.. I leave on my bus trip on the 20th.  I can get someone to help install a battery, but they aren't going to be willing to crawl all over bus to install cables to one of the battery banks. 

     Hope you're feeling good soon Brian.  Just takes a while.  Best wishes.

Nothing wrong with doing a review for a company. Especially when it is something important to keep track of.

  Pretty good, and they refer to old Volvo's as "bricks", these should be referred to as Double Bricks. I doubt that they would try those maneuvers with a full load of passengers, but, nonetheless, they did pretty well.   

    Yeah, you just can't lean 'em over ...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-fZA1NJtPA

    Hi;
         I agree with Geoff, on both points.
                                 Merle.

Sorry for the double post. Tapatalk has been crazy lately. I am still going to post a full build page but I haven't had a spare moment to do it yet

One of my thoughts on having a separate battery for the generator is I can start the generator and then use a battery charger to charge the main batteries if need be.

It would cost just as much for cables to one of my battery banks as it would cost for a new battery for my generator.  One of my issues right now is I have having hernia surgery this afternoon and won't be able to lift over 20 pounds until Sept 22nd.  I leave on my bus trip on the 20th.  I can get someone to help install a battery, but they aren't going to be willing to crawl all over bus to install cables to one of the battery banks.

Just to show you, My V730 on partial pedal will upshift at 1600 and come down to 1100. Full pedal shifts occur at 1900-which I like, since I can always hold the transmission in with the shifter for higher RPM.

As long as the converter has a stall of around 1600, both an 8V-71 and the Series 50 have 2100rpm engine speed. With only 4 gears, the programming of either engine will work fine.
When I had my HT740 put into my truck, they used the soft shift option. It shifts from 1st converter to 2nd converter to 2nd lockup as normal, but when it shifts from 2nd to 3rd, the converter unlocks during the shift to make it smooth then relocks up when in gear. 3rd to 4th also does this. Good Luck, TomC

I do understand the politics involved, but the money used to be the tax payer's, and it is now Tesla's, and it is meant for charging their cars, as a benefit of ownership, not for an RV to mooch. That is why they have proprietary plugs, that would be difficult to duplicate.
