Tvan Tvan / Lithium Battery
« Last post by PAH on Today at 11:01:06 AM »
Hello fellow Tvanners. This is our first post since taking delivery of our new Murranji last November. We decided to take the lithium battery option to enable us to stay out in the wilderness longer but we are finding it very difficult to maintain a level of charge in the battery that will sustain us for more than 2 or 3 nights and forcing us to scurry off to find a 240v outlet.
We use a portable 120w solar panel to augment the rooftop panel and are cautious with our power demands. The only appliance running during the day is our fridge/freezer (40L Evakool). We seem unable to gain enough power to balance our usage, even on a good sunny day, and lose 20-25% of capacity each 24 hour period.
What do others do to maintain charge and what is a reasonable expectation for solar panels on a sunny day? What charge do lithium battery users consider a safe minimum?
Looking forward to your informed opinions and suggestions as we have 6 nights booked on Dirk Hartog Island later in the season and at our current rate we won’t be able to do it.

G’day Kell27,
Oops, I meant the camper has an en-suite tent.
It also has recently replaced both decking floor parts; the shocks are recently new and have been used only on bitumen roads.
The camper was serviced by Camperact (02 4624 9911) in January; Peter Fenwick there may be prepared to give you an appraisal of the camper.
Cheers, Guy

Well done TopCat.
They change in size and fittings over the years.
Good luck with your trips.

It should be polyurethane glue.
Not sure how to dissolve it.
Hacking at it with a very sharp knife, if your careful, will do it.
I think there's more than glue holding it together.
As stated, get on to Track and ask Graeme or one of the longer term service people.

All good Jim, I’m happy to share my point of view and hopefully put a bit more of an experienced insight into it more so  than follow a marketing idea, or a concept with no theory behind it, if you know what I mean.

I certainly don’t have all the answers but feel ok with the reasoning behind what I do, those that disagree that’s fine, do what you want to do, but for me the aforementioned ideas work for me  each and every day.

Regards Pete
