Greeting! Hopefully I don’t start a war here but what is the general feeling on lithium batteries. We got a single 12v Interstate battery from our dealer. I don’t know how many Ah it is because the camper is in storage right now but it was not enough to run the furnace in the fall overnight. My partner gave me the ok to get bigger batteries in the spring. It seems like most people upgrade to 6v golf cart batteries like the Trojans or US Battery variety (I guess some Costco as well?). I don’t know that I want to deal with the maintenance, I also don’t know that I want to figure out how to deal with removing them when in storage over the winter (I don’t have a way to trickle charge them).
It seems like while costly upfront that a lithium battery would be far better for our needs. I know some don’t need a new charger, some do. I am looking at the drop-in replacement type if possible, I want to make this switch as easy as possible and I am not super mechanical. I also like that its basically double the capacity of a lead acid, can’t draw down more then 50% if you want long life?
It’s 2019, the lithium batteries have been out for years. Is it time for us to take the plunge?
