mmagnum me2812 - lithium

anyone with an original Magnum ME2812 inverter converted their house battery bank to lithium? And, of course, have you managed to use the inverter to charge that bank?
Got interested in building my own battery bank and then realized it might be far more than just batteries ...

I sent an email to Magnum about charging LiFePO2 batteries.
The answer:
Call us at the 800 number below to walk you through the new battery setup. Depending on your remote and inverter revision level there all a little different.

As long as you have the advanced remote panel, you can fully customize the charging routine. Voltages, modes, charge times. Lithium no problem.
Cheers,
Walter

Little surprised your 08' Diplomat came with a 2812 .

Our same yr Scepter came with the 2012 model.

I agree. The 2008 Diplomat brochure says it comes with an ME2012 2000 watt inverter.

The coaches equipped with a residential refrigerator came with an MS2812 pure sine inverter and four extra batteries.

you guys have me thinking my equipment listing may well have an "oops" for the inverter. I'll check it out as soon as I get back home to the RV. (my Carver just came back from the mechanic, so we're at the lake for a few days).
