RV Buddy Plus AUTO #1 Custom 50A 2-way switcher, 3' 14-50 plug cable to two 14-50 outlets
The fully automatic RV Buddy is here!
The RV Buddy Plus AUTO is a fully automatic 2-way switcher based on the original RV Buddy Plus. It allows you to share your RV outlet with your EVSE without having to flip any switches. Basic operation is simple, the RV outlet is always live and the EVSE outlet is only live when there is enough amperage available to charge your EV. When the RV is off it is drawing little to no amps so the EVSE outlet is switched on allowing your EV to charge. If the equipment in the RV is turned on at any time then the EVSE outlet is switched off, when the RV is powered down, power is restored to the EVSE outlet and if your EV needs charging it will resume charging. The switch over point is approximately 3.5amps.
Designed so other members of the family don’t accidentally start using power in the RV while you’re charging your EV. Especially handy to top your EV up while your away from your RV for the day exploring the park. It is Great for permanently parked RV's and RVers on the go. Housed in a solid 8x8x4 PVC gray box with configurable rear mounting tabs.
Available in several cord length's, This unit needs to be sheltered from the weather as it isn't waterproof. The 25’ version allows the outlet box to be placed under your RV away from the weather, this also allows you to keep your EVSE out of site under your RV.
For an example of how the AUTO switching works, see my demo video here: https://youtu.be/tWbsAitIe4I
Note: Some Appliances slowly ramp their power draw and/or don't draw significant current (over 3.5 amps) while running, which will cause the RV Buddy Plus AUTO, Electric Range Buddy Plus AUTO, Welder Buddy Plus AUTO to switch the EVSE outlet off or it may switch several times in a short period. For these Dryers we recommend either the PLUS version, that unit offers manual switching between outlets or adding the Delay Controller Upgrade Pak to the Buddy Plus AUTO unit, The delay kit solves this issue; Delay Controller Upgrade Pak. If you are using a Buddy Plus AUTO unit to share one outlet and charge two EV’s (no Appliance) then you will definitely need the Delay Controller Upgrade Pak.
Need some extra length between your Dryer outlet and Dryer Buddy or between the Dryer Buddy and your Electric Vehicle Charging Station (EVSE)? I custom build extension cords to the length your need and with the plug and outlet of your choice, see my extensions in the Adapter’s section for a few models.
