Hello @vee42,

there are many videos from Victron available, too. Without specifying more details what are you planning to do it is hard to help specific. Here some video links I found very interesting when started to work with Victron products.

Multiplus II introduction

How to configure a Multiplus

How a Multiplus works

Demo of Victron battery monitor

Victron VW Van Electrics Install - Episode 1 of 4

This list could be nearly endless continued ... There are so many videos, webinars and, and, and available. Incredible how much information of all themes is available: Ideas from how to use it for example in a sail boat or in a camper van, USV energy supply, ESS - Energy - Storage - System for the private household or company usage and setup for realy very big energy needs, too. Just use your prefered search engine. It is a huge and interssting theme with endless variations and all of them very good documented and interesting.

Have fun by reading and watching

@vee42 Best advice I can offer is to start reading the manuals, gather the battery manufacturer's specification etc. Understanding why and how is important if you want to self install / manage your system or components.

Below is another valuable resource for many of us. Happy reading.
