Did it on our trailer but it has only been tested down to 10F so far. I'm hoping to get it down lower this year.
All Upunor PEX water lines are slopped toward the low point drains. Valves for the low point drains are in heated space with the PEX running out the bottom.
Tanks (2-90gal) are...
Xantrex has a heated battery as well.
The Relion heater is 10 amps for a 100Ah battery.
It would be nice if they provided the Ah needed to keep the battery above 30F at a specific temp, say 0F... but maybe they don't want to do that. Guess one could stick it in a freezer and give it a go.
1/32" cutoff wheels will make things easier... also great for splitting tac welds cutting the floor panel and aluminum.
Sorry don't know your experience with grinders so I'll add......
Be careful not to stress the center of the wheel or you'll have I've seen pcs stuck in the wall 20' away...
Here's a thread on it.
For batteries in a vehicle it would be nice to have more than 1 (top of the battery) place to pick up the temp and an insulated box will require cooling in the summer.
I needed 4 MRBF..... didn't want to spend the $$
Max voltage on a 187 is 48VDC. It will work on the output.
If your going with a 69V Panasonic panel you'll need a BlueSea A series breaker or Midnight Solar breaker.
If venting for heat/hydrogen isn't nessary then there's no reason to enclose battery(s).
I worked on system that have battery rooms with the batteries sitting on shelves or lined up on the floor. Some have rubber/vinyl boots protecting the terminals others don't.
I agree. The weight and size are the big advantages. Efficency also when charging by engine/generator but I've not found it so with solar. Mind you our solar is oversized compared to the loads.
I disagree with switching it to another vehicle. When it come time to change there will be new/better...
Using it as much as possible will fill wire runs a knock outs quickly. Fore example 2- #10 (30amps) wires in a duplex cable take the same amount of space.
In addition to what DaveinDenver says...careful the weight/tension of the wire does not cause screws to back out.
I've used 4ga to #10...
I don't know why people think CO doen't have an affect because they haven't died. People should think of CO like it is VOCs, cigarette smoke or asbestos.
As these types of heaters get dirty with age the CO increases.
