Default Winnebago Travato with Volta Lithium Battery System

Posted on Facebook by Lichstinn RV

Here we go Travato nation! Tomorrow we debut the Travato Pure3 59KL and 59GL with the Volta Power Systems... the most powerful, durable, and easy to use lithium energy system in the RV industry!

Weighing less than 200 lb, a 3 module automotive-grade energy pack provides 8,700 Whrs with a 3,600 watt pure sine inverter bringing 30 amps of power wherever you go!

The dedicated 58V alternator is 2X as powerful as its competitor. Its compact design keeps it secluded from curbs and road debris.

Winnebago's auto start and high idle control significantly extends AC run time.

An 8 year battery warranty is designed to last a lifetime! It's virtually maintenance free and includes a temperature controlled battery compartment.

Operation includes simple seamless operation and automatically starts when batteries need replenishment, recharging within 1 hour! It includes the highest efficient solar controller in its class, with 30% better energy absorption than competitors!

Stay tuned for our video relase of the all new Travato 59KL and 59GL! Travato Owners and Wannabees

Here's the page from Volta describing the "kits"

Link

Looks like one could do this as a retrofit. No price yet.

Well, I would say this Travato is more like a good competitor to the Roadtrek Zionís that have lithium batteries.

I would think that Winnebago would also be looking at using the Volta in the ERA and the Revel...

Maybe, but I'm guessing 'this solution' is more ARV like than etrek.

I would seriously consider trading my zion for this. My issue with travatos always been the onan generator.

the 59kl i will look at and possibly trade.

Volta would be superior to ecotrek in my opinion.

I agree wholeheartedly. I have the same issues with the Travatos. I wonder if they eliminated the Onan, if they could somehow increase the fresh water tank capacity? 21 gallons is a little on the small side.

Lichtsinn posted a short video about the new systems:



At around 0:38 or so there's a few seconds showing the drivers side with what looks like an Onan exhaust sticking out, so at first glance it seems they kept the generator. But one of the comments on the video asked about a generator, and the reply from Lichtsinn made it sound like there wasn't one. So I'm not sure what to make of that.

Or am I mistaken, and that's actually the engine exhaust?

It might be the exhaust for the Truma Combi...

I went back through my collection of 59G videos, and in the walkthrough video posted by Wincrasher a few years ago he mentions that's the engine exhaust. It looks like the Onan exhaust would be on the driver's side behind the rear wheel next to the black tank drain connection. Its hard to tell in the video above, but I don't see it there.
