    Default Mecer 1200LKBS Inverter

    I am trying to connect my Mercer Inverter to my solar panels.This specific inverter used to have a solar charger as a separate item but has come to the end of the production line.I have tried a cheap Chinese PWM controller that just pushes the battery power back up to the panel and discharges in no time.So I bought a Microcare 30A MPPT solar controller which does not charge the batteries in the event of a power outage.While the sun shines it shows no discharge on the inverter battery indicator but with no solar the battery is almost flat...recharge with mains.There seems to be some interface in this inverter that blocks an outside charge.

    Anyone tried solar on this inverter.
