RE: What is the correct resting lifepo4 voltage?

14.2 - 14.6 VDC. Rob

RE: "Solar" Sub-Forum

I agree. The other forums I'm on implemented "Solar and Generator" subforums a long time ago. Rob

RE: 5th wheel tailgate

I searched, too, and it looks like nobody has come out with one for the 2020+ design update. That said, we've been full-time for six years (don't stay in one place/move frequently) and I've never damaged the tailgate. You just have to have a checklist for hitching/unhitching. Rob

RE: over filling

Doesn't matter what type of fresh water tank fill system that you have for your trailer, water can still leak past the pump internal check valve, filling the tank. Not quite true. With our system, when all the valves are set for city water the pump is out of the system. Rob

RE: Rear view camera

That combination may not be legal in many states... need to check that out, first. Rob

RE: Lithium Batteries

The OEM converter in your RV will charge a LiFePO4 battery - but not all the way. It won't hurt it though. You just won't get full use out of the lithium battery. I switched out the OEM converter/charger in our rig when I installed the lithium batteries - no big deal. Rob

RE: Flying J frustrations - Alternatives?

Look into the EFS fleet fuel card by TSD Logistics. You'll get a lot more than 6 cents per gallon discount at a lot more truck stops. Rob Yep- but it's for diesel only... the OP has a gas truck Thanks, Joe - missed that. Rob

RE: Flying J frustrations - Alternatives?

This FJ .06 discount card, is it a credit card? Yes. They bill you every month and you pay by ACH draft from your checking account. It works at the pumps in the back so you don't have to go inside. Rob

RE: PUZZLER: Slides & jacks are dead

On our Solitude fifth wheel, the leveling system and slides share the hydraulic pump and motor and use switching solenoids (perhaps the "thunk" you're hearing) to control everything. Rob

RE: Does this file mean ?

Gut3 is an anonymous email service. Could be associated with that. Rob

RE: Trinidad CO to Clayton NM (160->389->551->325->64)

It's all two-lane. Haven't driven that route recently so can't say what condition the roads are in these days. You can spot check them with Street View on Google Maps, but that won't catch small bad stretches unless you're lucky. I used to live in Trinidad and did Raton pass all the time - just did it recently with a fifth wheel. You've got the Duramax and should have no issues with the pass. Rob

RE: Lithium battery and 2000w inverter

What do you hope to power with the inverter? We have a 2,000 watt inverter to power our residential refrigerator when we're not plugged into shore power. We also have two 100AH LiFePO4 batteries to power the inverter and a 300 watt solar panel (with solar charge controller) to recharge the batteries during travel. It's a well-balanced setup - but not enough battery capacity nor solar for anything more than long travel days or power outages at a park or campground. Rob

RE: IVECO Daily: strange towing choice from Australia

Good looking setup - but how does the 3L diesel do and highway speeds? Rob

RE: hydro or electric leveling

Electric has one motor to fail. Hydro has a motor, the hydraulic pump, rams, and hoses that can fail. You can decide from there. The new electric systems have a motor on each strut. Rob

RE: hydro or electric leveling

We've had both. I've experienced a leaky manifold (replaced it myself with part supplied under warranty) with the LCI hydraulic system and had to add CAT anti-stiction fluid to stop the annoying popping sounds. On the other hand, it will lift the trailer off the ground one side at a time to change a tire. The electric system was much slower and I didn't trust it to lift one side of the trailer (not as robust). A couple of pros for the electric systems - especially ones with the new hall effect motors - is that they are more easily user-repaired. Bottom line: I don't know that I'd let hydraulic vs. electric make the decision for me. I would be more concerned about a floorplan that would work for us. Rob

RE: An upgraded option for the half ton Pickup crowd

I agree on the front end - kinda looks like what some of the Lexus SUVs have been looking like the last few years. The design resembles some of my grandkids' transformer toys... Rob

RE: Navigation options

The post above is wrong. You don't need cellular for the entire trip. If you know you are headed to a no cell zone you can download the map before you leave. Otherwise, Google Maps and WAZE will keep the route ahead downloaded to your phone and you will have no idea when you run in or out of cell service. You don't need a stand alone GPS (especially a built-in which is a pain to keep up to date). Plug in your phone and you will have the most up-to-date information for routing plug minute by minute traffic updates and POI information the GPS units can't touch. Google and WAZE will even keep up with temp road closures due to construction which would take a year to get updated in a GPS system. 1) Can Waze be configured to route big rigs around low clearance overpasses, weight-limited bridges, restricted roads, etc?; and 2) how much data on the cell phone plan does Waze typically use?
