Hi, Over the summer I installed solar panels
and a mppt
when the boat was on a mooring
(works great). For the winter I am at a marina with power hookup for hot water
heater but I did not turn on the electric battery charger
. Will the 240v battery charger
become the dominant charger if I turn it on? The solar
charger is keeping the battery banks charged and running the refrigerator
fine for FREE. The 240v is metered so I will pay for every amp hour.
How do you guys do this? If the other charger sees the current
it may think that the battery bank is full and turn off (it may do that when my engine alternator
too !?!?). Is there a way to set the chargers (and alternator) that only one works at a time and does not cancel each other out?
