Put in 4 of the 48V packs and took the truck for a ride around the yard, and used the bucket to pull out some small trees. The 12V battery (also Prius modules) that runs the solenoid valves gave out before the main 48 did, so I need to make a 4 module 12V module. The best part is that the small packs only weigh 19 lbs each which makes swapping packs a snap.
