    gfci outlet - did i break it?

    oh, i did break it but it's cool cuz it's the ground wire and my van solar system doesn't have a ground anyway. also, i guess i can make these connectors work with these crimps:

    gfci outlet - did i break it?

    i didn't realize the screws weren't meant to come out and i guess i forced it with an impact driver / screw driver attachment. doesn't seem to wanna thread back in. also, i'm not sure i can even use these with stranded wire? the screws don't pop out at all - they're just mean to close an open...

    LiFePO4 settings for EPEVER 40a 4210an - parameter error

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ the battery representative seemed to think the settings were okay with the exception of the over voltage disconnect which i can't set lower than 16v, at least not through the mppt. i'll try, at some point, through my pc.

    LiFePO4 settings for EPEVER 40a 4210an - parameter error

    talked to the battery manufacturer about my current settings as well as the SCC manufacturer and figured i'd upload their responses here for the historical record. i suppose i'll replace both charge controllers with one rated for the total amperage at some point. hope they'll be okay until then.

    LiFePO4 settings for EPEVER 40a 4210an - parameter error

    there's no such setting using the mt-50. unsure how i'd go about it otherwise.

    here are my current settings. i think the only things i've been able to change thus far are to "user" from flooded or whatever the default was (there's not lithium setting on this iteration) and batt. ah to 170ah (the amp hours of any 1 of the 4 batteries. should i be setting it to the total of...

    i tried these settings: https://diysolarforum.com/threads/charging-lifepo4-batteries.26148/ but i keep getting parameter errors. i'm running 4 12v 170ah each LiFePO4 batteries from bigbattery.com in parallel. running 2 epevers, 6 solar panels each.
