Well, almost killed myself searching through old boxes, but after a few hours of looking, one trip and fall, a few pulled muscles, almost broke my wrist, but I finally found them. As soon as the swelling goes down, I will put them on, and I should be able to replace my RVH BATTS, as my coach batt is working just fine. I'm glad that even at my age(63) I still had it, actually I have 2 of them, one is older than the other, but I think I can make them work, neither of them need batteries, WIFI, net connection, nor Blue Tooth. The older of the 2 is a Captain Midnight, the other is a Jonny Quest, both seem to work great after all these years in hot and cold storage. If it was not for those two Decoder rings, god only knows what could have happened. Thinking of all that could have gone wrong with the LiPo, and the LFP, along with the connections of the FLA, BMS, HVD, SOC, Li-Bim, LA, LiFe PO4, and all the old wires on the BMK and the SIo2, the Knee next to the Bird sys, along with the BCC next to the IRD, and the MPPI. After reading everything, I just went to the kitchen poured a cup of coffee and put it in the microwave (NO BATT needed), made sure that the Knee was nowhere near my crotch, looked around to make sure that there was no BIRD sys. around, took a deep breath and got my LED flashlight to look for the box of candles( NO BATT needed). I also called my DW and asked her to go to Wells Fargo's Bulk Bank and see how many AH's they had available, and what was the charge, because if it's under 13.5, I do not want any.
Where do you find enough room in your conestoga to carry all the oats for your horses? How many MPB (miles per bucket) do you get?

Lol....I feel exactly the same way.

I thought I was asking a simple question. This thread has taught me that these batteries are too high tech for me!

Why are you "...not happy with the performance..."?

That'd be a good place to start.
