I agree with Tom above. Even if the Firefly system was recharging the house batteries at a high rate of 50 amps (which I doubt), that means that the output power from the Firefly doing the charging would be 14x50 = 700 watts. Let’s say that the Firefly’s charging efficiency is only 80%. That means t...

Jorge, I fact that your AC outlets are working when you run your generator means that your transfer relay is working OK. Do your lights inside the coach work from house battery power? If so that means at your coach battery master switch is turned ON. If not then that master switch needs to be turned...
