Don - now that you bought a new coach - you will need to buy and install things - just like me
Lucky/Ken/JB: I believe the Echo~Charge does need to be pretty much out of the weather. I considered and dropped the thought of installing it in the battery rack area. Please "think outside of the box" (pun intended) when you are looking for suitable places to stick the thing. I believe you could easily put the thing ten feet away if you use 12 or maybe 10 gauge wire for lead extensions. It will draw 15 amps under full load, so size the wires appropriately.
So far so good with the unit - it got fairly warm when first connected due to the discharged state of the starting batteries. It is pretty cool to the touch now that it isn't working too hard.
