Battery Monitor Install With Victron Color Control GX Panel?


I have installed a Victron battery monitor and Victron Color Control GX for my house bank. The screen is indicating all of the DC and AC loads but I don’t see any input from an alternator? Should it be like this or is my battery monitor not properly installed? - Mark


Good question, you should definitely be able to see the current going in and out of your house battery bank. Perhaps your engine battery negative is connected directly to house battery and bypasses the battery monitor shunt. Remember all DC negative connections must pass through the shunt, all of them.
