    Hello
    We have swapped info about the Renogy Lithium 170 Ah battery.
    They are currently on sale, I just bought one for my incoming 2021 TAB 320 S BD.
    The terminals are a really weird size, I'm having trouble finding a 4 AWG cable for this - can you recommend a source or did you make your own?
    Did you find 170 Ah was enough, even for extended off-grid use and running the fridge, say for 5+ days?
    Is your battery mounted in the tongue box or inside the camper itself?
    I'd consider buying a 2nd 170 battery if it didn't max out my tongue box space and weight.
    Thanks for any info you can share.

      Hey dude, I used 8awg wire because that is what was already there. Put mine in the tongue box with the Victron battery monitor up there too - so some of my wiring goes to the battery monitor and some to the Renogy. For the Renogy lugs I just ordered these 1/2” guys on Amazon and crimped them on: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074P3HY48/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_31C8FbVNG6V23?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

      As for battery life, I would say we get about four days of normal including the fridge but it’s tough to say because we live and camp out west and thus we are always being topped up by the solar so it often seems infinite. If we lived in a less sunny area I would likely do two of the 170’s though tbh

      Search my comment history for a couple good threads on how to wire up and fit it all
