I have a new van with a 2000w redarc inverter and associated control panel. I disconnected the lithium batteries to beef up their position in the box. On reconnection the panel asked what type of battery i was connecting, there were various codes, i had to guess as lithium wasn't an option? What option should I choose? Batteries charged okay under solar, however as a trial run before our trip north next week I rate devices TV , aircon etc to test the battery resilience, as expected the batteries discharged at a moderate rate. I then connected to 2340v but the panel would not accept the 240v input. I have tested the power input, and searched the control panel but I can't highlight the external power link. Despite putting the panel into storage mode the compressor fridge continues to run as a consequence my batteries are now flat. Would my battery option guess be part of the problem and how do I get the panel to accept the external 240v power to charge the battery. Im getting nervous as we are heading off next week. Thanks, Garry
