Re: Anyone tried the Victron 24-12v converters?

Ah I see what you mean. There don't seem to be too many options from first glance but found this one: https://battlebornbatteries.com/product/sterling-bb241235/ I didn't consider another option, using an equalizer, which would allow tapping one of the 24v batteries. Redarc makes a pricey one: https:...

Re: Anyone tried the Victron 24-12v converters?

Thanks for the reply but what's the difference between using something like the above 70amp dc-dc convertor on a regular lead-acid battery, and an alternator? Also, isn't the main issue with larger loads on lithium is the inability to supply much over 100amps? If I have to operate a small winch and ...

Sorry I don't have a link but I'd hope anyone with decent working eyes will see the issues unless this guy paints it and fills it all in with buckets of bondo.

Re: Anyone tried the Victron 24-12v converters?

I'm back at this again but for a different application this time. Ron, do you think the 70A version would be effective as a 12v (lead acid) battery charger as well, instead of just supplying power to devices? The difference from my initial post's intention is I'm going to create a 12v system onboard...

Re: Reenforced Aluminum Sand Ladders

These look like nice versions of that overall design but I'm with them. Weight and material type is a huge factor when it comes to safety and ease of handling. 40 lbs under your arm when you are on a steep 30-degree trail, with mud, loose shale, sand or boulders under your feet, becomes really tough...

The simple plate that Andre has made several times is pretty nice and super simple, light and easy to put on.

Re: Winch breaker and cut-off switch

Never used one myself and I've had several winch trucks and used them all over 25 years, never installed one and I do winch related work every week and nobody I wheeled with had one that I know of either. Realistically you might get a short in some sort of bad accident maybe, but is that going to ha...

Winch recovery slings - US made!

I'm making recovery slings from the same rope my winches are equipped with. These are ideal for winching via a wheel as an attachment point, wrapping an axle, roll cage, machinery, and pretty much anything they will wrap around. Will hold well over 10,000lbs. (Rope's MBS is 18,000lbs!) Made of USA 3...

Volvo thats for sale in Ca...

There's a '75 TGB/303 popping up for sale in Ca., with a Ca. title which is pretty rare. I inspected it today and just a warning to anyone considering it, it's extremely rusted out. I'd give the body a 1 (or negative 1!) it just needs replaced. The guy will tell you a load of crap along with the pit...
