I have a Freedom 458 COMBI inverter/charger(1000 Watt inverter). It looks like there is no remote control panel, all I have in the front of the coach is a panel, for the tank sensors, heater, ac, and it has on/off switches for the water pump, inverter, battery disconnects(chassis/coach), radio. The only type of battery monitor is the green/yellow/red sensor. I'm looking for the correct remote control panel for the coach, to show the voltages on the batteries, and I need to be able to equalize the batteries too.

On our '04 Discovery we had the same problem. After a few years the batteries would not hold a full charge. So I bought and installed the Xantrex basic remote control, which became standard eguipment a few years later. The equalization program brought the batteries back to just like new. I installed the remote in the bedroom so that my dear wife can turn on the inverter for the hair dryer without prancing up to the front. Made her happy and fixed the batteries like new. Just turn off all power to 12 and 120 volt appliances, make sure the batteries have sufficient water, be plugged into at least 20 amps, and hit the button and wait about 8 hours.

Jack, how many wire did you have to run to support the remote control panel, and did you have to do any other mods.

If you buy the basic remote it comes with, as I recall, the telephone cable like wire, 25 feet long, that just plugs into your Freedom 458. You can actually just plug it in to equalize, right at the inverter, to accomplish the equalization. The running of the wire, in our case, to the wall facing forward near the washer dryer (39L) was relatively easy. Up through the floor under the bed, over to the wall, under the dryer and up the wall. Besides removing a few covers, and cutting a hole in the wall it was simple. Besides a switch for the inverter, having the condition of the batteries was handy. Good luck.
