Bjohnsonmn Posted January 25 Share Posted January 25 2000 Windsor 32PB We are rounding the corner on completing the renovation of our beloved "Loaf". There are a few things left to complete, one is the location of our DC-DC charger from Victron. The 32PB is a short and slide-less model. Perfect in size for us, but a little tight on space for anything below the floor. I have a Victron DC-DC charger to pull power from the chassis 12v system and top off my house 12v system with LiFePO4 batteries. The options I have for locating the device are limited. According to the documentation, it can get hot and shouldn't be located where there are flammable/explosive gasses. So, that rules out the bay where the chassis battery is located (but that would be the ideal location). It also rules out the inner core of my rig where my inverter and other new 12v equipment is located. Bummer. Where would you locate this thing? It's about the size of a Miriam Webster dictionary and a bit on the heavier side for its size. We replaced the chassis battery with a new style, non-serviceable one. I don't think that means sealed as it must have a breather hole. The question I am pondering: Is the warning about explosive gasses closer to an actual warning with a high likelihood of happening? Or, is it closer to the Pro65 warning that I see when I board a plane in LA saying the area I am entering contains substances known to the state of California to cause cancer?
