Victron Multiplus compact inverter charger

Calling around today, I found a good price on a Victron Multiplus compact inverter charger. 2000W inverter, 80 amp charger. Victron seems to be highly recomended. Does anyone have any experience with this particular unit. The company selling it is a local off the grid type of company, where you talk to the owner. They sell other brands, but Victron is what he likes.

I have a different model of Multiplus. Victron does make good stuff, but be aware that their warranty does not cover labor. Also, do not change the factory settings unless you know what you are doing. It is easy to screw it up.

Yes, that is true that you should not change the settings unless you know what you are doing, however the device is made to have the settings changed and so, if you have one of these on your boat then you should learn all about it and ensure that you have set the unit up correctly.

If you as the boat owner, do not understand the device then it more than likely will not be optimised for your boats requirements.
