    Anyone know if the new True Blue battery can be retrofit to an older R66, or are there provisions that must be factory added?

    Would love to get the weight savings

    I was just at RHC and they will not put the true blue in an older ship (mine is a 2012) at this time. They would need to develop a kit for the wiring of the alerting / monitoring lights that go on the panel and are not inclined to do so. Perhaps someone else or true blue could develop what would appear to be a relatively simple kit and STC.

    There is hope from RHC on some of the later R66’s just before the battery was announced as, according to Kurt, they have the wiring installed. I still think that RHC needs to develop a kit, but my understanding is that, while it’s not available yet, they are more receptive to doing so.

    Thanks for the info. Considering True Blue made an STC for the 44, can’t imagine it would be a serious hardship to get one for the 66, but I’m not going to hold my breath
