If any of you have mounted genset do you have a dedicated battery for it.. I plan on 4 batteries and wondering if I should isolate one of them for genset? Maybe with a bypass if I needed battery power if for some reason genset wouldn’t start?. I do plan on solar at a later date which hopefully would top off batts most days. Any info appreciated. Do you rely on your converter to charge your batteries or should I keep the iota?.
You can put your onan on automatic and it will turn on when the batteries drain down to a certain level. Look in your manual and it should explain, you can also run it on a set schedule also a manual issue.
