Installing a Battery Isolator to charge the house batteries off the engine alternator, and charge the engine batteries off the solar panels. This device took my power management to a whole new level. With the True Smart Battery Isolator, I am able to keep all of my batteries charged up, and I don’t need to worry about them being drawn down by regular use. The install was surprisingly simple, and with the addition of a switch, I have full control over when and how my batteries charge.
EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE ONE OF THESE IN THEIR VEHICLES; IT’S WORTH EVERY PENNY. SEE BELOW LINKS TO AMAZON

Part6 of the VW T6 campervan build – how to wire up a CTEK charge controller for your house/leisure battery that deals with smart alternators in euro 6 engines. Also, pleased note, if you have a 2017/2018 T6 with a MOLL battery, it is likely faulty, you can get it replaced under warranty for a nice VARTA AGM. Thanks to the T6Forum.com for this wonderful information. #campervan #vanlife #camperconversion

After a lot of testing and tweaking, I’m finally happy with how my Lithium iron phosphate or LiFePO4 batteries are charging using my narrowboats alternator. Initially, the charge was too harsh so I used a Victron BMS 12/200 to regulate the current and give me the option to disable the charge when I want to.

What begins as a simple swap-out of our 24 volt alternator morphs into an in-depth discussion of sailboat batteries and charging systems. This overview describes the details of shore power, battery chargers, alternators, generators, AC vs. DC power, electrical phasing, US vs European power, battery charge controllers, and how solar, wind, and hydro charging integrate into the charging system. There’s also some talk of lead-acid, gel, AGM, and Lithium Ion batteries.
