Does no damage. The battery chemistry slows down the discharge rate until it catches up.
LA batteries come as high recombination and low recombination. The typical difference is the number and thickness of the plates. More plates = faster chemical reaction to accept charge or deliver power...
Poor policy to pass judgement on something you don't understand?
Two cables (of identical length and each sufficiently strong to act alone) to a single attachment point on the vehicle ensure that the winch ALWAYS points exactly towards the pull anchor which in turn ensures that the cable lays up...
Wide track vehicles tend to have significantly more tyre problems on Oz desert tracks because the Toyota size vehicles keep them clear.
Pre OKA, I purchased a 1986 1300L, but changed my mind in favor of something with smaller track and cheaper parts.
The Unimog is a spectacular off road...
What do you want to do with this machine when it is completed?
There are some about in Oz, but in my view Unimogs are simply too big and too wide for many tracks in this country.
Voltage sag (if everything else is OK) is battery chemistry. This is a significant limitation with LA. It can not keep up with the demand. BUT, it will recover if you reduce the load and smaller loads will be fine. There is no loss of total stored power caused by high voltage drop...
You might consider hiring or buying gas cylinders (usually 13kg) when you arrive instead of bringing your own. You may also need a readily available pack of filling adaptors as different countries use different threads.
Electrical power input is 230V 50hz if that is required.
If you are...
My new build is concentrating on serious weight reduction. It includes this "one off" HDPE part.
It is a bumper bar. Cut out of flat sheet with a jig saw, hot bent and then welded.
Stronger, tougher and much lighter than the original steel bumper.
I suggest that one off hot air welded HDPE tanks are no more expensive than one off S/S.
In this case, I took 2 rotomoulded tanks, cut a piece off one and welded it to the other to provide greater capacity. The LH side is for potable water (200L) and the RHS is 70L for grey water.
That is not a problem. The water will run off the solar panels onto that small piece of exposed roof. It only needs a lip of 1.5mm to then collect in a corner. It could be directed to where you want to collect it with a piece of string under some sticky tape.
Stainless is my last choice for...
I am currently building my second fibreglass sandwich panel vehicle in Oz.
The first is now 18 years on the road.
The second will also feature closed cell polyurethane foam and a frameless construction (except for the floor which will be closed cell PET foam for better crush strength).
It is likely that a small Mitsubishi Heavy Industries split will use less power than a 12V unit at full power. They are also powered by inverter motors so efficiency at low power settings will be much better than 12V units.
They will also be cheaper.
They are the unit of choice in Oz to run from...
Delete the roof vents and use the space to maximise solar. Have a sliding window in the bathroom to allow it to stay slightly open while driving. Other windows are best as hoppers for better ventilation.
Now that is settled :)
I suggest you also compare domestic A/C units with your 12V version.
12V stuff like this is a tiny market. Normal household stuff is very high volume by comparison, so is often much cheaper and much better, especially in power consumption efficiency.
Look at the small...
