    Upgraded to 6 Lithium Batteries

    Most of you know we like to boondock vs RV resort camping, so battery power is top of the list of important things.

    I was lucky enough to run into a few Heartland folks 2 weeks ago and they got a sneak peek at our battery setup. The Blog and YouTube video are now complete and posted.


    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Great video Jim, glad I got to see it in person. I haven't called them yet but its on my tado list.
    Thanks again for all of that information on the video. It's a no brainer for me.
    I'm going to start with two for now and see how it goes.

    That is awesome. Being I am doing my electrical you have me thinking of putting 2 of these in my trailer for our residential fridge. What are you using for a converter? I presume the inverter is ok but I would need to change the converter.

    Your inverter will have no issue with the Lithium batteries. It will simply put power from them, as it would from any battery.

    Battle Born claims "drop in compatible". I would figure out the model of your converter, then call them. They are amazing to work with.

    I removed my factory converter and now use the Go Power IC2000 as my converter and inverter. It does an amazing job and even support 50 amp on both legs..so the entire RV has power. Click here to open the YouTube video I did for the Go Power IC2000 (they have an IC3000 now)

    ...plus they will work well in the Tiffin you were talking about. Melinda and I have been looking HARD at the Tiffin Phaeton lineup.

    I hate you Jim 🤪, I am leaning heavily to purchasing 3 Battle Born batteries.

    They are so superior on many levels, and the 30% solar rebate lowers the exposure somewhat.
    Still for me $2850 is going to break the bank.

    Three of these suckers had better be enough

    Ah...it's only money...right?

    I was hoping you'd decide on moving to Lithium batteries. After our phone call, I was pretty sure you would.

    Remember to look into the Victron BMV-712 as well. It will provide you EVERYTHING you need to know about your batteries.

    You might start with just 2 batteries and monitor it for a month or so with the Victron. I'm guessing you will be surprised at the amount of energy you'll get from these batteries. You can always add the 3rd on later.

    Awesome video Jim. I just picked up 6 175watt solar panels with a 65amp mppt charge controller. You sure have given some good food for thought. Now if I can manage to put together the funds to go lithium over flooded batteries it would be a bonus. Cheers. Don
