This is by far the most confusing ordering method i have ever come across. The kits i am looking at are incomplete. As i add anything to the order i have no way to “continue shopping” nor can I find the multi-plus inverter charger anywhere

Hey! Love your work here, it really helps me to plan my rv in Europe :)

Im planning a system without an inverter. But i wanna use shore during camping. (Im not using ac in my camper at all) So what device do you prefere for charging my house batteries (200ah lifepo) and to power up my dc applications. I have found Dometic smp 301-07 for this application but it will not charge Li batteries.

Any suggestions?

Thank you, Ervo

What size copper bus bars do you typically buy? 1/4”? 1/2”? Width?

@Nate Yarbrough, I guess I should’ve been more clear, when I said copper bus bar I meant this connection between switch & lynx, shunt & lynx.

I forgot you offered them in your shop. It looks like the ones you offer would be rated for the 3-400 amp range which is probably sufficient for most 12v systems.

It depends on what they are being used for. I don't really have copper bars in my parts lists anymore as I found they were less-than-user-friendly. The closest thing to 'copper bars' I have are the Lynx Adapters that go from the shunt and master disconnect switch to the Lynx Distributor, but I have those machined for you and they are available in my store so you don't have to worry about sizing them.

I am considering changing batteries from flooded cell 6v golf cart batteries to Lithium in my diesel pusher motorhome.

The one thing stopping me is how will the batteries charge while driving down the road? I do not have any solar panels on the roof (yet!). I have a Cummins Diesel engine. The alternator is currently charging both the chassis batteries and the 6v house batteries.

How do I determine if the alternator output is safe for the Lithium batteries. Or, will a DC to DC charger be required? And then how do I disconnect the alternator from charging the batteries?

A DC DC Charger would indeed be the most appropriate method. Here is my 50A OEM RV Retrofit diagram that should help: https://www.explorist.life/50a-camper-inverter-with-solar-alternator-charging-wiring-diagram/
