starting in manual parallel mode
. With it on the battery
side you would need to remove a lug or fuse in order to isolate
a bad bank while at the same time allowing the other bank to do everything.
The ML ACR can
be used for this but is less than ideal because if you want charging
capabilities from say solar
, when you are not there, then you'd want it where you put it. In a bank failure, where it is now, provides less flexibility and isolating ability of banks....
I generally prefer a simple on/off emergency
switch on the loads side of start & house then an ACR or Echo on the batt side....
