Go Power Monitor - Over Voltage

I've noticed several times a day while we're camping the monitor will flash non stop for 10-15 minutes and eventually work as expected. After reading the manual it would appear it flashes when its over voltage. Just curious if this is normal behaviour or if there's something I should be doing to resolve it. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find much via the forum or google.

I know nothing, but would ask, are you on shore power, or battery, is solar involved, a generator ( not likely )?

We've only battery power only. We've exclusively camped off grid so far.

We had a similar problem while hooked up to shore power. In our case it was a defective converter; not an issue when boondocking. I agree that you should call GoPower. They were helpful and easily accessible via phone.

I would check the fluid level in your batteries right away.

I second a call to go power. I had a code on my readout that said “not charging “. I called them and they were very helpful . I like it when they end the call “Try that,
And if it doesn’t fix it, call us back”.

Thanks for the suggestions. I haven't checked the battery level since we bought it in May. I'll do that when we're back at the camper this weekend.

Just following up to let you know the water levels were low, I topped them off and haven't had the flickering since. Now onto new issues with the fridge /battery drain on our current camping trip, we're currently working through diagnosing them with ETI.

If you haven't already, mention to them about the water being what I gather to be really low. I'm thinking it might cause other issues if it was low enough to cause the solar controllers over voltage indication.

Will do. Out of curiosity how often do you top yours off? We picked up the trailer in May and went on 3 two day trips so far, wouldn't expect it to be that low already.
