  • Problems with Renogy 20amp DC-DC Charger.
    Usually your inverter charger is low amp charger. That’s why people use a dc to dc charger. More amps going into your battery.

    Make sure your 12v trigger wire is from the same 12v input source. 12v trigger wire uses the ground on the 12v input source to complete the circuit.
    Good luck

    From what you are saying it sounds like the negative fuse bar is not grounded to the battery ground. Are you sure your on the 12v ground bar and not on the 120vac ground bar?
    It’s better to be at the battery ground.
    Good luck

    So if your green light from the 12v trigger source does not light up anymore would mean you don’t have 12v on your trigger wire. Good luck

    Have you checked to see if you have 12v at the signal wire going into the dc charger. If you have 12v at the signal going into the dc charger but the green light is not active try using a jumper wire from the 12v positive cable going into the 12v input on the dc charger and run it into the 12v signal connection on the dc charger. If the green light lights up it means your other 12v source is not in the same ground source as the your 12v positive input cables to your dc charger.
    I have run 3 - 40 amp Renogy dc to dc chargers in my motor home and Jeep. I found that the 12v signal source has to have the same ground source as the 12v power input cables to work.
    I also recommend installing a 12v on/off switch in your 12v signal power wire going into the dc charger so you can turn off dc charger when you don’t need to charge.

    When you turn your ignition switch on. Do you get a green light at your 12v signal wire on the dc to dc charger.
    The charger will not activate unless you have 12v at the signal port. Also I have found that the 12v source must be using the same ground as the 12v battery input feed

    Just ordered my Starlink Satellite dish. Can’t wait to use and to be able to travel with the unit.

    Glad you have it figured out.
    Stay safe

    Have you checked the actual 12v voltage at the furnace. Then check your voltage at the battery. Both voltages should be the same. Now start up your furnace and see what the voltage is. It could be the voltage that the board is seeing when the furnace is running is below it’s shut down voltage. I can’t remember if it’s 10.5 or 11v furnace will shut down. You could have a poor ground or your positive cable has a poor connection. Easy to check. Run a wire from your battery positive to to furnace 12v input. Run a ground cable either from battery negative or from a good known ground spot on the frame to the furnace frame.
    Run furnace to see if that works. First check your 12v voltage at your furnace. Good luck

    It’s always nice to have extra gauges to look at.
    More information when driving is good

    Great idea. Just make sure when in British Columbia you don’t look at your cell phone sitting on your dash or cup holder. It’s a $368 fine. In the last 2 weeks 2 people have been fined for just looking at there phones which were upside down. So be aware

    I sure like your lithium battery install. Great job wiring, nice and clean. Are you going to heat your battery compartment? From what I have read so far on lithium technology does not like charging at low temperature. They shut down at a set temperature. I see a lot of people are installing them inside there coaches or trailers so they don’t get to cold or to hot. I’m thinking of going with Trojan’s new lithium battery 110 ah. Drop in replacement just like yours. Good luck and enjoy all those amp hours.
