  1. We actually had Oliver change it during one of our early maintenance trips for stuff under warranty. My wife hated where they had it and I believe they changed it for free. Ours is a 2918 Legacy Elite I
  2. Will these Bright Way Group BW 62000 (Group 27) - 6V 200AH SLA Batteries work as replacement for my Lifeline AGM's? I like their smaller height. https://www.batterywholesale.com/collections/all-batteries/products/bright-way-group-bw-62000-group-27-6v-200ah-sla-battery
  3. I am not concerned with spending money on something I need. I just want a system that is simple, good, and does what I want it to do. The AGM Lifeline batteries really did not live up to expectations. I am happy to use lithium but it gets more complicated. I am, and have been, maintaining the trailer. But not interested in doing it the rest of my life, whatever is left. Any suggestions for a reputable 6V AGM battery that isn't taller that 10 inches? I am happy to pay. And it isn't the money for maintenance, it is the lack of my know how. I do know my limitations.
  4. Upon shore power inspection this morning the controller read 13.7 and the tank monitor read 13.6 I unplugged the trailer and will monitor throughout the day whether the batteries hold or not. Nothing is running, no lights or fans. One concern was the ah readout which said 0.2. Shouldn't that reading instead represent a full charge after being plugged into shore power for over 12 hours? Hmm
  5. These batteries appear to be the best option for us if we need two new batteries (which I should find out today). Let me know what you think. Link below. Plus they are a bit smaller than my present ones which will help in these tight quarters. You all have been so helpful and kind. Thank you again. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F7NTQ29/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
  6. Thanks. That will be the deal breaker for us. Just when it was looking like a great idea. Any added expense at this stage is a no no. I am sure we have the same converter as you. I'm not planning on hauling a trailer around for much longer than four or five years so...
  7. We boondock a couple days then head for more amenities but I’d like to know we could make it for four or five. The price for one 12v lithium is actually less than two 6V Lifeline AGM so yes, I think I want the lithium if I don’t have to do anything but hook ‘em up. I know I change the Zamp controller setting but not sure where the charging profile is.
  8. Great help. Thanks. I just might switch to LifePO4 if all I have to do is change the batteries. Our Ollie has solar and inverter and it was made in 2018. Is it really true? Nothing to do but change the batteries?
  9. Update: We got the power back up and running today, installed the new transfer switch, and my electrician wants me to power up at least twelve hours before shutting down and seeing if the batteries hold their full charge (I am doubting they will). He is going to look at possible options regarding going with one 12V AGM versus two 6V AGM. My wife and I decided not to upgrade to lithium due to present expenses and we will both be happy if we have to replace our new AGM's in four or five years (meaning we got to live and travel some more). I will update as soon as I decide and we see what tomorrow brings regarding the present batteries. I did notice that the two 6V AGM's I had in my Amazon shopping cart were 1" taller than my current AGM's. That isn't going to work as the battery compartment is already way too tight. FYI: The error codes flashing initially after powering up and rotating on my surge protector were as follows: 117; 23A; 60H; and E O. Can anyone translate this for me or tell me where to find this info? I know the last one means everything is OK.
  10. Thank you. Much to consider here. We got the power up and running today, installed a new transfer switch, and my electrician wants me to power up at least twelve hours before shutting down and seeing if the batteries hold their full charge (I am doubting they will). He is going to look at possible options regarding going with one 12V AGM versus two 6V AGM.

  11. Thanks Andrew. My electrician just showed up so maybe I'll have something positive to write about tomorrow. When it rains it pours. I'll PM you if I need you to explain something better. My electrician is pretty sharp and also lives pretty much full-time in his RV on some land outside of Gainesville. He is also going to research some on what battery/batteries to purchase for my situation.
  12. Yep.That's a far as I could get, 11.1 and I know that is also why I get the red lights and blinking. I'll have my electrician test the AGM's but I am quite certain they are ruined. This morning they read 4.1 before I set up the solar suitcase. Four hours later it is only reading 8.9 so the charging is working inside and out but the batteries won't hold a charge or get fully charged or get the controller to settle down. I still don't know where those darn 40 amp fuses are in my trailer from the panels to the controller and the controller to the batteries although I assume they are ok.
  13. I don't like that idea. I do like recharging my batteries with truck between boondocking locations and I doubt I have the people here to help me with all this technical stuff. Maybe I better stick to the AGM's. Not sure what the difference is between a 12V and a 2-6V other than I only need one 12V. Is it the same size as two 6V? I am thinking my trailering days will be over before the AGM batteries quit again.
