Crazy about the Lithium performance!

I was able to conjure up a 115 Amp DC load for awhile until I got bored. Then we charged the batteries right back to 100% with 90 Amps

The cables and fuses started to get warm with all this action.

Turns out the ol' Ford along with the DC/DC converter puts out 13 Amps into the new batteries. Way more than I expected!

Can't test the solar controller because the panels are in shade all day long.

Also the Victron BMV 712 with bluetooth works great.
Now we can finally determine where the current is going.

Some sort of current measuring should be a stock item on all RVs.



Anybody want three new AGMs along with a Boondocker converter and a pile of cables?

Thumbs up

Don't you love it when a good plan comes together and meets or exceeds expectations.
