Connect Multiplus 1600 to generator

Hi,

I would apreciate some help.

I have a mountain cabin and it is connected with 2 solar panels and 2 bateries.

Victron equipment> Multiplus 24V 1600

I would like to add a generator because in winter i am facing issues.

My problem is that I am living far away from the Victron dealer and it is very difficult and expensive to bring him to my place.

Where can i find exact instructions how to add a generator?

Could I manage the setup? Do i need something extra to do it or the Multiplus supports the setup?

Thanks

Hi @CMarusceac

It is not difficult, but if you don't know what to do please get an installer involved, you'll most probably need to configure the Multi also, or at least check if charging voltages are correctly configured.
