Changes for 2022 E-Pro or Geo Pro

Just about to order a 2022 E-pro 20BHS. Dealership says they are building the 2022's at the factory right now, but couldn't tell me any changes in mechanical/ cosmetic from the 2021 year.

It may be nothing or something very minor, but recently with the fridge and the solar upgrade in prior years I am curious what is in store. Anyone have any insight?

Have been looking for that myself out of curiosity since I picked up a G16BH last month. Their website doesn't show anything different either.

Mine was built at the end of January and they probably started using "2022" parts due to shortages etc. without calling them new models. The same place I got mine from had another one in stock that was built at the end of May and looked exactly the same along with pricing and parts description they had on MSRP sheet. I see they have incoming 2022 models but no pics or MSRP.

Have to be careful with some dealers recycling old pictures and descriptions.

Thanks for the insight. You'd think the marketing dept would be all over it touting new advances or lack therof.

It may be too early to make the website changes. We bought our 2021 in August of 2020. I haven't seen any mention of the 2022 changes anywhere.

Mine won’t include batteries thinking about splurge on lithium just not sure on how much AH I need with that 190v panel. Thinking 2x 105ah should last us4 days ish boondocking. I’m new here so maybe there is a good thread already.

Which model are you getting and why no batteries?

Unfortunately I got these and survived 4 days of cloud cover and rain while dry camping (except for the rain.) Fridge, Water pump, water/temp heater, TV, external HDD, phone charging radio and internal/external lights were used as needed.

Can't remember the highest charge but it never got to 100% the whole time. It was typically in the 40s before bed and think the lowest I ever saw it when waking up was 36/38%. Haven't had a day where we were stuck without juice yet.

I haven't jacked into shore power and letting solar do it's thing. Don't like blowing money unnecessarily and hoping to kill them with kind abuse. I like experimentation. I'll feel better having to get new batteries once their useful life has come. I really expect these to last at least 4 years with my abuse. We'll see...

Flagstaff E-Pro 20bhs. Bish’s RV in SLC , wanted me to buy from them but I’d rather source online a higher end battery and get it to them before delivery.

I might’ve misunderstood, but you’ve been running these batteries?

Woops. Should have re-read your first post for model and forgot to add pic of the battery I was talking about.

We have a single 200 AH LiFePO4 4D marine battery for our 14fk. It's far less expensive than two smaller batteries, but it did require a new battery box, but your 20 might have the batteries inside. We have a single 100 watt panel on the roof and a portable 200 watt panel that we can deploy away from the trailer if we are parked in shade.

Doesn't have an Ah rating but is 550 CCA. Depends on how you do your math but could be 192-308 which would take it down to 20% capacity. And have two batteries with the Geo Pro G16BH.

Back on track:

Still no 2022 info.

Those look like regular starting batteries, not deep cycle. Which you want to keep above 60% SOC, unlike deep cycles which are good down to 50%, or even 20% if you recharge right after.

This is what they are based on the top of them; didn't pull one out.

Probably why I'm willing to kill them and see how long it takes. I'm going to abuse them like a red headed....

CCA ratings are useless for a trailer battery. Sounds like you have a dual-purpose RV/marine battery. A compromised battery for marine electric motors or RV usage. Not a true deep cycle battery, like a 6v golf cart battery.

Finally another fan! I think out of all the people on this forum, FIVE know who Jim Leahey is. Every FROG rally, nobody has a clue about the Trailer Park Supervisor reference, and I wear t-shirt proudly proclaiming my title, lol.

Probably not the right guy but the other reference says it's this:
