Inverter RS 48/6000 , programmatically shutting off charger

I have a well with a solar pump. When the sun is out and the float switch is tripped in a tank, a 3kw / 240v dc pump starts using power via a controller.

Most of the time though, like 95% of the time, the 4kw / 240v dc array is being unused.

I'd like to hook an RS 48/6000 up to charge batteries and create 240v ac for a nearby cabin.

So I *think* I'd like someway to tell the victron controller "hey, stop using power when the pump wants it."

Worst case I could do some serious electrical engineering with high capacity relays and arduino but I'm hoping there's a simpler technique via built-in victron functionality.
