    Hodakaguy's 4x4 Sprinter Build

    great work as usual. Will the box not cast shade on the solar panel though massively reducing its efficiency?

    Pro-Rig V2.0 - Home Built Compact Composite Pop-up

    I used the same voltage regulator to permanently dim my bedroom light, works well. Interested to see what your heating solution is. Mine (although not plumbed in yet), is a spur off the diesel water heater coolant line with a thermostatic valve in the battery space. Problem is it will only work...

    Ski Bum Truck V2.0, F450 Rough Road RV

    CCGX is great, well worth the money. Have you got victron solar controller too? One thing I have noticed ( I have the BMV 702, CCGX, easy solar), is that the BMW battery SOC is wildly different to the lithium BMS (123SmartBMS). The BMS SOC is usually around 15% lower SOC than the victron. Cant...

    Saurer 2dm 1968 Expeditionmobile build

    Stunning work. One observation, I have a ship bought surecal calorifier which for all intents and purposes is the same as yours. However, the biggest difference is the insulation around mine. It means the tank stays hot for 48h or more. Definitely worth thinking about wrapping yours in some...

    A new vario project

    Are you still running 24v? So that’ll be 200ah of capacity. What’s BMS and charging system are you going to run?

    A new vario project

    Hi, I got them from who were great to deal with. Based in Eastern Europe, so no import taxes and shipping was reasonable at 90 euros. The cells are easy to link, and the SmartBMS can manage 8. Have you considered changing to 12v system and consumers? I know the truck uses 24v, but...

    A new vario project

    We’re putting in 400ah of winston lithium’s with Victron chargers/inverter, and SmartBMS 123. If I had the cash I would have gone Victron everything, but this way worked out much cheaper.
