This was a concern of mine when I first started my transition to LiFePO4 and solar. I had two inverters (one for residential fridge, one for the rest going through a sub panel), a converter/charger and two solar charge controllers. This turned out to be too complex. But it had lots of redundancy.With having an 'all in one', what happens when that fails? Does it become 'all is none'? I would rather have individual components so when something fails, then it would be one component.
Something to think about.
I grew weary of trying to remember how all of this worked and there is no chance my wife could operate this system, so I installed the MPII and that eliminated all of the complexity. Sure, I only have one inverter and the charger is now part of the inverter, but now the system is plug and play. It just works. I retained the dual SCCs because I am going to add more panels. I think this simpler system is more reliable than the redundant system. And I get a cool display in the camper.
