Switz I would be interested in seeing photos as you do the swap. And the other great thing. While capacity is the same you now have 480ah usable rather than 300ah.

Actually, with this new design lithium iron phosphate battery, 90% of the 600 amp hour rating can be used or 540 amp hours out of the 600 amp hour rating. That is far more power than the 300 amp hours one could safely pullout of the four Lifeline GSM batteries rated at 600 amp hours.

The four Lifelines weighed about 372 pounds while the lithium unit weighs 168 pounds (made up of four 3.2Vdc @ 600 amp hour cells at 42 pounds each). The removal the custom stainless steel battery box we made for the Lifelines and the battery weight difference should easily unload the tongue weight by 250+ pounds. The new battery will reside along side of the Magnum under the Classic front hide-a-bed sofa which moves the battery center of weight back a couple of feet from the Lifeline location transferring more of the weight to the trailer axles.

We are also removing the 50 pounds of hot water storage by installing a Truma instant on water heater.

Picked up the Colman Comfortsmart Suspension Chair yesterday from the Coleman Outlet in Foley Alabama. They were having a truck load sale with substantial discounts. This is the most comfortable "camp" chair I have ever set in. Been breaking it in this morning around the house. Also stopped at Camping World and snagged a few more goodies they had on sale.

Sorry, the photo keeps coming out up side down.

I think that is it. I don't see them in Walmart's anymore. I guess I'll be hitting Amazon.
