    What does Luyuan provide that Basen doesn't? I don't see a justification for the difference in price. They both are providing the same batteries, packed well.

    Several of us have used Basen. I don't know about your batteries, but I assume they were also bought from EVE as matched. Basen also warehoused LF280s in CA so you can get shortened delivery times. Cost me less to get 280s from CA via Basen then from China with Luyuan. I received my...

    Lishen 270ah-272ah cell group buy.

    Huh, never heard of such a thing? Did they give you a reason? Do they use a delivery service that doesn't go to Idaho?

    Airstreamer looking for some advice on mounting to a curved roof

    Generally an accident involving pedestrians is low speed and wouldn't cause even poorly installed panels to come off. Even if a vehiicle accident in a crowded pedestrian area, I just don't think inertia would exist. In high speed crashes the panels are probably the least of the worries as the...

    Airstreamer looking for some advice on mounting to a curved roof

    When working with a trailer/motorhome roof, there are trusses to bolt into. I think you were overboard on your install. I am making a rack out of 1.5" square aluminum which will be attached to the trusses and the panels will attach to the square. Instead of four holes in the roof at random...

    Shenzhen Basen vs Shenzen Luyuan Lifepo4?

    You still deal with China. They can sell out of their Shenzhen location or out of the US warehouse. They might have also warehoused elsewhere as well. Basen Like with the other vendors, use the chat function which will get you into sales. I worked with Emily and another user here got...

    Airstreamer looking for some advice on mounting to a curved roof

    Seems the best way to route from my roof to the intended battery location is going down through a closet on the left front of the trailer. When I install the second set of panels, they will be over that location, but I am installing the panels down the right side of the roof, so I will need to...

    Airstreamer looking for some advice on mounting to a curved roof

    My panels will be in a row along the edge of the roof and all interconnections will be done with tiewraps under the rack they will be mounted to. I was only asking about the best way to get from there across the roof, and that would be two wires, i.e. positive and negative. Don't know where...

    Shenzhen Basen vs Shenzen Luyuan Lifepo4?

    I have mentioned Basen (and it is in the title) in many posts here and that they have matched EVE LF280 batteries domestically for less than buying from some vendors in China. Another user on here just received 8 cells from the same vendor at my suggestion. He is thrilled with them as I was...

    Airstreamer looking for some advice on mounting to a curved roof

    I found a company, Electriduct that makes a UV resistant wire loom tubing but only in black. They make white tubing, but not UV resistant. Compared to having red and black cables on the roof, a black wire loom isn't horrible. I don't know many people who are 10' tall and will see it :)...

    Airstreamer looking for some advice on mounting to a curved roof

    Chris was replying to my question about attaching the PV cabling to the roof, not to the panels. The white roof wouldn't be as hot so adhesives inappropriate for the back of a solar panel still could be ok for the roof. Chris: Is the PV cable in your picture regular PV cable as it isn't red...

    So Eternabond isn't SW compatible :) What is the preferred or suggested method to adhere the PV cables to the roof other than when I can tiewrap them?
