I lowered the thermostat to see if the auto gen woul start again when the AC called for it to go on.
Nothing. I can start the generator manually and it will activate all the 120 outlets go on and the AC will start. The generator will run until I hit the stop--this is the manual start switch on the upper panel
Am I correct that the auto start, when in the enable position the yellow light should blink when in the enable position and should start the generator automatically when the AC calls for it to start as well as when my house batteries need to be recharged?
Any info will be great so I can sort out if I need to do a manual start . I am trying to eliminate a problem and hope it is me not correctly setting the switches. Heading home from Florida and need to spend a few nights boondocking so wanted to check in before I arrive back to cold weather. Here I ant to assure that the heater and the fridge are kept running when in auto and when needed
Auto Gern Start will start the generator when the temp reaches the auto start temp set at the AGS control panel and not at the AC thermostat.
In a storage compartment your should have a control p[anel where you set parameters such as temp, battery level, run time and black out times.
I suggest to find and read the manual for your particular AGS system.
