Evening all,

I need some help from you fine folks. I recently purchased a 5th. I would like to add a Lithium battery solution. I have a pretty solid idea of what I want, I just need to find someone to do the install. And I have tried, I can tell you that, mostly reaching out to maybe a dozne marine install folks, figuring that an RV and a boat are functionally idental. No joy at all.

Who can install a Lithium / Solar solution in the WDC / Baltimore area?

I don't mind travelling a bit - I can live in the RV while the work is being done. The vendor, Victron, suggested that any really qualified electrician could put in this solution. I would appreciate any assistance you could provide.

What I think needs to be installed

3k Charger / inverter
Color Controller
Auto Gen Start
3x300Ah Lion Victron
Connection to the truck to allow the batteries to charge going down the road.
Maybe add the solar controller and the solar panels now? It will depend on the overall cost.

The generator is up behind the hitch. The bed is just above that. I was thinking that the Lithiums would go under the queen bed, maybe. Or we could take a piece of the closet, also just straight up from the generator.

Thanks folks!
