Converting House Batteries to Lithium - 2014 40RX

Curious if anyone has ditched their flooded acid house batteries and swapped over to a lithium setup. I see the NEWER Magnum Energy controller has a lithium option. Wondering if this one can be upgraded. Using a Magnum MS2000 inverter. Not planning on doing solar yet, will do that later after batteries installed.

Yeah, I did but what very little I found didn't have great information.

Probably no one here has posted about a lithium upgrade on your model RV, but there are several people here that have upgraded to lithium and posted about it here.

What are your specific questions/concerns?
What equipment do you have now?

On a 2014 you will probably need to:
Upgrade the converter or add a lithium charger.

Upgrade the BCC (assuming that's what you have) by passing the battery banks connecting/charging/isolation function with a LI-225 BIM.

Once I get it installed I'll post it up. Bought 2 Ampere Time 12v x 400ah Lithium, went ahead and bought an upgraded Magnum Controller and a Battery Monitor. Having a customer battery tray made. Will do solar later once I get these installed to see how well they work. My MS2000 Magnum Pure Sine Wave Inverter will work once I put in new controller.
