  1. Just move batteries to heated area.
  2. Only comment I see him make on generator is the neutral. But I will not have the neutral hooked up from ulility lead in wires. So if generator is hooked up, no neutral. The way the adapters are formed should have power to both legs. Generator should work with the reduced power of generator. Only reason I be concerned about a generator is a snow/ice storm like we had this winter in Texas. Solar would not have worked. If for some reason it doesn't like the generator, I could wire in a bypass.
  3. Ok, the inverter doesn't state pass thru. States if solar not enough, it will pull from grid as needed. Also will work without batteries but I will have. It is an all in one unit. mppt built in. They actually recommend an autotransformer for it if spilt phase needed. They sell one but it is 5k only. So I would need 2. Same cost as Victron 100 amp So going to get the Victron unit.
  4. 30 amp unlikely. Never have in all these years. But am considering a small generator.
  5. Planning on the Victron 100 amp Autotransformer. Inverter output 240v. Autotransformer makes neutral for 120/240. I don't hook-up neutral on shore power
  6. Temperature calculator is fine for residential. We travel so I see no way to figure that in.
  7. I am getting conflicting info on this. I don't see a problem but others do. On a 240v output inverter we use neutral for L2 line input. Autotransformer makes new neutral. Some are telling me this won't work with shore power. Thoughts.
  8. My figures was on 4000 watts of solar. Run 2k to each unit. But Growatt also has a 8k unit and checking it out. So this may change.
  9. That is right on leaving valve. Someone likely messed with it.
  10. I will have 2 units so 2 mppt controllers. Split panels and carry less than 40 amps each. That will be 230ish volts so #10 wire work. 2 of them down vent pipe work easy.
  11. So you saying you never see the rated vmp from your panels. See that is what I was wondering. So if I am just a few volts over???
  12. Sorry about that. Who knows installed your Hitch? I had same problem. Shop had removed the angle iron and bolted hitch to bottom of truck rails. I had to correct it.
  13. Lower the Hitch then. Messing with the leveling valve will upset the Hitch function. What type of pinbox do you have? Can it be changed and lower camper?
  14. Don't adjust the leaving setting. Adjust pinbox to level.
