Thanks for your input Joel!

Yes, I think a lithium battery with a self heating provision would be necessary in the climate that I use and store my camper in.

One major concern concerning this type of battery would be the amp draw of the batteries self protective heating circuit.

I don’t see storage as being a problem, but it would not be out of the ordinary for me to spend days camped in sub freezing temps without shore power, all this time running the furnace, coach lights, water pump etc.

In reality I guess this is where a DC/DC charger and OBG come into play.

I guess the question revolves around the fact that if in cold climates, you need to run your truck or generator for several hours each day to keep your “self heating” lithium batteries charged, is there really any great advantage in switching from AGM?
