Do you have to input the battery size when setting it up?
    My Dual battery loads are connected via a Shunt to the BMV-702 so all loads in and out are measured. I am using a Lifepo4 battery which has around a 99%+ charge efficiency, so it's pretty accurate. The app simply recives the BMV data over bluetooth, so its not calculating anything, just displaying the data remotely. Yes, battery size needs to be input initially.

    Yep, you'd need the BMV-702, and the VE-Direct BT Dongle, the app is free. Not cheap but Victron gear is top notch. I have the BMV-702 in my pillar pod, but its pretty ugly next to the redarc gauge, so I think I'll move it down the back somewhere and just use the app.

    Just ordered a front Pro-locker. E-lockers are ok but I need a tank
    that will hold a bit of air. plus they both do the same thing anyway and leaves me extra $$$ for other projects
    Also brought a 3mt x 2mt wall for my awning, keep a bit of weather out if I dont take my camper.
    Now to strip the tank out of the other 4x4 been meaning on doing it for months now. Nice big tank
    that will allow me to run air tools if I decide to go that way

    sounds like you're doing it once and doing it right,
    you must be hanging to crank this motor over.

    Picked up a bargain on a Sony 55"HD Smart TV for the spare room. A two week old current model demo. The shop was just starting to move a dozen or so demos to another wall, to fit more in. Sticker price was $1,499 I offered them $950 on the spot and they took it. Full warranty, not a mark on it. Wasn't even shopping for a TV. Right place, right time. The 4wd shows will look good on it.
