400 Ah battery storage.

We used the front seating area for our 400Ah battery upgrade.

Nicely done. We put our 200 amp hour lithium in the same location of our 28 Serenity, along with the controller and converter. I like the ventilation holes you’ve added to the door. Weve retained that small storage so our space is not vented. AM Solar believe the volume will not require ventilation.

Very nice indeed! We have the same trailer (30’ international). We went for 600ah and due to the size of the Victron batts and multiplus we ended up installing under the rear queen bed in the center isle.

Thanks. Your setup remains the best of all. Where to hide a multiplus is a hurdle for me.

Just for fun we also added a switch to turn on all the outside running lights.

Never argue with AM Solar!

The holes came later after a lot of testing of our original 200Ah setup. That original setup got pretty warm when everything was running. What you see above is a revised 400Ah version that now uses a new Victron inverter and not the original WFCO inverter. This current configuration runs much cooler and may not require cooling holes. Nevertheless the various Victron blue flashing LEDS are visible and we like that.

If anybody wants a free inverter come and get it!

One year later:
The entire setup works great. So nice to to plentiful DC power and not worry about the very poor performance of lead acid batteries.

How many times do we see the guys in campgrounds messing with their batteries and thankful those days are over for us.

The "get out there, stay out there" Battle Born saying holds true and the best campgrounds for us are with minimal hookups.

^^ totally agree. A nice large lithium bank with lots of solar is a game changer full time residential power without ever having to run a noisy generator is awesomeness.
