Multiplus programmable relay

Hi I would like to use the programmable relay to signal my camper unit that the shore power plug is connected. Which relay mode would be best to send a 12v signal to the unit when shore power is connected and available? Best Kirsten

I'm not sure what you mean by 'relay mode', but to control one of the MultiPlus relays based on the presence of AC input:

1- Load a programmable relay assistant

2- Select which relay to drive (refer to the manual appendix for the location of each relay):

3- Select the desired relay action (on or off):

4- Select 'AC Input' as the switch condition:

5- Select AC Input 'Available' or 'Not available' and the time delay.

6- Load a 2nd programmable relay assistant and repeat the process so that you have one to turn the relay on and another to turn it off.

Hi Mark,

unfortunately my Multiplus does not switch from inverting to shore if connected to the shore power. Also my AC-Loads are accounted to the DC-Loads when connected to the shore power. Any ideas?

But unfortunately now the Multiplus does not start chgarging and feeding power into the ac-out if I reconnect to the shore power again? Thanks Kirsten
