Challenger Advanced Heater Controller
One of the most advanced diesel heater controllers currently available on the market. The Challenger Advanced controller has been built from the ground up encompassing the real needs of mobile home and boat owners. Built in leisure battery protection, automatically shuts down to save battery on low voltage. Over 500 sold in 2021
To connect via MQTT the wifi network that the controller is connected to MUST allow TCP port 1883. Some ISP's block this port by default.
The Challenger WiFi controller is an active communications device /portal.
Standby battery usage information
Standby battery usage: 0.21 amp with wifi on (ready and awaiting remote connection)
Standby battery usage: 0.031 amp with wifi off (no remote connection possible)
120 amp leisure battery, fully charged.
If we divide this by 50% that equates to 60 amps available. (We never want battery to drop below 50%, thus preventing any damage to battery)
Wifi On = 60 amp divided by 0.21 = 285.71 hrs (11.9 days) to battery at 50%
Wifi off = 60 amp divided by 0.03 = 2000 hrs (285 days) to battery at 50%
Above example is based on a healthy fully charged battery, example may vary depending on battery size and condition(s)
An effective battery charging routine is required to ensure that your battery remains in good condition

Our exclusive Challenger C series diesel forced air heaters can and will heat the average motorhome to 24 degrees in roughly 5 - 6 minutes. Can your existing lpg Truma do that? Can it do it while you drive? Challenger can! Ask your rear traveling passengers just how cold in can be back there.
HEATER SIZES - What is best?
2kw - Small to medium sized vehicle / boat

Engineer turned up, assessed job, spent a few hours working on motorhome fitting Challenger 4 kWh heater.
Was pleasant and informative and answered all my questions, couldn't have asked for more. All I had to do was supply a few cups of coffee.
Wish my experience of tradesmen over the last few years was as pleasant and reliable as this. Many thanks and would not hesitate to recommend ACLS to other van users.
