Help - Need someone to install Lithium battery system near WDC/Baltimore

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
  • BMS
  • 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!
