    Did anyone else run out and buy a 48V EG4 battery after watching Wills Video?

    I've had my eye on them since Poz started reviewing them. 4 of them coupled with a to be determined Growatt low frequency inverter will be great for my new cabin/home

    Power Monitoring: Emporia Vue

    I am planning on selling my home and moving into a to-be-built cabin on a big piece of land (farm) I and my girlfriend own. I'm wanting to go completely off grid, it's just the two of us, and we're not big energy consumers. The big power hogs can be gas (clothes dryer, oven, water heater) I...

    The Safest LIfePO4 Battery Tested Plus A Big Boom from LG Pack.

    I'm not going to lie... I have a (irrational) uneasy-ness about lifepo4 myself.. I know I shouldn't.

    Well.... the cylindrical NMC batteries were frightening.

    Victron DC-DC charger, and feedback before purchase?

    Good to know about the smart model. I didn't realize it had those features. I assume the same deal about overcharging is true if lifepo4 is just connected directly to the 7-pin? In which case... I can just unplug the lithium. I have it in the rear of the trailer on an anderson connector.

    Victron DC-DC charger, and feedback before purchase?

    Update here for future generations and the curious. Totally empty 400ah 12v battery. Attached to 12v 7 pin trailer plug. Pulls about 8 amps max. As some others have said... No real need for a DC-DC converter, unless you want to raise/limit the voltage going to your batteries. I think my truck...

    12v mini air conditioner?

    Totally understand. Even a few DB from a more efficient/quiet fan (which is where all of the cabin noise comes from) makes a huge difference when your camp is 15 feet long and everything you do is less than 6 feet from the fan.

    12v mini air conditioner?

    I'll have to see if I can find someone with one of those "quiet series" units. They're about 1200 bucks... Manageable. I can always sell my current AC, or stick it on my shed roof!

    12v mini air conditioner?

    That's a plan... but those low profile units are SUPER loud. :(

    12v mini air conditioner?

    The "field solution" is to run the heater and AC at the same time. :)

    12v mini air conditioner?

    Regardless, an oversized unit doesn't do much to reduce humidity.

    12v mini air conditioner?

    Unless it's oversized, short cycles, and the fan runs continuously in a very small space. Runs for a few minutes, water condenses on the coils, compressor stops, fan now blows the moisture on the coils into your livable space. Repeat.

    12v mini air conditioner?

    I found a couple that are aimed at camper vans, and built to run 12v. Which I obviously like. https://www.campervan-hq.com/products/nomadic-cooling-2000-12-24v-rv-air-conditioner-9500-btu

    12v mini air conditioner?

    Can't use a window. Not willing to red-green a brand new trailer. I'll just deal with it until someone makes a rooftop inverter style AC
