Re: LiFePO4 Conversion on sv BeBe - SM#387

Hi Dan,

Congratulations on your recent LIFePO4 upgrade. We just spent months going through Alaska with a slowly failing lead acid battery bank, and have also decided to upgrade now that we are in Washington State for the winter. In our case, we were fortunate to have all modern programmable charging sources which will be compatabible with the 8 Battleborn 24v batteries which are arriving tomorrow. We have a much older SM, and will take this opportunity to re-wire most of the older heavy gauge wiring, and clean up the old mess a little bit. 

We are also planning to increase our solar capacity as well, and that brings up a question I’m hoping you can answer. We have the same Emek arch which is installed on BeBe, and I was wondering how you modified the top frame of the arch to accommodate the larger panel size? Any information you can provide on that subject would be greatly appreciated.
