Well, Hey Y'all, I'm a long time camper from age 8-years old, Tents, PopUps, Class A's Forest River Reflections and Winn Tour, today in-search of Coachmen Galleria with Li3 as I'm still in the information and gathering stage. I have long loved the idea of quit camping, with no running Generator and worrying about carbon monoxide.

Today I'm still enjoy short camping times outdoors, So my road trips I love Football, Softball, and Basketball and sporting events along with a park, Rally, Road Trips with stays in Hotels along the way. I have been all over the Southern States as our college team plays in the SEC. Have been many times to CA, UT, AZ, TX, GA, LA, NM, AL, and VA.

I am looking to learn as much as I can about Lithium, XantreX, Solar. Some help with the Northen States and that place called Canada. All Park info and suggestions welcomed.

to the Forum from Alaska!

I was going to go with XantreX but went with Samlex instead because of reviews. Samlex is made in Taiwan, XantreX is made in China.
Samlex EVO-2212 Inverter/Charger has input for Shore, Generator & Solar. It has worked well with my Battle Born LiFePO4 Batteries. They gave me a Military discount. Another key component is the Victron BMV-712 Battery monitor.

My thread: Expanding compartment space for 2200 Watt Inverter/Charger.

Thanks, Robert, I knew someone would say Alaska. I will be reviewing your suggestion and I like to buy with all systems already in place in the RV. But I am interested in knowing more. As for the XantreX system, the company that makes them is in Clearwater, Florida with Lithium-ion batteries and the XantreX if I recall correctly are made or completed in Lakeland, Florida. I also created a Group in this FORUM called "Coachmen Class B RV'ers" you will find it under communities, then Socal Groups.

A wonderful fun forum as we now are at long last coming to the end of our wait. Life is an adventure, but camping is more fun with friends.

Please be safe and enjoy the roads ahead and let the adventures begin in an RV.

P.S. I hope everyone has enjoyed reading my Social & FREE Stuff.
