    For anyone on the fence about Lithium - 100Ah Renogy LiFePO4 for $499

    I don't know how long this will last, but it seems like a great deal for anyone considering LiFePO4 batteries: Battery Hookup These are from a fairly reputable company and have a communications port, which is a big plus for larger systems.

    A little remodeling

    Like many DIY camper builds, once you have been using your finished camper for a few seasons you find what you like and don't like. I found that putting the water tank directly under the sink in the galley cabinet was not the best place for weight distribution and galley cabinet space. I also...

    My Idea of the Perfect Truck Camper Electrical System

    Low cost DIY Lithium camper batteries.

    I have been convinced for some time the lithium batteries were the future for marine and RV type applications and that lead acid's days were numbered. Lithium batteries have many major advantages over lead acid, including 4 times the energy density, much flatter voltage curve and less picky...

    Lithium install in my Hawk

    I just posted on my website my recent adventure in installing a Lithium LiFePo4 Prismatic cell in my camper. A little different from the recent active post by cdbrow1 as my install involves using solar panels. I kept the IOTA installed for those times I need to recharge if power is available and...
