Replaced 5th wheel batteries with 4 LFPs (4 LFP batteries in series) which are themselves in series to provide 9.7 kW-hours at 54 V (nominal). These weigh a total of 160#. It would require about 800# of PbS to provide the same amount of usable power which would overload our tongue weight).Plan to drive the Trans-Labrador this summer (Happy Valley to Cartwright to Blanc Sablon for ferry to Newfoundland) . We shall see how well they work after 1000 km of gravel road.

OMG 16 house batteries are you kidding me, no wonder that thing's got a tag axle ......I'd hate to wire up those puppies

Lets see, mine would be:

only 4 house (still humbled on the 16 )
2 cranking
4 boat
2 car (s)
1 truck
1 tractor
1 lawn mower
1 mule (as in Kawasaki)

16 total and I replaced 9 of em' this year
