  1. I have the Xantrex remote with Bluetooth in the top photo installed by Oliver in my 2021 Elite II delivered last month.
  2. Bill, Yes, that’s the App! Well said. Thanks! David
  3. I don’t know much RV electrical but I’m having to learn. I don’t have much choice living in a very remote location. I added the “FXC Control App” to my phone that can be obtained from the Google Play store or the iOS App Store. This app is specifically for the Xantrex remote to view and monitor and configure the remote. I didn’t know this app existed until I had exhausted all other attempts to find out why my Xantrex was always in a “bypass” mode, never charging the batteries. I thought there has got to be something like a software issue. If one goes to the Xantrex website and looks at the product menu, finds the Xantrex Freedom remote and looks at that page you will see that they mention this application for the Xantrex remote. It might be worth a look and maybe by working with someone at Xantrex they may be of better guidance on using the app. In my case, I was desperate as I needed the lithium batteries charged enough to get the water pump to work so I could winterize before this polar vortex dipping into Texas and it was the weekend. I stuck my neck out and tried the app and out of dumb luck I seemed to have made the right parameter change. I’d recommend calling Xantrex in the future if possible. Sorry for the long diatribe.
  4. FWIW as this is not the exact same problem as most are having with the Xantrex XCPro 3000. I noticed that I was getting the “20” warning code several days after delivery of my new OTT. Long story short, my issue became no charging of the batteries from shore power. I tried checking all the Xantrex switches, the breakers, the cables, etc. to no avail. I finally downloaded the Xantrex Bluetooth app off their website, and after pairing, went to the settings menu and noticed that there was a switch pertaining to charging from the tow vehicle which was on “auto on” . I thought that’s odd because that can’t be done as my tow vehicle is not set up for that. So I turned this switch in the app to off and lo and behold my batteries finally started charging from shore power. The Xantrex did cut off by itself after the batteries were fully charged. Maybe next week after the weather warms up I can put the system through a discharge/charge cycle or two to see if there are continued issues with the Xantrex.
  5. Here’s a picture of the Lithonics battery. Oliver installs three 130 amp hour Lithonics batteries now instead of the two LifeBlue200s.
  6. I found out at delivery of my Elite II on 3 Feb. that it had the Lithonics batteries.
  7. I’ll be picking up my Ollie on 3 Feb and staying a couple nights at Caddo Lake State Park in NE Texas on my way home. I haven’t been camping there before so we’ll see how that goes. I’ve been wanting to check that state park out for years so now’s my chance. There are some National Forest Service campgrounds near where I live on Toledo Bend Lake but the amenities are very limited, i.e. no bathhouses, no electricity, no dump stations. Of course you’d usually have the campground to yourself and lots of shade from the pines and a beautiful lake view and only 2 bucks a night with the geezer pass!
  8. I’ll be picking up my new OTT on 3 Feb so I guess I was the one who took your old pick up date. The weather shouldn’t be too bad for me as I’ll be heading to SE Texas. It’ll still get a little nippy during a night or two I think. I guess I have you to thank for me not having to wait several more months for my new Ollie!
  9. I’m way overdue introducing myself, but I guess it’s better late than never, as I joined the forum a few years ago. I have been researching and thinking about RVs off and on ever since. I finally came to the conclusion that an Oliver Elite II was the best choice for me so I put down my deposit last month. Much to my pleasant surprise, Anita gave me some early build dates so my pick up date is early February. I thought I might have to wait until late spring or early summer. 😁 I’ve done tons of tent camping ( go figure..I’m an Army retiree) and pop up trailer camping (mostly during my 14+ year Army tours in Germany), but I think now at the ripe old age of 68 I’m ready for a little less roughing it. I’ve seen enough of Europe, now it’s time to explore my own country. I wish my wife, Kitty, could join me but she passed away recently due to a long illness, so I’ll be going it alone now. This forum is such a valuable resource! My hat’s off to all the contributors. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the time and effort that goes into sharing your expertise. David
