Xantrex Lithium Smart Battery Solution

The 2020 Winnebago View and Navion feature optional Lithium Ion Smart Batteries from Xantrex which provide even more off-the-grid capabilities in the best-selling Class C diesel.

WATCH OUR VIDEO REVIEWING THE LITHIUM ION SMART BATTERIES

The lithium system in the Winnebago View enables your appliances to last longer, the charge time of the system to be shorter, the lifespan of your battery system to be longer compared to lead-based batteries, and the system is half the weight of typical lead-based batteries. In fact, a lithium battery’s lifespan runs from 3,000 cycles to 5,000 cycles while lead-based batteries run 300 – 800 cycles.

To operate the Xantrex Lithium Ion Smart Batteries, push the button on top of the battery or initiate a charge cycle. To initiate a charge cycle you must plug into shore power, run the batteries off a generator, start the vehicle, or charge the batteries off the solar panels. If you are wanting to check the voltage on the batteries – you can check the OnePlace panel, the solar charger, the inverter control panel, or download the Xantrex app from the Google Play Store or the Apple Store. In addition to checking the voltage on the app, users can check the battery temp to ensure they are running the batteries within suggested temperatures. The usable temperatures for the battery are -4° F – 131° F and the chargeable temperatures are 32° F – 113° F.

Users may wonder how they can maintain the battery charge when they are away from the RV. To maintain the battery charge, you can turn off the inverter and all loads and let the battery charge off solar. If you don’t have solar, you can turn off the batteries to prevent parasitic draws. If you are looking to put your RV into storage, you will want to charge the batteries to 80% before putting the RV away. For full storage information, please refer to the user’s manual.

7 Reasons why the Winnebago View is Better than the Tiffin Wayfarer

Featured Floorplan: Winnebago View 24D

Top Questions from our Webcast on the 2020 Winnebago Revel

In one of our more recent webcasts, Ron Lichtsinn reviewed the 2020 Winnebago Revel built on the new Mercedes-Benz VS30 chassis. You can watch our webcast here. In that webcast, we took several questions LIVE about the Winnebago Revel and what has changed between the 2020 and the 2019.

Winnebago Revel

Watch our webcast on the 2020 Winnebago Revel here.

“What are the top exterior changes in the Revel?”

“What are the standard wheels vs. the optional wheels and are the tires the same? 

The Revel features the Method 701 performance wheel upgrade paired with the BF Goodrich TA KO2 all terrain tires. The 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. The BF Goodrich TA KO2 all-terrain tires are the perfect pairing with the new wheels since they feature a longer tread life in dry pavement conditions, with aggressive all terrain traction perfect for gravel, rocky and snowy conditions. Watch our video as we review the tires and wheels here.

“How is the air conditioner different from previous models?”

In the 2020 Winnebago Revel, the ultra-quiet Coleman-Mach non-ducted quiet (NDQ) air conditioner is the optional air conditioner available in the Winnebago Revel. It expected to be 8 – 10 decibels quieter than previous models.

“What is the fuel economy with the new transmission?” 

With the new seven-speed automatic 7G Tronic Plus transmission, the Revel is expected to get 18 mpg highway. Our guests have said they got 16 – 22 mpg depending on terrain and how much they were traveling with.

“How does the power sliding door work?” 

The power sliding door in the 2020 Revel is a standard feature and can be switched on or off. The automatic door can be activated from the exterior sliding door handle, a button in the cab or by using the fob. And yes, you can leave the key in the vehicle and still unlock it.

“What are the exterior options?”

The 2020 Winnebago Revel is available in Silver, Pebble Gray, and Blue Gray full-body paint with an optional graphics package.

 

“How does the Rolef Screen work? 

New to the 2020 Winnebago Revel is the innovative Rolef side and rear screen door. The side screen door is attached by a strong magnet, so you can open it without having to unzip or slide a finicky screen door. The rear screen door is a full blackout screen with zippered window to provide great airflow to the coach. At the bottom of the screen you can also roll it up and still have access to storage in the rear. Watch our video on the Rolef screens here.

“How are the cab seats different in the new Revel?” 

The Revel’s comprehensive safety features include thoracic airbags placed in the driver and passenger seat. For those airbags to properly operate they need to be in either cloth, or in the case of the 2020 Winnebago Revel, synthetic leather. The seats are also extremely easy to swivel and adjustable. New this year, Mercedes-Benz added an adjustable, extended seating for taller drivers.

“What are the options for running the air conditioner when not connected to shore power? 

As we previously mentioned, the 2020 features a new, quieter air conditioner. The air conditioner must be connected to shore power either through campground electrical or a generator. For the A/C to run off a generator, you have to install a quick start (watch our video here to learn more). The Revel features wonderful air flow through the rolef screens, awning style windows, and ventilator fans if you prefer no air conditioning.

“Does Lichtsinn RV stock a plug and play solar panel for the portable port on the side of the Revel?” 

Yes, we carry a plug and play solar panel for the Winnebago Revel in our parts store. It is a 140-watt panel for $700.

“Where can I find Lichtsinn RV’s playlist of Revel videos? 

You can find our full video library on the Winnebago Revel here.

The Revel Story… New Side and Rear Rolef Screens

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 proven 4×4 Mercedes Benz 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.

5 Reasons Why the Winnebago View and Navion are Great RVs!

With new upscale details throughout, the View and Navion offer the freedom to live large in a compact coach. Combining quality with comfort, the View and Navion have been completely redesigned inside and out for an unparalleled Class C experience. We selected our 5 reasons why the Winnebago View and Navion are great RVs.

Reason #1 – The View & Navion’s Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity

Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity is the total weight of all cargo which includes you, your stuff, and all any freshwater you carry. The View and Navion’s occupant and cargo carrying capacity range from 1,100 – 1451-lbs, which are far superior to competitors’ OCCC. The View and Navion’s cargo carrying capacity is far superior to the competition because Winnebago invests in weight saving components like the highly durable, European-styled Italian Technoform cabinetry, who has been hand crafting cabinetry for high end yachts for years.

Reason #2 – The View & Navion’s Off-the-Grid Capabilities

A compact coach is the ultimate freedom vehicle and the last thing you want is to be tied down to a traditional campground. The View and Navion feature 2 large Group 31 batteries, 200-watts of solar, a 2,000-watt inverter, a 3,600-watt Cummins Onan Generator and a Compressor Refrigerator. The View and Navion also have optional lithium ion smart batteries available. Winnebago designed all these features into the Winnebago View and Navion to provide users with extended off-the-grid functionality – like never seen before in a Winnebago View or Navion. With the View and Navion anywhere can be your campground.

Reason #3 – the View & Navion’s SuperShell Sleeper Deck

The View and Navion feature the new SuperShell sleeper deck includes premium thermal and acoustic insulation, making the front bunk lighter and more comfortable than ever before. The SuperShell Sleeper deck also provides great space for storage when it isn’t being used as a bed.

Reason #4 – The View & Navion’s European Designed Automobile Door

In previous model years, Winnebago always had a best-in-class entry door on the Winnebago View and Navion. Winnebago took the best-in-class entry door to a whole new level with the custom-designed, automobile-grade entry door designed in Europe specifically for the Winnebago View and Navion. The new door is extremely sturdy, very similar to a car door, with dual latching points that greatly reduce wind and road noise. The inside of the new door features a sliding shade and in-door storage perfect for umbrellas, shoes and other outdoor gear.

Reason #5 – The View & Navion’s Premium Interiors and Smart Storage Design

In the living area, kitchen and bedroom Winnebago utilizes MCD shades. MCD Shades are both easy to operate and clean. MCD Night Shades are made of blackout fabric to block 100% of the light or made as a privacy shade which filters light into your RV. Both the proprietary ClearView and ClearView II screens provide an effective thermal barrier. The new window shades take the place of blackout curtains, cellular, vienna and silhouette shades, power visors, venetian blinds and other dated shades. MCD plans all shades utilizing CAD design and 3D software and manufactures with state-of-the-art computerized manufacturing equipment to ensure the highest quality and consistency. The View and Navion also feature new, smart storage features like the embedded paper towel holder and tissue dispenser. Another key design improvement is the roof wiring access port for technology. The roof wiring access port creates an easy wire path for outdoor equipment to the inside of the coach. This allows you to access to the roof to install your desired technology equipment whether it be wifi and cell boosters or satellite antennas. As equipment becomes outdated, this port allows for an easy change out and replacement for new equipment.

5 Reasons Why the Winnebago Vita is a Great RV!

The Winnebago Vita and Porto combine Mercedes-Benz fuel efficiency and durability with Winnebago’s legendary build quality and innovative features, a spacious interior and plenty of useful storage: the result is a compact and easy driving package that is perfect for solo travelers, couples or families. Here are our 5 reasons why the Winnebago Vita is a Great RV!

Reason #1 – Best-in-Class Holding Tank Capacities

The Winnebago Vita features best-in-class holding tank capacities including 37 gallons of fresh water, and 41 gallons of black and gray tank capacities – 35% more than the competitors. The Vita also has the occupant and cargo carrying capacity to hold that much fresh water without sacrificing weight for cargo or occupants.

Reason #2 – 200-Watt of Solar Standard

200-watts of solar help keep your batteries fully charged and extend off-the-grid use. The Vita and Porto’s solar system is also expandable up to 450-watts. Most RVs in this segment come with solar prep or solar as an option for an additional fee.

Reason #3 – Occupant Cargo Carrying Capacity

The Winnebago Vita and Porto are segment leaders for occupant and cargo carrying capacity. The OCCC is listed on the required yellow weight label that you can find inside one of the entry doors to the motorhome. The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, food, tools, and personal belongings, including the weight of all the fresh water that you carry. Even the weight you put on the hitch must be included in your cargo calculation and the total must be less than the OCCC for safe operation of your RV. Based on the option and floorplan selection, the View and Navion typically provide well over 1,000 pounds, while the new Vita and Porto were designed to provide up to 1,800 pounds of capacity.

Reason #4 – SuperShell Sleeper Deck

Winnebago’s exclusive SuperShell composite hull, featured in the Vita, is produced in a closed mold with injected urethane foam sandwiched between the fiberglass outer shell and an interior panel. This design and manufacturing method is similar to how a high-end cooler is constructed. This superior design strengthens the cab over area and improves sound and thermal comfort while also reducing the weight and the potential for leaks and squeaks. The design also reduced the number of parts and processes necessary to build the cab-over, improving quality and durability for our owners.

Reason #5 – Roof Access Connectivity Port

Easy wire path for outdoor equipment to the inside of the Winnebago Vita. Allows the owner to install their desired equipment – like WiFi boosters, antennas, etc. As equipment becomes outdated, this port allows for easy change out and replacement for new equipment/wiring to be run inside the coach.

5 Reasons Why we Think the Winnebago Boldt is Better than the Pleasureway Plateau FL

Here are the five reasons why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the PleasureWay Plateau FL.

Watch our video on the 5 Reasons Why We Think the Winnebago Boldt is Better than the Pleasureway Plateau FL here.

Our first reason why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the PleasureWay Plateau FL is Pure3 Energy Management System in the Winnebago Boldt. The Pure 3 provides complete 30 AMP whole coach electricity using a 3,600-watt pure sine inverter and simple one touch operation, compared to using multiple inverters and multiple startup procedures in the PleasureWay. The Pure 3 Volta Power Systems automotive grade 48V energy pack provides 11,600-watt hours of energy!  The energy pack is watertight, durable with the steel housing being the safest on the market, and batteries are climate controlled. The Boldt’s dedicated 58-volt alternator, or under hood generator, is twice as powerful as competitors. Its compact design keeps it out of the way of curbs and road debris. The MPPT solar controller and 200-watts of standard solar panels provides best in class solar absorption, up to 30 percent better than competitors, giving you more off the grid performance. The Pleasureway has a far smaller battery pack offering dual 100-amp hour lithium batteries, a smaller inverter at 2000 watts, and solar is an additional fee.

Our second reason why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the PleasureWay Plateau FL is Winnebago Boldt’s floorplan options. The Boldt comes in the 70BL and 70KL floorplans. The 70BL floorplan features sleeping for 4 with the dinette flex bed, a mid-coach bath, and rear twin beds that convert into cross-coach sleeping. The 70KL floorplan features a spacious galley, twin beds that turn into cross coach sleeping and a roomy rear bath with wardrobe. The Pleasureway Plateau FL is available in only 1 floorplan. The Plateau FL floorplan has a midcoach bath and a rear seating and sleeping configuration for only 2 people. The FL doesn’t have a dinette or swiveling cab seats, it has a rear sleeping and seating configuration that is a tight squeeze when the table is up and doesn’t have a ton of leg room.

Our third reason why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the PleasureWay Plateau FL is the bathroom configuration in the Boldt. Winnebago considered moisture buildup when they designed the bathroom in the Boldt. The bathroom surround is made from light-weight, durable and water-resistant ABS plastic. You will not have to worry about mold or mildew and cleaning will be a breeze. Pleasureway did not take the same considerations when designing the bathroom. The walls of the bathroom are made from wood paneling and covered in small Velcro dots you are supposed to hang a shower curtain on. The integrity of the Velcro dots will break down with usage of the shower curtain leaving your bathroom vulnerable to mold and mildew build-up.

Our forth reason why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the PleasureWay Plateau FL is the lightweight Tecnoform Italian cabinetry. Tecnoform cabinetry is Italian-designed, curved cabinetry that is extremely lightweight and highly durable. Tecnoform uses state-of-the-art materials and an environmentally friendly manufacturing process to create doors specifically for the Era. These beautiful, lightweight cabinets were designed to hold up to the most extreme humidity and temperature conditions without cracking, peeling, or warping. The Plateau uses heavy plywood cabinets that were not designed with the same stringent standards and take away from the occupant cargo carrying capacity in the Plateau.

Our final reason why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the Pleasureway Plateau is Winnebago’s superior build quality. In Winnebago’s 60 years of building RVs they have pioneered several construction standards that are now industry standard. Winnebago was the first RV company in the U.S. to manufacture compact RVs and campervans. Why buy an RV from any other manufacturer?

Battle of the Winnebago Compact Coaches

Lichtsinn RV’s Compact Crossing

Winnebago Vita vs. the Competition

With more than 14 years of Sprinter RV experience, Winnebago designed the innovative Vita and Porto to be the most trouble-free and easy to operate Sprinter class C in the industry. Best of all, the new Vita and Porto provide industry-leading Winnebago quality and performance at an affordable price. Here are a few of the advantages of the Winnebago Vita and Porto over the competition.

Watch our video on the Winnebago Vita vs. the Competition here.

Best-in-Class OCCC – The Winnebago Vita and Porto are segment leaders for occupant and cargo carrying capacity. The OCCC is listed on the required yellow weight label that you can find inside one of the entry doors to the motorhome. The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, food, tools, and personal belongings, including the weight of all the fresh water that you carry. Even the weight you put on the hitch must be included in your cargo calculation and the total must be less than the OCCC for safe operation of your RV. Based on the option and floorplan selection, the View and Navion typically provide well over 1,000 pounds, while the new Vita and Porto were designed to provide up to 1,800 pounds of capacity.

Increased Maneuverability – At just 24’7” the Winnebago Vita and Porto lead the class in maneuverability and allow users to park in smaller campsites that the competitor’s coaches may not be able to. The Winnebago Vita and Porto also have a 5,000-lb. tow hitch and plenty of OCCC to be able to tow a small vehicle.

Standard Solar – 200-watts of solar help keep your batteries fully charged and extend off-the-grid use. The Vita and Porto’s solar system is also expandable up to 450-watts. Most RVs in this segment come with solar prep or solar as an option for an additional fee.

1,000-Watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter – The Winnebago Vita and Porto’s 1,000-watt pure sine wave inverter safely powers electronics including the refrigerator, TV’s and certain 110V outlets from the coach batteries. This allows you to safely power your personal electronics without fear of a surge.

Dual Group 31 Batteries – The Vita has industry-leading battery capacity from the dual group 31 batteries providing 210 Amp Hours. The competitors either come with a single RV battery or dual batteries that do not have the 210 Amp Hours.

Connectivity Roof Port Wiring Access – Easy wire path for outdoor equipment to the inside of the coach. Allows the owner to install their desired equipment – like WiFi boosters, antennas, etc. As equipment becomes outdated, this port allows for easy change out and replacement for new equipment/wiring to be run inside the coach.

Unique Bathroom Layout – The bathroom door design in the Winnebago Vita and Porto 24P provides a large passageway to enter or exit the corner bath.
