Glad it worked out for you. That's why I did the thread.
Also I am finding my solenoids are getting sticky I think. I'll see them charge the batts every so often (actually just twice in the past 6 months). I'll flip the dash when driving and I see this then switch off then back and it has so far corrected the issue.

Usually they fail the other way i.e. not making contact. I’ve replaced a few over the years.

Was having a conversation on another thread and the subject of lithium and heat came up. Thought I'd update this thread as to why I am concerned about heat in my battery compartment.
Technomadia documented their experience with the heat and lithium. It's in the paragraph starting "The Dark Cloud: Premature Battery Aging?" The Dark Cloud: Premature Battery Aging?

Note that post is from 2015. In the comments they reported much more recently that their pack still met their needs. I don't see any more recent capacity test. It definitely would be interesting.

We installed lithium ion in our Canyon Star in early 2011. I do know that after almost 4 years of use, running the A/C on the inverter when necessary, our pack had over 425AH of capacity (it was a 400AH pack with Thundersky cells that were from manufactured in 2010). I didn't do a capacity test before we sold it last year, perhaps I should have to provide one more datapoint...
