Who uses lithium house batteries?

Reading an article about how amazing lithium house batteries are. No adding water, holds a charge for about forever, quicker to recharge and lasts the life of the RV (or 15 years).

Right now these batteries must be as expensive as all get-out or everything would be using them.

Yep, you hit the nail on the head. Expensive. Unless you spend a lot of time running off of the batteries they aren't worth the cost.

That said, if I had the budget I'd do it. I'd be great for cool weather boondocking. Then I could just leave the furnace on overnight and not have to worry about it.

Not yet a mature technology although at least now the disciples are finally telling the truth and recognizing the limitations.

If you cant leave your furnace on overnight you need new batteries and not just lithium.

I actuallly did just replace all 4 house batteries. But i have fridge, ice maker and basement freezer that runs off of the batteries, as well as the "mood" lighting that we leave on for the kids, and a few other things as well. We've got more drawing power on the batteries now than the rig was really designed to handle. I'd imagine it could handle just the 45kBTU furnace just fine, but I don't want to find out the hard way.
