Title: 95 Dynasty, Heart Interface Panel, Freedom 20,
Post by: jimwrye on July 04, 2017, 11:29:03 AM
 New engine batteries. New house batteries.
Engine and generator start and run fine.
Hooked up to 110v shore power and/or the generator running....

Inverter is charging batteries as it should.
Heart Interface Panel LED's light up like Christmas.
Inverter/charge...ON
AC Input ....ON
Battery.... Flashing slow and intermittently
DC Volts.... Cycling Up and down from 10 - 14.5 volts continuously
DC Amps,...Cycling from 30-40 continuously

Panel switch on or off, Inverter switch on or off, inverter 110 volt passthrough/output wall switch on or off, makes no difference.
If left connected long enough, the Overload lights up.
Only stops when shore power is disconnected and generator is shut down.

Help?

Bad batteries can cause wierd reactions like that, but you say they are all new.  That doesn't sound good for the circuit board in the Freedom. And Xantrex probably isn't supplying parts for what I assume is the old Heart Freedom 20 rather than the current Xantrex variant.  You may be shopping for a new inverter/charger soon, which unfortunately probably means a new remote panel as well.
