Battery Charging Question
My solar is up and running. I bought the 400w kit from Renogy and the inverter too. All is good. I have been plugging straight into the inverter to work on the bus.
I have an intellipower 9100 charger currently plugged into the inverter and I’m keeping my start batteries topped off.
I have a go power auto transfer switch to go from inverter to shore power.
I bought a blue seas big knob switch so I can manually switch the charger between start batteries & house batteries. Also has OFF position.
SO....can I charge my house batteries (shore power) while my solar panels are also sending juice to those batteries?
And...on the other side, if I forget to turn the knob to OFF while I’m running the bus, I would be double juicing the start batteries.
Is this OK? Do I need something else?
I would never set the knob to “both” bcuz start batts are flooded and house batts are gel. The literature for the charger says it can tell the difference between battery types.
