    Problems with gfci inverter outlet

    Hi, I have a solar setup in my van with a xantrex 2000 prowatt inverter. It has gfci outlets on them. I just got my minisplit ac unit hooked up on the back of my van. THe problem I'm having is it trips the gfci outlets on the inverter. Now if I plug it into my garage gfci outlet it trips...

    Does either parallel option work the same?

    Thank you. That was helpful. I'll make the wire the same as well.

    Does either parallel option work the same?

    I have 2 batteries, both 280amp lifepo4 and both are using overkill 120amp BMS. I want to wire them in parallel to keep my system a 12 volt system(all my components are 12 volt). It would be easier to wire each battery directly to my pos and neg on main bus bar. However do I need to wire...

    Overkill bms keeps shutting down discharging.

    I found the problem. I accidentally cut through one of the temp sensor wires while taping the cells together causing it to have a false low temp. reading. I need to fix or get a new temp sensor wire.

    Overkill bms keeps shutting down discharging.

    and just a followup. When I disconnect the bms and run my inverter straight off my lifepo4 batteries it runs the microwave and 1300 watt heat gun fine. It's something with the BMS and I can't figure it out.

    Overkill bms keeps shutting down discharging.

    I'm using a overkill bms on my 280ah lifepo4 batteries. It was working fine in my system. I took the battery apart to top balance these new cells using CV cc device. Charged them up and then reassembled into pack with bms. Hooked it back up into my system but now with the slightest load it...

    Questions about stand alone converter

    thank you. Yes, all the ground wires are on the 12 volt side to one chassis ground.

    Questions about stand alone converter

    I meant the solar, dc to dc and inverter are all off grid, no earth ground floating system. The xantrex inverter is gfci and I don't know how it's wired inside, but by introducing shore power into that system occasionally with the aims converter wired into the bus and battery I didn't know if...

    Questions about stand alone converter

    Here is my setup. I feel mostly confident about most of it. However, I've added an aims converter to charge my "floating" system when at campgrounds through the campground power pedestal. I will plug the converter into the shore power but the 12 volt side is permently wired into the main...

    Totally confused about bonded and grounded ac side inverter in isolated van solar setup

    Since I'm really only going to plug the minisplit in and maybe my laptop at one time, I was going to plug straight into the inverter, but there is no breaker or ground if I do that right? Could I wire a plug from inverter to a small breaker and then to the minisplit? Is it dangerous to just...

    Totally confused about bonded and grounded ac side inverter in isolated van solar setup

    Hi, I'm a total newbie but trying to learn quickly. Here is my setup I'm building and what I will be powering. 800 watts of solar panels, victron 100/50 charge controller, 270ah lifepo battery and I bought a 2200watt giandel inverter to power a few items (pioneer 9000k minisplit ac unit...
