I'm getting ahead of myself, but I have been researching Lithium Phosphate batteries for some time. The pricing is getting closer to affordable and they can be adapted to a standard RV charging scheme. There are still some issues....I'll have an article devoted to those in the coming weeks.

If I could figure out a way to afford and install LiFePO3 batteries today, I would. Huge weight savings, more power, faster charging and deeper discharge levels in a smaller space? What's not to love. Oh, right...the PRICE!
If/Once the manufacturers turn their attention away from the high margin custom car packs and move into some form of "standard sized" production we'll be home free!
Frankly its got to be no more that a couple more years at best before even us camper boys can afford these Li energy storage marvels... Solar, charging Li packs, lasting forever with LED lighting while boondocking all we want... Sheesh I get all gushy thinking about that!
Wow..What started out as a simple 4 Part article on installing MY(your) solar charging system has grown into a 5 Part (6 on deck) behemoth. Lots of good info...nice photos. Comments welcome...I even answer them!
