So I have a new to me coachmen’s sportscoach elite diesel pusher, replaced the coach batteries with battle born lithium, pulled out the big boy isolator and installed the LiFePO4 Battery Isolation Manager.

On the opposite side of coach I was replacing the inverter charger and I removed a protective cover and there was a Bird isolator device. Should a unit have both wired in, or now that I have lifepo4 manager installed should I remove the bird unit and pieces?

Thanks

Per the instructions the current BIRD is not needed as the LiFePO4 Battery Isolation Manager does that function. Doug

If it is not connected leave it in place. You might find it useful at some future point in time--or the next owner might.
