Victron Inverter

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard if OTT has switched  2023 production from Xantrex  to Victron inverter equipment?

I heard a rumor that they had, to enhance compatibility between the inverter and battery Victron Battery Monitor.

Oliver is currently still using the Xantrex inverter/charger. At one time I believe they investigated the Victron I/C for improved compatibility but I think that weight or space was an issue.

Thanks!


Have most owners been pleased with the Xantrex?

We're just six months in but to date the Xantrex 3000w inverter charger on board has been flawless. The Bluetooth app is easy to use and makes adjustments to the charge rate a simple process. If we have to plug into a 15 or 20 amp outlet the change only takes seconds on the app. I too was toying with the thought of "upgrading" to the Victron down the road but if the Xantrex continues satisfactorily it will stay in place until it dies. I would be interested though to compare the efficiency of each brand and model in the interest of wasting less power while inverting.

Same here, was also thinking of switching to the Victron Multiplus, but 5 months in and so far happy with the Xantrex. Like @Ollie-Haus will keep it until it dies. I do like the Victron multiplies power assist feature, ie. If more power is needed to run devices that is available from shore power, the Multiplus can pull the additional power from the battery bank, and add that power to the under performing shore power connection…..like so beautifully  explained in the attached video by Nate from Exploristlife! 

And of course you cannot set up a network with the Xantrex and GX Cerbo

Funny thing is I already have six apps to monitor systems on our Oliver and for the most part they are on the phone just in case. I really don't do very much with them other than take a look once in a while. Having the GX Cerbo sounds nice but the stuff I monkey with the most are already on the Truma control. So like the inverter/charger, it would really just be a replacement. I do love the Victron equipment and also wouldn't be surprised if Oliver continues to move that way in the future.

I explored a victron multi plus as a means to run our Truma  ac with a single Honda EU2200.  I had some concern that the multi plus would not accommodate the in rush of current needed for compressor startup. Does anyone have any experience with this or a similar setup?
