If your window coverings aren't excellent grade, that would be the first place I would start.
We need something like Reddit upvoting on this forum, just for comments like this :DMove those batteries inside like mine and call it a "high tech coffee table" just over from the stripper pole.
Add some color changing LED strips that strobe with the douche music, put that sh*t on youtube.
Welcome to PIMP MY RV, Cinergi Edition.
Time to get a window AC like I did lol. Best thing I did for that compartment. Quite power hungry unfortunately
EDIT: I should add, my batteries are in an enclosed aluminum case with no airflow, and right now the BMS says the temp sensor is at 35* C. I've never heard of degradation from that temperature though. I will need to do more research as well...
I've got 300 CFM of interior air blowing into the compartment. It's nowhere near enough.
Cinergi, while poking around the interwebz, i found this chart for the CATL 280ah cells. Seems the working temperature is all the way up to 60*C. But i havent really found anything else stating degradation from heat in the cells other than the link you posted. Any more info for that?For reference: > 30*C seems to be pretty detrimental, let alone 35*C. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6126518/
Yes, I'm not charging at these temperatures frequently, but I definitely go above 25C frequently and year-round (I follow the weather in the RV). Probably covered in another thread here somewhere and/or would need a new thread, but .. yeah. I get it. I'd get roughly 3% degradation per 100 cycles if every cycle was 35*C+. If it's a handful of cycles, not as big a deal. I feel better. Thanks

I saw my batteries up at 41*C last night when the battery was just about 5% SOC and had a heavy load on it, and you're starting to worry me!
