Phil, Our friend, who’s an electrician and sailboat owner is coming by tonight to help me with the ATS layout. He’s pretty sharp.

My question about how does one run the whole panel thru the inverter(which we don’t need) without a disconnect of some sort to prevent the round robin scenario you mentioned. I’m unclear as to the internal workings of a Progressive Dynamics 4560 Li charger/converter. I don’t know of a way to disconnect the DC charging if the inverter is supplying power. That’s why I thought I could just run those two circuits thru the ATS. I haven’t sat down and figured it out yet.

One additional question. I read somewhere where the neg. and positive cable from the batteries to the inverter should be of equal length. True?
