Craig, I’ve never heard of that product. Can you provide a link so that we can see what you’re talking about. My experience with solar is that you are better off buying separate components of the system rather than any of these “new gadgets“.

BTW, I live off grid in southern Arizona.

Redarc makes them, maybe Renogy as well. Sounds like a good solution to combine a solar controller with a DC2DC charger as probably 90% of the electronics are similar between the two.

Yes it is a good idea, space is limited. Didn't know if anyone has experience with one. I guess I might be the ginni pip.

Just attended a Mike Sokol seminar at the Puyallup RV Show and he had mentioned that he had the Redarc unit.

Victron energy sells the Orian line that is battery to battery. I have one that is 18 amp output and still get by useing the 7 way RV flat cord. Any thing more then 18 amp out put you really need to have a Andersen connector for the truck side power. The Victron is compatible with any current battery charge profile and is current limiting for Lithium battery's. It programs with the use of any smart phone and there down loadable APP. I Like Victron products for a few reason they are very efficient and don't generator a lot of heat . I have mine set up to turn on with the parking lights and charge so If my solar is running the truck charge isnt needed. The 18 amps is enough of a charge rate that it keeps up with my inverter and residential frig running.
