How to remove the power control panel?

I'm adding a bluetooth dongle to the MPPT, trying to gain access to the back of this panel, but couldn't see any visible screws or fasteners.

My 2013 Interstate has visible screws on left and right edges. Perhaps on your 2021 the screws in the PCS and Magnum Panel hold the panel on place. Try removing those screws to see what is behind the panel.

i removed the magnum panel to peek inside, the whole thing is held by 3 cabinet style "clips". they just snap into place. the whole thing will pull right out with a little force.

turned out i can't add the bluetooth dongle to the MPPT, since the "MPPT gauge controller" already occupied the VE Direct socket

I just bought this dongle today and we going to install it tomorrow. Did you ever find a solution?

nope, there's no available slot for additional device.

the bluetooth dongle is for other Victron devices that doesn't have bluetooth.

the newer MPPT now have built in bluetooth.
