Could somebody tell quickly tell me what this should be set at? It's the furthest button on the right on the Dimensions control panel on the OnePlace center and it's labeled "CHARGER DRAW -SET INPUT."

I'm assuming that it should be set on the maximum setting of 25 Amps under normal conditions (30 or 50 Amp shore power)?

What conditions should it be lowered?

Thanks!

It should be set to 25A all the time unless you're drawing heavy loads on a low capacity feed. I lower mine when I bring my little Honda-1000 camping because the 25A setting will trip it every time.

Thanks, Jeff. I'll leave it on 25 Amps then.

It is nice to have an adjustable charger input. Since we have 400 watts of solar I can set it to 0 or 5 amps when plugged in on shore power. I can keep my carbon foot print a little lower It is useful when on a weak 30 amp shore power. The batteries will charge fine at 10 amp input (if you are in one spot for a while) and will give you more power to run other items without the ems kicking in. Also keeping it on a lower setting will exercise your batteries a bit more. I like to play with all of my systems, if you don't leave it at 25 and call it good.

I have done the same as Jeff when I tried to run off of the honda 1000.

Thanks, Jim. So if I'm not going to run an auxiliary generator and am strictly on 50 Amp or a strong 30 Amp, there should be no need to change it from the 25 Amp maximum setting, correct?

How will I know if it needs changing, though?

Note that max 25 amp for charge is okay for wet cell batteries. But for AGM type batteries should have the charge setting limited to 15amps. This is per several deep-cycle web sites I have come across over the last couple of years.
