EcoTrek LiFePO4 battery system in a Class A?

I have the chance to pick up a couple EcoTrek 200ah lithium iron phosphate battery modules that came out of a Roadtrek Zion.

I'm building a 12V solar system for my 2011 Georgetown 350TS Class A which currently consists of:

- Victron Multiplus 12/3000w hybrid inverter
- Victron Energy SmartSolar MPPT 100/50 solar charge controller

I'm planning to add:

- Victron BMV-712 Battery Monitor with Battery Temperature Sensor
- Victron Color Control GX Monitor
- 4x 175w RENOGY MONOCRYSTALLINE SOLAR PANELS

Is there any reason these EcoTrek battery packs wouldn't work?

Thanks!

As long as they have their own built in BMX, which I think they do based on the Roadtrek manual, then they should work fine.

Do try to verify the battery's condition. Roadtrek has had all kinds of missteps with the implementation of lithium batteries. The early years especially were very expensive for both owners and RT to correct or at least try to mitigate the problems.

Quite a bit of info in the class B forums. Not sure if a direct link is allowed to another forum. Google or Duck Duck Go are your friends.
