Battery Charger

I am getting ready to install 2 new 100AH lithium batteries and 400 watts of solar. Can anyone tell me where the current battery charger is and if it is programmable for lithium batteries?

What make, model and year is your RV? Location and converter varies quite a bit.

My converter is adjustable for Lithium Ion batteries, as is the Victron Energy 100/30 solar charge controller I installed.

Your chargers in the bedroom behind the brown breaker/fuse panel thats under the drawer below the coat closet.
You need to remove the panel face plate and the chargers on the lower portion below the breakers and fuses.
I have a 2019 25RDS and the charger is just the standard WFCO junk so no it's not lithium rated.

Thanks! It looks like it slides right out. I would assume that the replacement will mount differently?

I think this link take you to the site that will have the P.D. Lithium charger to retrofit your WFCO unit so it will work. I don't have Lithiums but I did the retrofit with a flooded battery compatable charger for my WFCO and it was textbook easy.

WFCO now has a lithium ready replacement for about $250. The Progressive is about $300+, however I have used Progressive in the past and they have been bullet proof. Thanks for all of the help!
