So it was a waiting game as we wanted Kevin to fit the Alternator which arrived on the Friday. It turned out to be a very good, nearly new reconditioned one. Kevin arrived at about 10.30am after his flight back into the country from a job he had to do aboard.
That was fun as we could see all the Watts and Amps flowing through the system and the lithium batteries coped with it all..
While all this was going on Kevin showed us how to use the VE Config which is where you can adjust settings and limits and also turn things on and off.
Straight away you could see it made a massive difference, and it was charging beautifully.. Everything was steady and the battery charger was putting in an easy 35 amps into the Lithium's. When we got to the fully charged state (100%) the VE Bus control unit turns off the charge to the lithium batteries and then a float charge goes into the two dump batteries. This is when we noticed a slight fluctuation on the engine revs, but so much better than what we got with the old alternator..
So Kevin asked us to try it all over the weekend and make sure we were happy with everything, which we intend to do..
We just don't have to worry about battery power anymore and its so hard to get your head round that. So far this system is amazing!!
