Introducing the New 2020 Winnebago Revel

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.

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.

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.

That wraps up our 5 reasons why the Winnebago View and Navion are Great RVs. You can see our Winnebago View inventory here.
