I've had my eye on this screen on Amazon for a while. It slides into the slot on a Fiamma and comes with a nifty carrying case, stakes and bungees. No idea of the quality but it has high ratings.

Is it possible to lay 2 100Ah BB's on their side in your existing space? The two batteries would then be 13.75" high, stacked on their sides.

Thanks!

So... after the smaller battery charges up, the two batteries will "equalize" - is that correct?

I am planning on adding a second, 50AH BattleBorn to my existing 100AH BattleB ...

Without veering too far off the thread's topic, can I add a 50AH lifepo battery to my 100AH house battery? What happens when you mix two lifepo batteries (both with BMS) of different capacities?

Look on German eBay. Lots more vans over there came with them. I got a pair for $10 many years ago from a guy that was over there for vacation. No more air leaks, rattling, etc.

$13K US seems pretty high for a van that's not running and can't be driven/tested.

Does the seller have the viscous coupler?

Yes, OBDII. 1.8T conversion. A wifi dongle connects the OBDII port to the iPad and I run an app called OBD Fusion. The dongle and app are less than $30.
