Is there anyway i can monitor my Victron equipment via wifi?

I've got a Victron MPPT and a Victron battery monitor installed in my camper trailer. The trailer is also equipped with a 4g router that runs off of 12v power. While i love the ability to monitor my Victron equipment via bluetooth, it would be amazing if i could remotely monitor the setup from home when i'm not at the camper trailer. Any solutions?

Yes, this is what VRM is for.
You'll need a GX device, like a CerboGX or VenusGX. However for a smaller system such as yours these might be a bit excessive.
A much cheaper alternative is to run the VenusOS on a Raspberry Pi and still take full advantage of VRM's remote monitoring features.
You'll need the Raspberry Piu and some VE.Direct - USB cables to connect your devices to the Raspberry Pi. The the Raspberry Pi can connect to the internet and pass data to VRM.
