I am setting up my RV with solar power and this is my first system. The solar panel is tested and working. It is putting out 32 volts in the sun. The controller is a victron BlueSolar charge controller 100/50 mppt controller. The battery is a bigbattery 12V OWL - LifeP04 - 170 Ah - 2.176kWh.
When I connect the battery to the controller it starts flashing "bulk". However, the battery never charges. The battery is currently showing 10.99V on the front display on the battery. On the bluetooth app, it shows the same and it shows 0 volts from solar and 0 amps from solar. It only shows the battery volts and the 'current state' shows 'off'.
I believe the controller is set up correctly. If I go into settings it is set for 12V, max charge of 50 amp, charger enabled, battery set to lithium iron phosphate (LiFeP04), absorption voltage is 14.20V, float voltage is 13.50 V.
I can't get any solar charge at all. If I leave it plugged in, the battery and the charger just shut off entirely.
