MarkMaxPayne - dennish2024 - I hope you can give me some guidance:
I have the Wayfarer with the battery boost button under the passenger seat with the Cole Hersee battery combiner. I really like having that function and would like to keep it. Do you believe the Cole Hersee can continue to be used or will it have to be removed? Would it be possible to install the battery to battery charger down stream from the CH battery combiner (ie between it and the house batteries)? Regarding the Progressive Dynamics converter did you order PD4060LI? Is there anything other components needed to make the lithium conversion work properly?
Because of Battle Born's built in BMS you should be able to just swap out the house batteries without other changes given it is only two house batteries. Was designed to simply drop in. I only made my other upgrades to get even faster charging and some redundant alternator protection. Also my 2018 didn't have a combiner switch (key turned to on always joined them). For your questions I'd call Battle Born and ask. They are very helpful.

Hi Wallace, not sure whether you have Tiffin installed solar, whose controller you have etc.... I have the same battery booster and have retained it. I talked to Battle Born concerning there LIBM equipment and basically the said without it you could reduce the cycles from 5000 to maybe 3000. If you have the GP Electric controller they have just released one for lithium batteries.

All in all, I purchased:
2-Battle Born batteries
Progressive Dynamics lithium converter
GP Electric lithium controller

Hope this helps, I'm sure Mark can be more helpful.

BTW, I am quite happy with the upgrade (so far).
