We just got back from a whirlwind trip to California in the MH to visit my parents. Left from Eastern NM on the 5th, late in the PM, and didn't get but to Ruidoso the first night. We boondocked at the Walmart there, and even though the temps got down into the 20's, we were comfy and the Lithium batteries performed great. No issues. Still had about 12.6VDC in them when I got up. One issue we had, however, was that using the microwave, on 2 occasions, the 250VDC breaker would pop, even though the Xantrex panel would show only about 1.8KW being used, and it's a 2KW inverter. I hope it's just a fluke, because we've used that microwave several times other than that with no issues. We hit 10 and rolled west until we got to Tucson. Called around, and no Walmart's allowed boondocking, until we called the one on the far west side. Stayed the night there and arrived at our destination near Yucaipa Thursday night. Got a spot at the KOA in Banning. Nice place, out of the way and fairly quiet.

    Depending on the nuke you may be able to run at 90% or even less and get it to run.

    So you were running the furnace and the battery stayed at 12.6 volts heat on all night? My Flooded batteries can not do that. Wondering if they need replaced, 4 years old
