    Changed Shunt from 100 amp to 300 amp

    I'm not sure. I do know there is only two options on the meter, 50 amp or 100 amp. I think I have found a pair of meters that are 300 amp and shouldn't take too much cutting to my existing mounting board, so minimal work to replace.

    Changed Shunt from 100 amp to 300 amp

    Thanks. Yep. Max setting is 100 amp for sure. Going to look to replace.

    Changed Shunt from 100 amp to 300 amp

    So I upgraded my house battery to 4x100 ah batteries in a 2s2p configuration from a 200ah 12 volt. I had a battery monitor system, which worked well with a 100 amp shunt. I rewired the monitors to the new setup. Old monitors max at 100 amps in settings. New shunt is 300 amps. Voltage is...

    3000TL LVM -24P and 4 Battle Born Batteries

    It can be loud when charging or running a fairly heavy load. This travel trailer has a window type AC that is incredibly loud, so I'm very used to the noise. I have to sleep with a fan on since I'm a light sleeper, so for me it is not bad. If someone likes quiet when sleeping, I wouldn't...

    3000TL LVM -24P and 4 Battle Born Batteries

    Not a lot of interest in this thread. Should I move it to another thread? Not a learned person on forums and such as I avoid posting on social media and forums (except for this one and a motorcycle forum 20 years ago). Maybe I'm not really adding value, which I totally understand.

    3000TL LVM -24P and 4 Battle Born Batteries

    I called Battle Born. Answered on the 2nd ring the day after Thanksgiving and they stated 100 amps is perfect at this configuration.

    3000TL LVM -24P and 4 Battle Born Batteries

    Final picture less the cable clamps. My screws were to small. Not super pretty, but it works!! Just need to wire my monitors from the house battery to the Battle Borns.

    3000TL LVM -24P and 4 Battle Born Batteries

    I'm curious. With 4 12v 100 ah Battle Born batteries wired in a 2s 2p configuration, what is the safe charging maximum? I have it set at 50 amps, but was not sure if it can safely be more at the above configuration. Should it be less?

    3000TL LVM -24P and 4 Battle Born Batteries

    Was going to wait until I bought my house with a solar shed, but I couldn't stand it. Been installing this in my 18 ft travel trailer. Batteries are ready to go, but Growatt is not wall mounted yet. I have just tested plugging the 30 amp shore power directly into the Growatt with an adapter. I...

    Battleborn and Growatt 24 volt 3000 watt

    I'm not an electrician, but whatever happened worked. Crazy. He said two prong wouldn't notice the difference, but 3 prong would short circuit.....per dear old dad.

    Battleborn and Growatt 24 volt 3000 watt

    Well, I'm stupid. Should have called my Dad earlier. He has a GED and was a "bug man" spraying for cockroaches. He is retired now. He looked at what I had done and said my polarity was reversed based on what I had told him. He was insistent that I wired wrong. Colors looked right to me, but he...

    Battleborn and Growatt 24 volt 3000 watt

    The strange thing is, I would cut the inverter off and back on with only the 3 prong extension cord (has a power light in the cord) and it would blink on and off the same way with nothing connected. It then wouldn't power a space heater. When I plug the two prong space heater directly up to the...

    Battleborn and Growatt 24 volt 3000 watt

    So I tested the Growatt 3,000 all-in-one with my travel trailer. I will not have my shed for a while, but wanted to see what it can do. Issue. If I plug anything into it that does not have a ground, it runs just fine. When I hook up a 3 prong with ground, it seems to hate it. It will not run a...

    Battleborn and Growatt 24 volt 3000 watt

    Sad sad. Just saw Will's review of the newest (and great) batteries. Wish I didn't order the BB's. Dont get me wrong. They are amazing batteries with an equally amazing warranty, but for the price, quality and capacity of the SOK, I'm having buyer's remorse!!!!!

    Battleborn and Growatt 24 volt 3000 watt

    I'm just using the All-in-one. No different system. I do have a 40 amp Renogy MPPT as a back up along with a 2,000 watt 12 volt inverter. I like the convenience of the 24 volt box, but do not like all my eggs in one basket.

    Battleborn and Growatt 24 volt 3000 watt

    Made some good money on a stock play. Just bought two more battleborn batteries. I have 4 now!!!

    New workshop!

    That is great!!! Wondering about the utility of the lift. I guess lights are really high to replace!

    24v powerwall with "New A123" cells from bigbattery.com... any good?

    Jumping in. I was about to purchase 2 more Battleborn batteries to make a 24v 4800kwh system. This price is making me take a step back. Nearly an identical cost (with shipping) but double capacity? I'm having a hard time commiting to Battleborn as much as i like them. This could be a good...

    Battleborn and Growatt 24 volt 3000 watt

    I tested the unit this weekend with limited solar input and the two Battleborns. Pushed 1800 watts with a hair dryer for about 10 minutes. All seemed to function. Cant push to the max 3,000 yet, but maybe the wife will let me get two more batteries to test. This week I'll test the transfer...

    Battleborn and Growatt 24 volt 3000 watt

    Thanks. That configuration seems best. Do you think I should use another MPPT controller other than what is already in the all-in-one Growatt?

    Battleborn and Growatt 24 volt 3000 watt

    Hello all. I bought Will's book probably close to two years ago and have played around with Solar on a limited scale for a small travel trailer. I'll be moving into a house this spring that has a perfectly sized shed.....Solar shed. I'll be building off my existing panels (10x 100 watt, 12...
