Been browsing for a while and thought it about time to say hello.
We are a family
based in Yorkshire Central uk. We like to get out cruising at least twice a month.
The difference here is our cruising is usually down a motorway to somewhere and not on water
You may be puzzled......We actually have a motorhome and not a boat
You may also wonder why i joined a sailing forum when i have a motorhome....
Well, the reason is i have installed a Victron Multiplus Compact 12-1600-70 in the van. The unit is in and up and running great but needs tweaking to suit my battery
My van set-up is very similar to a boats, we have the wonderful webasto heating
, 85w solar
on the roof through a Steca controller. This keeps both my T105 Trojans in good condition while she is in storage
. Then the Multi plus and remote control panel
. One other bit of kit i wouldn't live without is the Nasa B-M1 battery monitor
So as you can see apart from the fact she dosent float we both have similar setups
After searching the Internet
for help setting up my Multiplus using Veconfig and the MK2 usb interface it seems the boating
world use them alot more than the motorhomers.
So really i am looking for some help and guidance to set up this fine bit of kit.
The areas i am struggling with are the battery type and charging
The battery bank consists of 2 6v Trojan T-105. We wont be on hookup much but do hope to use out Honda
EU-10i for charging
and power assist.
I really would appreciate any help and advice with the settings.
I also see in ve config you can open and set-up a fake target and then save to file. This may be an option for someone experienced
