Xantrex Bluetooth Panel & XC Pro 3000 Review - Mike Mas

Hello Forum Members - This review is on Xantrex’s new Bluetooth Remote panel which allows you to upgrade your XC or X systems to Bluetooth.

I recently installed both the Bluetooth panel and Xantrex's new High Frequency Freedom XC Pro 3000 inverter / charger in my RV. The new XC Pro 3000 watt inverter offers big performance like the Freedom 3012, but in a compact design, not much larger than their XC-1000 inverter. By teaming up Xantrex's new Bluetooth panel with the XC Pro 3000 provides big power and convenience in a small foot print. I'll soon release a review of the Freedom XC Pro 3000 on this forum.

Enjoy - Mike Mas

Does it do 150a charging and the things a Transform does?
There's a wifi(ish) set up for the 3012 so you don't have to be near the coach to use it like you do Bluetooth.
Is Size the only difference between this unit and a SIXTY SEVEN POUND 3012?

You'll be happy to hear the new unit only weighs 18.5 pounds

I have seen that Bluetooth Panel option mentioned for my Xantrex Inverter but can’t seem to find it anywhere.

Where did you get it?

Judge check here

https://www.amazon.com/Xantrex-Freed.../dp/B07G8639H7

The Bluetooth capability is in the remote panel and it is not a separate module. If you already have the remote panel you may have the BT capability and just need to download the bluetooth app (FXC Control).

I downloaded the app and will try to connect my inverter this evening.

I went out to the coach and tried setting up bluetooth the way the instructions say. and it didn't work. The remote control panel never entered the Bluetooth discovery mode. I'll have to do a little more checking. My inverter is the Xantrex Freedom X 2000.

Sorry you're having problem make sure your bluetooth is activated got to the app flip off then on the toggle switch on the upper right then hold down the excape button on the panel until the horz lines start blinking she will lock right in.

I downloaded the app and will try to connect my inverter this evening.

I already have the remote. It came installed from the factory but it does not have the Bluetooth option. However there are two versions:

One is part P/N 808-0817 (or 808-0817-01): and the other P/N 808-0817-02. The part number with the -02 is the one that has Bluetooth capability built-in.

The one that came from Thor is the 808-0817 and does not have the ability to use the Bluetooth app and I can't find the 808-0817-02 part number anywhere online.

Here is the link to the Remote Panel that is Bluetooth capable:

FREEDOM X Bluetooth Remote Panel

I have looked online everywhere and can't find the one with -02 part number. I am going to contact Xantrex and see where they can be purchased.

The correct Remote Panel also says Bluetooth on the lower left side of the panel:

Judge its very unlikely you have the panel since it was just released to me a few weeks ago. You might have a bluetooth display in the coach.

I determined I do not have the Bluetooth enabled remote for the inverter. I, like Judge, need to find Xantrex 808-0817-02. For me right now that is not a high priority since I have easy access to the current control panel. I will eventually do it so that all major systems on the coach are Bluetooth enabled. The inverter is the only system at this time that is not BT enabled. My priorities this weekend are installing my TPMS repeater and the Snap Pads on my leveling jacks.

Judge, if you find the remote please post the source. I will check with the parts person at General RV and see if they can order one.

Thanks for the reply the XC Pro 3000 performs like the SW 3012 with full 150 amp charging - my XC Pro 3000 only weighs 18 pounds and only a bit larger than the XC 1000.

Is the XC Pro 3000 available anywhere? I have search but no stores list it for sale that I can find. I can find X 3000 but not the XC pro 3000.

Hello before all this mess started it was to release at the end of this month - no telling now.


Be Safe Mike

I heard rumor is going to price below or close to the Freedom 3012 but I can't be certain of that.
