Yes,

You could program the relay at your GX, in several logics

I have programmed for low soc and overload, but I want to programme for if day hasn’t charged batteries upto 100 percent for gen to kick in and top up , so system hits night fully charged , am I missing another setting? I wondered about something off of relay on mppt example day/ night lighting...

May be you can use the testrun setting, but it will then run dayly.
In the Assistants programming I don't see any time related setting.

@Matt drummond bell what about using the "periodic test run" feature, set daily, with a start time, and just set to "run until battery is fully charged"?
