    Growatt SPF trips GFCI occasionally.

    BMS instead of Fuse/Breaker

    This is danger zone - so here it goes: After watching a few Tesla Teardowns I realized - they don't have fuses anymore in most places.

    Autostart for Onan RV Generator - Growatt

    I got a Gasoline Onan 5500w Generator in my RV which I want to control with my Growatt NC NO contact. The Growatt switches when the battery voltages goes to low - and switches back when sufficient charged. Means I got a high signal while it's calling for charge. My Onan expects something...
