Using and Storing the Travato’s Volta Power Systems Pure3 Lithium Energy System in Extreme Conditions

The Winnebago Travato 59KL and 59GL are equipped with the Pure3 Energy Management System featuring the most powerful, durable and easy-to-use lithium energy system in the industry. This best-in-class system is built in the U.S.A in partnership with Volta Power Systems. Pure3 is built with advanced engineering and a simple user interface so you can have confidence and peace of mind as you travel down the road. Designed for reliability, the Pure3 system makes replenishing power fast, simple, and available through multiple charging options. In mild and extreme conditions the Pure3 Energy System can meet all of your power needs without requiring power hookups or the use of a generator.

Pure3 Energy Management System

Usage in Extreme Temperatures

The lithium battery pack is in a sealed and insulated compartment. Temperatures in the compartment are regulated by the interior temperature of the motorhome.  A good rule of thumb is that if you as the coach owner are comfortable inside, so is your Pure3 lithium pack

The Travato’s Volta Power Systems Pure3 Lithium Energy Pack is sealed in a battery compartment that is heated and cooled with an environmental fan:

  • Fan will turn on at 59°F (Heat Mode) or 110°F (Cool Mode).
  • Fan will turn off at 68°F (Heat Mode) or 90°F (Cool Mode).

The Pure3 pack is discharged as required by the load and should only be used around the following conditions:

  • High Temperature Limit: 135°F
  • Low Temperature Limit: -4°F.

Note that if High Temperature Limit is reached, the pack must cool to 126°F before discharge can continue.

As with all lithium batteries, charging can occur in a wide variety of climates, but as with any battery it does have its limits

  • High Temperature Limit: 117°F
  • If High Temperature Limit is reached, the pack must cool to 109°F before charging will resume.
  • Low Temperature Limit: 37°F
  • If Low Temperature Limit is reached, the pack must heat to 43°F before charging will resume.

Storage

As with any storage system, like batteries, fuel or water tank, preparations should be made to protect the life and performance of the Volta Power Systems Pure3 lithium power system when not in use.

  • Charge the Volta Power Systems Pure3 lithium energy storage system to greater than 50% SOC as indicated on the SOC gauge in the vehicle.
  • Turn OFF all vehicle electrical features powered by the Volta Power Systems Pure3 lithium system. This includes DC and AC electrical features in the vehicle as well as the inverter/charger by their control switch or display.
  • With the vehicle engine off and the shoreline unplugged, press the Volta Power Systems Pure3 lithium energy storage pack ON/OFF button. When you turn the button off, the green light on the button may stay on for a period of time while the system shuts down all components. This can last up to a couple minutes. The gauge may blink blue momentarily during this time. You will know the pack is properly shut down when the lights on the button and gauge are completely off. At this time power should no longer be available from the system. The Volta Power Systems Pure3 lithium energy storage pack is now deactivated and the power distribution devices are off.

A few other notices you should be aware of during storage:

  • Volta Power Systems recommends the Pure3 pack be turned on every 3 months to ensure the state of charge is at 50% or above
  • Overnight temperatures in storage can go to as low as -40°F during storage so long as the average temperature for any three month time period does not exceed the temperature range of -4°F to 113°F

An Overview of the Maxum Chassis and Freightliner V-Ride

The perfect diesel-pusher experience begins starts with a solid base, and Winnebago’s exclusive Maxum Chassis provides the ultimate framework for an unsurpassed ride in a Class A Diesel motorhome. Winnebago’s engineers worked closely with Freightliner Custom Chassis – the proven leader in diesel motorhome chassis – to create the Maxum Chassis: a stronger, better performing chassis. The Maxum Chassis sets the standard for diesel-pusher chassis with its lowered-rail frame providing better handling, a smoother ride, and incredible strength. In fact, the Maxum Chassis is seven times stronger than a raised-rail chassis which minimizes chassis flex and twisting. To top it off, the Maxum Chassis’ lowered-rail design increases the basement storage height allowing for pass-thru storage with room for slideout trays.

Winnebago maxum chassis

In conjunction with the exclusive Maxum Chassis, Winnebago offers Freightliner Custom Chassis’ V-Ride single axle suspension rated at 24,000-lbs. Freightliner Custom Chassis V-Ride is designed for luxury motorhome owners who want the ability to carry more gear, the freedom to equip their interiors with premium amenities, and a comfortable, confident driving experience.Freightliner Custom Chassis V Ride

Benefits of FCCC V-Ride –

  • Increased towing capacity
  • Quik-Align® allows for easy axle alignment without the use of shims
  • V-rod connection dissipates suspension forces, reducing stress for greater durability and longevity
  • U-Shaped Assembly – The transverse beam integrated with the trailing arm form a single-piece U-shaped assembly – enhancing stability at all speeds
  • Consistent Handling – The V-rod connection and U-shaped assembly design result in superior roll stability and more predictable handling in all road conditions, giving motorhome owners a confident driving experience
  • Smooth Ride – Large volumetric air springs and premium Sachs shocks deliver the smoothest ride available in a motorhome

FCCC V-Ride vs. the Competition –

FCCC has the Best Class A Ride

  • FCCC has a custom-built drive suspension by FCCC-engineering
  • Competition has an off-the-shelf truck suspension with swiveling bushing

Stability for All

  • FCCC suspensions are rated from 17,500 to 24,000 lbs. and designed exclusively for RV usage
  • Competition uses a generic truck/bus axle configuration

Driver Control

  • FCCC’s V-Ride is the only suspension that controls the weight of a top-heavy vehicle – giving control and confidence to the owner for the life of the coach.
  • Competition is still using technology that FCCC stopped using in 1999.

All motorhomes built on the Freightliner Custom Chassis – including the Maxum Chassis – qualify for Winnebago’s Carefree Diesel Living warranty. This program extends the Winnebago warranty on our diesel pusher lineup —  all built on Freightliner chassis — to an industry-leading 3 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Winnebago Travato 59KL and 59GL Ground Clearance and Climate Control… The Story

Based on the powerful, fuel efficient ProMaster chassis, the Travato has been at the forefront of the van life revolution since its launch.  Estimated to achieve 18 to 22 mpg highway, at only 21 feet long the Travato offers all of the comforts of home in a nimble, efficient van. The Pure 3 Volta Power Systems automotive grade 48V energy pack provides 8,700 watt hours, nearly double that of Roadtrek and more than Coachmen.  The energy pack is watertight,  durable with the steel housing being the safest on the market, and batteries are climate controlled.

One question we often get is if the ground clearance has changed in the Travato 59KL and 59GL with the lithium system. The answer is no, the ground clearance remains the same at 7.25-inches to 7.5-inches in the 59KL and 59GL as the 59K and 59G.

WATCH OUR VIDEO ON THE TRAVATO 59KL AND 59GL GROUND CLEARANCE AND CLIMATE CONTROL HERE.

The main difference between the Travato 59K and 59G and their lithium-powered counterparts is the climate controlled box that houses the Pure3 Energy Management System automotive grade 48V energy pack from Volta Power Systems. The climate controlled box is mounted between the two rear wheels and is protected from road debris in a watertight and durable steel housing that is the safest on the market. The energy pack’s steel housing is also heated from the Truma Combi Eco Plus heating system.

The Travato 59KL and 59GL Pure3 Energy Management System Pros and Cons

Winnebago released a lithium-powered version of the Travato available in the 59GL and 59KL floorplans. The Winnebago Travato 59KL and 59GL floorplans are equipped with the Pure3 Energy Management System the most powerful, durable and easy-to-use lithium energy system in the industry. This best-in-class system is built in the U.S.A in partnership with Volta Power Systems.

Winnebago Travato Pure3 Energy Management System Pros and Cons

WATCH OUR VIDEO ON THE TRAVATO 59KL AND 59GL PURE3 ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM PROS AND CONS HERE.

For guests debating between the lithium-powered 59GL and 59KL and the traditional Winnebago Travato 59G and 59K it comes down to the incremental cost of lithium vs. traditional power. The Pure3 Energy Management System is an additional cost of $19,000.

The Winnebago Travato 59KL and 59GL with the Pure3 Energy Management makes sense for guests who are looking to camp off-the-grid for extended periods of time and do not like the noise of the generator in the traditionally-powered Travato.

The Pure3 System provides users with 30 AMPs of 110V A/C all the time, anywhere. Allows for owners to operate the air conditioner from stored energy and you can run ALL your appliances while driving. When used in combination with the Truma Combi Eco Plus, the Pure3 system can electronically heat the coach and water, reducing the use of LP. The system also has a quick charging functionality that enables you to charge up the system in approximately 2 hours. The Pure3 System available in the Winnebago Travato 59KL and 59GL does not have a generator therefor is extremely quiet to run, so you will not have the added noise of a generator running if you are in warmer climates and require the air conditioner.

At Lichtsinn RV we stock both the lithium-powered Travato and the traditionally-powered Travato. If you have any questions regarding the Travato and which type is right for you please reach out to one of our factory-trained sales consultants at 800-343-6255 and they are able to answer any additional questions.

Top Questions from the Winnebago Forza Webcast

In a recent webcast, Ron Lichtsinn reviewed the 2019 Winnebago Forza. We compiled a list of our top asked questions. Check them out below –

In our July webcast, Ron Lichtsinn discusses the 2019 Winnebago Forza Diesel Pusher – Watch it here.

What floorplans are available in the Winnebago Forza?

The Winnebago Forza is available in four floorplans – the 34T, 36G, 38F, and 38W. The Forza 34T comes with dual slideouts, a mid-coach bath, RestEasy Loveseat and BenchMark Dinette make the 34T perfect for couples or small families. The Forza 36G features triple slideouts, lots of interior storage, elegant and spacious living areas highlight the versatile 36G floorplan. The 38W is the newest Forza floorplan offering, choose from a queen or king walkaround bed, enjoy a double sink in the master bathroom, and relax on the TrueComfort+ Sofa. The largest Forza floorplan, the 38W includes two full baths, the bunk bed/wardrobe system, a private master suite, and large living spaces make the 38W ideal for larger families or anyone who enjoys a little extra elbow room.

What are the key differences between Class A Gas and Diesel? 

  • Power – The Forza has 700-lbs. ft. of torque or power which is 52% more torque than the most powerful gas chassis. Increased power allows for an increased cargo carrying capacity.
  • Ride – In Class A Diesel coaches, like the Forza, the increased power provides a smoother ride for the driver and passengers compared to a Class A Gas motorhome.
  • Sound – In Class A Diesel coaches, like the Forza, the diesel engine is situated in the rear of the coach compared to Class A Gas coaches that have the engine right underneath the cab area. The engine howl in the Class A gas has been decreased in the last few years, but there is a noise compared to the Class A Diesel.

 

What is the V-Ride and is it available in the Winnebago Forza? 

Yes, the Winnebago Forza features the Freightliner V-Ride. The V-Ride is the first-ever single axle suspension rated at 24,000 pounds, V-Ride is designed for luxury motorhome owners who want the ability to carry more gear, the freedom to equip their interiors with premium amenities, and a comfortable, confident driving experience. The V-Ride features:

  • Increased towing capacity
  • Quik-Align – allowing for easy axle alignment without the use of shims
  • V-rod connection dissipates suspension forces, reducing stress for greater durability and longevity
  • U-Shaped Assembly – The transverse beam integrated with the trailing arm form a single-piece U-shaped assembly – enhancing stability at all speeds
  • Consistent Handling – The V-rod connection and U-shaped assembly design result in superior roll stability and more predictable handling in all road conditions, giving motorhome owners a confident driving experience
  • Smooth Ride – Large volumetric air springs and premium Sachs shocks deliver the smoothest ride available in a motorhome

Does the Forza have engine brakes or exhaust brakes? 

The RV industry only utilizes exhaust brakes This braking system actually closes down the exhaust path and it stops the gases from being eliminated on the exhaust pipe. As a result, back-pressure is built in the manifold and in the cylinders, making the engine work backwards and subsequently slowing down the vehicle.

What is the suggested engine break-in period for a Diesel motorhome?

The suggested engine break-in period includes no towing for first thousand miles and to drive varying speeds in that first thousand miles. This allows for the cylinders to seat themselves in a new power train. This period does differ than how delivery drivers will transport your new Winnebago to your dealer and you can learn more about that here.

What is the Winnebago SuperStructure and does the Winnebago Forza have it? 

From Winnebago’s smallest Class C all the way up to a Grand Tour, all Winnebago RVs are built to Winnebago’s legendary SuperStructure Construction design. Winnebago’s SuperStructure design includes – interlocking joints, laser cut tubing, a fiberglass roof (with the exception of Intent, Outlook, Porto and Vita), Thermo-Panel sidewalls, embedded steel, structural aluminum framework, and E-Coated steel components.

Does the Forza have Freightliner’s New Opti-View Dash? 

Yes, the Forza does have the Freightliner Opti-View Dash. The Opti-View dash takes the RV driving experience into the future with the industry’s first fully integrated, all-digital LCD instrument cluster. Designed in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz, OptiView is inspired by the current S-Class dash. This user-friendly system features a bright, anti-glare display, touch screen radio and input operation, camera system views and Bluetooth steering wheel controls. The Opti-View Dash features:

  • Bluetooth connectivity – iOS and Android compatible
  • Fully integrated with 360° camera system
  • Touch screen controls, intuitive menu
  • Auxiliary, USB and Bluetooth inputs
  • Multimedia system for on-demand video playback capability (only engages when vehicle is not in motion)
  • Easy-to-read interface with anti-glare display, bright graphics, and clear fonts, colors and menu structure

What features in the Forza can’t be powered off batteries? 

The Forza features a 2,000-watt inverter/charger with a remote panel and a coach battery disconnect system. The inverter works to switch 12-V power off the Forza’s RV batteries to 110-V electrical power. In the Forza, all the outlets and appliances with the exception of the air conditioner, washer, dryer and fireplace are powered off the inverter.

What is the warranty on the Winnebago Forza? 

while some other RV manufacturers, like Tiffin are turning coaches older than 4 years away from their service facilities, Winnebago will be there for you, today, tomorrow and for years to come.  The Winnebago Carefree Diesel Living Warranty extends the Winnebago warranty on our diesel pusher lineup —  all built on Freightliner chassis — to an industry-leading 3 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.  Winnebago has always stood behind its products, and for anyone who is concerned about service, this program clearly demonstrates the confidence we have in our diesel pusher lineup!

The Winnebago Travato 59KL and 59GL’s Pure3 Lithium Power System by Volta 

The Travato 59KL and 59GL feature the Pure3 Lithium Power Systems by Volta. The Pure 3 Volta Power Systems automotive grade 48V energy pack provides 8,700 watt hours, nearly double that of Roadtrek and more than Coachmen.  The energy pack is watertight,  durable with the steel housing being the safest on the market, and batteries are climate controlled.

The Pure 3 provides complete 30 AMP whole coach electricity using a 3,600 watt pure sine inverter. The Travato’s dedicated 58 volt alternator, or under hood generator, is twice as powerful as competitors. Its compact design keeps it out of the way of curbs and road debris and the auto start and high idle control significantly extends air conditioner run time.

The MPPT solar controller provides best in class solar absorption, up to 30 percent better than competitors, giving you more off the grid performance.

Simple, seamless operation with one touch button controls incorporate automatic engine start when the battery is low and can recharge a fully depleted system in approximately 1.4 hours.
