Howdy, I'm looking to purchase a complete solar setup and your customization skills have fascinated me. I'm basically looking to use (or copy) one of your Battle Born setups, but with SOK Lithium batteries, and I'll need to measure to see if the Victron Multiplus ii will fit under my dinette seat. Would you be able to assist with customizing this for me?
2017 Dynamax Rev 24RB, 30amp.
Also, can the Victron MP ii 50 work with my 30amp, and more importantly, would I even want it to? I'm more interested in this due to its slimmer size, but I do NOT want to cause issues by using the wrong components.

HI, I purchased an used van with a solar system already installed (renogy 3k inverter, 2 Li 170Ah batteries, renogy controller, no shore power). I would like to increase battery capacity, and able to connect to shore power so i can run AC as long as needed .. i will be installing a DC AC (per your blogs) .. I learned that 170Ah batteries are not available any more.. so i might need to replace batteries so i can increase capacity. Any guidance or reference information will be highly appreciated. Thank you, Eric

I watched "DIY Sprinter Camper Van Electrical install - Full Tutorial", around the 18min mark, you you stated you wish you could get rid of the red looped battery connecting cable. You can. There is no reason for it to be the same length as the black cable. It is a series connection and should be as short as possible. Only the connections between batteries need to be the same length.

I have a question about the 600Ah – Multiplus 3k 12v – Orion 12-12 | 30 Wiring Kit. I will be starting with two Battle Born Game Changer 3.0 batteries which will give me 540amp instead of 600, and planning to add a third battery in the future if I need to for a total of 710amps. My question is, will this kit be sufficient to handle the expanded system if I do add a third battery? Thank you for your time!
