New RV Technology! New Accessories for RVs

Today I wanted to share 3 new RVing accessories. I always love checking out new RV Technology. All three of these happen to be based around the RV electrical system that can give you flexibility and function. We love our Multiplus II and are glad to see they came out with a Multiplus II 24volt version. I am also excited to see how the EcoFlow Power Kit installs and performs. To get more info on all three things you can check the links below.

    You really should tell your viewers that 48 volts is potentially lethal.

  2. John Baker on October 8, 2022 at 4:57 am

    That type of converter came on my 2016 rpod. Model WFCO 8955.

  3. Timaz on October 8, 2022 at 5:03 am

    I love my MultiPlus II. Thank you for your video on it. The way my Monaco is wired not everything goes though it (elec side of Aqua Hot and A/Cs) but I love it.

  4. Dirk Estey on October 8, 2022 at 5:03 am

    That’s a lot of money when I can run my generator for 2 to 3 hrs off grid and good for the day

  5. popdaddyg on October 8, 2022 at 5:04 am

    Always enjoy the tech updates! Do you think you can get ahold of a Softstart RV? I saw where they have a plug in model for the pedestal now.

  6. Corey Merritt on October 8, 2022 at 5:07 am

    Very cool Jared you have probably seen the new soft start that plugs into the power pedestal I think its quite a game changer for the ac also being a surge protector as well thanks

  7. straight shooter on October 8, 2022 at 5:10 am

    Hello, so you don’t need a converter/charger with a victron 2?. And would I need a transfer switch if I don’t have a on board generator?. Thanks for any information you can give.

  8. Christopher Rasmussen on October 8, 2022 at 5:10 am

    We crossed country last year. Stayed at a friends shop. He had a 30 amp outlet on the side! Awesome. Well he had a business and he used that line for a big table saw. After blowing the breaker the 3rd time. I turned on the power assist. It lasted long enough to run the AC till it cooled off. Then the fan for the night. Had to run the generator (solar was not done yet ) to catch up the batteries

  9. Playinatlife on October 8, 2022 at 5:10 am

    Hi Jared, Would you consider doing a video on RV security systems for non-full timers? Another RV where I store mine recently had the catalytic converter stolen…in spite of the RV’s being stored in a locked community. I would like a system that would alert me on my phone. I have solar so power for the system isn’t an issue. Thanks! Love your practical videos!

  10. Gregory Henriksen on October 8, 2022 at 5:11 am

    What are you using to hold your batteries?

  11. Clinton Schlutz on October 8, 2022 at 5:14 am

    I just installed a wfco 8735-ad with which should auto detect, I also ha brand new safari ut 1300 (×2). It does not appear to auto detect and only charge rd each to about 80%. I charged each one at a time fron 40% all according to the on board led power indicators on the batteries. Does ant one have any input on. How to get them to switch to lithium?

  12. Solomon King on October 8, 2022 at 5:17 am

    Got a new converter all hooked up with new lithium batteries and love it.

  13. Steven Babcock on October 8, 2022 at 5:17 am

    Thank you as always!!!

  14. Steve Howell on October 8, 2022 at 5:18 am

    Take a look at the EG4 48V systems. There’s a 3KW ($750) and a 6.5KW($1500) inverter/charger/controller; each can be paralleled either to provide more total wattage, and also, for the 6.5KW units, 240V AC.

  15. Tim F on October 8, 2022 at 5:19 am

    YES, We like easy. AND simple…..

  16. Theodore Hyatt on October 8, 2022 at 5:20 am

    I would rather cobble together a system I don’t like having to be locked into one manufacturer

  17. PLRPilot on October 8, 2022 at 5:20 am

    You should also really consider looking at the EG4 batteries from signature solar. They are about $1400 for a 5kw battery (48v, 100AH), and they are rack-mountable. For a 5th wheel, you could pack a wallop of a battery storage array for less than 30% of some of the most popular RV batteries out right now. I’ve got both Battleborn and Renogy battery systems, but after working with the EG4’s, I may not be able to look at anything else. The compactness is a game-changer. They have a pretty awesome solar/charger/inverter system, too, but for an RV, I’d go with the Victron 48V multiplus II. The Eco-flows are great, too, but if you’re looking at serious storage potential, look at the EG4’s.

  18. Midkiff Memories on October 8, 2022 at 5:20 am

    Thank you for showing these great accessories! We have thought about installing solar and a battery bank and this was extremely helpful.

  19. Al Rude on October 8, 2022 at 5:20 am

    Please do a video on the platform that you made for your batteries.. I have the 2022 version of your RV and would love to replicate your battery shelf. Thanks

  20. Tikkin on October 8, 2022 at 5:22 am

    Are all of the 12v components in the RV safe when the converter is supplying between 14.4 and 13.6 volts?
    I had one go bad a few weeks ago and began to wonder it the high initial voltage is ok.

  21. That Guy Nico on October 8, 2022 at 5:22 am

    Im still on the fence about Multiplus 2 or the Easy Solar 2 for a 48v system because I REALLY want (and possibly need) the Multiplus’ 240v output which the Easy solar doesnt have. I have asked before about 48v systems and you did answer which was great. What are your thoughts on the usage between the Multiplus 2 vs EasySolar 2?

  22. TheSunfire96 on October 8, 2022 at 5:23 am

    Jared, I don’t blame you for leaving Campendium because they have just become another woke business and promoting lgbtq campgrounds and when I ask them about it they said I could unsubscribe and cancel my membership so I did just that!! They average everyday camper built them and they choose the other group over us is a disgrace!!!

  23. Exploring Travel on October 8, 2022 at 5:25 am

    Some very helpful information, thank you for posting

  24. MofongoGringo on October 8, 2022 at 5:25 am

    You should have your own TV show brotha! Awesome stuff and very well presented…Keep up the great work!

  25. Michael Murphy on October 8, 2022 at 5:26 am

    We love your videos! I am currently designing a solar system for my 5th wheel using all Victron components including the Multiplus II. You say that you’ wished you went with a 24 or 48 volt battery system, but what would you use to step it down to 12 volt and be able to handle the current of the hydraulic jacks? Thanks!!

  26. Terry Rodbourn on October 8, 2022 at 5:28 am

    I would go with a newer :FP battery to try out!

  27. Delvie Larken on October 8, 2022 at 5:30 am

    I love seeing you tackling the EcoFlow system – it’s a bit more expensive (I think) but it all works together. For folks who aren’t sure what they are doing that’s a big plus!

  28. FestusRv on October 8, 2022 at 5:30 am

    Great 👍🏻

  29. Russ Houberg on October 8, 2022 at 5:35 am

    Have you had any challenges with your Victron shutting down to protect itself from "bad" campground power? Ours seems to be very sensitive. I have a hughes watchdog and I"m thinking about getting a hughes voltage booster to regulate the park power a bit because I think voltage is low / unstable at some of these parks.

  30. John Sholian on October 8, 2022 at 5:35 am

    I just upgraded to that type of converter as I’m switching over to LiFePo soon. I agree that the RV manufacturers should make them standard equipment.

  31. Ken Crook on October 8, 2022 at 5:36 am

    Love this channel. I have learned so much.

  32. Mc Rod on October 8, 2022 at 5:37 am

    Honestly, 24v solar should be the starting point for 50 amp RVs. You don’t want to series/parallel your lithium. You want your lithium batteries to match the voltage of your inverter.

    12v is great for vans, 30 amp rvs, etc.
    24v should be your baseline for 50 amp RVs.
    48v would be better for full time use in large RVs, small cabins, ADUs, etc.
    Dual split phase 48v best for off grid homes.

  33. Mike Ehrhart on October 8, 2022 at 5:37 am

    Great video!

  34. Dennis Wintjes on October 8, 2022 at 5:37 am

    Question: With the victron multiplus II inverter, do you need a Electrical Management System that will detect electrical low voltage, high voltage, etc, or does the Multiplus do this for you? Thanks for sharing. Like 1.7K+ View 27841

  35. John R on October 8, 2022 at 5:38 am

    Thanks god bless

  36. 522Shelby on October 8, 2022 at 5:38 am

    The EcoFlow might also be a great solution for smaller spaces like B/van RVs. Great work as usual Jared!

  37. Jeff Forbess on October 8, 2022 at 5:40 am

    I’ve heard of using deep cycle/lithium combos. What do you think?

  38. John Etherington on October 8, 2022 at 5:40 am

    Could you do a review on RV battery testers? Lots out there, hard to know what’s worth it. I’ve enjoyed all your episodes, keep it up!

  39. Mike Moxley on October 8, 2022 at 5:40 am

    Great information

  40. NateCCIE on October 8, 2022 at 5:41 am

    The 48v MPII is not a 2×120 like the 12v and 24v if I remember correctly.

  41. Cribbage16 on October 8, 2022 at 5:42 am

    Thx for the video.

  42. CP watching on October 8, 2022 at 5:42 am

    Hi hello, Informative content as always. I’m experienced with systems but with my RV, I’m trying to understand how the DC side of things interact. I’m trying to comprehend how an MPPT solar charge controller, and a converter charger and vehicle 7 wire accessory all hooked to the batteries on the RV work. I have golf cart batteries in series for a 12 system. It seems to me the alternator would output and the MPPT (Renogy 40A) would mess with each other on the road on a sunny day. Then on a sunny day in the camp site I’d think the convertor and MPPT would mess with each other. Who wins the control? It would seem one could confuse the other and not treat the batteries as they should be. Any thoughts? Maybe because the batteries are giant power sponges it does not matter. Maybe use only one system at a time? I could do that but would like it to be transparent to the user. Thanks I enjoy your channel very much. Take care.

    I doubt he lives in that rv is always to clean but I like his videos

  44. The Critter and The Butterfly on October 8, 2022 at 5:45 am

    Tech innovation never stands still. There are some pretty interesting thing in development and coming to market. Thanks for some highlights.

  45. travels and trips on October 8, 2022 at 5:47 am

    Hello I’m a new subscriber I just bought my first RV a week ago.. and my question is what would you recommend as AC that’s quiet and suitable for eco friendly. I have a 35000 btu I think. If I’m wrong about that size I will recheck and rephrase my question. Thank you

  46. Fat Head Cycles on October 8, 2022 at 5:47 am

    Looks like the website for rv solar connection is down and Google shows them as temporarily closed. I hope this isn’t the case for long.

  47. Bruce Filbert on October 8, 2022 at 5:48 am

    You have taught me so much over the years. Keep up the good work

  48. TheAndrettiDog on October 8, 2022 at 5:52 am

    I was very interested until I saw that the batteries are NCM. I get that the NCM batteries hold more energy in a tighter space, but hard pass for me. But thanks for showing us the tech. I might be interested when they get to LiP04.

  49. Timothy Bockhoff on October 8, 2022 at 5:52 am

    Nice video! I am doing a 200w solar install with 200ah of lithium this weekend on our Grand Design 150 series. We have a trip planned for Yellowstone next year and wanted to be able to boon dock and be close to nature. I am using all Renogy stuff though.
