No, but the Outback Flexmax series of charge controllers can deal with both Solar and Wind input and have the option of a dump relay.... so, you'd simplify your charging setup to just two charge controllers.

One integrated charge controller, that can see the output from the alternator and solar (MPPT) and wind (dump regulated) and somehow, tell each of those players how to make a symphony? Rather than shutting down two at any given time, or letting them fight it out to control the charging?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
