    Re: To fit a snorkel - Pro's vs Con's

    Have a look at this snorkel, the height makes it very vulnerable to be ripped of by a tree branch, and the excessive bend just after the intake is pretty narrow and sharp, not good for air flow.

  11. Re: Advise as to lithium size to replace existing lead acid

    Just my thumb suck from personal use, you will need a 10kWh lithium battery.

    If you used 200Ah from the available 400Ah on the lead acid (50% discharge) it gives you a 48x200Ah=9.6kWh battery.
