Also...I don't believe the chemistry is the same.
Plus, if you charge to 80% might as well use AGM's and save the $$$$ for Camping.
I've upgraded to a Victron Multiplus 3000VA inverter/charger so it does have the correct profile for Li-ion batteries. The issue (if you want to call it an issue) is that it will only charge automatically to 100%. According to what I've read lithium ion batteries last longer if not constantly charged to full capacity. Whether that's a significant concern with respect to RV battery life, as it is with EV batteries, is kind of the point of my original question.
To be clear, not keeping the Li-ion's constantly charged to 100% is something that I'm considering only for the extended periods of time between trips. Obviously, when we're out on the road camping I'll charge the batteries fully so that I get full utility out of my investment.
BTW, my system was installed by the folks at AM Solar in Springfield, Oregon who did a first class job in all respects.
