    70 series Toyota Warn superwinch

    The 9000lb warn superwinch Toyota sells for the 70 series is significantly cheaper than the 9000lb Warn winches Arb sells. Obviously with the addition of the winch plate, the winch fits in the Toyota steel bar. I know other winches also fit in the Toyota bar. I hate the look of the Toyota bar...

    Monitoring Solar from Cab

    Not hard at all really, the key thing is only the cable from the battery side of the shunt goes to the negative post of the auxiliary battery, no other cables go to the negative post. So for an insitu install you would take all the current cables off the negative post, attach them to a bus bar...

    What/Where Is The Hottest/Coldest Place You have Lived/Worked ?

    Hottest was drilling an iron ore range west of Cue, WA, got to low 50’s with heat coming off the iron ore. It was hot enough to pour the peanut butter from the jar. coldest if this counts, working in the freezer of the local supermarket, packing the shelves from the inside.

    Could a Revolution lithium have a fan as part of the bms?

    I doubt it, car had been off for 4+ hrs. i initially thought from the sound that it was the arb compressor and that I had left it turned on and it was losing pressure so the pressure switch was activating but I remembered I had disconnected it’s wires from the battery

    Could a Revolution lithium have a fan as part of the bms?

    Hi all, last night I was camped right beside my car and heard a wirring noise multiple times whilst trying to go to sleep (it was hot and two possums we’re having a barney). This was hours after turning the car off and I have never heard this noise before? It wasn’t the fridge, I know what it...

    The thing i can think of is that you might usually charge slower, but sometimes you want to put max amps into the battery?
