Re: Clark’s hooking up lead and lithium batteries together

all the new batteries will maybe interesting. I have no experience with it, but maybe you should charge the lifepo4 with ab battery to battery loader that does not take more than 8 amps... to protect the ob charger.

Re: 26X closed cell matress pads?

for the easy and the cheapy don't forget this: I still have (since 2011) in my :macm: the stock matrasses. But they are way too soft. You go down on the hard. So I combined it with a 1inch air-matress from wandering-camping that is positioned UNDER the original matrass. Like this you can adjust how ...
