A power inverter should be mounted as close as possible to the battery bank in your RV, but that makes it inconvenient to monitor and control from inside your RV's living space. In this episode of Grand Adventure we install and test the Xantrex Bluetooth Remote Panel for Freedom X/XC power inverters and inverter-chargers, and in the process share how much simpler it is to configure a Freedom X or XC using the Xantrex mobile app. However, the installation procedure we follow, cutting the wall and routing the communications cable from the remote panel to our Xantrex Freedom X 1200 inverter, applies to the remote panels available for many other brands of power inverters as well.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.
We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter months, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so while you'll occasionally find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. We've now transitioned from "long-timing" for six months a year, to living and traveling in our RV full-time.
We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
