Air Conditioner Runtime Test in the 2021 Winnebago Revel

We recently put the 2021 Winnebago Revel with the Xantrex Lithium System to the test. We took a blue gray Revel and parked it on our lot on a hot and humid summer day to test how long the air conditioner would run before depleting the system.

Watch our experiment here. 

In our experiment, we checked in on the batteries hourly with the help of the Xantrex BMS app available on your mobile device. With the app, we were able to check the batteries’ state-of-charge, temperature and more. During the experiment, we set the Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ air conditioner to kick on above 75 degrees. We also had the lights on and the refrigerator running. We found that the Xantrex system in the Winnebago Revel ran for 6+ hours before depleting the system.

Top Changes in the 2021 Winnebago Revel

Top Questions from our Lichtsinn RV Live: Introducing the 2021 Winnebago Revel

We recently held our Lichtsinn RV LIVE on the 2021 Winnebago Revel. In the LIVE, we covered all the changes to the popular Winnebago 4×4 product. You can watch that video here. We received several great questions from our viewers, so we compiled a list of the best questions. Read them below.

  1. What kind of batteries are in the 2021 Winnebago Revel? The 2021 Winnebago Revel comes with dual Xantrex Lithionics 125 amp hour lithium ion batteries, providing 1,600-watt hours of energy per battery or 3,200-watts total. These batteries provide up to 25 percent more capacity than competing 100 AH batteries such as battle born. 
  2. What is the warranty on the lithium batteries? 3 Years
  3. What all do the batteries power and for how long? The batteries will power everything inside the coach including the Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ Air Conditioner. You can watch our air conditioner run test on the 2021 Winnebago Revel to see how long we ran the A/C off the lithium system before it depleted the system. 
  4. Does the Revel require a soft start to run the inverter? No, it doesn’t. The new Coleman-Mach A/C starts slowly off the inverter so the inverter does not require a soft start to power it.
  5. Are there any issues with blocking the vents in the rear? It would only become a problem if it were to get extremely hot in the Revel. The lithium batteries begin to have issues at 113 °F
  6. Should you get a surge protector? Yes, it is a minimal investment to protect very expensive technology in lithium-powered motorhomes.
  7. How long does it take to recharge a fully depleted system when driving highway speeds? It does not take a long time at all to fully recharge a depleted system. Xantrex does have a mobile app that will give you the up-to-date reading on your lithium system.
  8. Did the exterior solar panel port get removed from the 2021 Winnebago Revel? It was not removed, rather it was moved to the rear of the coach. Based on Winnebago’s Voice of Customer research, they found Revel owners were keeping all the doors open in their unit and wanted the port in the rear. 
  9. Has there been a change in the insulation in the flooring or sidewalls? The insulation values are the same in the flooring and sidewalls. However, there was a change in the flooring material. For 2021, Winnebago upgraded the flooring to a plasticore, non-slip flooring. This is the flooring introduced in the Winnebago Solis. It is highly durable and extremely insulative. 
  10. What is the vertical tongue weight and towing capacity on the Winnebago Revel? The vertical tongue weight on the Revel is 500-lbs. with a hitch weight of 5,000-lbs. 
  11. Do the rear doors need to stay open for the exterior solar port and water panel? Yes, the rear doors need to stay open to access the solar port and water panel. Based on Winnebago’s Voice of Customer Research, they found Revel owners were keeping the rear doors open so they moved all of these items to a more convenient spot. 
  12. How suitable for a car seat is the Winnebago Revel? In the Winnebago Revel, there is capabilities for a child seat (with the 3-point seat belt) and a booster seat with the lap belt. 
  13. What is the difference in the lithium systems in the Winnebago Revel compared to the View and Navion? They are both Xantrex systems, the key difference is the Revel’s lithium system can power everything in the coach including the air conditioner. The View and Navion’s lithium system can power certain items in the coach. 
  14. Can you upgrade the inverter in the Revel? Yes, it would be possible. However, the size of the inverter grows significantly the larger it gets and we would need to find the real estate for it.
  15. Are the doors and chairs no longer powered? Correct, they are no longer powered. Mercedes and Winnebago decided to remove the powered feature from the VS30 chassis that were built with 4×4 capabilities. They decided it would be best to remove that feature for the units that can go off-road because they were opening when they weren’t supposed to.
  16. Is this a 4-Season Unit? Yes, this is absolutely a 4-season unit. Especially since Winnebago moved the water systems inside the RV. 
  17. What is new with the Awning? The awning in the 2021 Winnebago Revel is the Colorado Carefree Awning with Wind Sensor. This awning has a larger motor to pull in the awning quicker in a high wind situation.
  18. How does the heating system work? The heating system is operated by burning the diesel fuel thru the diesel burner or thru shore power. However, shore power is less of a quick heating source and more of maintaining heat source. 
  19. What are the fuel capacities? Can you add another fuel tank? The Revel has a 24.5 gallon fuel capacity and achieves 18-22 mpg on the highway. We and most dealers would not tap into the fuel source to add another fuel tank. Most Revel owners carry additional fuel canisters if they are looking for added miles.

Reviewing the VS30 Chassis on the 2020 Winnebago Revel

12 Reasons we love the Winnebago Revel

There is so much to love about the Winnebago Revel, a Winnebago Class B Campervan built on the Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis. As a true 4×4, the Winnebago Revel opens up a world of possibilities with off the grid capabilities and complete four-season comfort.

BLUEGREY 3 photo

Designed specifically for active outdoor enthusiasts, the Winnebago Revel takes a no nonsense approach to adventure with straightforward design and function driven features. Inside, the Revel’s unique features start with a floorplan designed around a Power Lift Bed/Gear Garage.  A full galley, including a 2.5 cu. ft. refrigerator, makes meal prep a breeze, while the all in one bath and gear closet boasts a cassette style toilet that eliminates the need for a separate black water holding tank. Welded aluminum cabinet face frames and snap in screens for fresh air circulation contribute to the Revel’s off the grid livability. Add a standard solar power system that is expandable to 510 watts, a dinette with a pull up table that converts to additional sleeping space, and many more innovative features and the result is the Winnebago Revel: quite simply the most off road capable RV Winnebago has ever built.

And all of this doesn’t even cover the half of why we love the Winnebago Revel. Below we have the top features we love in the Winnebago Revel.

  1. Taking full advantage of the proven 4×4 Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter chassis, the Revel’s 3.0 litre turbo diesel puts 325 lbs ft of torque through an on demand 4WD System, complete with high and low range and a hill descent mode for added off road capability. The VS30 Chassis includes on demand 4-wheel drive with low range which selectively stops individual wheels if wheel spin is detected. This system can be safely driven on dry pavement without the risk of damaging differential locks.
  2. An additional benefit of the Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis is the many active and passive Safety Features that come along with it. These safety features include: Active Brake Assist – In case of any oncoming danger, Active Brake Assist warns drivers and if necessary, will brake for them. As a class leading feature, it is the only system that can recognize and respond to pedestrians. Active Distance Assist Distronic – In high traffic areas, Active Distance Assist Distronic keeps enough distance between your vehicle and the one ahead of you to ensure optimal safety. Active Lane Keep Assist – If a driver is ever to unintentionally drift or leave their designated lane, Active Lane Keep Assist immediately alerts them. Traffic Sign Assist – Throughout travel, speed limits can be ever-changing. Traffic sign assist helps to identify the correct speed and adjust accordingly. Blind Spot Assist – Including Rear Cross Traffic Alert:  Blind Spot Assist provides warnings regarding vehicles in the blind spot while Rear Cross Traffic Alert warns about crossing objects when reversing.
  3. The Winnebago Revel is equipped with Automotive Grade Insulation in the Roof, Sidewall and Floor. With an R-Value of 4.4 per square inch, the Winnebago Revel insulation is odor-free and won’t settle as you go off road and in loose terrain. In addition to this the wall insulation is wrapped in a vapor barrier for added protection. Foam laminate insulation is used in the floor of the Revel which provides an in- floor thermal break within the floor insultation. The Revel uses European Style canopy windows with dual pane like properties that include a thermal break and solar reflective property. The Winnebago Revel insulation is built for longevity of the RV.
  4. Storage and living space are maximized with the Winnebago Revel Power Lift Bed that converts to a 49 x 79 inch cross coach sleeping surface with a 140 cu. ft. Gear Garage below.
  5. The Winnebago Revel has Heightened Ground Clearance with a shortened passenger side running board so that no modifications need to be made to the exhaust. This additional ground clearance allows you to more easily get in and out of remote locations without the worry of causing damage due to your Winnebago Revel.
  6. The Winnebago Revel has a Power Sliding Cargo Door with Keyless Entry and Interior Control Buttons making getting in and out of the side door of the coach a breeze.
  7. The Winnebago Revel has an optional Performance Wheels Upgrade Package with BF Goodrich TA KO2 all terrain tires LT245/70R17, featuring a longer tread life in dry pavement conditions, with aggressive all terrain traction perfect for gravel, rocky and snowy conditions.  The Method 701 wheels include bead grip technology to seat the bead while running with lower air pressures, a reinforced inner lip, and are one piece cast 356 aluminum with T6 heat treatment
  8. The Winnebago Revel is available with the optional Coleman Mach 10 Non-Ducted Quiet Air Conditioner which is 6-8 decibels quieter than previous models.
  9. The Winnebago Revel is equipped with a digital, thermostatically controlled Hydronic Espar Heat and Hot Water Source, with a diesel burner using the main diesel tank to heat a glycol mixture that is circulated thru heat exchangers for coach heat, and flow adjusted continuous hot water.  This also then heats the freshwater and gray tanks in subfreezing temps.
  10. The MBUX Infotainment System in the Revel makes trips more enjoyable with the Sprinter’s multitude of sophisticated MBUX infotainment optional features, including an oversized 10 inch touchscreen, wireless charging, USB and USB C connections, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.  This Infotainment System also Includes advanced GPS navigation built right in and MBUX Hey Mercedes voice guidance and artificial intelligence services. The MBUX system can be controlled with on system controls and steering wheel controls.
  11. 11. The Winnebago Revel Roll-Up Side and Rear Screen Doors are already attached to the Revel so you just need to unhook and zip down to get them in place. The magnetic sides on the screen doors allow you to quickly get in and out of the coach while your screen is down and also secure your pet from getting in and out with Velcro closures. The screen doors provide air flow and eliminate pesky bugs from getting inside your coach. The rear coach roll-up screen includes a full shade rolling all the way down with a screen window for visibility. This screen also provides security from people seeing what is in the gear garage of your coach when the rear doors are open.
  12. The Revel has an All Metal Roof Rack and a detachable, movable Ladder. The ladder allows access from various exterior locations around the coach.

These above features, include the many features we love in the Winnebago Revel.

The power and durability behind the Winnebago Revel on the Mercedes Benz VS30 Chassis coupled with its function-fueled design, powered by the reliability of a 3-liter turbo diesel engine and the freedom of on-demand 4WD…means off-road is never off the table.

  1. In terms of the Truma System, can I use it to heat my coach when I don’t have water in the coach? Yes, it can be used if the RV is winterized.
  2. Are all Winnebago B-Vans 4-Season RVs and what does that mean? As of today, all campervans from Winnebago are four-season. While that is a loose term, for us can you use this in cooler temps? Winnebago has added automotive-grade insulation to all of the campervans and has fully enclosed pressurized water lines. The Travato and the Boldt have heating pads on the holding tanks allowing guests to dump the tanks in sub-freezing temperatures, while the Revel has a cassette toilet.
  3. How do these vans come from the OEM – Mercedes-Benz and Ram – Is Winnebago improving the insulation or any other improvements? The chassis will come as a shell, with exposed sheet metal. Winnebago adds all the insulation and builds the interior components of the campervan. Winnebago is an accredited upfitter of Mercedes-Benz and Sprinter which allows them to add functional windows, unlike some competitors.
  4. Why is my lithium pack not charging? The shut down temperature in the Pure3 system is 37 degrees and if it hits there the lithium pack will not charge.
  5. What has the best ground clearance? The Winnebago Revel has 8” of ground clearance and the Winnebago Travato has 7” of ground clearance.
  6. What is 4WD offered in? The Winnebago Revel (standard 4WD) and it is optional on the Winnebago Boldt.
  7. What are the key differences between the Winnebago Boldt and the Winnebago Era? Why is the Boldt more expensive? The Boldt has the Pure3 lithium system while the Winnebago Era has the Cummins-Onan LP generator is the key factor that drives the cost.
  8. What is the best campervan if I want to bring several passengers? The Travato and Revel have seatbelts for four while the Boldt has seat belts for up to 6.
  9. What is located under the bench seat in the Travato 59G? In non-lithium Travato it houses the freshwater tank, in the lithium Travato it houses some of the Pure3 system components.
  10. What are our guest’s overall experiences with homeowner associations (HOA) on campervans from Winnebago? Overall, they are favorable. Winnebago uses automotive-grade paint with sleek exteriors that do not look like your typical RV. We have guests that pull the small exterior graphics – like the Winnebago logo to really make the van look stealth.
  11. Will the new Eras have similar insulation to the Winnebago Boldt? Yes, it will.
  12. What is the timeframe on the Winnebago Solis? We are expecting our first Solis at the end of January 2020.
  13. How easy is it to use the pop-top in the Winnebago Solis? It is very easy to use!
  14. Will the Era have the same chassis options as the Winnebago Boldt? Yes, it will have the same creature comforts and safety features as the Winnebago Boldt.
  15. Can you use Sumo Springs on the Boldt? Yes, there are options from SumoSprings on the Mercedes-Benz chassis. However, it is one of the most comfortable, best-riding vehicle Winnebago has made.
  16. Can you install a muffler for the generator? They are typically called a resonator. They improve the exterior noise of the generator.
  17. Can I sleep with the bed in the Winnebago Revel half way up? Yes, you can use it in any position.
  18. How does grade-braking work on the Boldt? It uses the power of the transmission to assist in your braking.
  19. Where do we see the Winnebago Solis entering our lineup? We think it is a new segment based on the features. It is built to be rugged and durable with the underscore being simple.
  20. What is the fuel economy between the chassis offerings? The ProMaster is about 16 – 18 mpg and the Sprinter is typically seeing 18 – 21 mpg.

The Winnebago Revel

Winnebago Revel

Designed specifically for active outdoor enthusiasts, the all new Winnebago Revel takes a no-nonsense approach to adventure with a straightforward design and function driven features. Taking full advantage of the 4×4 Mercedes-Benz VS30 Sprinter chassis, the Revel’s 3.0 litre turbo diesel puts 325 lbs.- ft. of torque through an on demand 4WD system, complete with high and low range and hill descent mode for added off road capability.

Inside, the Revel’s unique features start with a floorplan designed around a Power Lift Bed with a 140 cu. ft. gear garage below. This allows for a 49 x 79 inch cross coach sleeping area. A full galley, including a 2.5 cu. ft. refrigerator, makes meal prep a breeze, while the all in one bath and gear closet boasts a cassette style toilet that eliminates the need for a separate black water holding tank. Add a standard solar power system that is expandable to 510 watts, diesel powered Espar hydronic heating and hot water, a dinette with a pull up table that converts to additional sleeping space, and many more innovative features and the result is the new Revel: quite simply the most off road capable RV Winnebago has ever built.

Storage and living space are maximized by the flared body and Power Lift Bed that converts to a 49 x 79 inch sleeping surface. Welded aluminum cabinet face frames, dual pane windows with insulated shades, snap in screens for fresh air circulation, and an available quieter Mach 10 NDQ AC system all contribute to the Revel’s off the grid livability.

Winnebago Revel Highlights:

  • 4WD Mercedes-Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis
  • All-in-Gear Closet and Wet Bath
  • Powerlift Bed
  • Gear Garage
