    Renogy 2000W Inverter Charger Grounding Issues

    I did something really stupid by connecting the neutral and ground together in my 30 amp sub panel supplying my inverter charger (inverter input side). I was in big hurry. I have an error code 02 Xantrex #817-2080. Do you think I permanently damaged my unit. Caught it after one cycle of...

    Have I damaged my batteries?

    My inverter slowly comes down in amps and then shuts down. It shows the stages. It doesn't seem to be shutting off immediately. When it reads 12.7 should I just keep running and see if inverter shuts down. It's suppose to do that. I have 2/0 and have a total distance round trip of 11.6 feet...

    Have I damaged my batteries?

    Help.. My system got up to 14.4 in the sun and then settled around 13.3. I then plugged in a 1200 watt load. Within minutes it showed 12.7 volts. Turned off load. So I turned on shore power and it took the charger about 20 mins to charge to 14.4-14.6. It showed bulk, then absorp then into float...

    Renogy Rover 100% reading at 13.3%

    I have validated voltage at battery and controller. How do I know that my batteries are 100%? When do you measure, at rest or under load? They read 13.3 at rest.

    Renogy Rover 100% reading at 13.3%

    Hi... This is a van with 400 watts solar and 2 100 ah batteries. I got my charger working and can use that. When it slowly starts shutting down to off, do I assume it's 100%? and then set or do I have to wait awhile?

    Renogy Rover 100% reading at 13.3%

    Thank you for response. Yes I am using lithium batteries, and the Renogy has settings for lithium. I have a shunt but can't set it till I have 100% in batteries and I am not sure how to go about that if I can't use the solar chargers 100% reading. I am missing something..

    Renogy Rover 100% reading at 13.3%

    I am just setting up my controller. It has run a few days . It says 13.3 volts most of the time. But it says it is at 100%. It's going to be super sunny here in Seattle and I want to get this thing set up right. I have no loads what so ever just the main battery bank, inverter and fuses to...

    Fusing problem.

    This will never be hard used watts wise. Maybe 4 or 5 minutes of small microwave. I was going to put 250 amp fuse on each battery to protect my friend from accidentally dropping wrench or something on the battery without a fuse. I see it in diagrams all the time people using 250 amp fuses. But...

    Fusing problem.

    Thanks for your reply. It seems all the wiring diagrams I see use 250 amp fuses for 2 parallel 100 amp batteries. I thought it would be even a little safer to protect the other battery in case a wrench was dropped on the un-fused battery. If I am running a 200 amp load wouldn't that blow one of...

    Fusing problem.

    I have 2 100 amp hour batteries in parallel. I put Blue Sea 250 amp fuses on each positive post. Now I am installing a 2000 watt inverter which also calls for a 250 amp fuse. That's 3 of the same size all together. If I had an inverter problem could I possibly take out all of them at once? Any...

    Distance from batteries to inverter charger

    Thank you, yes the manual said 2/0. I do have a possible problem . I have 2 100 ah batteries in parallel. I put a Blue Sea 250 amp fuse on each positive post. Now I have 3 250 amp fuses counting the inverter fuse. What do you think? Thanks...

    Distance from batteries to inverter charger

    Thank you so much. Does it make sense to run a portion of 4/0 in the circuit, say from the battery bank to the main shut off switch to the positive buss bar. Of all the research I have done and , you tubers, you are the first to mention inefficiency of unit and the ripple effect together in...

    Distance from batteries to inverter charger

    Thank you for your reply... The manual suggests 2/0 with a 250 amp fuse. I am using Blue sea #6006 battery switches, which are rated 300 amp continuous. I got it down to 13.5 feet.

    Distance from batteries to inverter charger

    My 2000 watt inverter charger manual says 5 feet from battery bank one way. I am about 8 feet away because I want to make the cut off switch easy to access. Round trip would be 16 feet compared to 10 feet. I am running 2/0 copper. Will that be a problem? Up date: I got it down to 13.5 feet with...

    Bluetti AC200p

    Thank you very much for your reply. I have already ordered 2 Sok 100ah batteries and a xantrex charger inverter along with other parts but I just can't see them figuring this stuff out. I think I can send some back. I will talk to them. Again thank you for your thoughts on this...

    Bluetti AC200p

    I have older friends (75& healthy) that want me to help them install a 400 watt system in their van. They don't plan on a conversion to a living on board setup, just to go on 2-3 week trips all around the country every few months or so. They boon dock 2 nights then find a shower the 3rd night at...

    AiLi 500A Battery Monitor

    If the main switch for a battery bank is turned off, does that mean the AiLi monitor has to be reset each time?
