Lithium Battery Install Help
Hi everyone, Iím a newb to the irv2 forums, but I need some help. We sold our house and are updating a motorhome to travel the US.
We have a 2001 Damon Challenger. I bought a solar system with 2x BB 100Ah Lithium batteries, a Victron inverter, charge controller, etc, but getting into the existing wiring in the coach, Iíve learned some things that have me head scratching. So Iím here for help...
1) what are the issues and work-around with a straight drop-in replacement of the Li batteries (connected in parallel) with the existing coach batteries?
2) Do I need to disconnect the Lithium batteries and take the Battery Control Center solenoid in the engine box out of the loop?
3) How should I handle the battery disconnect switch with Li batteries? Continuation of above question.
4) the generator - starts off the house batteries, should this be re-wired to start off the chassis Battery?
If anyone has any set-ups that work and advice for me, Iíd much appreciate it!
