I just setup my Multiplus 24/2000/50 Compact and all seems to be working fine until I tried to turn on my AC.
while leaving the Multiplus in “on” position and plugged into 30amp shore power I turned my AC on and the surge when the compressor turned on made the multi shut down.
I have had my rig parked in the same place for the last 4 months and have had to run my Air con a few times before I setup the Multiplus.
I also tried to run it while my generator was running and that didn’t work either. But I used to run my Air Con off the generator no problem before.
I do have to switch on the “weak AC” setting to get the generator to work but still won’t allow the Air Con to work.
Should I be running the multi on “pass through”? (not sure how to set that yet)
Do I have something wrong in the settings?
does the Victron only allow me to use 2000 watts when I am connected to shore power? (Doesn’t make sense to me)
My generator is 4000 watts and still doesn’t let it happen.
I tried it with everything in the rig off except the Air Con and it still didn’t work.
I am running a 24/2000/50 multiplus compact and a 24 volt 206ah prismatic battery set from LYNX batteries out of Washington state. The battery connections use 4awg wire. Battery is rougly 2 foot away from the multi.
Is the only way to make this happen is to get a soft start for the air con?
