I was able to visit Silver Leaf in Oregon to have them make the changes, it cost me somewhere around $150 and I didnít need to buy the controls etc for the Magnum. As for replacement of the unit, itís very heavy, I made a ramp with boards and slid the units down then back up. Worked out great and saved my back!
What did you do with the generator auto-start? Did you replace the Xantrax with Magnum's?

Thanks all for your input and help!

How did it work out? Which Victron did you go with? Where did you mount it? How did you handle the generator start?

Well the saga continues.... The Victron 3000 unit we ordered to be installed would not fit... I had reservations going in after researching the unit but the folks at Infinity Coach did not seem concerned. They are the experts after all.
Anyway as I said it just won’t work soooooo, now we have a remanufactured Xantrex 3000 marine unit going in. I have to have the coach next week for a business trip. Big decisions had to be made and there are no other units available. So there we are. It’s supposed to be ready for pick up Monday afternoon.
