Note: There are a TON of things you can change/add in the Cerbo GX. It’s basically a fully functioning computer. The items above will get it so that your batteries are charging properly and your monitoring is all set up, but I encourage you to dive into the Cerbo GX and learn it’s full capabilities.

  1. Nathaniel Stephens (verified owner)

    Truly couldn’t say enough great things about EXPLORIST.life and this entire product package!! As a first-time van builder, the world of electricity seemed daunting, however, after stumbling across Nate & Steph’s detailed video series on YouTube I was confident this would be the best direction. In addition to the top-notch tutorial video and extremely well-organized shipment, they’ve been there every step of the way to answer questions and provide guidance on a couple of ‘oopsie’ or ‘rookie mistakes’ I made during the planning process. Oh so grateful for folks like Nate & Steph and will be looking to their shop for any of my future van-building needs. Cheers!
