Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Hi folks,
i grabbed one of these batteries from work when they were being replaced. have you ever seen one? they are 12v 55AH. i might be able to get more later, could they be useful for a battery bank?




thanks
Eric

A typical modest RV battery bank stores about 400-500 amp hours. You would need like 8 of your batteries to equal what is typically done with 2 golf cart batteries. I would say that those batteries are not practical for this application. But there are others here who know more about this kind of thing than me...

if they were free, i would put about 16 in the bus... problem is, wiring for battery to copper connector panels might eat up the free profit

Probably they have been abused (run into total discharge, partial charges, etc). Maybe they will be just scrap. Check before working to install them.
