Hi Guys, looking for a little bit of advice if possible.
I have recently purchased some pre-loved Victron equipment which I am very excited to get wired in and in use. I plan on fitting everything I've just purchased in to a motorhome conversion. I purchased a great deal including a Phoenix MulitPlus Combi 12/800/35, colour CCGX control panel, a Carlo Gavazzi monitor (not required I believe) and 2x large Odyssey 214ah agm batteries. I also have a 150/70 MC4 MPPT solar controller with 2x 270w panels.
I have a couple of quick questions I'm hoping someone in the know will be able to fire a quick answer to.
In regards to wiring in a RCD consumer unit for trip protection, should this be wired from the mains before going in to the Combi or on the 240v output from the combi or both (needing 2 consumer units)? If a consumer unit goes before the combi, what amperage would be required for the RCD & MCB for the combi as the unit says it offers 35a of battery charging when on mains yet most camp sites usually only offer 10a-16a on hook up?
The pre-loved equipment I purchased was wired for a residential battery back up power system, does anything need changing inside the combi unit as it will now barely ever be on mains power, only if on hook up at a campsite which will be a rarity (while I own it anyway) or is it a case of pretty much plug & play?
Is the Carlo Gavazzi energy monitor not required for my above purposes which came with the bundle deal I purchased (if not, I'll sell that on)?
Hoping someone can shine some light on the above and clear the confusion.
Thanks in advance
