Connecting eRVin to your RV
At this point you should have assembled the eRVin hardware then downloaded and flashed the eRVin OS image. This tutorial assumes you have an existing wifi network aboard your RV, preferably with full time internet access.
Connecting eRVin to your RV-C Network
To connect to eRVin, make sure your device is connected to the same wifi network as eRVin. Then open a browser window and type “coachproxyos” (without the quotes).
Step 4 – You should get a screen that looks something like the image below. Again, this is the screen on my phone, the screen will look different for you depending on the screen size of your device. If you don’t get connected, you will need to find eRVin’s IP address – click here for help on how to do that, then proceed to Step 5.
Step 5 – Once you have the coachproxyos link working, or an IP address, on a Mac or PC you can set a bookmark, but on a smartphone or tablet, ideally you now want to turn the eRVin web page into a quickly accessible “app” by making a shortcut of it. This will make it super easy to access eRVin by creating a dedicated icon that will take you directly to eRVin with just one tap. From Android this is very easy to do and I believe the process is similar for IOS.
For Android Chrome, tap the 3 dots in the upper right corner, this will bring up a list of options, as shown below look for Add to Home Screen or something similar and select it.
This will create an icon shortcut on the Home screen or desktop that will take you directly to eRVin, so there will be no need to open the browser and type the URL or IP address.
Do the same process to create shortcuts for your other devices as desired.
IMPORTANT – eRVin Powerdown Procedure
Now that your eRVin is up and running, please watch the short video below which discusses the proper power shutdown procedure. Failure to shutdown before removing power can possibly cause corruption to the SD card.
Loading a Configuration File
Next you will want to load a compatible configuration file.
