Iota ILC-3045 charger question
2006 Jayflight 29BHS with Iota ILC-3045 converter/power center.
I recently replaced my lead acid batteries with 2-100AH LiFeP04 batteries connected in parallel, and have 400 watts of solar panels. My Victron IP65 12 volt 15 "smart" charger works well to charge the LiFePO4 batteries from shore power. I want to avoid replacing the converter/charger which works fine, I've overspent my budget and am getting heartburn. Iota tells me my specific converter can't be readily upgraded to deal with LiFePO4, has to be replaced. It won't charge LiFePO4 to 100%.
I am planning two multi-month boondocking trips, don't use a tremendous amount of power but am curious about running the trailer off my 1000 watt inverter by simply plugging in its shore power cord to an outdoor outlet I installed that's wired directly to the inverter. I want to disable the charger portion of the converter with a switch if I do this to avoid unnecessary power draw to charge the batteries while I'm using them to power the trailer. Kinda circular, unfortunately, too bad "perpetual motion" charging is only a pipe dream.
Has anyone done this? Can anyone tell me which wires are best used to install the switch? I'm thinking input 120 volt would require less amperage of a switch than output 12 volt to the charger. I'll contact Iota again but the info they sent me refers to a later version of my converter. I'll pull the converter back out and check it again, maybe I can determine this a second time around. Thanks for any input! The circled numbered wires are from a query I sent to Iota re; their IQ4 module that's not usable with my converter/charger.
My next task is only as hard as I'll make it.
