In Topic: Is Aldi The UKIP of the Supermarket world ?

Ah well glad I am on benefits (bus pass, winter fuel allowance, old age pension) as I like Aldi. They might not have the brands you recognise but in my opinion have in many cases far superior and quality brands. I am told by people that drink wine that their wine selection is as good if not better than the main supermarkets and cheaper

Also their chocolate

Yes I have the above photo and a Victron Phoenix multiplus 12 v 3000w 120 amp.

It has 2 sets of lights the charger side, then the inverter side. One button in the middle that is either on / off / charger only. Plus the above (exactly the same). Phoenix multi control. The there is this blue seas system which I think might be the whole system on or off. It says AC Main and reverse polarity lit up. Then there is the isolation transformer but that doesn't have any buttons. Then the solar charge controller which I have never touched. It just tells me how the solar is charging the batteries. So It would seem that I do have the combined charger and inverter.

I have almost the sane install. I just set the max input amps on the controller with the rotary knob until the led display shows the max output amps of the geny. I then switch to charger only, plug in the geny to the shorepower socket and all works normally.

A source has confirmed this as correct.

In Topic: drinking water?

In my youth, early 70's, I was in the merchant navy. Water was stored in double bottom tanks. We used it for washing, cooking and teeth. Since the bar was open 24/7 we didnt drink a lot of water except when used in pink gins!
