That is true. But you may be in luck, I have here in my hand a Xantrex RC6 Remote Control. It came out of my coach when I had to replace the inverter/converter. The new Xantrex unit required a different type of remote so I still have the R6. It worked when it was installed with the old inverter so I assume it still works now. I can make you a good deal if you want it, Shipping Cost. PM me if you want it with shipping address. Always glad to pass parts on to people that need them for their own use.

I have the RC7 with my Xantrex RV2512. It adds remote gen start to the RC6 function. As far as I know, only the RC6 and RC7 work with this series if inverter because the interface from remote to inverter is proprietary.

Yes, The RC7 uses a different cable than the 6. You will have to use the cable that comes with the 7.
