Finally got my inverter and have a wiring question.
I am going to install it with a 30a outlet to the exterior and plug in the main power to it to access. In order to do this I must install a relay to disrupt the converter/battery connection. When the inverter is powered up the relay will open and the charger will no longer provide power to the battery. So, as is obvious, I am neither an electrician nor electrically inclined, and therefor want to get a clarification before I go slicing and dicing.
Investigation has shown that the 12v controller panel block has four wires (black, similar for white) in the same block. I have identified them as:
A. to the converter,
B. to the controller
C. to the battery
D. to the trailer hookup harness.
It looks to me as if I install the relay somewhere in the black wire between the panel and the battery I can accomplish what I want, disconnecting the charger from the battery without disrupting the remaining 12v service.
The only other complication is that the solar panel goes directly to the controller as does a separate set of wires from the battery but I think this is drawing from the battery and has nothing to do with charging.
Am I correct in this or am I overlooking something?
