24v battery bank?
Has anyone here converted their coach battery bank to 24v instead of 12v?
My Trojan T-105's are near end of life and I have ordered eight Battleborn batteries and I am trying to decide on the 12v .vs. 24v Victron Multiplus Inverters.
There are advantages of switching to 24v bank (smaller wires, less current, less heat, better efficiency, increased capacity on my solar controllers)
But there are still 12v based systems in our coach. Alternator, B.I.R.D., Onan generator starting motor, slide motors, who knows what else?
I can use a Victron 24v to 12v, 70A converter to run most of it. But that won't handle the load of the Onan starter motor. Maybe I could rewire the Onan to use the chassis battery, or install a separate starter battery for the Onan.
What are your thoughts?
