a hefty fine.

RE: GM buying back 6.6L Duramax

Well I just started having coolant issues with my 2019 with 40,000 miles , I need to change the coolant tank and see if the low coolant message goes away. All they mentioned was the L5P so about five years of production.

RE: Not the cells that fail it is the battery Management System!

The thing I like is they will take every amp I throw at them until fully charged unlike other chemistries that charge slower at the top Except that 100% state of charge is NOT a goal for li. I didn’t say 100% state of charge, i said fully charged. Maybe I consider mine fully charged at 90%. You may wish to consider 85% instead of 90% if you want maximum cycles. It doesn't matter to me as Li are not in my temperature zone. The manufacturer specs are 10% to 90% SOC for 3500 cycles, that is in a compression fixture.

RE: Not the cells that fail it is the battery Management System!

Every time I see a thread like this, I go give my 6 volt, wet cell, GC batteries a hug. No BMS. No DC to DC charge to protect my alternator. No worries about ambient temperature. The draw back is having to check the water levels twice a year. Sent from my flip phone............. Richard I have four lightly used Trojan T-105s I can’t find a home for.
