Poorly thought-out design. So if its raining in the morning you cant make a cuppa without getting rained on walking from the main section to the cooker.

my wife hates the idea... so she wasn't impressed with the ARB camper.

she took one look at the walk around video and said that it looked like a two person Portaloo.

Now I can't unsee that...

Well, she's not entirely wrong...

ARB will have to do a redesign were the battery is  once the new AS/NZ 3001-2-2022 comes into force later in the year. Battery to be in it own compartment with no other equipment.

This a bit of what is available on the new regs, in their terminology, external battery location mean separated from the habitable area, either exposed or contained in a compartment

Is that for new builds only, or would it also apply to swapping an AGM battery to lithium ???

It almost reads as ION batteries as they come in may formats
LFP is not directly specified nor any other battery - just talk to the manufacturer

that legislation was actually introduced in July last year.

all manufacturers were given a 12 months grace period.

it is *not* retrospective. (so if you're upgrading from deep cycle to lithium you should be ok)

Each State will have their own enabling legislation for AS3000 & AS 3001.

In Tasmania its Occupational Licensing Act and the accompanying Occupational Licensing (Standards of Electrical Work) COP. 2017
