Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    New Victron VRM Apple and Android apps out:
    Also I’m posting this from an airplane taking off. Legally I think.
    Times are changing.

    It will be interesting to see how this works out after a season of use. Victron makes great products and their support is outstanding. Still tuning complicated systems can be a challenge. See

    This is a lot to digest, so before I get carried away, I just want to make one statement.
    Due to a bit of inspiration (Ben’s choice to remove the Onan Genset and go with a MultiPlus), I decided to give Victron a much closer look. Since then, we have almost EXCLUSIVELY used Victron products for DC and AC solutions, from the bulletproof MultiPlus, Quattro, the Centaur, Phoenix, and most importantly their BluePower monitoring systems. Even their solar charge controller has been great, not to mention the tiny yet perfectly engineering Cyrix battery combiner. We’ve even used their Telecommunications batteries to double the ampacity on boats that would have only been able to fit half the number of 4 and 8Ds. Just incredible equipment, and the VE.Bus and VE.Net is so simple to work with and program, it’s been a blessing. We’ve used these products on new builds and refits, and I’ve had nothing but positive results. Big up to the Dutch Blue Company, this new GX is in a class of it’s own. Finally a replacement for the Link 1000/2000 systems, it’s been a long wait.
