I have a 6kw Northern Lights generator
and a Mastervolt 2000W/12V charger/inverter with a remote
controller. Both are circa 2009. This morning when I started the generator
the charger/inverter started charging
as it should. After about 10 minutes I looked at the Mastervolt controller display and noticed that the charging
had stopped. I turned off the generator, re-started it and the charging resumed and everything was fine for the next hour+ until I turned the generator off.
Any ideas as to what might have caused the charging to stop? Generator or inverter
Another issue that may be related is that sometimes I have been unable to get the inverter
to start inverting by using the push button display on the controller. I have had to go to the inverter and cycle the switch from on to charge and back to on. After I have done this I can use the Mastervolt control panel
to turn the inverting function on and off, for a while. However, if I do not use the inverter for several hours then the inverter function can't be turned on via the control panel
and I have to go to the inverter and cycle the switch and then the control panel works, again, for a while.
Seems to me that I have a problem with the control panel but want to be sure before I order a new one.
Anybody have any thoughts? And aren't electrical
