I have a question about Passthru on the Multiplus.
I am on a boat with a Generator (3KW power) and Battery Bank connected by a Multiplus 3000 (230v, 16a) to an AC system including a water maker. I have VenusOS running on a Pi.
When I want to run the water maker, it takes a lot of power from the generator (2000W). This causes issues if my battery bank also needs charging (600W example) as the power draw is too high for the generator to manage. This resultant high draw causes the generator to shutdown.
I have found the only way to get the water maker with an empty battery bank is to connect to the Multiplus to my laptop and disable the charging mode on VE.Direct. This puts the Multiplus into passthru mode and doesn't charge the batteries. I then need to re-enable the charging mode after the watermaker is done.
Is there any way to get around me having to change those settings or use VenusOS to manage this?
