At 23:15 you are showing your electrical connections to the controller, and I see that the polarity is reversed. What's the reason for this? Red to Black, and Black to Red, could cause you all kinds of grief later!

I really hope your not going to stack the second battery up that high. Better to sink the lower one into the floor of the trunk. If the car ever hit something at say 60 mph the forces trying to keep that battery moving forward (into the back of your head) are immense. I always prefer to have no more than 50% of the battery above the floor of the car so in an accident it stays put. Another option is to move the second pack out under the hood. Also helps with weight balance.

It sounds like your potentiometer is switched, when you depressed it i heard a click like a microswitch. since it only has two wires, i bet it disconnects the pot while its not being pressed. that should explain that code

I upvoted this video only for the introduction to the advertising. I would upvote twice if google let me. Maybe I’ll set up an extra account and come back to do it. About the actual video content’s quality though, I have watched all videos eversince Rich’s first, and I’m not sure yet. It’s doubtful content at best. Especially the humor. Doubtful at best. Be aware.

Been watching you since 100 K subs. Still naturally entertaining and educational. IF you want to hit 1 million easy, convert a small RV (class B or C or van) to fully electric. People gobble that shit up. RV conversions always have several hundred thousand followers so BOOM, there you go, 1 million subs easy

21:40 So Rich, you basically replaced the colour (correct spelling for Australia) coded wiring with a system where all the wires are the same colour just so it's easy to diagnose any problems down the track...
