i know what you mean about the foam balls. they are all over in my bus. perhaps i should sweep them into any cracks to increase insulation of hidden areas

that is a good idea, here in a couple months all i should have to do i leave a couple of windows open, and nature should take its course here in Washington State. the bus will be full of water in no time

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

I've been battling the idea of where to put my house batteries, either under or inside. I like your idea of venting a box under the dinette seat for them. Are you going to install a fan for circulation when you are sitting still? And did you think of maybe putting some type of beeping alarm to let you know if you get gasses vented into the box or not?

Hi Doc,
i thought of using a computer fan to vent any gasses from the box, but i have read that since the gas would be hydrogen and oxygen, it probably not good to have anything near it that could cause a spark, folks have also said you should have as little electronic equipment in the battery box as possible due to corrosion. i have access to really good quality computer server fans, im not sure if they make a spark, but i know if they corrode and fail that could short out causing a spark. i like the idea of some kind battery gas detector you mention. i haven't looked into it. if one could mount it outside the box with a probe on the inside that would be great and eliminate chances of corrosion and failure of the detector, if i find one ill mention it in here. as it stands right now my vent hole lines up with the top of the box. the insulation i glued to the box lid makes it line up exact. since hydrogen rises my hope is that its only method of escape will be through the vent hole.

Off grid we use fans to blow air in low and out high and exit. This way the fan is outside the box. A brushless dc fan is most desirable.
