Downloading and Installing eRVin Configuration Files
eRVin OS v0.5 or later adds the ability for you to easily download and install new or updated configuration files via a simple tap or click operation from the eRVin “app” (aka “dashboard”). No complicated computer knowledge needed!
A few configuration files are already baked into the image (v0.5 or newer) for assorted Entegra models between 2016 and 2019, however as new configurations are developed and/or older configurations updated, they can easily be downloaded from the eRVin server and installed. This post explains how.
Download and Install a New Configuration FIle
Open the System tab and scroll down towards the bottom. First you will want to download the latest file from the eRVin server so navigate to the Update Configuration Files group.
If the group is collapsed, tap or click the little blue arrow to the right to expand it, then tap the List Online Config Files button to fetch the currently available files from the eRVin server:
Click the checkbox for the file you need. If the configuration file already exists you will see a message like the following:
It is OK to overwrite it, there may be updates in the new downloaded file, click Overwrite. If the file does not already exist you won’t see the above message and it will automatically be downloaded to your eRVin system, during the download you should see a brief message indicating the status.
Now that the configuration file had been downloaded, the next step is to install it. From the system tab open the Install Configuration File group.
Click the Select RV Model dropdown, then tap the configuration you want.
Now click the Install Configuration button as shown below:
Just in case, you’ll have a chance to cancel, but otherwise click the Restart button. At this point the new configuration files will be installed and the eRVin system will be restarted. It can take up to 5 minutes for the new system to fully load:
