VIctron instalation and Blue Smart Charger IP65

Hi,

I would appreciate some feedback on my Victron installation drawing in general. I also have a question regarding the Victron blue smart IP65 charger.

I am installing this charger in a van. My question is: can this charger be plugged in even if the system is drawing DC power to appliances like the fridge? Also fuse recommendations on for a permanent installation.


Thanks heaps for answers // Henrik

Yes, you can use the dc loads while the charger is plugged in, but if the load current is greater than the charger current, the battery will not charge. With the exception of the MPPT, I would also move all of the charging sources to the positive busbar, but this is a personal choice.

You refer to fusing recommendations for a permanent set-up ? I see you have put in all the required fuses for the mobile set up, the fixed one should follow the same rules...
