Overload help!

Added a 105 solar panel to the system with a sun charger 30 controller. Battery is a lifeline 4dl and inverter is a freedom heartland. With the panel hooked up and the charger going off shore power I get a overload light on the inverter. If I take the panel out of the system the inverter/charger works fine.

Both the heartland and the Suncharger have temp sensors and from what I can tell everything works fine when running separate.

Do I need to add a kill switch to the solar or is there some bonehead mistake I made?

Re: Overload help!

Probably need a little more info, I have not been able to find a manual for a "freedom heartland" inverter, so first if you could check that out and make sure you have the correct name, or give me more to search for to get the manual. I did find Freedom manual from Heart Interface, is that possibly it

I would check, what mode each charger thought they were in when they were both on, it really depends on each of the units on how well they will work together. So if you can find out if-they were in bulk, absorption or float. That should be doable for the Solar Controller.
