Wow , this is becoming way to complicated to be able to heat up a cup of chili , I'm starting to think just carrying a small generator is the best solution

Or consider the tried-and-true pair of 6 Volt lead-acid that Escape has used for many years. Or a slightly more modern pair of 12 Volt AGM (lead-acid) batteries. Both will power your cup of chili many times over and don't require the Lithium learning curve.

I just got done modifying my 2019 E19 by installing a 270 ah Battleborn battery in my U-shaped dinette. It fit...just barely, lol. But now I can run my microwave at night and not worry about running the batteries too low. And the toaster barely dents the amount of amps.
I had two 6v AGM's in the front storage box and just pulled the wiring back into the trailer to wire it.

I am putting 2, 206 ah SOK batteries in our 5.0. It is my understanding that they will fit in the standard battery box designed for 2 factory installed lithium ion batteries, Except I wonít be able to put the lid on. As these donít off gas, that doesnít concern me. What does concern me is being able to charge those monsters up with the 2 roof mounted solar panels plus a 190ish Zamp Suitcase ; )

They should charge fine, be careful of your tow vehicle charging: install a dc to dc Victron or another brand to regulate the output and protect the tow
