  1. To check which version of board that I was using I had to remove the cover ( 1 square head screw) and then the cover unclips. At the top left corner is where I took the picture previously posted showing the WiZ/Li settings. https://olivertraveltrailers.com/forums/uploads/monthly_2020_10/IMG_3672.JPG.0f08d982adc35e6fe28251580c169ba8.JPG
  2. John, If you see my post from 3 hours earlier, there is an image of the PD control module jumper with the pins set to WIZ (lead acid wizard I supposed). I simply moved the jumper to the LI side for lithium as directed by the Progressive Industries support team. It is worth noting that the module from my 2017 LE2 was replaced last year and luckily for me it included the capacity for Lithium battery support.
  3. The Battle Born batteries arrived today so I removed the AGMs and started fitting the new batteries while re-using only the existing cables. Initially I tried fit just one of the new batteries but found it easier to install two, as the length of the existing cables seemed to work better that way. The ZAMP and Progressive Industries configuration changes were simple and I plan to test out those changes tomorrow. I will post pictures of the setup once it is completed.
  4. John, Thank you for your reply. I have noted that hydraulic crimper. I still need to choose cable, lugs and tie downs. bhcnb posted a link to imperial supplies which has quite a selection. I had my Progressive Dynamics module replaced under warranty last year and the new module is Li compatible according to Progressive support team. Otherwise I would only get small portion of the new Lithium battery filled when attached to shore power. The ZAMP controller will support Lithium as well with a small adjustment to the settings. I will be in Hohenwald next week but unf
  5. Sorry everyone. I replied to the wrong topic.
  6. ScubaRx, All connections except the one noted above as removed were tightened. Only the two back batteries remain in the circuit. back right = 6.3V, back left = 6.8V front right = 3.9V, front left = 6.9V (swollen on top) I see voltage drop immediately when turning LED Lights on (Main Cabin only) on the ZAMP from 13.6 to 12.5... continuing to drop from there in less than a minute to <12V.
  7. While camping this weekend I found that my remaining 2 AGM cells would no longer lift the trailer. Since I am leaving this Saturday for 10 days, I plan to remove all of the AGM batteries and install a single lithium 100ah battery since I do not have the cable building tools, cabling or lugs yet to install all four. The other three will have to wait until I get back from this next trip. Note: This should be fine for lifting the trailer since the jack has a 30A fuse and the single battery has a max draw of 100A. Any suggestions on what type of materials and tools to get for making the n
  8. Andrew, That has been on my list since I bought the trailer. It is good time to put one in with the new batteries. I believe there were some threads on the older forum with pics and details.
  9. Overland, Thanks again. I knew about the setup changed on the ZAMP but I was unaware of the PD module swap out. I will call them tomorrow to get the correct module ordered.
  10. Thank you to everyone that replied. I am going to cancel the order for the BB GC2 cells. I have measured my tray/compartment and it has inside dimensions of 14"W x 21"D x 12.75H to the aluminum block for the door latch. Overland's photo verifies that the standard batteries work without any modifications, other than the custom cables needed for the connections. Does that black tubing contain the main lines to the distribution panel and solar? There certainly no end to the different types of lugs in the link that bhncb posted. What tooling is needed to make your own battery cables?
  11. I should have asked this in my previous reply. Does anyone have advice on fitting 4 Battleborn GC2 cells in the Oliver Elite battery tray? Thanks, Mike
  12. Hopefully this helps someone else with the four AGMs that runs into similar problems. With the left front cell swollen I decided to take the front 2 cells out of the circuit by removing the connection between the right front negative and the left front positive (see yellow arrow pointing to this lead). Now with solar active the voltage on the rear right and left cells in series is 13.2V. The left front is measuring 6.6V and the right front is 4.2V. I am thinking that this is workable until the Li GC2 cells arrive and can be installed. Mike
  13. I have an appointment at the factory service center in less than two weeks and noticed late last night that my 2017 Elite 2 had difficulty lifting the front up while when I was getting ready to tow it home in prep for a short trip this weekend. Voltage inside read 10V, it was getting dark out and I have the solar package. This morning I opened the battery compartment and it was obvious that the front left cell was swollen on the top. I would install Li batteries at the factory, however, the new Li package will not be available for retrofit until next year. I am hesitant to spend
  14. Hobo, I can't really say if you are missing something here since I only have the single rear view camera. It seems like it would be handy to have a second camera for backing up to the hitch. Rather than starting a new thread, I revived this older one, in the hopes that I could find out if there still was an option to mount a second camera. Mike
  15. To make a long story short, I have one installed camera on the rear of the Elite II as well as a new monitor and an extra camera. My question is should I bother installing the second camera, and if so, where do you recommend I place it? Thank you, Mike
