Replace Auxiliary Battery with Battleborn
I know there are plenty of threads in regards to replacing these batteries, but I am having issues finding some specific information so I want to reach out and pick your brains.
I have purchased a 2019 Coachmen Leprechaun 270QB on Ford E350 chassis and I want to simply replace the house battery with a Battleborn 100AH Lithium Ion battery I already own. I understand I will only get to 95% charge with the peripherals that come with that motorhome, and I plan to use my solar suitcase to charge the batteries as well ensuring they are fully topped off. Charge controller of the solar suitcase has a LiFePO2 setting. I will be boondocking exclusively.
1 - will I run into any issues with the alternator charging this battery while driving? I am not sure of the alternator amperage yet as I am waiting for the tech from the dealership to get back to me when they are in on Monday.
2 - does the Onan Generator start using the Auxiliary Battery or the Chassis Battery? If it is auxiliary, I foresee that being an issue as the BattleBorn should not be used to start a small engine.
I am sure there are plenty of devices I could upgrade to make this work flawlessly, but that is not in my plans right now. I want to simply replace the battery with the one I have and plan for upgrading other devices down the road when I find they actually make sense to upgrade for the dollar.
Thank you in advance, I hope I provided enough information to get some of your insight.
