On the 8th of March 1500 hours Pacific Time, I will be doing a presentation on what I did to install my lithium system. This will be through the Phoenix Cruiser Travel Club (PCTC) Zoom. Contact information on joining this Zoom event can be accessed through the PCTC website. It would be great to have all of you attend and share your great advice, experience and expertise.
I am not an electrical expert but learned much from You Tube, reading online, and from our fellow PC colleagues. I have now had my system in place for about a year and with no issues. I faced the same questions: What lithium batteries do I purchase? What about the converter in my Parallax system? What is the size of the alternator installed on my Ford E450? Do I need a DC/DC charger? Do I need to disable the existing wiring from the chassis to lithium batteries and how would I do this if I installed a D/C to D/C charger? How do you wire the D/C to D/C charger from the chassis batteries to the control unit? Should I change out my solar controller to match the rest of my Victron equipment? How much is this entire going to cost? How long will it take me to install and wire my system? Should I add more solar panels? What size of solar controller should I purchase?
Again it would be great to have many join me on this Zoom presentation. If you are unable to join let me know and I can send you my Power Point presentation which shows photos of what I did to install my lithium system. Feel free to contact me via pm.
