Went to IKEA yesterday and bought a new drawer front Exciting huh!
Well, I use a 100mm high front where I blank off the sink to fit various devices and switches and needed to rework it after fitting the new Multiplus.
Looking like this now ...

So left to right we have:
Victron Multiplus Control Panel. This is a remote version of the Multiplus Panel with extra flexibility. It adds the ability to change the maximum input current on the fly with the dial control (so in the photo above it is set at 16 Amps). This will be very handy when stopping off at a site with a low power hookup (It won't actually really affect how the electric inside can be used as when the EHU current is reduced, the Multiplus goes into 'Power Assist' mode and makes up the difference using the Inverter. So just end up using a bit of Battery Power and then extra Battery Charging afterwards).
Victron BMV-712. Battery Montitor that also has a relay system that can control the Water Heater.
Fridge Fan Control. There is a Temperature Probe attached to the Fridge Compressor and goes to this Controller. Once a certain temp is registered, the controller switches on its relay to power a small 12V fan aimed at the rear of the fridge.
Water Heater and Water Pump Switch Group.
Water Heater - The left switch is a 3-way switch for the Water Heater. In position I, the Water Heater is controlled by the BMV-712 relay which gets enabled depending on the battery SOC Level; In position II, the Water Heater bypasses the '712; and in postion 0 the Water Heater is off.
Water Pump - The right switch simply connects or disconnects +12V to the Shurflo pump.
'TBA' Switch. Basically this is not connected to anything at the moment and just a spare
'GEN' Switch. This is a switch that is connected to the Multiplus Remote Control Panel. When the switch is on, the Current set by the dial control is overridden by a value that has been previously set. I programmed this to 7 Amps to suit my P2200 Generator which has a maximum running power of 1700W to ensure it will not go into Overload.
When the switch is on, the display changes to tell you it is in the Generator override mode
