Gliddenwoods Posted November 27, 2022 Share Posted November 27, 2022 I recently had a ceramic coating applied to my Oliver. Because of cold and wet (Wisconsin) Fall weather we made a decision to leave the trailer in the ceramic owner's garage (heated & dry) for a bit over another week and a half to insure good ceramic curing time before the hour drive back to my heated garage. Because the original plan was for a much short stay in his business garage I did not turn off my batteries (as in "short term storage") as recommended by Lithionics. When I went I to bring my Oliver home the lithium batteries' discharge current had been disabled by the "BMS Function". There are two BMS functions which will disable the Lithionics Lithium batteries; "Reserve Voltage Cutoff" (RVC) and Low Voltage Cutoff" (LVC). See page 183 of the 2022 "Optional Features Component Manuals" which is page 9 of 11 of the Lithionics Lithium Batteries manual to read the explanations of RVC and LVC. So.....my question to those who are better informed than me is how does one determine whether the batteries are in RVC or LVC? Both BMS function disable the current discharge so the situation appears the same. However depending on RVC or LVC how to address the situation is different. So, restating my question with a battery with the current discharge disable how does ine determine RVC or LVC? Thanks. 2022 Oliver Legacy Elite II, Hull 1242, 9/26/22 Lithium Platinum Power/Solar Package Tow with Supercrew Cab 2019 F-150 4 x4, 5.0L 4-Valve V8 with 3.73 axle ratio & 157" wheelbase.
