  1. That answers that. You will need some form of external NE link. Easiest and simplest is a switch between NE on the output of the inverter. I put mine in the consumer unit you just have to remember to switch over when changing to/from shore power. It can be done with a relay but you will have to think about sequencing as if NE are connected when the shore power is on the shore RCD will trip.
  2. Relays do not energise/de-energise quickly enough to stop an RCD on shore from tripping. it will need to be the N/O side connected to the N/E and fed from a part of the circuit that is not live when shore power is on such as the inverter on. Or do as I did in the end and fit a manual switch
  3. Boat in Northamptonshire, house in Devon.
  4. Sadly dealers are wrong, I went through exactly the same with mine a few years ago. I would take the front panel off and look for a chip its about 20mm x 6mm with a paper sticker on it which should have a number on it which will be the software version. If it starts with 17 then it is working as best as it can unless you fit an external relay as I did. If it starts with 19 then you will need to get someone with the victron PC interface to reset the software as it cant be done on the dip switches. If you were local to me I could do it but it looks like you are not.

    EU nationals are denied vote in EU elections, so the elections are rigged, just what you would expect in a tin pot country. https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2019/05/23/uk/eu-elections-denied-my-vote-uk-gbr-intl/index.html https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/may/23/eu-citizens-denied-vote-european-election-polling-booths-admin-errors I have included the Grauniad link so the fascists can say its fake news.
  8. Just had a quick scan of the manual and it says default setting is on and its not adjustable with the dip switches. How old is the unit?

  10. EA are a government body so no need for VAT registration. BW/cart are VAT registered to enable them to claim VAT back on their expenses. Downside is they charge us VAT but when it was bought in the cost of licences/registration did not go up so practically VAT was not charged on registration.

    I've long wondered if its mere coincidence that Nigel has the same initials as the old brexit party NF (National Front)

    Important information for Brexit Party supporters today: 1. Remember to take a pen, you can't trust those establishment elites who will rub out the will of the people if you use pencil! 2. Also remember to write BREXIT across the ballot paper, really send out a message with more than a cross. 3. Sign the ballot paper, show you're a true patriot by putting your name next to your conviction to take back control.
  13. I seem to remember that some early ones had the relay but it wasn't implemented in the software, from memory needs to be software version 18xxxx or later for it to work 17xxxx didn't have it. But it may have been 19xxxx Assuming of course I am thinking of the right Victron product .

    Its the same transformer back in 2006 I contacted airlink and sugested they made a plastic caaed version of the 3.6kva transformer for use on boats. It was only about £30 more than the bare transformer then ETA I use one like this instead of a thermisstor http://www.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F263727499334
