Problems with Heart Interface Inverter/Charger
I have a Heart Interface Inverter/Charger, which appears to be in the older range. The problem is that in the middle of the night (twice now--and this is without any appliances other than a fan on), the I/C starts turning on and off, repeat, until I turn the whole unit off. I "fixed" the issue the last time by turning one of the settings off (the "invert" was mistakenly pushed), pulled everything out (shore power, lines into the inverter) and then restarted, which appeared to work.
Fast forward a few days, and the system is repeating the issue although I didn't have time to unscrew the inverter to reset it the way the boat electrician alerted me I would need to if it happened again. I am hoping that a "reset" will fix this issue again, but anybody have any experience with this?
I just bought the boat not even two months ago and I'm a newbie boat owner (but have lived aboard for a couple of years). Help!
