Converter switch to lithium on 2021 Globetrotter?

We're looking at buying a 2021 Globetrotter. If we buy it, I'd like to install lithium batteries. On our 2021 bottom of the line Bambi, I had to replace the power converter board with one that has a switch for either lithium or lead acid charging. Does anyone know if the 2021 Globetrotter has the board with the switch or will I have to swap the board?

The 2021's should have the switchable converter but depending on build date, it may not.

AS tends to phase in changes to use existing parts so early units may have older parts or use newer parts early so late models may have the future parts

Thanks! I was able to get a hold of AS technical support and they said the 2021's do not have the switchable converter. But that might be the party line and some do have it. I'll just have to check, I guess.
