Don't know what items 35-38 are but here are photos of our retrofit.

I am totally wrapped in the lithiums

Mate, ring Rod at EV Power, he will tell you what he recommends.

I have Xantrex eLite monitor, but high alarm set at 14.6V and low alarm at 12.2 V,
overly safe settings but an early warning to keep an eye on them.

Your set up looks great.

Maybe suggest that you clip/fix the cables where they connect to terminals to help take any pressure off the connections in rough conditions. You could also put a bar across the terminals on the relay of the BCU, the same as the other side, it will spread the load better.

Cheers Col.

I have just had a Victron BMV700 installed after my first Victron failed.

I know nothing about now to set it up, so you are way ahead of me.

Is there a setting in there, that tells you how many amp hours are left in the batteries ? I put into it, that I had 320AH.

Terry, the chap who installed my lithium, has moved 800km away. I cannot get him to set it up for me and there seems to be no person in Sydney thst knows anything about lithium set-ups.

Thanks,

Willie.

Willkie,
I have just left Terry, do you want his contact details?
They normally come with an instruction book.
Cheers

Hi, You might try ringing Retrolooms, One of our sponsors. They are Victron & Enerdrive dealers, and electrical engineers. They also sell batteries of all sorts. As members we might try clicking on all of our sponsors sights to see what they do and maybe get some useful info off them. And with a bit of luck support for them. They pay to support us so we need to support them. If you double click on the scrolling sponsors list at the bottom of the log on site you will see them. Some give info about themselves. Click on "about me".
Hope that you get some useful info off them if you decide to call.
Good Luck Chauffer.
Regards,
Geoff.
