I’m grid tied (not selling, just using it as a backup charging sour
ce. I had a problem overnight... not 100% sure, but a rat may have been in
volved. I woke this morning To a Gen start error and no “AC1 in Goo
d” blinking. We’ve been doing well with the solar charging,
but we have a rainy week ahead.
When I got home from work I took a #8 heavy gauge extension cord and ran it
in as a temporary fix. As soon as I connected it it blew the circuit break
er. I disconnected everything and traced back to find nothing shorted throu
gh the extension cord. I tried connecting to the “AC2 in” A
nd that blew the circuit breaker as well. I disconnected everything, turned
the inverter off and disconnected it from the battery. I tested to insure
I didn’t have any residual power (I didn’t), then put the o
hm meter between neutral and ground (shorted, as it should be) then, when I
tested hot to ground - on both inputs - that was shorted, as well!
