    Hi, How are you? I am interested in converting my 2018 Mercedes Airstream to Lithium batteries. Please advise me as how to proceed or get in contact.

    Best, Rob

    I was discussing upgrading my 2016 Airstream Interstate from AGM to Lithium and a friend mentioned you might be someone to do the work. I do not want to upgrade the electronics or solar, just the BIM and add 4 Battleborns in the rear under the rig where the AGM's are currently mounted. As I am not clear about how to install a lithium compatible BIM to protect the Sprinter Alternator, and as I need a vehicle lift to get under the rig to change the batteries, this is not a do-it-yourself job for me. Is this something you would do. I am in Key Largo, Florida but likely out your way in the early spring (April). Thanks much - AIJoe here on Airforums, or Joe Harris 305-393-2504

    Hello Ronnie,
    I am about to remove my watertank on a 2014 23FB. Have a leak around the collar of the tank fitting that goes into the tank (plastic). Not the outside plastic value. I can see it on the inspection hole. i put on JB waterweld and it lasted a little while but it cracked and it started leaking again. I thought i should either remove the tank or bind some good soft plumbing putty that might hold. I'd like to discuss it with you when you have a moment. Please feel free to text or call me at 650-722-3344 (pacific time).

    Roll me away here- thanks for replying to my post about my solar connection. I’ll change the wire routeing to stop at the pair of agm battery’s we have inside, under the fridge. The wires go right past them anyway when they routed them over to the power center.
    I do enjoy your comments and help to the airstream community, here on the forums and elsewhere. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

In this section of our series on solar power, we will discuss the installation of the first half of the solar system. We are going to put our plan into action and install the rooftop components of the system. The rooftop components will consist of the Renogy Solar panels we purchased, a combiner box, wires to carry the power the panels produce to the controller, and a panel disconnect switch.

In the first 3 sections, we covered What Is Solar Power, What Parts Are Needed, and...

If you’ve been following along through Parts 1 and 2 of this series then you should be ready for Part 3: how much solar do I need?

We will discuss sizing your solar system to meet your power consumption needs. Properly sizing your components and assessing your power usage will ensure your solar system meets your needs. This topic can be very in-depth and complicated. I will do my best to be informative and not overcomplicate things.

Buying a couple of solar panels and...

Well, here we go. You have made the decision that solar is right for you and you are ready to get started. Jumping into the solar world headfirst can be like trying to swim in quicksand. With so much technology and so many different products out there, it can get overwhelming fast. In this article (Part #2), we will break down a basic solar charging system into the components needed and what function they play in the overall system.

First, let’s make a list of what components that...

I am going to make an effort at tackling the huge topic of solar. Solar is a relatively simple system that is often complicated to the point that people believe it to be above the average DIY person’s skill level. I do not believe that to be true. I believe that with basic electrical skills anyone can install a functioning solar charging system if they deem it necessary. For your safety, if you do not have a basic understanding of electricity or electrical systems, please enlist the help of a professional....
