We're noticing a trend of adventurous ladies hitting the road in motorhomes. Much like Kathy who purchased a Hiace Camper with plans to spend a glorious seven weeks at a Station Camp in WA's far north with a party of happy camper lady friends.
In want of some powerful off the grid capability and an upgrade to some accessories, we fit Kathy's Hiace with our complete and portable RV Lithium System, The Lithium Box 100/40 Small. Even with a Victron IP65 12/15A, 240V charger mounted to the top of The Lithium Box, it fit with room to spare where the old AGM battery resided.
The Lithium Box 100/40 Small boasts:
100Ah RV Lithium Systems Lithium (LiFePO4) Battery with Cell Balancing and Cell Protection
Victron Smart Shunt Bluetooth Battery Meter. Read the battery meter from the convenience of your smart phone. Displays the battery’s voltage, amps in or out, amp hours consumed, time to go until flat, and actual State of Charge (SOC) as a percentage.
Master Battery Switch
Automatic 65A Low Battery State of Charge or Voltage Disconnect of accessory power sockets and Automatic Reconnect once the battery has received adequate charge
Internal Fusing and Output Short Circuit Protection
REDARC BCDC 1240D Vehicle 40A DC to DC Charger with Blue 50A Anderson Plug Input, protected by cell protection and 40A MPPT Solar Charger with Red 50A Anderson Plug Input protected by cell protection

all weighing a mere 15kgs and measuring 315 x 155 x 275mmH!
We wired the water pump and some lights to an existing switch panel, added a USB and Cig socket, a flash new Bushmans 85L upright fridge, and we fit Solar Input to the side of the van to plug in a 300W KT Solar blanket, hooked to the side of the vehicle.
