Decades of diagraming things in the IT biz. Since I'm on a Mac (no Visio) and I'm too damn cheap

Icons for individual items like alternator
, battery, etc. are made using mfg pictures and GIMP
for cleanup. Lots of better ways to do it but its what I have.
Back to the schematic. You are correct there are two DC outputs/inputs.
From the Victron manual "Two DC outputs for charging
The main DC terminal can supply the full output current
. The second output, intended for charging a starter battery, is limited to 4A and has a slightly lower output voltage."
There doesn't appear to be any configuration for the #2 circuit. It is for charging a "starter battery". No more information than that. Guess I'll find out.
Does anyone have a comment on the switches (1, 2 & 3)? All good?
For Shore power
, there are two 30amp receptacles on the stern. One goes to an AC panel (Shore 2) that supplies the Air Conditioner.
Even though the Victron has a #2 AC output that shuts off when shore power
(or generator) is not available, I don't think I can use that for the Air Conditioning
as that has a 30 amp breaker.
