I have a 120w solar panel running to my CTEK250-SA. I have just bought the Victron SmartShunt (Not installed yet) and would like to see what power I am getting from the solar panel. Not sure the shunt does that, so what would be the best kit to install to monitor solar output please along...
Hi all, newbie alert so please go easy on me! I'm just in the late stages of buying a custom build 2/3 year old T6 Highline T30 SWB 150 DSG with Sportline body kit etc from Woodstock Campers. I'm considering using it off grid occasionally but it only has one leisure battery. Before I go back to...
I have a spare Spare Victron 100A Battery protect, long story.
Is it worth connecting this to the main engine battery, (having the alternator as a direct connection to the battery, everything else connect via battery protect).
Or just sell it on here as I'm asking for trouble?
All from an abandoned project. Boxes opened and equipment powered up, but not installed. All on the bench, then re-packaged. Full warranty/manuals/connectors etc. As new.

Hi, Inspired by @Deaky build post, I was planning on installing a Victron IP65 Smart charger next to the Starter Battery and a 2nd one to charge the Leisure batter (110AH AGM). I've discovered the CTEK D250SE will still charge the leisure battery as long as the volts on the starter battery are...
Do any of you know if the below is possible/safe?
I want to be able to charge my starter and leisure battery at the same time when on EHU. So my question is can I connect the Victron Blue Smart 12/30 into the 'IN' port on my Victron Orion-TR smart DC DC charger? I think this is possible using...
Is there any victron bluetooth experts on here?
I have fitted an arduino and display in my van and would like to put a EHU CONNECTED warning on the display, in big flashing letters! I can see two ways to do this;
1. Connect a 240V relay in the consumer unit and connect the contacts to arduino...
I installed my leisure battery today along with a Victron Orion B2B charger, looking at the manual it suggests I don’t need to run a signal cable to the fuse. I ran the cable anyway as I was not aware of this at the time.
Does anyone have experience of using the fuse cable vs not...

So, van has returned from its kitchen fit.
All electrics now hooked up and every thing is working well, (so impressed with the Victron kit) except that I can't get my generated power to the battery.
Kicking out 100W, the BVM reports no influx of juice.
There's a plethora of settings in both the...
As the title says, Im selling my Victron Smart Battery Protect.
Its only a week old. If necessary I can fit this for you.
Possibly at the September meet or Manchester based.
I bought my kit from a very helpful Travelvots last year, now that I've come to the connection and install I've forgotten all of his wise words.
Is anyone willing to share their solar install and battery charging setup?
I have the MPPT 75/15 smart solar charge controller, Orion-Tr Smart...
having not used The van for 3 weeks,and only use it on weekends Or every other in normal times!..the starter battery was down to 11.8v so I decided on utilising my fixed solar panel on my pop top as a permanent fit & forgot solution to maintain the starter battery,I also wanted to utilise this...
As I’ve got a permanently fixed awning rail on the van and no awning As of yet, time for a bit of ingenuity...

I've just taken delivery of the DC-DC charger and removed the passenger seat to see where it could be installed. There doesn't appear to be enough space under the seat and I was wondering if anyone had managed to fit this in a Beach?
Just a quick one lads,
it’s all fitted and seems to be working fine! Just wanted to check this is all normal stuff, when I first plugged it into 240v it was reading this -
And now it’s been on charge for a few hours it’s reading this -
Finally got around to completing the installation of my comprehensive Victron electrical appliance install.
Very impressed with the bluetooth smart features of their kit that allow you to monitor the system. The MPPT has to be the stand out piece of kit from them.
The relatively slim...
I know I’m asking more questions than answering presently
Does the Victron BVM-712 also monitor the solar energy I’m producing? I can’t see it in the user manual other than reference to the omission of the -ve symbol in the ‘power’ menu of the display.
